We had to close the grocery store where I work at 2hrs earlier one night so the floor could be re-waxed. So we out a sign on the door 2 weeks in advanced stating the store would be closed on that day. So the day rolls around and its 5 minutes past the time when the store had closed and a guy comes to the door and stands there open mouthed just staring in. He starts to shake the door, I notice him and point to the sign saying the store was closed. He stares at the sign for 30 seconds and goes back to shaking the door. I open it open and tell him that we were closed and he says, "So I can't get anything?" I said, "No, we're closed." He stares at me for 10 seconds then hobbles back to his car. MFW

The pizza joint where I worked, if you called 30 seconds after close, the people still in the store would glance at the phone, chuckle, and get back to finishing the closing list. Otherwise, we would have had to turn an oven back on, dirty up the prep tables, uncover the ingredients, and do a lot of generally annoying ****, not to mention send out a driver who could otherwise have assisted with closing. So, yeah. Don't be a dick.

We still have to answer the phone normally after we close in case it's a driver, a manager, or someone even higher up calling.

That's fecal, man. My place was local, so we didn't have much in the way of higher-ups, and if we had a driver out after close, we would answer the phone, but we wouldn't take orders if it turned out to be a customer.

His comment was that he called a pizza joint 30 minutes after they closed, and still got a pizza delivered. I'm sure the workers were pretty annoyed at him, though.

Tons of Mennonites around where I live. They are a lot like Amish only not entirely broken off from modern tech. They have TVs and cars but they dress similarly to Amish folk and are hardcore religious.

"Mennonite" is a term for members of a Protestant sect that I believe had broke off from mainstream Amish teachings.

Amish people who use cars and electronics. Basically like Christians who don't read the bible.

Actually, I just finished working at my coffee shop. We have a small kiosk in a Hy-Vee, so there only needs to be one guy there at any time. I closed the place down, and I was wrapping up the bakery items. This guy comes up, notices that there's bakery items and cleaning crap covering every single inch of the counter, and (without asking if we're closed) said "I'd like a latte and mocha."

The only reason he got his drinks was because the person who normally closes my register was late, so I hadn't closed the espresso machine yet (if she was running on time she'd have been there before he got there.)

actually we do that sometimes at the small grocery store where I work during the summers. The thing is that it is on an island with a very cosy feeling to it, everyone is friends with everyone. So if someone is fifteen minutes late it not weird to knock friendy and ask to come in. Most of the time they actually get to run in and buy their things.

Then don't start putting things away before you close. That guy was a dick for doing that, but still... Do you remember back in school when the teachers would get so pissed for people packing up 5 minutes before class would end?

this may come as something new but **** that happened in school like the example you mentioned doesn't translate well to the real world. Bosses usually have a time they want employees out of the business when it closes so employees have to start putting **** away early to make that deadline and if they don't make the time they can get in trouble.

Hell yeah. Kevin Smith gets it. I also like Ben Affleck's line from Mallrats.   
"Haven't you heard the customer's always right?"   
"I'm gonna let you in on a little secret. The customers always an asshole!"

The thing that I love about Clerks is that it's kinda low budget, but it has tons of soul. It's like Kevin Smith wanted to tell a story, and the purity and spirit leaves all the glitter in the dust.

You live in Canada (By your photo) where they legally had to disqualify "sorry" as an admission of guilt because its said so much. This is why you do not have asshole stories. I looked into moving up there, because its so much nicer and people don't have a twig up their ass about marijuana

because there's a lot of 'it ******* hurts' as in: getting your nuts smashed in can hurt as much as breaking a limb but breaking a limb is going to hurt at the same amount for a much longer time
i always spend 8 minutes typing something long then decide that's too much and end up with one sentence, it only happens when im typing too
