Berries and Cream Dr Pepper

Berries and Cream Dr. Pepper explodes…

I am a slave to marketing. All you need to do is to create a new product that I would be interested in, and I am making a purchase. If you developed a Hershey Broccoli and Peanut Butter Bar, I would probably purchase it just to see how awful it is. It’s just me.

This morning, I go to 7-11 and I discover, Berries & Cream Dr. Pepper. Doesn’t really sound like a great idea to me, but I get it anyway, along with a Coke. I come into the office, announce to the group at large of this monumental, but potentially disgusting purchase.

An hour passes, because I don’t need a soda as the caffeine and other assorted chemicals that the Coca Cola company. And I go to open the soda, and it explodes all over my cubicle. One hour after the bottle had been moved.

I’d blame my coworkers, but the only one who had opportunity to do it, is Tim. And Tim isn’t really that kindof guy. His reaction was not that of someone who just ‘got me.’ And, he’s in IT, so he’d have to help me with any damaged equipment.

Makes no sense. It was at least 60 minutes after the last time the bottle was moved, and then we have exploding cherry carbonated beverage spray all over my cubicle. Luckily it all missed my laptop. As that would have sucked.
