I enjoy coming across awkward signs that exist because one bozo customer tried to pull a fast one. Take this sign near the drive-thru window at Jack-in-the-Box that was plastered next to the “No Smoking” and “Your Comments Welcome” signs:
Walk up guests will not be served at the drive-thru. This includes guests on coasting devices and non-motorized vehicles that have been altered
What exactly is a “coasting device”? I assume it means a skateboard but that’s more a kick, coast and attempt a “flip the board over” stunt that fails 99% of the time device. Have you ever seen a punk on a skateboard actually land a single trick? I haven’t.
And when is the last time you’ve pulled up to a drive-thru in a non-motorized vehicle that’s been altered? Is this the Fred Flintstone mobile? Or a Razor scooter with a jet engine fastened to the rear? No clue.
I’d love to know what prompted Jack-in-the-Box to print such a sign. I picture some mad scientist floating down to the window via personal jet pack and the poor employee having to decide if that qualifies as a vehicle. So the lawyers got together and came up with a watered down sign that means diddly-squat to the rest of us.
I wish they would include pictures of devices they don’t allow. You know, in case I finally develop that hovercraft I’ve been building in my mind.
