Who hasn't realized, after impulsively downing that second (or third) alcoholic drink, that maybe you're really not in the best shape to get behind the wheel. Well, that's what happened to Paula Grezlak-Shultz at an Original Joe's restaurant in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada. So instead of putting her life and the lives of others in danger, Grezlak-Shultz called an Uber instead.
Her car stayed in the Original Joe's parking lot.The next day she went to pick it up, worried she was going to get into trouble for leaving it there all night. And sure enough, there was a note on the windshield.
But instead of a reprimand, she found something else. The note diplomatically touched upon the drinks she'd had by saying this: "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."
As a thank-you, the manager gave her a voucher for one-pound's worth of the restaurant's chicken wings. Then he signed off by saying, "Life is valuable, have a great weekend."
Grezlak-Shultz said she's definitely coming back--not because of the voucher, but by the way this Original Joe's treats its patrons.
Read the entire note--it's very classy. And props to Paula Grezlak-Shultz for knowing how much is too much.
