Drives Me Crazy - Stealing Fountain Drinks
Scenario: Today at McDonald's
1. Teen walks to counter says "I'd like a water cup" (he doesn't order anything)
2. McDonald's Employee provides Cup
3. Teen fills up cup with Soda
As soon as the "water cup" was requested, I knew where it was going - stolen fountain drink. Forfeiting your own integrity for a little savings on some carbonated water, high-fructose corn syrup and some flavor.
At McDonald's they provided a small cup that had no unique distinguishing factors from their small fountain drink cup.
Yet, even at places like Panera (with their rinky-dink-bathroom-spit-cup-sized water cups) I see people who have filled them up soda.
I'm not one to generalize, but I will admit, these are usually teenage boys.
Boys...pay the dollar to get the Coke if you want it.
(Side note: Panera, I sometimes do want water, and wish your water cups were a little bigger, those little one's are obnoxious)
