(I work at a video game store owned by my father and a few other guys in a partnership. We have had the same hours running since we got started. Our hours are also posted on a sign right by the door.

That night, my father and I were wrapping up everything and getting ready to head out. We had closed about half an hour ago. Our sandwich board that we stand up outside the door during our open hours had been brought back inside the store. Our open/closed flip sign, which has our hours listed on it, was flipped to closed. Our big neon “OPEN” sign that hangs above the door was off. The house lights were off. The computers were shutting down. The only thing we hadn’t done to finally close up was lock the front door, because that’s where we leave through.

A lone customer walked up and pulled open the door.)

Customer: “Oh, you guys are open?”
