Not Even Thinking Drinking

, , , , | Right | February 10, 2020

(I work at a tasting room, serving beer in house and to-go. We close at 9:00 pm. I get this call at 8:52 pm.)

Me: “[Store], how may I help you?”

Caller: “Hi. What time do you close?”

Me: “We actually close at 9:00 pm.”

Caller: “Oh, I am five minutes away. Can I still come?”

Me: “Were you looking for to-go?”

Caller: “No, I wanted to drink there.”

Me: “Um…”

Caller: *brusquely* “Never mind, don’t worry about it.”

(To-go options are quick, and I have no problem staying a few minutes late to keep customers happy. But for here can take people up to an hour, sometimes longer. Please observe opening hours. Workers want to go home after a long day!)
