Saturday at about 5:30 PM, an undercover cop came through the Beer Mine and informed me that several Beer Drive-Thrus in the area had been robbed by armed thugs.
He was going around to give all places such as ours a heads up. I appreciated it, but it put me on edge a bit…made me a bit nervous.
I worked 11-7 on Sunday and with this info still fresh in my mind I began to lock up at 7 PM. I was in the office doing my closing shit when there was a knock on the door to the outside.
Nervously, I yelled to the unseen fucker…
The knocking on the glass continued and I said once again…
“We’re closed asshole!!”
The glass door is covered with a full door sized poster so you can’t see in or out.
The anonymous rapping continued and got louder. I bellowed:
“Damn it!! Get the fuck outta here or I’ll call the cops!!”
The knocking continued so I dialed 911 when I hear in addition to the knocking of the potential armed robber on the outside chuckling and then saying to me through the door…
“Hee. Hee. Matt, it’s Mike!!”
I hung up the phone; let the “incredibly amusing” owner of the Beer Mine in, as he was laughing his ass off.
Two seconds later, the Police called me back stating they received a 911 hang up from us and wanted to know if everything was alright.
I explained to the dispatcher everything was fine and the problem was, and I quote…
“My damn boss!!”
Drive-By Mike was rolling and so was I by then, but was still fucking pissed off as hell at the same time!! Fucker.
And there you have it…My incredible excitement from the Beer Mine yesterday. And?
I get to do it all over today and I believe the cops may get called again, because I am seriously considering taking the baseball bat we keep in the office and bludgeoning Drive-By Mikey with it.
