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?" '' " 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 touches and had a headset on. All of a sudden *bing!* Bing? What the fark, bing? I go outside and this huge woman in a little car is yelling at the speaker. One of my cones is all jammed up in her wheel well. "Hey! Didn't you see the farking cones??" 'What cones?' I reach into the well and pull my jacked-up cone out and shake it at her. "This farking cone right here!". 'No, I didn't see the cones.' "How the holy hell could you not? They are almost 3 feet tall. And bright orange. With reflective stripes....and there are 5 of them!" 'Well...I didn't see them.' "Well maybe if you weren't in such a hurry to funnel fast food into your fat face you might have". She gives me a shocked look and drives off.

I've also tried using the cardboard board box the speaker box came in. It was a display screen box, so it was pretty big. Laid across the entrance it was about 6 feet long, 2.5 feet tall and 2.5 feet wide. So I watched as a guy gets out of his car, moves the box and drives on through. So I grab a thick-tip sharpie and write "Drive Thru Closed" in big block letters. The very next car drives up. Stops. Reads the sign. And then farking proceeds to drive over the box, comes up to me where I still have the speaker box on the ground and says "Do I just order with you?" I just look at him for a second and then go inside to take a break without a word.

The article used the term "viral".

I stopped reading right there.
