I, myself, am often amused by life’s little quirks.
Earlier this evening, Carlos Miller of Photography is Not a Crime posted a picture to his Facebook wall regarding the sale of beer.
Miller, staying in Hazelwood, Missouri to cover ongoing protests in the area, ventured over to the 7-11 next to his hotel.
While in the store, he took a picture of a sign reading:
DUE TO CHANGE IN HAZELWOOD LAW WE ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED TO SELL 1 SINGLE BEER, YOU MUST PURCHASE AT A MINIMUM 2. Thank you and sorry for any inconvenience.
Some convenience store.
But it’s not their fault. If you want to blame someone, blame the local government.
If you just want one beer to take the edge off, and only have enough for one, you’re out of luck.
While searching online for the town’s ordinance, I stumbled upon a St. Louis ordinance that, among other things, regulates the sell of alcohol.
It’s pretty lengthy, so I’ll just hit a few highlights.
