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

i work at a car wash and when something inside the tunnel breaks like a brush or something we put up a sign saying "closed for maintenance". this chick pulls up and honks. "are you open?" i say "no sorry, a hydraulic hose burst and is spraying slimey green oil all over everything and we have to fix it before anyone else can go through" she stares at me for a second and says "so... can i go through?"
