ME: What can I get you?
LADY: You don’t carry Busch Light, do you?
ME: No, I do not.
LADY: But I drink Busch Light.
ME: That’s it?
LADY: That’s all I like.
ME: Surely we can find something else for you to drink besides Busch Light? Maybe a cocktail?
(I slide a drink menu in her direction.)
LADY: I don’t like the taste of alcohol.
ME: Just Busch Light.
LADY: Just Busch Light.
ME: Well, I feel as though we’re at an unfortunate impasse.
(She stares at me blankly for a moment.)
BOYFRIEND: (interjecting) Just get her the closest thing you have to Busch Light.
ME: (to the lady) Okay?
(I grab a Point Special ‘Big Charlie’ can and set it in front of her, along with a pint glass.)
LADY: (mumbles to her boyfriend) I knew he’d give me something crappy.
