My life is hard and so I try to take pleasure in the simple things, especially since I am poor and can’t afford the complex (read: expensive) things. I look forward to things like a slice of pizza, a cookie or a soda.
So, on the way to my favorite lunch spot (read: cheep, 7-11 kind of thing) I was talking to my partner. I asked “what do you think the odds are they will have Dr. Pepper? Slim or None?” My partner said “None.” I agreed and when I went into the convenience store I decided to not check the soda machine for once.
After picking my lunch, I couldn’t resist just having a quick look on my way out to the checkout. The soda list on the machine was changed. I reached out and pressed the Dr. Pepper button. YEAH!!! Woo Hoo!!! Dr. Pepper came out. I pulled a cup and tested the soda. Mmmmmmm!!! It was warm but good.
I filled a cup with ice and started the Dr. Pepper flowing, happy that after waiting 6 months for this I was FINALLY going to get my wish. After the cup was filled I noticed something…
I noticed that it wasn’t fizzing.
I looked at it for a little bit unable to accept the truth. They haven’t fixed it yet. They finally changed the syrup but they disconnected the carbonation in the process.
