Joke of the day for November 20
I’ve always ordered beverages one simple way: “A Coke, please.”
Lately, though, this hasn’t seemed to work. Waitresses and waiters now often respond, “I’m sorry, we don’t have Coke. We have Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Mr. Pibb, Sprite, . . .” etc.
Tired of listening to the long list of soft drinks, I thought I’d make life easier. So one day I simply asked the snack bar clerk at a movie theater for a “dark, carbonated beverage.”
