    (We close at 7:00 PM every Sunday; a couple was still shopping in my department at 7:13pm and we already gotten a call from security to tell them pretty much to get out)

    Me: “Ma’am, just to let you know we’re already closed. If you need to buy something please bring it to the counter now.”

    Customer: “Closed? what time do you guys close? It’s only 7:13!”

    Me: “We closed at 7:00.”

    Customer: “Honey, hurry up. They’re about to close. Who’s ever heard of a store that closes at 7:13pm, thats just so weird!”

    Me: “Ma’am, we closed 13 minutes ago; we’ve been closing at 7:00 for at least the past 6 years I’ve been here, and there’s nothing weird about that.”

    Customer: “Well I just thought that it would make more sense if you guys closed on an hour. Or at least least have an announcement if you guys are closing at some queer hour.”

    Me: “Ma’am, there were 4 announcements loud and clear before we closed.”

    Customer: “But why would you close a store at 7:13? That’s just queer, are you sure the store is even closed?”

    Me: “Again ma’am, we closed 13 minutes ago at 7:00, and yes I’m sure the store is closed–why would I be lying?”

    Customer: “I don’t know. *her boyfriend comes out of the fitting room* “Honey c’mon, let’s buy this stuff and get out of here. Can you believe they close the store at 7:20? Isn’t that just so weird?”

    Me: “7!! We CLOSED at 7 o’clock!!”
