Why is that considered a universal substitute? I get that same response all across the country and now also on Carnival ships. I don’t understand. :???:
The same thing happens to me all the time. I ask for ginger ale and I get the response. "No but we have Sprite" not even close! This drives me crazy because Sprite and Ginger ale are 2 different things.
