Day 51 Closing

The voice on the telephone sounded desperate

What time do you close?

“In a minute.”

“Good. I was wondering if I could buy some roses for my daughters birthday?”

“Yeah sure”

“Well, I was wondering if it’s, like, okay if I come down and pick them up right now.”

“I’m closing.”

“Can’t you just wait fifteen minutes?”


When they hung up. I put the closed sign on the door and left.
