I wasn’t actually a part of this one, since it happened before we even opened. At about 5:30 am, a guy ran out of off booze and decided it was a good idea to drive, completely wasted, to the store expecting us to be open. He came up the drive-thru and ran his car into the steel/cement pole. Smashed up his car and flattened his tire, then after realizing we weren’t open continued down the road smashing into more things (signs, other cars, etc.) and completely totaling his car.
Shockingly when the police caught him, he was completely honest about what happened.
On a side note, I am really glad that pole is there to protect the building. I have seen people loose side mirrors and smash their cars a few times, but my favorite was the guy who hit the pole, ripping off his front bumper and said “is that pole ok?” I replied, “that pole is there for a reason, your car isn’t ok though”. Without even getting out of the car, the guy in the back seat says “can we get a 30 pack of Busch Light?”
I got them their beer, they put the bumper in the trunk, the driver and passenger switched places and down the road they went.
DON’T DRIVE DRUNK!
