Failing At A Closing Argument

| Newburgh, IN, USA | Working | April 10, 2014

(I am 12 years old. I am going to a pottery store with my friends to paint pottery. My mom is calling to find out when they close.)

My Mom: “Hi. What time do you close tonight?”

Manager: “Eight o’clock.”

My Mom: “Okay, thank you! Bye!”

(At about 4:45 we walk into the pottery store.)

Employee: “Are you picking up?”

Us: “No…”

Employee: “Well, it’s too late to paint. We close at 6.”

(We tell my mom, who is at the vacuum store next to the pottery store, and she goes back in. She notices a sign that says that they close at 8. She told the employee, who then scribbled out ‘8’ and wrote ‘6’.)
