I work at a Drive Thru liqour store in Australia AmA
Currently have 2 hours left of my shift on a Thursday night. It is dead, boring and cold. Ask me shit.
New proof : https://imgur.com/a/4QqgmaA
Edit: Well shift is done, I'm out. Adios
Edit 2: Jesus fuck this blew up, I'm still up at 3am. Keen to answer few more questions.
Goodnight. Have th, be safe, love yourself and always do it for the boys.
Yes you can.
Goon bags for everyone!
best thing about them, is turning them into pillows afterwards
Is there an Australian liquor that only Aussies seem to enjoy?
Not so much liqour, but a lot of us do shoeys, which is where you pour your booze into your shoe and drink it out of that.
Do that infront of any aussies in their 20s and youre an absolute legend and honorary aussie.
Seriously? I honestly don’t know if you are fucking with me, man
Edit: google says you aren’t fucking with me. Looks like I’m gonna be drinkin from a shoe if I come visit
Fuck oath you are.
I ain't fucking with ya. I've done more than a few. It's always a blast especially when it's 3/4 of the way through the night already fucked off your face and your mates turn to you and say "do it for the boys"
I’d fuckin do one, no doubt. I’d have to be shitfaced first, but that’s not a problem
Talk your boys into one night out on the piss.
What's the most expensive thing you sell at the bottlo? Also what state are ya in? Haha
Most expensive thing I sell, or the store sells? Expensive thing the store sells, $94.98 for a bottle of vsop cognac. Most expensive thing I've sold was about 4 slabs (24 bottles/cans In a box) which came to about 200+
What's the most bogan thing you've ever seen?
A Bogan party I went too. Everyone dressed up in wife beaters, footy shorts, thongs (flip flops), carrying goon bags (cask wine) fucking thing Bogan you name it.
Have you ever had someone drive up absolutley shitfaced? Have you called the cops on anyone?
I've had someone drive up completely cunt eyed before, and he started abusing me, when i wouldn't give him any promo stuff, which at the time i didn't have anything. So to not escalate the situation, served him is booze, and called the cops after he left.
Dunno if they got him or not.
I admit I am at fault for that. But hell, it ain't worth my head getting kicked in over $20 for booze cause he's drunk.
My safety comes first before anything else, considering I am working by myself outside.
Mate trust me, you’re not at fault.. being able to justify your actions is what counts. .. your safety comes first
Damn straight it does
What type of promo stuff?
As in, you buy a slab of x beer, get a beanie, buy x get a stubbie holder, just that type of stuff.
Why do ads outside Aussie lie about Fosters being the most popular beer?
I have no clue, it's just like with corona being advertised as Mexico's most popular beer.
I've tried fosters, it's an alright drop.
I thought it was piss water myself. Do you sell Carlton?
Fosters is a lot better than crownies.
Yeah sell Carlton draught and Carlton dry, difference is Carlton dry has lower carbs.
You either have the worst taste in Australia or you are a complete bullshit artist.
ya got me.
I like the draught.
Oh here's one I recall hearing before. Is it true supermarkets in Australia can't sell booze.
Supermarkets have their own departments for booze, I.e you go to woolworths, it's BWS for the booze, Coles is liqour land.
Supermarkets do have booze in them if they don't have a bottle shop next/in them.
Dunno where ya got that from, but they need to have a liqour license to be able to sell booze.
How many unruly customers do you get?
It varies from night to night, sometimes I get junkies coming through, but they're polite and just want their booze. Where i work majority of the customer base is regulars.
Sometimes I get rude as hell customers, I'd say 1 in every 10 or so, friday and Saturday nights are when the creatures are out.
I understand that, I work fast food and it's like that every weekend.
Rip us. One thing i will always tell people when looking for a job. Don't do anything to do with alcohol.
Damn right I was a barman for 8 years. Working in a boozer ain't fun.
Did you wait till 8/8 so Americans wouldn’t get confused with your date???
Also enjoy XXXX gold
Mate i don't drink that shit, the only reason its called XXXX is because queenslanders don't know how to spell beer.
If a Kangaroo came hopping thru your drive thru, would you serve him?
WTF is with you guys liking Bundy Rum? It tastes like gasoline.
Shit is fucking disgusting.
When I was in Australia I went to some bar. They were featuring something called a “Bogan Bomb” . It had Bunderburg as the shot and XXXX as the beer 😂.
Most stuffed thing that's happened?
Water leaked through the roof into the circuit breaker during a storm and shut off the entire power during a shift
Got a full days pay and went home early. Win win for me
Nice how about customer wise? I have a mate that works in a liquor store in Melbourne also he's told us some pretty stuffed up stories
Had a few blokes punch on in my drive thru, at my old job at another liqour store, I had to stay back 3 hours because there was a group of people hanging out the front waiting to kick my head in because i wouldn't sell them booze. Few other non exciting shit.
Yeah I don't get how people can get off like that I've had to stay in the back room coz some ass wanted to do the same.. I worked at Kmart!
Jesus. People are fucked mate
Eh when my shop was getting a make over I had to still work 4:45am to midday haha
Oof. That sucks
How much for a cup of ice? Here in the states you can drive-through and buy a bottle of bourbon a bottle of Coke and a cup of ice at the drive-through.
Cup of ice? Nah man, youre buying a whole 3.5kg bag of ice which is $4.00, coke youre looking at about $4.20 and price of bourbon depends on what brand.
What do you consider cold? Have you ever been so cold you wish death would just take you right then and there, but just as you're about to take your last breath the store clerk says you have to get out of their freezer or she'll call the cops and then your therapist says you might be suicidal and gives you a prescription for a therapy squirrel, but then TSA won't let your therapy squirrel get on the plane because it might be carrying the rabies virus?
Yes. I think
what do you sell the most of?
Beer. A lot of fucking beer
How are you able to live with yourself when you actually sell VB to people?
I live with myself knowing that i dont drink the shit,
I'm going to be coming to Australia at the end of this month and I'm going to be traveling the entire country pretty much. I'm from the UK, do you want to meet?
Probs not cobber, have quite a lot on my plate at the moment.
I mean, that's disappointing, but to be called cobber has softened the blow.
Hahaha, have a good one though, Australia is alright, king st in Sydney and Melbourne big no no. Too many fucking cock heads, that's where majority of people get king hit.
Thanks for the warning. Any places where you would recommend?
Also, do people hate the Brits in Australia?
Hmmmm, really depends on what you're after, beaches are nice over here on the east coast, melbourne zoo is great, melbourne aquarium aint too bad either, check out the youyangs, I think the town is called Beveridge head there and check out Ned Kelly's house.
I live in Melbourne, there is a bunch of shit here. Don't go to frankston, Dandenong, footscray, and few others. Absolute shit holes.
And nah we don't hate the brits, we enjoy giving them banter as long as it doesn't get over the top, we call yas Poms still.
Fixed new proof up, didnt want face shown though so wrote time stamp
Can I get a goon bag ?
