Beating the system

I was doing a job in a mall in upstate New York and decided to grab some fake chinese food (I call mall chinese places that because they are like the McD's of chinese food). Anyway, when I got to the spot to pay and get soda I noticed they were charging $2 for a large soda but the guy was filling the cups to the brim with ice first. I have seen this before, they fill it with ice so they really only give you a good four sips of soda and they get $2 for about .50 worth of soda. I don't think so.
I asked for a large coke, no ice. Yeah, that's right, no ice for me buddy. He didn't immediately fill the cup, first he stared at me for a good 5 seconds then asked "no ice"? Nope. None. Surprisingly, he filled that cup to the brim. When he put the top on some came out of the straw hole on top. That's what I'm talking about, I want my $2 worth of soda and not a drop less!
Beating the system, even the small victories are sweet.

  1. Around here they usually give you an empty cup and you fill it yourself. Ice, no ice, refill, they don't care.
