“They made me tell them in detail about the drink, I apologized profusely, and bought everyone a round of beers instead.”

“Everyone stared me down, which I thought was kind of odd, but I didn’t put two and two together until someone kindly reminded me that LITERALLY EVERYONE AROUND ME WAS STARVING and it’s disrespectful to eat/carry food in public. Obviously, I wanted to die.”
