He came into the store yesterday to apologize to me for freaking me out. He even said, "They were right not to let me in." WTF dude, if you knew that, then why were you harassing me and scaring the shit out of me?!? Sigh....
Well, not knowing what was going through the Owner's head, it might have been that he was unaware of the store's closing hours and wondering what was going on with the lights being off, and had a momentary panic.
Maybe he was just being an ass.
Regardless, he recognizes he had been freaking people out and apologized for it. Does he mean it? No, but at least he's paying lip service and has said he's sorry.
