After spending a couple hours at a local food festival, one of my sisters and I were sitting in a coffee shop. One of the employees came out to the condiment counter and set out a tall bottle of simple syrup (if you've never seen it, it's basically sugar water, it dissolves better in cold drinks than granulated sugar). The bottle was about 9 or 10 inches high.

A "customer" (I never saw him buy anything) walks up with a Sprite bottle with some liquid in it and proceeds to pour nearly the entire contents of the syrup bottle into it :eek: and walks out again.

Who the hell drinks sugar syrup?? :shrug:

I handed the bottle back to the coffee shop folks and told them what the guy did. They refilled the bottle. He came back a while later and started in again. I told him, "Hey, that's for everybody's use, not just yours!"

He glanced at me, poured a little into his bottle and went out. Shortly after that he left.

Asshole.

If he already has it, there's not enough insulin in the world to counteract that.

If he wants it, he's going about it the right way. :rolleyes:

Beats me. I had the same reaction when I still worked at a movie theater and saw one of my co-workers adding extra Mountain Dew syrup to her drink (we had some odd soda fountains where the syrup and carbonated water mixed in the cup instead of inside the machine).

I used to add a little extra (less than an ounce) when I got my drinks at a little Italian joint where I worked...but...jeez. Not THAT much. We had a soda "gun" that would dispense pure syrup (Dr Pepper was my drug of choice) if you just pressed down on the very edge. I got very good at doing that, very quickly, as the owners had the mix (intentionally) set as very dilute.

That guy's gotta be going full Cornholio.

Either that or he's taking it to use at home in his coffee.

I am diabetic and I think my blood sugar went up just reading that.

Looks like somebody is about to join the Junior Campers (The few, the proud, the geeky!)
