Surprise Free Lunch

What would you do if you ordered takeout food and found $5,000 in the box instead of your chicken wings? A woman in San Jose (CA?) got that exact surprise lunch and she called the restaurant trying to return the money. After waiting a day for a reply that did not come she called a media outlet that was able to get the restaurant's manager to arrange for return of the cash. So, what did she get for her honesty and integrity  - free pizza for a year from the restaurant! Luckily, her own boss gave her a week of paid vacation. (Source.)

Had it been me in that situation, I would have told the manager at Dominoes to go screw himself had he given me a reward of a year's free pizza. First of all, their pizza is terrible, secondly she ordered wings so why not a year of free wings but more importantly why did he not give her at least the traditional 10 to 15% of the returned cash as her reward. That would have been the right thing to do and then offer her the pizza and wings as an additional bonus. 

Should it happen to me, I would have to think long and hard about returning 5K. I have been pretty honest in that regard throughout my adult life and while it would be difficut to decide to keep it, it would go a long way toward the deposit on a replacement car for my destroyed Toyota and I would be sorely tempted to keep it. Bottom line, probably would not keep it and then would wind up cursing out the manager when he offered free pizza. Ammo though might be another thing all together

Have You Ever Enjoyed A Vodka On The Rocks In A Gun Store?

I did that yesterday at the Gander Mountain store in Palm Gardens, FL. I sure did not go thrre expecting to find a bar but while there decided to stop in their restaurant to grab a diet soda because I wsd parched. When I looked inside I was astonished to see there was a full service bar and a mighty nice looking one at that.


Apparently my timing was perfect, for a change, because they had just opened. I ordered a vodka on two rocks with a club soda on the side. Enjoyed it immensely while chatting with Beth, the very nice barmaid. She told me the place is usually a bit slow on week nights but packed on Friday and Saturdays. A surprising find inside a gun store but there because the or an owner of Gander Mountain lives clise by a d that us what the owner wanted. Gander Mountain has moved up a few notches in my estimation.

All the best,
