Drunk and drive is a practice that everyone can agree is very bad. When one’s judgment is impaired by alcohol, there’s no telling what might happen. Countless people have been killed in accidents involving drunk drivers, and it’s time that more people were aware of the disastrous consequences.
Paula Grzelak-Schultz was left speechless and over-the-moon by a unique but gratifying gesture showed to her at a restaurant she visited. The lady, after paying a visit to the restaurant, left her car parked outside it instead of driving it home at night.
The next day, when she came back to the spot to get her car, a surprise was in store for her. In stark contrast with cases when one’s car gets towed or damaged for unauthorized parking, Grzelak-Schultz was not only lauded but was also gifted a free coupon of chicken wings for doing that.
The management of the restaurant attached a ‘thank you note’ on the car’s windshield and the lady was thoroughly delighted for the kind gesture.
Here’s what the note read:
“Dear Original Joe’s Sherwood Park Guest,
Just wanted to thank you for leaving your car parked overnight. I’m not sure if you had consumed alcohol at our restaurant or not, but we wanted to thank you for not drinking and driving. Enclosed is voucher good for 1lb of our delicious chicken wings. Please accept this as a thank you for being responsible. Life is valuable, have a great weekend.”
She later took to Facebook and posted the note she received from the restaurant. And, as it happens with most positive things, her post soon went viral earning more than 21,000 likes and 8000 shares. Now, they’re calling for other establishments to try the same method to encourage their patrons to not drink and drive!
