A recent trip to Atlanta involved the following exchange between me and the clerk at the gift shop at a Marriott:
Me: Looks like you only have Pepsi products?
Clerk: That's what we have here in the case...
Me: I can't believe that I am in Atlanta and you don't have Coke products! Isn't that some sort of heresy? Atlanta = Coke, right?
Clerk: Oh, I can get you Coke products.
Me: Can you get me a dietCoke? I will pay anything!!!
Clerk: Yes, they are in the back.
Clerk returns with a cold dietCoke for me and charges me the same cost as the Pepsi products.
What is going on here? Was this a contraband dietCoke?
I have heard a rumor that some of the CLs actually serve Coke? Is this true? Which ones.
I go to a week-long conference at the Marriott World Center in Orlando, and I am usually one of the few people who has a car. So I stop at the Publix and stock up on Coke products to bring back to the resort. Every year, people I don't even know come up to me and say in a hushed voice that they heard I might have a dietCoke they could buy. It's a cottage industry!
