    going in there and pushes the racks around and knocking stuff over is good for stress relief, plus it's funnier than hell cause they get mad, but like offering help, nobody will say anything.

    True, true.

    cryptic - I hate those stalls, too.

    I bet if you just brought it to their attention at the drive-in that they would move it. It a simple but polite way to help others understand. We don't have tioo be hard ass wheelers all the time.

    It's a learning moment.

    Our local BJs has a well designed h/c parking setup, next to the building that just morphs into a walkway (rollway?) to the entrance. Of course, where do they store the carts? Yup, so you have to go out to the lot to go around the carts. Not that big deal, but totally negates the design on the parking.

    yes, but seems it would be wiser to bring it up to corporate so maybe the whole organization would take notice
    and I was very polite in my comments

    matter of fact, i heard from their customer support main office, also got a email this morning from the actual store manager, so i sent them both the picture and asked them to remember us
    so it worked out great

    You handled it well brucec and it seems like the outcome will be favorable for everyone involved.

    My wheeler flash mob suggestion was a little premature.

    My local Sonic has the same types of issues (trash cans and table placement). Not to mention the location of the poles from the roofing. At least there are usable tables at the one in the picture. Only the solid mount seating tables at ours.

    i'm sure it was a oversight, hate to think if the weheelchair had to go to the restroom
    I had the same problem at greenfield village a few yars ago and just moved the trashcan over to much and fell of the crub and tip over.
    Me and my son went to find a table and ate. I few minutes later someone came over and as me why I did it told them why.
    He said ohh and never thought about it and they moved it outa the way after.
    If he was gona give me any grief I would have asked for a manger or I would have gone up as far as I could...or even call the cops....I don't give a dam after 30 years I just don't put up with that shit no more.

    glad to say I stopped by again after work,
    and the table is moved and there is a clear path up to the store
    I fell like I accomplished something good, made my day
