On our way home tonight, we dropped by the JC Hotel on the way home. Locals will know which one I’m talking about. JC are it’s initials, hint hint. We pulled into the bottle shop drive-thru. There was no one there. We called out. There was no one there. I’ll get out. I said. And still, there was no one there. 
Geez Louise. I called to Hubby. Customer service much! 
I put my drinks on the counter and looked around. Still, no one there. Scan them, Hubby called from the car. I think he was joking, but I did. Up popped $20 on the register and we giggled like kids. I’m an excellent scanner. I said. Snicker, snicker. But still. There was NO ONE THERE. So I left my $20 on the register, under a weight. Hopped in the car and we drove off. 
Is it possible, do you think, to be charged with self service in a drive-thru? Hubby thinks maybe it is. He wants to call the hotel. He’s worried that we should have beeped. I’m like, stuff ’em. Who doesn’t man a bottle shop at 8.30pm on a Friday night? 
Seems like bad business to me.

    that's so funny! I pack shelves in a supermarket & this reminds me of the night we found a packet of condoms with $10 in it – they must have been too embarrassed to go to the checkout with them so took the condoms & left their payment where we would find it! But fancy there not being anyone in the bottle shop. Maybe they went to the loo? But they should have had someone cover them…..

    I'm all for the self serve – then we can't complain about bad customer service – would we complain about our own service?I just want to put one spin on the maybe for you:Maybe you should have checked the cold room!A friend walked into a bottle shop one time and (unknowingly it had been robbed 5 minutes prior).The attendant was locked in the cold room whilst the bandits made off with the stash….Go figureenjoy your paid for alcohol Miss Suger – you can sleep at night as you didn't steal it :)have a great dayloulou, from hereiamloulou blogx

    Well why not? They have self-serve supermarket checkouts now…and you did leave the money. I'm sure they have security cameras on the till, so they'll see that you paid.

  • They cant complain – you could have just got your booze and done a runner for free!

  • Love it – hilarious way to end the week!!
