You know that episode of Spongebob where they close up the Krusty Krab and the guy is standing outside and yells “ARE YOU OPEN” and Squidward says “Can’t you read the sign?” which reads “CLOSED”. He proceeds to go “I’ll have a Krabby Patty Deluxe…” etc.
That happened today. I closed up at 8 PM (on a Sunday), the lights went out, and while waiting for my manager to come up to the front (you aren’t allowed to leave on your own, all employees who work til close have to leave together) a guy came up to the store, stared at the hours sign for like an entire minute, looked at me and said “ARE YOU OPEN”. I just shook my head. He said “I JUST NEED SOME GINGER ALE AND IMMODIUM”. Tough shit, dude. We were literally dead of customers from 5 to 7. You had all day.
