Awhile back I was in my local QuikTrip. As usual I was getting a Diet Mt. Dew on my way to work. This QT is just a little out of the way, but I didn’t mind for one reason. There was an employee who was just adorable to me. He was cute and such a sweet guy. He would always call me by name and ask how work was going. It was just a nice way to start the day.
One day I am filling up my cup and he walks by and we start chatting. Small talk, but with a little depth for two people who see each other three or four times a week for a few minutes. After a moment or two he asked if I was alright. I said yeah, why? He nodded towards the fountain taps. My Diet Mt. Dew was overflowing, all over my hands and into the soda trough.
I was making a mess and I didn’t notice because I was so preoccupied talking to this nice guy. I said, oh crap, these cups are smaller than they used to be. Grabbed a lid and headed to the checkout. I was so embarrassed I had to start going to a different QT.
