Why do businesses always have to open at the least possible second?
It's only 20 seconds till opening time and employees are still locking the door behind them when they enter. I've never known a business to open even 2 minutes early. What's the big deal?

Usually, they use that time to get ready, open their cash drawers, sign onto their computers, etc. I don't mind waiting for regular business hours, but what really drives me crazy - is when they don't open on time.

There are other people in the building and they aren't quite ready yet. Or, they aren't being compensated based on profit...so they don't care about the extra sale.
My employees do the same thing, or wait in their car until 2 minutes before they need to be at their desks. I show up and just come in, but I also stay after the business closes too...

The owner doesn't pay the staff until opening time, so the staff don't work before they're getting paid.

On your job do you take customers or answer the phone before or after normal working hours? How is a store any different? The hours are posted on the door and if they are inconvenient for you then go somewhere else.

You've obviously never owned a business.
Everyone needs to be ready at open time. You might be ready, but everyone else might not be. Depending on the particular business, it could royally screw things up if you start letting people in the door before everyone is ready and in place.

Hmmm, I'm never at a business when they first open. Unless you count the bank that's a few blocks from me. It's weird, they ALWAYS open the door to the street first, THEN the one in the back, where the parking lot is. So I go to the front, and I'm first in line, then 4-5 people walk in from the other door.

The employees need to clock in, turn the lights on, etc etc

The staff aren't paid for the extra 2 minutes or 20 seconds so why should they open up early?
