Alright everyone, I have the perfect solution to all of this bull****. Ya ready? Here it comes.
Since Coca-Cola and Pepsi companies give money to companies to only use their product, it's pointless to say "Yeah I want a Soda" Because the next question will be referring to what kinda soda do you want. It's pointless, it's like saying I want something to drink that isn't water.
With that said, it's then pointless to say "I want pop" Because what is pop? Same thing, it could be a coke or it could be pepsi. Also pointless.
I normally drink diet drinks, so whenever I order anything diet I just tell the people "Diet" and they get it. There's only 1 diet they carry obviously, so there's no hassel or wasted time saying "Oh I'm sorry we only carry diet *blank*"
I haven't tried this much with a regular drink, I think I've just said "And I'll have a regular whatever you have." So far that's worked 3/5 times. But I wouldn't recommend that one
Make something up.
Because Coke = Coca-Cola, Soda = Everything, and pop = Everything.
get with the program
