I have gotten a similar reaction when asking whether iced tea is brewed. The worst is when the server responds that it is powder/fountain, and you choose something else only to get attitude for not wanting their crappy processed beverages.

If I wear chinos or slacks, I might switch to a more casual outer layer on top. Of...
