Just as the sun goes down, so does the “open” sign on our favorite restaurants. If we lived in a perfect world, all of our favorite food places would be open 24/7. But sadly, we do not live in a perfect world and you cannot get a #4 from Jimmy John’s at all hours of the day. (But you can get breakfast all day at McDonald’s, small victories people.)
Since a majority of places do, in fact, have a closing time, you have probably experienced trying to hit up those places pretty darn close to closing. If so, you understand the overwhelming despair that occurs when the store is officially closed. And it’s even worse when they close earlier than stated.
Having worked at many food places, I get it. No one likes the hundreds of chores required for closing and everyone just wants to go home and sleep. But please, if I want to get a burrito at 10:50pm, lemme get a burrito at 10:50pm.
Luckily, Adele gets it. Her song “Hello” describes every inner emotion that we may feel when our favorite restaurant is closed. It’s Adele, how could we expect anything less?
When you walk up to a restaurant, but all the doors are locked.
The sign says 11:00, it’s 10:47.
Yet, everything is turned on.
We know you are still in operation, don’t lie.
And you totally see the workers trying to hide.
Sorry, your leg is sticking out behind the customer satisfaction sign.
So you look to your friend to figure out what to do.
You came all this way for food, there’s no way you’re going down without a fight.
So you try to call out to the workers.
Is the glass soundproof? No. Are the employees deaf? I sure hope not.
But they still don’t let you in.
What did you do to deserve this?
And your friend just says to give up and leave.
You cannot give them the satisfactory of winning.
And you have to tell your other friends not to come because it’s too late.
It’s just the way things have to be…
Then you realize you’re just being a big pain.
So you decide to go home and order pizza instead.
It’s whatever. Eating 1600 calories in one sitting is the best way to spend your night anyway. Or you can try and make some of these awesome homemade pizzas instead.
