Use More Words

Some passengers, when you ask them what they want to drink, say, "Diet." Nothing else, just diet. There are six diet drinks I can think of without even thinking, two of which I have right there in the cart. Do you mean I get to pick? Or do you mean you want an actual diet? And does that mean a few servings of falafel and a rice cake, or the actual paper that the week's worth of diet food is written on?
Pay no attention to the bitter man behind the curtain.

As someone who occasionally orders "diet," I can at least tell you why I do it: because I assume you have Diet Pepsi or Diet Coke and I'm trying to stave off the inevitable "is Diet Pepsi OK?" if I ask for Diet Coke specifically. Or vice-versa. I don't care whether it's Diet Pepsi or Diet Coke, I just want some calorie-free refreshment, perhaps with some caffeine in it. The presence of Diet 7-Up makes the entire process more difficult.
