Dress Standards at Canberra Bottle Shop

bloodnut 12 February 2009 52

Just for interests sake, had the following experience at a local store recently…

Last week in the middle of a heatwave, on holidays prior to driving down the coast I walked into a franchised liquor store in Braddon and was denied service for wearing the Australian summer uniform – boardshorts, thongs and no shirt.

Was wondering if any one else had experienced dress regs at a Canberra bottle shop before…

In a fit of hypocrisy they allowed me service when I explained I would like a bottle of Laphroaig and Ardbeg to take down the coast with me.

Nah it was Jackass… ‘Excuse you… excuse you!” from the checkout lady. Classic.

I remember a stunt they did on Jackass (or one of the many clone shows)

They found a store with a sign of
“No shirt
no shoes
No service”

So the performer wandered in, wearing just a shirt and shoes.

Ps. I prefer Cardhu

It says No Shirt No Service as you walk into 1st Choice, quick complaining.

But they served me – maybe you and your other staff should be consistent at least. I wont be spending my money with you anymore anyway.

So you’re boycotting them for being inconsistent?

Less clothes on = less places to hide gun = almost an OH&S requirement in Braddon bottlo’s?

Lagavulan ftw

If a topless woman came in I’m sure the bloke behind the counter wouldn’t have complained.

Somewhat unfairly, if a topless bloke walked into a shop with topless ladies behind the bar he’d probably be asked to leave.

Put a shirt on, you pig. Drinking single malt (ooh, we’re all terribly impressed) doesn’t make you any less of a filthy monga. Either you’re in less than top physical condition, in which case nobody wants to see it, or you’re in great shape, in which case nobody will ever love looking at you as much as you do.

Given that your vehemence is mildly out of character WMC I will assume you are a cheap scotch reeking fatty to whom the sight of non-fatties is abhorrent. grow up.

I do love my Islay single malts. Long gone are Vat 69 and Stones of my foolish youth.

Anyone who doesn’t bow down before Lagavulan is a fool and a charlatan.

I’ve bowed down after drinking it, does that count.

While its not a bad malt, nothing beats Laphrohaig.

Anyone who doesn’t bow down before Lagavulan is a fool and a charlatan.

But for something completely different try the Auchentoshan triple distilled lowland malt.

Laphroaig and Ardbeg? A man of some rare taste for a colonial! Add in a bottle of Bowmore and you have the makings of a quiet night in in front of the TV.

I’ve never heard of any of them. Is there some secret code I don’t know about?

Lagavulan for the win, beats the laphroaig hands down!

I’m sorry, but you’re wrong, very wrong, you couldn’t be more wronger.

I’m not suggesting anything. I’m just trying to make the point that if it was someone who justbands considered was not attractive, the reaction may be somewhat different 🙂

Are we suggesting that people with buckteeth need paper head bags now?

I am sure a bucktoothed person can go into a bottlo and buy booze.

a) I don’t catch buses….so that one’s easy
b) Actually, that’d be just fine. 😉

a) What, have you no environmental conscience! Gasp! (Jokes)

b) What if she was a smelly chick? What if she had buck teeth? What if she was a post-op trannie? What if she was not your idea of the ideal female specimen?

You get my point 😛

…if she was a post-op tranny then what’s the problem? 😉

Oh..I may not catch buses, but I do ride my bike.

& yep, I get your point. 🙂
