I’m just a Liquor Store “worker” so I don’t have much to professionally contribute. But what I can tell you, is that a lot of fucking people aren’t taking this seriously. Last Monday, our governor told the city of Denver, that liquor stores and pot stores were gonna be shut down for a minimum 2 1/2 weeks. I was actually fine with that. We had a plan to “loot proof” the store. Our boss is a stand up fucking guy and would have paid us during the shutdown. As a team, we all stepped up and went to work to relieve the 3 people that were working. I have never seen anything like what I saw before, in my life. 50-70 people shopping/waiting in line for just over 3 hours. It was fucking disgusting. Fast forward to this week.
We started to close the store at 730-8pm Instead of 10-11pm. Each day this week ,we have done weekend sales numbers.
A lot of people are coming in “bored” shopping. They say shit like “I’m just browsing, I haven’t been out of my house in days”. The rest are the people that come on once, twice, thrice times a day to get a shot, a beer, a pint of vodka.... mix all that together, we have been reaching out 7 customers at a time capacity quiet often. Getting people to adhere to our extreme distancing policy has been a pain in the ass. Some people are cool about it, but others just blow this whole thing off as no big deal. Now as much as some people here know, I can be a huge asshole. But believe it or not, that’s not something I really like doing. Well, if you don’t stay the fuck away from people or follow the rules we have put in place, I will haul off on you. I honestly believe, it’s going to take a complete shutdown of most major cities to curb this. #endrant I’m off to try and decompress and stop crying to play some games.
