The hot dog stand umbrella I could understand. It’s as much a sign of hot dogs for sale as the hot dogs themselves. Drivers zipping by this parking lot might miss the decorations on the side of the truck, but not the unmistakable umbrella. You have to wonder about the flag. Is it also an eye-catching marker? Is it meant to distinguish this hot dog vendor as American born? Maybe the owner’s of the truck just want to make everyone know their high level of love of country, and if that boosts sales so be it. The customer was a big guy, very over weight. Hot dogs for lunch, sitting in his car in the parking lot, the radio for company, waiting for the sound of his ring-tone. Probably noticed neither umbrella or flag.
