So the past few days we've been getting extremely bad weather here - remnants of Hurricane Sandy. Or Superstorm Sandy, as they called it here.
Normally most people would stay in and ride out the storm, but not our customers.
It was extremely important for our old customers to come out in their huge cars that they can't see out of just to get the newspaper. They risked their lives and other people's lives just for a 75 cent newspaper. But that's no surprise I guess since they come out in snowstorms to read the freaking paper.
We also had people calling us - our phones worked but our power was out - and asking us if our lottery machines were working. Seriously? These people were concerned about playing their lottery numbers than worrying about whether or not the roof was going to rip off of their house!
The one thing that shocked me, though, was that we sold out of batteries. And condoms. Batteries and condoms! I get the batteries for flash lights and stuff (or maybe vibrators), but condoms?
I guess when the power is out there really is nothing else do to.
