The Never Ending Ending

It’s 9:05, damn it. The band is still playing. See, here’s the deal. We have an early show, and we have a late show. The early show is all ages, the late show 21 and up.

All underage kids need to be gone by exactly 9pm sharp.

Am I being a stickler wanting the bands to be done by 9, actually, five minutes before 9?

No. I’m doing my job.

Cop comes in at 9:15, underage kids still in the bar, I could lose my job, and that’s that.

The band is playing, it’s now 9:08. I’m furiously texting the sound guy. What the hell? They need to be done!!! Problem is five till 9, they said, this will be our last song, and their last song is going on forever.

Ok, finally, sounds like they’re doing the last notes.

Da, da, da, da, da…da.

Ok, good, wait…

Da, da, da, da, da…da.

Ok, that’s it, let’s turn on…

Da, da, da, da, da…da.

This has got to be the last one…

Da, da, da, da, da…da.

Jesus Christ, ok, NOW!!!

Da, da, da, da, da…da.

You’ve got to be kidding, I want to…

Da, da, da, da, da…da.

My face is burning red, I want to scream…

Da, da, da, da, da…da.

I run over to the door guy, tell him, right when they’re done, turn on…

Da, da, da, da, da…da.

AHHHHHHHHHH.

It’s starts slowing down. Please Lord, let this be the last one.

Da, da, da, da, da…da.

I close my eyes, say a silent prayer, Lord. I need this song to end RIGHT…

Da, da, da, da, da…da.

AHHHHHHHHHH.

At 9:20, the lead singer comes up to the bar, I say, you know, you guys were good, but you should have been done at 9. I need all underage people out of here by 9 sharp.

He says, yeah, sorry about that. I didn’t think that last song would take that long. I say, Yeah.

IT WAS THE NEVER ENDING ENDING!!!!

It was the drummer’s fault, he says. He kept on going.
