Temp Head Honcho (THH) just came to my desk -- with a diet Pepsi in her hand --and told me she'd asked a coworker to buy a new case of soda from Costco. The conversation:
THH: Does it need to be any soda in particular?
me: Yes. Diet Pepsi.
THH: Pepsi One?
me: Diet Pepsi. Like the one you're holding.
THH: What about Coke?
me: Diet Pepsi. I buy diet Pepsi.
THH: Well, I guess I can text K and tell her to get diet Pepsi. But if they don't have it, what about Coke?
Good. Grief. I have to get a new job. If only Penguin hadn't gone with the other candidate...
