I am outraged! Read this:
I had a long day at work yesterday. When I called the ladyfriend on the way home from the office, she offered to buy me a 6-pack on the way back from class.
“No, we don’t have any in the back, because it doesn’t exist,” he told her. His tone was far more condescending than helpful. […]“See?! You were wrong,” he said. She was 99% certain that she was, in fact, right, but the combination of the beer’s absence in his order book and his increasingly loud and antagonistic tone had her on the verge of tears.
I’m pretty sure that, in Ireland, you can be hung by the neck until dead for claiming that Guinness Extra Stout doesn’t exist. And if that’s not true, it probably should be. Scroll down in the comments to find out that this liquor store in in BROOKLINE! Sweet Abe Vigoda! What is the world coming to when a liquor store in Massachusetts is doing this to people? I was guessing maybe we were talking about some place like Nebraska. You know, one of those states where you’re not sure they even have beer. Although I can’t act high and mighty when this sort of activity is happening in a Bay State establishment.
I looked up the law in MA, and the punishment here is a little bit unclear. The last time it happened, the guy just disappeared. So there is no precedent.
Help me figure out what the punishment should be. It should be creative, and please make it fit the crime.Posted by James at November 7, 2006 5:24 PM
