So, went shopping this morning for groceries. Wanted to get it out of the way.

pick up some baby formula, cookies, a pizza, etc etc.
oh and a pack of beer.
get to the checkout...

The 16year old girl asked me, "do you want to wait 10 minutes?"
I replied? "huh?"
She gestures to the beer, "you can wait 10 minutes and then buy it if you want?"
I reply, "why would I want to wait 10 minutes? The beer is right there..."
chicko says, "I can't sell it to you yet, its before 10am!"
Me, <insert very blank dumfounded look here> "you're shitting me?!"
her, "nope, can't sell you beer before 10am."
me, "Am i in Tennessee?"
she laughed.

seriously, wtf? I just don't get that law at all.
Some blue laws i remotely understand, like no working (paramus NJ), no selling cars (forcing a day off), etc. but no buying of alcohol before 10am, from a grocery store which is already open? wtf are they protecting me from?

We have wierd Sunday trading laws over here in the UK too... I've been in standard shops that are open for 'browsing' only before 10am before now - makes no sense to me in this day and age.

I think it's just a Sunday thing, but I'm not sure. I've never tried that myself.

You drunk bastard.

Good luck with all that. As a fellow pagan-Buddhist blend you'll be stuck in hell forever.

I at least have some +karma built up from a few years as a volunteer EMT, so maybe the red guy will let me have a cold glass of water every now and then? I wonder if the bus has seats? I would think the bus to hell would be standing room only. Though... maybe its really posh and comfy, with the AC cranked up, just so when you get out for the first time, it really has full impact that you are now in the suck ass of hell. Kind of like walking out of a business here in the summer... lol

I dunno... if Amish and their self restraint and lack of amenities are Closer My God To Thee then clearly, the ride to nastiness must be a plush leather lined limo IMO. Or perhaps a Tesla, for front edge Greenie hellraisers.
