The Break Inn could be a lovely name for a B&B.

Thanks, Leah!

For some crazy reason, when I saw this sign, I got "There's a break-inn on the rise" going through my head (to the tune of that silly Creedence Clearwater Revival song, of course). Clearly I need to consume less sugar during the work day.

So funny that you said that because as soon as I posed the title, I thought, "Maybe I should have gone with a Credence reference intstead.

Let's give humanity the benefit of the doubt: perhaps the body shop owner also owns a car maintenance-themed hotel that is doing well these days.

This is so bad, and no CCR reference can make it any better. Sorry.

There's a bathroom on the right.

What if "Break" was spelled "Brake"?

That would be even worse...
