Diet Coke Anyone?
The other morning, I was in the drive-thru at McD's ordering a "healthy" breakfast for my family.
My order was this:
2 Egg McMuffins
1 Extra Large Coke
After I gave my order, the intercom guy said, "Diet Coke? Did you say diet Coke?"
"No. REGULAR Coke." I said this very slowly, so there wouldn't be any mistake.
Well, I drove to the window to get my food and the food guy handed me my order. As he was handing me my super-sized beverage he said, "And here is your diet Coke!"
I said slowly, "Noooooooooo! I ordered just a C-O-K-E!" I emphasized the "K" sound for dramatic effect.
Food guy apologized and got me the correct beverage.
It wasn't until I was driving away that I began to suspect that they were hinting that I needed a diet Coke. As I sat, alone, in my car, with my big bag of greasy food, I began to suspect that intercom guy and food guy thought the entire order was mine alone. That I was going to shamefully park behind a building and shove egg McMuffins into my eager pie-hole, washing it all down with my sugar-filled beverage. I got a tear in my eye....and thought "How sweet and thoughtful." I didn't realize that McDonald's employed such compassionate workers! However, If I am going to binge-eat, it isn't going to be on McDonald's food. No way! I am more classy than that! It would probably be Wendy's! :P
Big C is the Diet Pepsi drinker....I drink everything with full sugar. Diet anything wreaks havoc on my poor tummy. However, almost every time we go out to eat, the server tries to give me the diet Pepsi. Are they hinting? Are they being sexist? What do you think? Has this ever happened to you?
