A couple years ago, I was in NC for my wife's cousin's wedding and at the last minute our plans for boarding our dog fell through. One of her other cousins stepped up and offered to take our dog for the night since our hotel didn't allow pets. He is a good ol' boy and had a great time with the dog, and I wanted to thank him in a way that I knew he would appreciate, so the morning after the wedding I went to the grocery store to get a case of bud light. I had no idea that it was illegal to buy/sell alcohol on Sundays in NC, and here I was at 8:00am trying to get a whole case of beer while everyone else in town is off at church. It was also the *only* thing I was trying to buy...so the cashier looks at the beer, looks at me and says "you can't buy that right now", just takes the beer off the counter and puts it behind her station. Since I had nothing else and was caught sort of off-guard, I mumbled some sort of apology and just walked off to the parking lot.
