Anytime I go outside of the South, I always ask two questions when I get food: 1. Do you have Coke?
It’s a 50/50. If they say “No, but we have Pepsi” the automatic answer is NO. 2. Do you have sweet tea?
99% of the time: “No, sorry. I can give you unsweet tea and sweetener.” Me: “NO.”
While thinking: “That’s not the same! It isn’t hard to make! You just add sugar when it’s hot!!!” Often, I just deal with it and ask for water. -_-
