What is it with fast food? For years, whenever I'd go to a drive-thru and ask for a small Coke ... I would inevitable get a Diet-Coke.
I'd take this as a not-so-subtle statement on my physical fitness ... but nine times out of ten, the person who hands you the drink is neither the person who takes your order nor the person who takes your money.
What drives me up a wall about this is that I would drink nearly anything else. Cherry Coke? Fantastic. Root beer? Cool! Sprite? Amazing! Anything ... but ... Diet ... Coke.
What the fuck? Is this some sort of inside joke at fast food restaurants? Anyone who orders Coke gets a Diet? And then they just laugh like hell?
The worst part of this is that I'm trying to break myself of sweets. So I only have soft drinks on rare occasions ... and when I finally decide to have one as a treat ... and I get a Diet Coke ... it totally ruins my morning!
Yes, I know ... I should learn to taste it before I put my foot on that gas pedal. And someday I will learn ... unfortunately, that day was not today.
