View Full Version : He was in tears.

A man came in today at around 8:40 am. He asks if its 9 yet.

ME: No, not for another 20 minutes.
MAN: Damn it! *He leaves, and is walking around outside back and forth muttering*

I deal with another customer who buys a 12 pack of beer and leaves.

MAN: *storms back in* Its 9!?

ME: Um, no. Not for another 20 minutes....

MAN: I thought you cant buy beer until 9 am on Sunday?

ME: No.... beer can be bought from 7:00 am until 2:30 am in Oregon. In some small neighborhoods you might not be able, but it depends on that area.

ME: .... I thougt... for the past ten years that I can't buy beer until 9 on Sunday. This makes me so happy.

He then proceeded to buy a bunch of cheap beer. He was sniffling. A big happy smile. It was so strange to see a customer generally happy and not attempting to belittle me.

MAN: "Thank you. I will never wait until 9 on sunday to buy beer again. I will be here at 7.

ME: ...ok.....?

MAN: *Leaves, with a smal song in his voice as he skips to drink his beer*

Maybe he works the overnight shift somewhere. Looking in the COC forum, I might be desperate by then in that situation (if booze was my relaxer of choice, anyway). :lol:
