Dear [Insert Fast Food Venue Here],

I was considering your $5 foot-long deal today. I planned on grabbing a window seat so that I could people watch as I eat. I like to gaze out of windows in general, and with those gorgeous new 10′ panes, your venue seemed like the perfect lunch.

But you had to go and paste huge posters on your windows at seated eye-level. So that 75% of the window seats essentially become non-window seats. Why go through the trouble of designing such a modern establishment with huge windows if you’re just going to render them useless?

I understand you want to lure hungry people in with your marketing deals. That’s cool. But you can place the posters at 6′ and above, and everyone wins. No?
