Fill 'Er Up, Please!

I haven't been able to kick this crazy cough since I had bronchitis.     I was running some errands the other day and started one of my coughing fits and couldn't quit so I whipped into Sonic to get a quick drink.  

I love their new specialty drink The Bulldog Blitz because it is mostly cranberry juice with Sprite and some vanilla. 

Man:   "May I take your order?"

Me:   *cough cough* "May I have a Bulldog Blitz?"

Man:  "Would you just like the cup or would you like a drink in it?"

Me:  ....Pause... "I would like it all please."   

Man:  "You sure?"

Me:   "Positive."  (But in my head I'm thinking.... No, I am coughing my head off and just want to chew the cup!!!!   Of course I'm sure!)

Seriously, I am with Amusing.   Where do they get these people?

I would have said "No cup, just the drink"

I'm irritated they don't have my alma mater, so I'm not getting either.

BTW, you've been tagged; see my blog.

???? Do they have many requests for only the cup????

Good grief--does it come in a special cup or something?! And you should have said, "I'll pull around and if you could just squirt it in my mouth that would be great thanks." haha

What?? DER!!!!

Supermom said...

That must be quite the cup! lol

Sandi said...

Customer service is an amazing thing. So many stores, companies, etc, just don't get that. How bizarre. I had one of those moments, yesterday. I will be posting about it, soon. You will understand, when you see it. All I will say, in the end, I was at the police station filing a complaints.....

Suzanne - Hope you keep smiling!

Wifey - It does come in a special collector's cup or you can just ask for a regular cup. You could always ask your Sonic to make it for you or you could make it at home.

Confessions - When I told my Big Guy about it, he said "Do you think that guy was underqualified for Sonic?"

Betty - Hut! Hut!

Lizzy - I wish I had said that.

Doghouse - What is your alma mater? USM? The Blitz is maroon and the Rush is blue. Maybe they couldn't think of anything that would look right that fit the school colors?? (I'll check out the tag!)

K - Surely not!

Gingela - That would have been a YouTube moment for sure.

Carrie - Oh if only you would have been here for that moment.

Supermom - I know... now I am afraid to throw the thing away.

Sandi - Who knew Sonic was such great blog material??

Lisa - Now THAT is a tease!!

Hope you are feeling better. :)

What a smarty pants you were dealing with...not in the mood for it, too. What was the person taking the order thinking?

Willow said...

Hey, Deanna, sorry you still have the cough. Big annoyance I know.

The Bulldog Blitz sounds yummy and I just happen to be going past a Sonic today to get to Aldi's. Isn't that a happy coinkydink?

Feel better!

PS Posting from a different computer -- it's the only one that'll let me post here at all. I musta been a bad bad girl.

Unreal. I'm surprised they didn't ask you if you wanted your change back when you paid for it.
