Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

What could be better than getting free stuff?

    I won a free window tint job for being the first guy to show up without tint to a car show. Not the cheapo shit either; 27% (lowest legal in CO) charcoal tint

    I also won some really nice Avalanche tickets ($210 ea) for having the worst story about getting cheated on

    I got a neon PS2 sign from Gamestop for just walking in during renovations and saying "can I have that?". They said yes and now I have a sign that I can't put anywhere.

    Also I don't think I've won anything since high school. Back then I won a ton of stuff including:
    Third Place in a male beauty contest (with 12 contestants. I already saw that joke coming)
    Prom King
    Most Likely To Succeed
    4 year running Pie Eating Champ
    Lord of the Dodgeball
    Employee of the month


    Oh way, I won best dressed at work recently. Because I wear WACKY ties.
    Is it just me or do these all sound like concepts to terrible comedies?

    Oh! One time I found $20 in my pocket!

    I mean, technically it wasn't free, but I forgot I had it, so I certainly felt like a winner!

    I discovered $600 in my paypal account that I had 100% forgotten about.

    I'm not really sure how that happened.

    I bought a pop from a vending machine last week

    got two pops

    I was at a food place two weeks ago and these people ordered one of those big awesome pretzels, and the place had to cook it hot and fresh because they don't keep em stocked

    Turns out they didn't want salt and I was like "I'll take it!" and they gave it to me.

    Was at an ice cream shop THREE weeks ago and the people in front of me left, leaving two complete double-dip vanilla waffle cones in the hands of the attendant. I said "I'll take em!" and they gave them to me.

    For those of you who haven't worked in the food biz before, employees will usually be happy to hand over made things that they are just going to throw away, if you ask them nicely.

    One time in high school I bought a pop from a vending machine and the bottles just kept on coming. I ended up taking 6 to bring back to my friends but they kept coming so I just started giving them to people who were around the vending machine.

    Eventually some guy came up and without paying attention to what was happening put his money in the vending machine and hit the button, causing the flow of free pops to stop.

    People got pretty mad at him.

    Man I would've killed that guy

    When we were little, my brothers and I found a vending machine where something in the bottom had busted and all the quarters were just laying on the ground below it.

    We stole so much money that day

    I got a free satchel from working a temp job for the US Census.

    After my job finished I asked if there was anything else I needed to return and they told me there wasn't so unless they suddenly call me up and ask for it back I'm keeping it.

    No idea what I'll even use it for but hey, free stuff!

    I have exactly one awesome free shit story, and the item is not really that cool.

    So one day I was taking the bus in to town, and it was nice and sunny. Now, the bus stop is about a 10 minute walk from my house, so once I was there it wasn't like I could just run back inside and get things I needed.

    Anyways, I got to the bus stop and noticed that awww, someone left an umbrella there. Wonder why they had an umbrella, it's like 72 and awesome out.

    About 30 seconds later, and for about 5 minutes until the bus came, it suddenly starts pouring ridiculous amounts of rain, before hailing.

    I still have that found umbrella, it is my favoritest umbrella ever.

    Oh man, years ago, when it was still made and stocked here, Dr Pepper ran an "Under the cap" promotion that 1 out of every 2 bottles won you another free bottle.

    I got six in a row.

    I once won a free blockbuster rental from a Sprite bottle cap. I never used it, but it was the principle of the thing. Until that day, I believed I would never be a winner.

    Microwave
    Scrabble Game
    Xbox
    Terminator t-shirt
    3 month unlimited movie pass
    24" LCD Monitor (this was was an awesome surprise and I still don't know which contest I won it from)
