Actual conversation with our server during dinner.
Me: Is this Diet? I’m kind of a stickler for that stuff.
Dayle: We both have diabetes, so
Server: Oh, I have diabetes too! I don’t think the line has changed, but you never know. Let me check on that for you.
Sever, returning with fresh soda: I double checked the lines and it’s definitely Diet Coke. Here’s a new one just in case.
Me: Thank you
Dayle: Thank you
Server, after we’ve gotten our food: I asked around and it sounds like we put in a new syrup box this morning, so the soda might be extra fresh. That might have been what you tasted.
Me: I’ve been battling some allergies too, so this was likely just an overreaction on my part, but I appreciate you checking.
Manager On Duty, as our food is being served: I just wanted you to know that we checked all of the lines to ensure our soda is accurate. I apologize for any inconvenience.
Me and Dayle: Thank you
