Talking Happy Meal time on the strip

This notice, (see attached picture), is posted at the McDonald's across from Walmart on 76. Some folks are in a tizzy saying that 30 minutes is not long enough to eat, but I believe that there is another reason that this has been posted.

There's the big homeless camp behind Price Chopper that is probably the source of the problem.

People who hold signs at that corner buy one drink, (or rummage through the trash and find a used cup), and think it's OK to just keep coming back when they want to or to go to the bathroom charge their phones....count their change collected from "bumming" or use the bathroom to shoot up or get high.

The problem SHOULD be addressed by the city or county government, however, there is no law or statute in either the Taney county or Branson municipal code which addresses vagrancy and the Branson ordinance regarding panhandling is very weak.

That leaves it up to the individual business owner to deal with the problem as best they can. Posting this sign gives McDonalds a basis for a trespassing charge.

Same sign at the B-West McD's. I'd like to talk longer, but I'm almost out of time to finish my Happy Meal.

30 minutes is PLENTY of time to consume any meal you could order at McDonalds, and the management team knows this, which is why that is the max you can "hang out" there. Good for them. I'd rather the individual business's set their own policy to deal with the many bums roaming the city, vs yet another government "law". You want to jack your jaw more than a half hour with your fishing or hunting buddy at McD's, simply walk out and get into your truck. Well, done, McDonalds...thank you. Even though a half hour of sitting anywhere near one of the vagrants in MORE than I can or will tolerate, you have done the best you can. Again, thank you.

Happiness is having an empty plate when the 30 minute buzzer goes off.

With exception of when the McRibs are in, 30 seconds if far more time than I need anywhere near a Mickey D's!
