You’ll Kill Us All!

Everyone knows that caffeine addicts crave human flesh once the sun goes down. That door is the only thing standing between those employees and being ground up with tomorrow’s house blend.

    This is what happens when you work next door to a vampire haven.

    With all the gaffes and negative comments chwazymoto has done and gotten from being an ignorant vegetarian, you’d think that there wouldn’t be any more lame captions on these things. That’s already a compromise from getting someone else to run this subsite, which I sadly happen to like a lot.

    Twilight fans are lurking…

    How I posted twice so far apart, I couldn’t tell you.

    This is actually a common rule at restaurants, especially those open late. I guess they’re afraid that someone will try to rob you of the trash you are bringing out the back door.

    we have a similar sign on the door of the dissection room at the medical faculty. Now that’s scary… do the corpses come to life at night?

  7. Ryan says:

    Chloe Jasmine is right, I’ve worked in a few restaurants and this sign is pretty common on the back door. Restaurants are frequently robbed at night after closing when some poor busboy takes out the trash.

    When I worked at a fast-food place, there was a sign on the inside of the back door like tise one. We ignored it as a matter of course because there’s no other way to take the trash out to the dumpster. Useless sign.

  9. Sarah says:

    A lot of restauraunts have this rule to prevent employees from being jumped while taking the trash out after dark. This is a common ploy robbers use to get into a restauraunt without being seen by security cams. A kid got shot taking the trash out this past summer in my home town, so I would advocate all restaurants take up this policy.

    Note the convenient indicator light located just below the sign so that you can see whether it is after dusk or not without having to open the door.

  11. Jen says:

    Hapqy, that’s actually the fisheye lens employees can use during the day to see who is at the backdoor. So when a large delivery comes they can see and open the door for the right people.

    Maybe this should have been titled “Let the Right One In” due to the fact it does sound a little vampirish, but is indeed used for store safety.

  12. Kev says:

    I work at SBux (kill me, BTW), and large deliveries often come at night, usually during the weekend, through the front doors, while the cafe is full of loitering tweeners.

    Deliveries during the day? Makes too much sense. SBux won’t do it.

  13. lisa says:

    I work at SBUX and we get ALL our deliveries during the day. But I guess some folks assume if they’ve met one person, they know everyone in the world.

    Arg, more rules for the Mogwai

    I asked someone at the local dairy queen about this sign once. For them, that door opens right into the drive through. After dusk it’d be too hard for the drivers to see anyone coming out of the door and it’s possible that employees could get run over. That, and the robbing thing.

    Are they playing to much minecraft or what? =P

  17. Black Ice says:

    A sign on a door on the planet Hades…

  18. Jerry says:

    emm, Glory Hole on the bottom of the door? Nice..

    They mostly come out at night….. mostly.
