(This happens WAY too often – ESPECIALLY with regulars.)

Me, ten minutes to close: LAST CALL FOR PURCHASES, GUYS, LAST CALL FOR PURCHASES.

(The people in the store nod and wave at me and continue their conversations at their tables. Note: these guys sit around for HOURS, but we allow it, because they make purchases throughout the day, and are generally pretty cool people…until our posted closing time.)

Customer: Oh no wait, you’re closing? Hang on! I need to get a Coke! Oh, and I forgot to get my cards earlier, can I buy them now?

Me, in my head: You’ve come to this store for THREE YEARS and you STILL don’t know our closing times???

(This is why I make a point of only closing ONE of our two registers.)
