This sweet note was left by the owners of a bar who are rewarding patrons with a free BURGER if they make the responsible decision not to drink and drive.
Customer Austin Martin, 33, returned to his truck the morning after boozing with a pal to find the letter from the owners of The Union Bar & Grill on his windscreen.
It reads: “I’m not sure if you consumed alcohol at our restaurant or not, but we want to thank you for not drinking and driving.
“Bring this letter to the bar and we will give you a hamburger and French fries. Life is valuable, have a great day.”
Austin, an art graduate, had enjoyed dinner and drinks with an old friend at the bar and restaurant in Gering, Nebraska, USA, on March 18.
Instead of getting behind the wheel and risking the drive home while over the limit, he called his wife Janelle, 33, who came to pick him up.
When the registered nurse dropped her husband back to the Union the following morning, they found the note from owners Carla and Scott Swanson.
Carla, 54 and Scott, 53, said they don’t leave notes for every car, but enjoy making the gesture randomly to encourage their patrons not to drive while drunk.
Carla said: “We’ve been doing it for a number of years. We don’t do it for every car, but we try to do it randomly. It’s important to us and to the community.
“We have kids on the road and discouraging drunk driving keeps everyone safe.
“We’re glad to be an example to other business owners, it would be great if more people decided to do it.”
Janelle added: “We don’t have a taxi service or Uber in our little town so I guess it can be tempting for people.
“They usually rely on their family and friends to pick them up.
“It’s such a great gesture, and I think it would totally make people think twice about drunk driving.”
