(NW Florida Daily News)   Don't you hate it when you try to purchase a 32-ounce bottle of Magnum and a bottle of Schlitz Bull Ice from a convenience store and the clerk says you're going to have to wait twenty minutes until beer sales start up again at 7am?   (nwfdailynews.com) divider line 40

I don't think I'll ever understand this, maybe it's because I grew up in Pennsylvania.  You KNOW what time alcohol sales are, and you KNOW if you're going to want to have a supply of beer on any given day.  It does not take much planning to ensure the steady flow of alcohol.

That requires not only forethought and planning, but actually doing something before it's too late. Why do you think so many people wait until the day of the snowstorm to raid the grocery store of beer and bread even though the weather forecasters have been telling them it's coming for a week in advance?

In the state of Washington you can't buy beer/wine/booze anywhere before 6 a.m.

It's not the planning that's hard, it's the execution. If the liquor store is closed on Sunday, it's easy to say, "Just buy your Sunday booze on Saturday. Dummy," But if you buy your Sunday booze on Saturday, how do you keep from drinking it on Saturday? And when you do drink it on Saturday, that just means your hangover on Sunday is that much worse, and then you really need that Sunday booze. And you can't get it.

I'll never understand timed alcohol sales, people will find a way to get their booze one way or the other. Indiana has no sales on Sunday so everyone here just goes up to Michigan to get it. When you point out the lost sales and tax revenue some State Reps just shiat their pants and babble incoherently.

I don't get it

Yup. CSB: It's particularly rough when you wake up in an open field with coyote women on each arm. Worse when after chasing off the hags, you get turned down at the 7-11 and wander back into the bar you were in 5 hours before, only to be harassed by your bro's regaling you with your drunken exploits the night before... "Dude, you walked in before closing with those two skanks and were actually PROUD of them!" "What happened to you, anyway?" Well, I woke up in this open field... thought about chewing off both arms but...

and the laffs keep on comin'

Don't know about that.  In college some friends used to work midnight to 6am restocking so when they got off of work they would stop for a cold one.

Went scuba diving in  Curacao and we went on the Amstelbrewery tour.  It started a 9am and it was all you could drink while on the tour.  When the cruise ship seniors looked at each other in shock the hostess told us beer was just like toast grain, yeast and water so beer for breakfast was like tow pieces of wheat toast.

I remember some guy on the radio who was sent out for a remote broadcast complaining ON AIR: "Did you guys know you can't get beer in Dekalb county before 8am?"

DJ: "Uh no, can't say it ever came up. So, how's traffic?"

He was soon off the air.

No, what I hate is when I want to comment using something other than that devil-incarnate Facebook, and they give me other options, and each option just wants you to use your info and ID from those other options to sign into Facebook! I have not had, do not have and will not have a Facebook account. Why is that so difficult for other people to accept????

The Florida Tag Rule is simple:  If it happened in Florida, the Florida Tag Trumps All.

Also, I'm also one that doesn't understand why we still have timed alcohol sales.  In New York, it used be you couldn't buy beer before noon on Sundays, but several years ago they finally changed it to 8 a.m.  However, counties can make stricter laws.

Damn Blue laws. Pandering to the "no-fun"crowd..

Granted, the LCBO fails at promoting smaller brands and there is some price-fixing - there is still quite a way to go...BUT

Stores are open 7 days a week and longer hours
Selection has improved
The stores are bright and consumer-friendly. Not those sketchy "package stores" I've bought stuff from in the states

And, back in the 1960s...

Stores were open only Monday-Friday. I remember huge lineups before holidays
You had to fill out a GOVERNMENT PURCHASE ORDER FORM each time, (supposedly so the nosy provincial "seat-warmers" could check on how much you were buying and could cut you off!) for each purchase, and wait in a line to buy your booze
The clerks were your typical unionized government clerks. Slow as those you deal with getting licenses.
You'd wait in line only to find they were out of stock and had to fill out a new form and wait in line AGAIN.

Granted, things could really stand some improvement. But things have be MUCH WORSE.

The garbage trucks would pull up to my local bar in Philly since it opened at 6am and they got take so they had something to drink while riding around in a 20 ton trash truck boozed up.

And the beer was nicely chilled, only problem back then were the store hours, and no Sunday service.

Reminds me of the policeman patrolling Lover's Lane late at night when he comes across an older man fondling a girl who clearly looks to be under the age of consent. The policeman asks "Is that girl old enough to legally have sex?"

The older man looks at his watch and says "She will be in ten minutes."

32 ounces?  When I was a kid, they called that a quart.

But a 32-ounce bottle sounds like a lot more, doesn't it?

At least it's not Connecticut.  Better get to the store before 8pm if you want beer.
