Rules - prescribed guides for
conduct or action
(written before) Common meaning (directions for how you are to behave)
Once upon a time there was a pizza place nearby a high school.
Since the students had the privilege of leaving the school's campus for lunch; there were students (alot
of them) and with that the awesome responsibility to keep order in the establishment. When the LAND OF ZA first
opened there were pinball machines, computer games, lounging chairs with moveable tables and cigarette
smoking. The volume of sales was very low, but the amount of students coming in during lunch was great (not
to eat but to play games and meet up with their friends). These
activities created a competition for seats. Turmoil ensued. Expenses outweighed the income, etc. Something
had to change....
out the door went the games, comfortable chairs,
moveable tables and cigarette smoking.....
In 1990 at the beginning of the school year this set of rules called
ZA laws were posted ....
ZA LAWS ( paraphrasing the
Beverly Hillbillies theme song and adding a touch of humor)
1 THOSE OF YOU who buy and eat here get a place for their seat here.
BUTT THAT IS!
2 THOSE OF YOU who borrow money do that at the
bank for if you do it here you will surely walk the
OUT THAT IS!
3 THOU SHALT NOT in ZA do beg or a foot you will meet at the end of my leg
KICKED OUT THAT IS!
4 THOU SHALT NOT use language profane or respect from the WUZ you will not attain.
SWEAR THAT IS !
THOU SHALT NOT put feet or foot an a chair or table for a slob
will be your label.
BUM THAT IS!
THOU SHALT NOT put butt on table or lap or from ZA you'll
get some crap.
SCOLDED THAT IS!
THOU SHALT NOT bother others while they are eating
or time with us will be fleeting.
8 THOU SHALT NOT share food for a chair because seats in here will become too rare.
