From Fuck Yeah Retail Robin:
One day we ran out of carbon dioxide and were waiting for someone to come with a new tank but in the meantime we were to inform customers that we couldn’t sell them any carbonated drinks and the only fountain drinks we had were water, Hi-C orange, and Frutopia.
This one woman ordered a Coke and I promptly told her, “Sorry, we don’t have carbonated drinks at the moment.”
She asks, “Can I at least have Sprite?”
I don’t think she knew what “carbonated” means. I dunno. Maybe she thought I said “caffeinated”?
