for this rampant outbreak of stupidity? I’m noticing more and more that even the simplest of things are becoming more difficult to accomplish. Thanks to people who appear to be afflicted with a supremely terrifying case of stupidity. Just yesterday, I went through a drive-thru and ordered, quite distinctly, one large cherry Coke and one small Sprite. This, to me, did not appear to be a tall order. Nothing taxing here, not even a complicated sandwich order. Just two beverages. One large, one small. When I got to the window, the girl looked at me blankly and asked, “That was one diet cherry Coke?” I said, with probably a little more disgust than was warranted, “Nooooo, a large cherry Coke and a small Sprite.” Hadn’t we just done this bit? I truly hate having to repeat my order. I take such pains to make sure I don’t rattle off fifteen different variations of items that I really would hope that the person on the other end of the line is listening and comprehending. And where the hell do they pull this “diet” crap from? Does the word “large” even sound like the word “diet?” I don’t think so.
Obviously, my expectations are too high.
Just a tiny rant for this lovely Tuesday morning…have a nice day.
