The surprising 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.”
Rather than punish patrons like Paula for leaving their vehicles, Jay McLean, the managing partner of ‘Original Joes’, has decided to reward them for their responsible behavior. Drunk driving is the cause of many deaths and injuries every year, and this restaurant is doing their part to help reduce the problem. Every establishment that serves alcohol should see this and consider doing something similar, or at the very least, not punishing people who leave their cars overnight.
