It’s common knowledge that drunk driving is a stupid, life-threatening activity that will most likely land you in jail. But avoiding drunk driving? While admirable, rarely does a person receive a prize for fulfilling one of the most basic responsibilities as a human being.
That said, people are friendlier up north, and one Canadian restaurant manager recently rewarded a drunk customer after she decided to leave her car behind following a night of heavy drinking. Not only did the manager stick a friendly note on the woman’s windshield—praising the customer’s stellar decision-making skills—he also included a coupon for a pound of free and “delicious” chicken wings as an added token of his gratitude.
“Please accept this as a thank you for being responsible,” the note reads. “Life is valuable, have a great weekend.”
According to Uproxx, the friendly warning against drunk driving went down at Original Joe's in Sherwood Park, proving that Canada really is one of the nicest places in the world. The woman, for her part, is taking the message lightly.
“When I found the letter on my windshield, I thought I was getting in trouble for leaving my car in front of the entryway to the pub,” Paula Grzelak-Schultz wrote on Facebook. “Definitely going back. Not just because of the voucher, but because of how well this guy treats his patrons.”
Jay McLean, the managing partner who left the vouchers, wrote in the note that he didn't know if Paula had drank at his establishment, but thought that it was great that she had decided not drive home under the influence regardless
Free chicken wings, a night full of drinking, and a ride home? This might be the most effective anti-drunk driving PSA we’ve seen yet.
