Hugely Important Thought For The Day

Conversations I have at restaurants:

“Coke or Pepsi”
“Does it matter?”
“It does to some people.”

If you warn me that you might give me either Coke or Pepsi, I can generally tell the difference, but if you just give me one and say it’s the other, it’s likely that I won’t notice.

Such is the nature of our political choices these days.

I've been told I'm sort of an asshole for doing this, but I always ask for "diet cola". Then when they say "Is Pepsi OK?" I say; "Yes, Pepsi would fall in the set of colas".

Can't help myself. But I do always leave a good tip.

I often just ask for a "cola", and get the same sort of response: Pepsi (or Coke) OK? I think they have to do that to avoid arguments with customers later.
