I went to the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Wesley Chapel tonight with a shopping list including beer.  In the Valrico store, the beer is behind the soda, but not in this one.  So I asked an employee: "Pardon me, where's the beer?"

"We're across from a church and next to a school."

"Um... I'm sorry, I was asking where the beer is.  You know, like Michelob."

"We're not allowed to sell beer because we're across from a church and next to a school."

"But religious people don't HAVE to buy beer, and the schoolkids CAN'T buy it, and the teachers probably NEED it.  What gives?"

"It's against the law."

"???... Stupidest law ever.  OK, thanks very much."

It's bad enough that SuperTarget and Publix were closed today, but sheesh.  Preventing Wal-Mart from selling me a 12-pack of Michelob Ultra Amber is not only dumb, it's just wrong.  Who the hell do I talk to to get this law changed?!

I'm pissed because I can't get pissed.

(Well, okay, I have liquor, but jeez.)
