I love Sonic. One of the greatest gifts I've ever recieved was last Christmas when my Mom gave me a Sonic giftcard and told me - GET THIS - that if she saw it's balance fall below a certain amount, she would refill it. Do I have the greatest Mom in the world or what? Needless to say, I go to Sonic a lot, and think of my Mom a lot :)
Anyway, so I was yet again at Sonic getting me some happy hour, and this is what I overheard in the van next to me:
[Sweet older lady to the Sonic speaker]: Hi. Uh, you all have wireless?
[Sonic employee]: I'm sorry ma'am, can you repeat that?
[Lady]: Wireless. My daughter said you all would have wireless here so I can get my granddaughters pictures.
[Sonic]: Are you looking for wireless internet?
[Lady]: Well, she said it would come through on the email.
[Sonic]: Ok, I think you're looking for wireless internet and I'm sorry, we don't have that here.
[Lady]: Oh I'm sorry, she said you would. (looking around) This isn't the Starbucks?
[Sonic]: No ma'am, this is Sonic. But there's a Starbucks right up the road.
long pause as the sweet older lady looks intently at all the signs
[Lady]: Well shoot, give me a cherry limeade.
Y'all. I sat in my car and laughed so hard that I about had vanilla rootbeer coming out my nose. Thank the Lord for tinted windows. How anyone confuses Sonic for Starbucks I have no idea, but boy do I hope someone helped that sweet lady get the pictures of her granddaughter off of her email.
