Obviously you've never worked a till at a corner store. You get to know the regulars, who smokes what, what papers they read, who's an alchie, who's a scratchie addict.

This thread actually has me worried existentially for the first time because I go to the neighborhood liquor store for a fifth of vodka once or twice a week, and I don't drink, it's just a magic key to the panties of my malnourished chainsmoking 46-year-old neighbor

It's always bugged me that this doesn't even make sense. What they meant is "most alcohol at the lowest cost". Technically "most alcohol per litre at the lowest cost" is complete nonsense.

>>179694410
“Most alcohol per liter” is not nonsense. It’s clarifying that on an alcohol to fluid ratio that it is the best bang for your buck.
“Most alcohol at the lowest cost” could mean the above statement, but it could also just mean on a liquid volume basis.
Eg, buying 10 liters of 5% beer for $5 or 1 liter of 95% grain alcohol for $5. If you say “most alcohol at the lowest cost” you could technically be referring to the beer since “alcohol” is used colloquially to refer to the drink itself. The phrasing they used specifics that they are referring infact to the actual alcohol content.

You autist.

"Most alcohol per litre" means the strongest alcohol they have. Then you add "at the lowest cost" and it means the cheapest strong alcohol they have.

With his phrasing a small bottle of 40% whiskey for £5 is a "better" option than a large amount of beer for the same price, even if the beer technically contains more ethanol.
>>
>>179680945
then he would know buying alcohol at a convenience store is always more expensive than a grocery store or liquor store and he wouldn't be at a liquor store

As someone who works mind numbing customer service, I think you're the odd one here.

Hell, I actually quite like some of them, ones that are polite and have at least some care in not fucking up my day.

You don't get it, life in Britain can be very depressing, the weather is overcast most of the year, taxes are very high, it's overcrowded, loud, and a lot of the new towns, cities with their brutalist architecture is aesthetically depressing, haunting to the spirit.
Our politicians are overbearing and treat the people like numbers on a graph sheet, e.t.c. it's one thing after another.
So our humour is born out of depression, black humour laughing at how dull, monotonous, and repetitive life in Britain can be, it's a wit born of despair, of depression, of knowing the bottom but being able to laugh in the face of your own oblivion.

I can't recommend enough Blackadder Goes Forth for the best representation, example of this type of humour.
A Sitcom about being in the frontline Trenches of WW1 and being able to laugh knowing how utterly fucked the situation is, because what is the alternative? You lose yourself and become insane, you would cry and lose one's mind.
No, have learned how to tolerate and overcome the most bleak and dire of situations.

Zulu is a prime example of this, at the end where the British are completely exhausted and almost done, Michael Caine after seeing another huge wave of Zulus over the hill thinking they were about to mass attack again he smiles and shouts
>"Well come on then, what are you waiting for?"
A completely ridiculous statement but you must try and laugh, smile at hopelessness, it is only when you have experienced the very bottom will you appreciate the top.

Seriously, do you not get checkups at the doctor, they won't even register anything as wrong.

Same for when I worked at Spoons, you'd have the regulars queuing up outside the door before we opened, and as we'd open to sell breakfast about 30 mins before it was legal to serve alcohol, they would queue at the tills for a beer the minute it was legal.

Getting an appointment with my Dr since the Covid shit has been next to impossible. I do drink a very healthy amount of water though to try and balance it all out and help my liver bro out. I don't eat junk food or fatty foods it's just the alcohol that I'm punishing myself with.
I know 2 bottles a week may not seem like a lot, but to me, when I went a good number of years without drinking any alcohol, it really does seem excessive.
I do it because it helps ease the pressure I'm under, all the stress e.t.c. Fuck up I know, this is becoming like a blog now I'll shut up.

I went to a gas station 3 times and chatted with a nice girl who worked the register. First time, I get some cigs we small talk. 2nd time, I get some booze, she remembers me... it's the first time a girl had remembered me and wanted to talk more in a very long time. Third time I was already drunk and it was late. I showed up looking like shit and put a 40 on the counter. She asked me "do you drink alot?" "Mhmmm" "you shouldn't do that, it's not good for you" "mkay" I payed and left. I didn't want to drink anymore but I opened the bottle and drank anyways. I remember finishing the bottle and still feeling worse than I have in a long time. That was about a month ago, I haven't drank since. I don't want to be that guy who people worry about anymore but I know the longer I wait, the better that first sip is going to be.

>I stopped drinking vodka, but I'm still drinking 2 bottles of wine a week at the moment, it's not as bad but I know this shit is fucking up my liver.
I've drunk at least that amount for like 10 years now. Occasional few weeks or months off, but not often. Occasional spells of weeks or up to a month at a time of round-the-clock drinking, two bottles of wine or a bottle of spirit a day. I get regular check-ups and have only just last month been found to have a fatty liver, still no permanent scarring. I haven't drank since then and I'm feeling pretty good, but your liver is far more resilient than you think it is. Still, you're better off quitting now while you're ahead, but you don't need to be in fear of your health with the amount you've been drinking, especially if it's spread out over the week i.e. one large glass of wine a day.

Present tense. The additional "I am going to" or whatever denotes time. Future tense would be like killed/kill/killop with killop being a made up future tense conjugation of to kill. Instead we use another verb (modal I think) to denote the future and stay in present tense, so will kill, will being the additional verb.

Tense = changing the form of the verb to denote a change in time. (In French: je parle = i speak, je parlerais = i will speak).

English doesnt do this. Instead we use 'phrases' to show the future: "i am going to", "i will", "im about to", "lets...", "shall we...', etc.

If you want to blow your head further, then the "past tense" doesnt strictly speak about the past in English. Instead "the second form of the verb" shows 'distance to reality' in some way, either in narrating, saying something is confined to the pasr, speaking about hypotheticals, etc.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grammatical_tense

Youve been taught grammar for normies, and are confusing 'tense' and 'time'; a common mix up.

Tense simply = changing a verb form to show a change in time reference. "I will", "im going to", etc all have different functions, and arent strictly speaking about time, they are denoting mood and modality.

I used to do this but I figured, since I live in a small town, to just go to one gas station and stock up for the night. They know I'm a raging alcoholic but they don't give a fuck and I stopped giving a fuck too.

I think you're the only person who drinks super strength lager but is conscious of midweek drinking.
