In the same video, she also displays a bottle of tequila, with the words, “This is more like it.”

Based on the videos and the comments, it seemed Gretchen ordered “alcohol” and the attendant gave her a bottle of rubbing alcohol instead of an alcoholic drink.

MIXED REACTIONS. Gretchen’s post get mixed reactions from netizens.

Some find the incident funny.

Others are miffed and calls Gretchen “mean” and “mababaw.” 

They say she should have been more specific with her order.

And there are those who take the side of the attendant, saying they would have done the same thing.

More rational netizens dismiss the incident as a case of miscommunication between Gretchen and the attendant.

But, really, what's the fuss?
