Me and husband own a small bakery/sweet shop. We work seven days a week, and also during holidays. Our most busy days are Christmas Eve and Christmas, New Year's Eve etc. We work from 9-9:30 in the morning until almost midnight every single day. We basically live in our shop. We only close the shop for a week in August, and even that doesn't happen every year.
But once a year, on Easter Sunday, we work until 3 p.m. and then we close the shop and go meet our family and friends to celebrate the day in the country. We are always looking forward to this one and only half-free day.
Anyway some people don't like that. Last year I had a customer compaining because he wanted to buy his ice cream after the Easter lunch and not before, because reasons I guess.
But this year I had this "lovely guy" (LG). He bought some sweets and then asked:
LG: Why does the sign says that you close at 3 today?
Me: Well, since it's Easter we are closing early today.
LG: But what happens if someone wants to shop in the afternoon today?
Me: Since it's Easter most people buy their sweets until noon. We don't see many people after noon, and it gets very quiet here after 3. In fact we kept the shop open once during Easter, and we helped only one customer after 6.
LG: For that one and only customer you are REQUIRED to stay open. That's the professional thing to do.
Me: Sir, we stay open all the time. We don't know what it means not to work on Sundays or Christmas. We have the right to take half a day off.
LG: You should hire people to be here if you want to take days off.
Me: No, we shouldn't. We have the right to close our own business and go eat with our families once a year. Now please go and have a happy Easter.
I don't think I'll see this one again.
