Like most revenge plots, this one falls apart a bit if you take a closer look.
Revenge is a dish best served… high.
A frustrated Ontario man took to Twitter on Thursday after a trip to the local LCBO (Liquor Control Board of Ontario) left him empty-handed — in more ways than one.
“Just got denied a 6-pack because I smelt like weed. Their words not mine,” Brad Boyd wrote on the social media site. “So, I kindly returned beer to shelf and lost a dank nug hidden from sight, but not smell, somewhere in store. Damn it… Enjoy! LCBO”
Like most revenge plots, this one falls apart a bit if you take a closer look. While it’s possible the smell from the dank nug will annoy a customer or two, it seems more likely it will make someone’s day when they stumble upon it. In the meantime, bud-less Boyd has no beer and even less pot to help him feel better about the situation.
On its website, the LCBO noted that it will deny service to certain patrons because it cares about them. “Although we’re a retailer, there are some people we won’t serve: those who are underage, lack proper identification to prove their age, appear intoxicated or are suspected of shopping for those individuals,” it said.
“LCBO staff challenged more than 7.8 million individuals in 2012-2013 for failing to produce valid ID, appearing intoxicated or attempting to purchase for a minor or an impaired individual. Service was refused to more than 322,000 people, with 84 percent for reasons of age.”
Boyd was in good spirits in responses to his Twitter followers later in the day. “Normally, I argue till I’m removed, but today I kept my head high,” he wrote. “For a 6-pack of Pabst. Seriously silly.”
“In that case, they did you a favour!” came the reply from a follower.
