We’ve all had those days where maybe we we’re too tired, or too busy, to really pay attention to what we were doing. Whether it was looking for something at a local drug store or getting ready in your own house, in an effort to save time you took a quick look at the label, grabbed it and used it. It’s only mid-way through using it when realize that was not what you meant to use. These moments always remind me of the age-old saying to not judge a book by its cover but sometimes it feels like it should apply to products too — or maybe I should just pay closer attention.
The elusive all-cal Coke in white congnito.
The victim: Diet Coke.
Apparently, I’m not the only one. Coca-Cola recently made some efforts to try and raise awareness about global warming and how it affects their wildlife logo — polar bears — but it actually ended up raising eyebrows at how unaware we can be as consumers. The company recently released a series of cans turning their signature red cans white. And the change has definitely made an impact, just not in the environmental kind of way. The soft drinks new look has been easily confused with the design of Diet Coke, giving those trying to quench their thirst a little surprise when the drink hits their lips. [via Jezebel]
Apparently consumers find it “impossible” to tell the difference. While the two do look similar in their color schemes, there are some clear differences. For one, the writing styles, and two, the pictures in general. Oh! there’s also the “Diet” on one and not the other, but hey, we all make mistakes.
Diet Coke lovers ain’t having none of that. Their outrage over sipping regular Coca-Cola has forced the festive cans off the shelves and back into hibernation. Seems a little extreme to me, but clearly people love their Diet Coke.
Here are some other easy mishaps that can cause a ripple in your day, but make for a good story to tell later! I’m personally guilty of the hair spray instead of deodorant mix-up. Unfortunately, more than once. Needless to say those are always interesting mornings.
Spraying your Dove Hairspray (above) instead of your Dove Deodorant can cause quite the sticky situation for your under-arms!
Or what about…
Even if your hair is a little burnt from all of that flat-iron usage, applying aloe vera gel, instead of regular hair gel, isn’t going to help heal that burn!
Are you one of those Coca-Cola lovers? Are there any products you always mix up? Any funny stories to tell?
