... you grab your drink from among a clutter of staff drinks in the backroom and take a hearty slug ...


... and then realize THAT WASN'T YOUR DRINK ...

:eek:

Followed immediately by the twin thoughts of "What do I do now? Put it back and hope they don't notice?" and "I hope they don't have anything catching."

... hope they don't notice?...
Difficult to pull off when the light brown decoction is neither coffee latte nor chocolate milk but...


root beer & milk! :D

It was ice-cold and it had started life as a hot drink, so I'm not even sure the correct owner remembered it was there (or was even in the store anymore).

I opted to quietly put it back ... :angel:

dalesys: root beer and milk?!? :confused:

It was a day of brain burps. It started with me lollygagging at my computer around 11:30 a.m. when the phone rang. It was The Mothership boss.

"Didn't you trade shifts with [Coworker] today? Aren't you supposed to be here now?"

:eek::runaway:

I've slacked off on writing my shifts (and changes) on the big calendar in the kitchen, so yeah ... I totally forgot.

Family tradition. Mix half RB and half M. Kind of like a melted root beer float without the glutinous texture of melted ice cream. Commercially available (https://homedelivery.winderfarms.com/HOMS/ViewProductDetail?p=00001254)!

Uh, oh. Hope you don't get in trouble for that.

Well, Bossman certainly wasn't happy ... but I got there in record time, and then rushed around like the proverbial chicken with its head cut off when I got there, cleaning this and refilling that and emptying the other, so I think I managed to redeem myself. :)

You're luck it wasn't Pepsi and milk.

Ye gods!!!

Chewing 'baccy isn't much of a "thing" here, as far as I know, but yeah ... that would've been gross beyond words.

Bad things can happen when you don't watch what you drink. As in this classic example. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhOvYLOkw4c)

That was Laverne's drink of choice on the old TV show Laverne & Shirley. Made me shudder every time she'd mix up a glass of it. And I agree, it sounds disgusting.

root beer & milk! :D
I thought I was the only one who drank that combo as a kid! With me it was sarsparilla and milk and mom thought it was extremely weird...

And yet nobody blinks at ice cream in root beer (that is, a float).

But with a float everyone's expecting there to actually be ice cream. So no ice cream=ZOMGwhatisthis? Even when I tried to explain I was just skipping the inevitable mess of melting ice cream...

*just found a recipe for sarsparilla...may give it a whirl if I can find the real extract*
