bad_service

So this wasn't horrid service, but it was funny and left me kind of scratching my head.

My fiance and I went to the movies yesterday afternoon to see the Ride Along. About halfway through the movie, I finished my pop (Sprite!) and went out to buy another one and some candy. Bought them, and went and sat back in the movie. Took one sip of the Sprite, and it was just soda water.

So I went back up, with a full cup still.

Me: "Hey sorry, I just bought a Sprite and I don't think the Sprite is working properly, because it's just carbonated water."
Girl: "It's working."
Me: "Okay.. well, this is just carbonated water"
Girl: "I'll go check."

she went to the back and a few minutes later came up and said,

Girl: "I just looked. It's working, there's nothing wrong with it."
Me: "Okay, well this one is just carbonated water"
Girl: "What do you want?"
Me: "Well, I'd still like Sprite, if it's working"

So she dumped the cup and refilled it, I took a sip.

Me: "Nope, still just carbonated water."
Girl: "But it's working."
Me: "You can try a sip if you want, it's just carbonated water."
Girl: "Okay, I don't get it - what do you want?"

Me: ........ "A coke."

I just thought it was funny. How can you tell just by looking if Sprite is working?? Sprite = clear. Carbonated water = clear. She was so adamant that the machine was working and that I had Sprite, but if she had taken one sip, she'd see it's just soda water and the flavor is missing.
