Frikken Blue Laws


Sometimes this country really pisses me off. We are among the world's leaders in pornography, munitions, and various other nefarious goods and services, but heaven forbid I try to by a bottle of fucking wine on a goddam Sunday!! I just went to Target, and they had the wine I like on sale, and since it was after 11am I knew that I could buy that wine. But, for some arcane reason, and even though every other store in town sells alcohol after 11am Target doesn't sell it until 1pm!! It was 12:45, and the cashier asked me if I wanted to wait, but fuck that! Granted my $10 probably doesn't mean squat to Target, but if they're going to take such an extremely parochial attitude, I'll take my business elsewhere. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!

Makes no sense to me either.

You can not buy wine on a Sunday before 1am or 1pm (depending where you go)? How strange!

We, Canadian (as far as I remember) don't have such law... The only day we're not allowed to sell booze is on election day. As if it would make a big difference in selecting Moe or Curly?! ;-)
