I work in a restaurant. The phone rings.

Customer: “Hi. What time do you close?”

Me: “Ten o’clock.”

Customer: “And what time do you stop taking orders?”

Me: “9:59.”

At 10:06, another customer walks in. My boss is standing over my shoulder.

Customer: “Hey, can I still order?”

Me: *Eyeballing my boss cautiously* “I’m sorry, but we’re—”

Boss: *Cutting me off* “[My Name], go do [task].” *To the customer* “Sorry about that, man. What can I get for you?”

The cooks in the kitchen stared daggers at [Boss] and then quietly declared a revolt. I made myself scarce as I cleaned up and clocked out.
