So I cut my afternoon nap short because I don't want to miss the "Root Beer Floats Time" in the Bingo room. But when I get there I am told that the activity director went home ill. It's about a hundred degrees today. Root beers floats are cancelled.
Doesn't bother Cool Hand Chuck, he has a scooter and Starbucks is just across the parking lot. So off I fly.
At Starbucks I order a "tall mocha Frappechino," their special iced coffee. "Three dollars," says the clerk. I hand it over.
"Three dollars?" I think. "Last time I paid $4.25, and the time before that I paid $3.95. Never the same price."
Then I was handed my one quart Frappechino in a one PINT container. When I said tall, the clerk heard small. Oh, well, better luck next time.
I scooted home with my tiny iced coffee. There on my desk was a printed slogan from Cool Hand Luke.
"What we have here is a failure to communicate"
