Loving free beer is nearly as universal as hating roadwork. This clever Illinois bar comes up with a creative way to motivate the road crew outside to finish the job as fast as possible.
Sometimes it feels like road work could be done a little faster and more efficiently.If the roadwork happens to be right outside your place of business, it definitely seems to last forever. Maybe the crew just needs to want to finish it faster. But what's in it for them?
The management of The Olympic Tavern in Rockford, IL thought that maybe the crew simply needed a bit of motivation.CombatMarshmallow posted a photo of the bar's new sign with the caption, "This might actually work." First there was some confusion. IDOT is not "idiot" misspelled, but stands for Illinois Department of Transportation.
While most people didn't have an optimistic view of the roadwork's completion schedule, they did seem to appreciate the humor.
The staff at The Olympic Tavern seem to be enjoying their moment of fame.
