    Nope. You’re acting entitled. Their personal lives are not automatically your business, just because they run a business. Not divulging the details of closing early to you, is not, “by definition” flaking off. Get a grip.

    Business owners, just like everyone else, are allowed a modicum of privacy.

    “Closed today/early, sorry for the inconvenience.” Is all that’s needed.

    I also second (thrid?) the Joker. Often, people open their own businesses to have control of their schedules (usually doesn't work out that way, but that's what some are after). Now, I'll grant you, inconsistent hours could be an issue for the health of their business, but obliged to any customers curiosity? No.

    As Joker says, "Sorry we had to close early" is enough, although these days, it's probably smart to put the announcement on the business' social media as well.

    Everything here is accurate. And Spike-X was right to call it out first! A customer has ZERO RIGHT to know about the personal lives of the owner or staff. It's none of their business.

    After a rainy& cold AF Halloween Festival in lil 5 points last night I need to vent I was ton fungus just got to the festwas walking up a group of tipsy black ladies was coming towards me and one just reached Uber my dress and got fistful of me...

    I really hate girls (98% whom are white #jussayin) think I'm attracted to them which that gives them the right to grope me...slide their bodies against mine...touch my Fuckin hair(!!) Especially sorority girls A. It makes me feel as if they have this mindset that they can do anything to a black male body which is a heavy emotional to process tipsy at 1:50 in the morning. Even if the pink (shirt or sweater etc) or short shorts or twerkin wasn't a big enough clue I've started to verbalize "B!tch I'm not attracted to You! Like "Dam...If you ain't got no D!ck you're useless to me" but in a nicer way. B. It's super annoying when chicks I've known for years make a pass or say something and I'm like what? And they'll give a sly look like it's an inside joke.

    Not sure if it's slang/dialect or typos, but I can barely understand a word of this.

    I hate when people call dibs on a parking space before the current occupants have even finished unloading their groceries, much less started to back out of the space. I've even seen people screech to a halt and put their blinker on upon seeing someone with a cart of groceries approaching a car. Even worse is when they position themselves in such a way that other cars can't get by them, creating a logjam behind them.

    And I really get angry when I'm the one who is parked, and they try to rush me out of my space so they can take it. Well, maybe I'm not ready to leave yet. Maybe I want to check my phone or finish my soda before I pull out. You're no more entitled to this space than I am, so move along.

    That is actually common here, but most waiting drivers have the courtesy to ask or signal if the folks are actually about to leave or just depositing stuff. I've been on both sides of the situation so it's give and take, and I do wait in a way so as not to obstruct.

    Bro is a gay man. He is not attracted to sexually women. It's frustrating for him ( I'd venture borderline assault depending on how you look at it) when drunk women feel entitled to grab his junk.

    Sometimes I respond and then the person (a man) decides that this is an opening to engage in some harassment. So these days I'm selective to who I say good morning.

    Personally when people make snide comments when they don't get the response they think they deserve I think they're assholes.
