ZAZ: Is it OK to molest a traffic cone if I return it to the same place after I finish?
MythDragon: I can understand wanting to beat people for molesting traffic cones. I used to do a lot of drive-thru work (installing the speaker boxes, cutting sensor loops into the concrete, installing timers). And I'd need to close the lane to do some work. Usualy it was enough to put up 5 tall traffic cones across the entrance to the lane. But there was always that one person who thought that the cones were the only thing standing between them and a fresh cow-burger (*walk* inside? What madness is this?).Once I had cones up across the lane (a closed lane so you can't just drive in at any old point). The speaker box was on the ground (had yet to be installed) and I had the concrete saw going as I was cutting into the concrete to lay the sensor wire. Then I hear this noise behind me. I turn off the (rather loud) saw, and I hear a woman laying on the horn. I turn around and there is a car 4 inches from me. I look over to see my mangled cones and then just stare at the woman who is still blowing the Goddamn horn. I yell "WHAT? WHAT THE fark IS IT THAT YOU WANT?" She yells back, "I am trying to order! Get out of the damn way!". I move my saw off the pathway, step onto the curb and she drives up to where the menu is...then looks confused. I ask "Yeah? Now what?" She says (pointing at the speaker box on the ground with disconnected wires poking out the bottom) "Is that think working?" 'Uh...no' "Um...how am I supposed to order?" 'Yeah...about that. Did you see the cones across the entrence?' "yes." 'Then why did you drive over them?' "I thought someone put them there as a joke" 'Uh-huh. Now upon further analysis, such as seeing me cutting the concrete up and seeing this speaker box on the ground, have you arrived at any new conclusions?' "The drive thru isn't working?" 'Yes! Good job! You can figure shiat out!' "You don't need to be mean about it" 'Well you didn't need to mangle my cones, so I guess that makes us even.'Another time I had cones up, and I was inside doing the final ...
