In college, there wasn’t much I wouldn’t do for a free meal. Smuggle apples out of the cafeteria? Beg friends to let me use their meal plans when mine ran out? Temporarily join social, service, and religious organizations on days they conveniently hosted a cookout? Check, check, and check. After college, my income grew, but my love of free food stayed the same. As soon as I realized that by keeping my grocery bill down, I would have more money to blow on weekend brunch and shopping, I knew that I would continue to seek out free food for many years to come.
Thankfully, next Monday, Krispy Kreme will have you covered for the small, small price of humiliating yourself in public. Done. By showing up and speaking like a pirate, you’ll get a free donut. If that’s not enough motivation for you, if you show up in full pirate attire (a minimum of three items), you’ll receive a free original dozen.
Of course, this is a Monday morning, so you’ll have to decide how much you want to show up to work in a peg leg, but if that’s worth it to you, go for it. You’ll also be stuck with the decision of a lifetime – should you squirrel the donuts away for a week’s worth of breakfast or be the office hero and leave them in the break room for everyone to enjoy? That’s a personal dilemma you’ll have to struggle with until September 19th, but until then, go out and buy yourself an eyepatch in the name of free breakfast. .
