Are We Open? Nein!

, , , , , | Right | December 29, 2020

My restaurant closes at nine. Sometimes, if we are super busy, I will not be able to lock the doors exactly at nine, but if it’s slow, as a manager, I can close up to twenty minutes early. 

I have an absolute idiot call at 8:58 as I am sitting at my computer doing checkouts.

Caller: “Hey, is it too late to order?”

Me: “We close at nine, sir.”

Caller: “But can I still order?”

Me: “How far away are you? We close in a minute and a half.”

Caller: “I’m at the [Hotel that is at least a five-minute walk away]. I can hustle over.”

Me: “Our door lock at nine, sir.”

Caller: “I don’t understand. Are you closed?”

Me: “We are open… for another minute.”

Caller: “So can I order?”

Me: “Can you get here in sixty seconds?”

Caller: “I’ll be there in a few minutes.”

By the time I got off the phone, it was past nine and one of my employees had locked the door. Around 9:10, the phone started ringing again, presumably him, and I just ignored it.
