Pine Buff, Arkansas
At first blush, this sign may make its point known, but on second thought, a bunch of questions are being begged here, to wit:
The first question: The violator’s violation is what?
- Eschewing good taste?
- Skirting local morals?
- Spit on the sidewalk?
- The pure food and drug act?
- The thoughts you harbored about your hot seventh-grade biology teacher?
We might presume that parking here without buying a hamburger or some other fast-food item qualifies one for a violation. But we are not sure.
2. “VIOLATORS WILL BE TOWED”
Will the violator be hog-tied or bound in handcuffs and leg irons? Reason being, most people will object to being towed. Being hoisted on the hook of a wrecker in public could be a career ender in some professions. Also, to where are the violators being towed? Wabbaseka AR, Pocatello ID, or perhaps to an undocumented dungeon?
3. “AT OWNERS EXPENSE”
Finally the milk of human kindness bobs to the top. The franchise owner is agreeing to the towing expense. Thanks for this relief.
4. Leaving an empty water bottle at the base of the sign apparently does not make one a violator — or, could it be that the violation assistant manager was “on-break” ???
