We are closed

Today, I went with some friends to get a slice of pizza. This pizza place is more of a stand, so the customers stand outside and order from the window. We were talking, per usual, and debating whether to get individual slices or a pie. The owner was standing right at the screened window, looking at us.

After about a minute, he said, completely deadpan, "We are closed."

"You don't have a couple of extra slices left?" we asked him. He reiterated that they were closed. Then he said that they were just closing up. Something wasn't adding up there.

At any rate, we didn't get pizza from there that night. In our moment of indecision, apparently the owner decided that we had waited one minute too long to place our order.
