I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve had this conversation:
Me: I’m a dry person. What do you have for someone who doesn’t drink alcohol?
Server: Well, we have Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite…
Me: I said I don’t drink alcohol; I didn’t say I was 12.
OK, I don’t actually say that last part out loud. But I sure do think it.
This is a common challenge with restaurants of all shapes and sizes, star levels and prestige.
