It’s the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, even though Monday is my normal day off I am rostered on.  The day is classed as a public holiday which usually means we work to weekend opening times.  We are inundated with phone calls all day asking when we close, most accept the time, except one woman.

Woman “What time do you close today?’

Me “At 4pm”

Woman “The website says you close at 5.30”.

Me “Yes normally we close at 5.30 but today we close at 4pm”

Woman “But the website says 5.30”

Me “Today is a public holiday and we close at 4 today, 5.30 is what we normally close on regular weekdays.”

She finally accepts and finishes the call.

About an hour later she comes in and as I am finishing serving her.

Woman “You’re closing at 4 today?”

Me “Yes we are”

Woman “The website says 5.30”

Me “The website just has standard opening times, it’s a public holiday”

I glance at the clock and wonder why she’s so upset at us closing at 4, seeing as it wasn’t even 12 oclock yet.
