Would that require some studying and acting talent, or is it something you do anyway? ;)

Attention Caffiends!! The Inconvenience Store has acquired a 105 cup percolator. I also have two big ziplock bags full of coffee that someone left in my box truck after last years burn. However this will not suffice for the entire week. Any coffee/ water donations would be greatly appreciated. You bring the supplies and you get to choose the inconvenience (as long as its reasonable and feasible). That goes for any donation and you don't necessarily have to be there. Our staff will inconvenience people for you. Its the lazy mans participation.

105 cup perky later

Have you tried any "super caffeinated" coffee yet.

I got some at like a shell station or 7-11 or something and GOD DAMN ! that stuff was perky.

You have to call their unlisted 800 number and leave a message. No salesman will call!

How about no door? Or something really large and difficult to move in order to get in and out. Or require the removal of all clothing to enter, or if a customer tries to come in naked, tell him he/she has to be fully dressed, and when he/she comes back, make them undress again.

Also, always help the very last person to come in the store first.

I love it when you go somewhere and need to take a number and the machine is either broken or out of number tags.

The store will be some where around 3:00 we'll have signs in the 3:00 keyhole, at 3:00 and outer ring, and probably along the side of the road on the way in from the greeters station.

rotating door

Postby SecretOperativeBear » Wed Aug 13, 2008 9:41 pm

How about a rotating door, like at the fancy hotels.

EXCEPT.....it doesn't let you in, only out the same way you entered.

Maybe make people turn around when they talk to you (so there back is facing you)

Then halfway through whatever they are saying, you sneak off and someone else steps in.

And of course, makes them start all over. Kinda a physical version of calling anywhere for non-standard customer service or tech support.

Oh golly, what if you had a customer service department (window) that was even more inconvenient...

Like it was a mile away...

Bear if you can bring a rotating door you will be The Man. Personally my trailers pretty full and I have no idea where to get one. Probably one sitting around a surplus store somewhere for real cheap though. Go Surplus!!!

I'm all about the "Shirt, Shoes, No Pants, No Service" sign.

coffee

Postby hoochie mama » Sat Aug 16, 2008 8:34 am

Make the hypercaffeinated coffee for two or three days, and just when the regulars are used to it, switch to decaf. Repeat as necessary.

And now that nut allergies are everywhere... I've seen a convenience store here with a sign saying "Everything in this store may have come in contact with nuts". Makes you wonder just how slow the backshift really it.

Hooch.

no door from bear

Postby SecretOperativeBear » Sat Aug 16, 2008 12:33 pm

I'm afraid a door isn't possible. Unless I can find materials at BRC.

I'm just hoping to make it there with my bicycle.
I just might have enough gas money to make it there.
I'll need to rideshare after the burn to make it to the SF Bay area.
Then work a few days for a friend then drive back out to Orlando.

We will have that thing that you forgot.

Postby willyloafofphora » Fri Aug 22, 2008 3:50 am

So when you get to the playa and remember that _____ is sitting on your coffee table, remember the inconvenience store we, probably have that thing and if we don't we probably have something you want even more. This will be the store's final communication before playa time. The Inconvenience Store will be located in the 3:00 region. Look for signs in the 3:00 keyhole and at center camp. We will also be listed on the computer at center camp, playa info, and the Artery.
Hope to see you there,
Willy

Put up a sign that reads:
FREE BEER TOMORROW

When they come back the next day (oh, they will), don't take it down.

We had such a ridiculous amount of fun that I can still just barely keep a straight face. The store was a huge success multiple people told me that it was the coolest theme camp they had ever been to on the playa. They were probably just trying to flatter me because they needed something but its still a pretty damn good compliment. Much thanks to everyone who participated especially micki who gave us much needed relief and totally went OCD on our display shelves and also the homie who rescued Grape Ape when he had been lost for days. The Inconvenience Store will be back in 09 but hopefully under new management.
