I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. People go crazy over free shit.
Take this burger, for instance.
Today, our firm hired the In and Out Truck to come and serve lunch to hungry accountants in need.
(FYI, I have it under good authority that these trucks cost $5000 to rent)
We’re sent an email that the truck will be there from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m.
And where do you think the entire firm is at 12:01???
Standing in line and freaking out.
It’s a burger, people.
There is no Golden Ticket.
These burgers don’t cure Spina Bifida.
People are laughing nervously and chatting about an unfathomable dream about to come true.
A burger they’ve all consumed a hundred times was about to be given to them for free.
Which is a savings of $2.50
Foreclosure be damned!
“Damn, you guys don’t have fries?” chides one woman to a cashier (a woman who’s arteries would most likely shut down for repairs if she were to quench her fry desire)
