A 5 Minute Play
Tory to cashier: I'd like a grande iced coffee with sugar-free mocha syrup, please.
12 year old cashier: Ah, oh , we don't have sugar-free mocha syrup anymore. We just discontinued it.
Tory sounding incredulous: But how can you make your light mocha frappucino then?
12 year old cashier: Umm, we just use the regular syrup.
Tory accusingly: Cheaters! Do you still have the other sugar-free syrups?
12 year old cashier: Yep.
Tory sounding resigned: I guess I'll have sugar-free caramel then.
Tory turning to address the audience: Beware! Starbucks is secretly trying to add to our bottom lines. But it does provide the power needed to bind a quilt.
