Beerly Enough Power

, , | Right | August 27, 2021

I work in a small grocery store in a small local town. The power goes out and we don’t have any generators, so essentially, we are waiting in the store to see if the power will be restored or if we should go home.

We keep the doors open to get any cool air flowing through but put a cart in the doorway with a sign saying we are closed due to the power outage, but that doesn’t stop people from trying to shop. 

A middle-aged man walks up.

Customer: “You’re closed? Can I buy a beer?”

Me: “No, you can’t. We don’t have any power.”

Customer: “I don’t need power to buy a beer.”

Me: “We need power to run the register to ring up the beer. Also, we need power to run the refrigerator to keep your beer cool. You do need power to buy a beer.”

He walked away, only to come back a minute later to ask how long we planned to have the power out. I had to explain to him that we didn’t plan a power outage.
