Another Small Town Moment…
Believe it or not, we actually have a Subway in town. Tonight I went to buy some food around 9:00 PM. The store closed at 10:00, so I figured this would give me ample time.
There were three of us in line. As usual, there was only one brain-dead teenager working the store. It took 10 minutes for her to get around to making my sandwich. When it was finally done, I asked to have my sub toasted.
“Sorry, sir. We shut our oven off.”
“What? You have got to be kidding me!”.
“No. We shut our oven off at 8:30.”
“But you close at 10:00!”
And then the snarky little 16-year-old rolled her eyes at me, and said:
“Do you know how HOT those things get?”
Moral of the story. If you want to buy a toasted sub, make sure you get to the Subway NINETY MINUTES before it closes.

Sigh. Only in Splat Creek.
