A Woman Leaves Her Car Overnight At A Restaurant After Drinking A Few Drinks. She Wakes Up To Find A Note On The Windshield.
According to CTV News, Grzelak-Schultz had a few drinks at a bar the night before. Instead of taking a chance and driving home, she chooses to find another way to get home safely, leaving her car parked in the parking lot.
When Grzelak-Schultz opened the note the next day when she got the car, instead of a parking ticket, she found a gift certificate and a nice letter written by the bar manager.
The message was titled “Guest Original Joe’s Sherwood Park” and was from original Joe’s managing partner Jay McClain. he wrote:
“I just wanted to thank you for leaving the car parked overnight.
“I don’t know if you drank alcohol in our restaurant or not, but we wanted to thank you for not drinking and driving.”
Attached to the receipt was a coupon for one pound of homemade chicken wings.
“Please take this as a thank you for being in charge. Life is precious, have a great weekend.”
Grzelak-Schultz told the publication that she was sure the message was either a ticket or a complaint about her car being parked overnight in the lot. I was pleased and surprised that the restaurant manager went out of his way to accept his verdict.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, drunk drivers were responsible for more than 10,000 deaths in the United States in 2016 alone. Although you can avoid an accident by driving drunk, you can end up in jail if you are arrested and field sobriety test. Instead of becoming a statistician, always play it safe – never drink and drive. If you are going to drink, always plan ahead how you will get home.
Some examples are:
organize a taxi or car service,
Arrange for a sober family member or friend to pick you up,
select a specific driver from a group of friends,
Mark your public transport route in advance to get home.
Also, if you see someone else trying to get behind the wheel after drinking, offer them a ride (if you’re sober) or try to find a replacement. Ask others for help if needed! If you see a drunk driver on the road or driving erratically, call the local police.
