There are lots of places such as schools around the world that have some pretty strict rules about your appearance and the clothing you wear, but there aren’t a lot of places like this that will be so uptight about it that they’ll look at the tuck amount of shirts while the students are sitting down for lunch, like this place did.
One enterprising student realized that he or she could use a big sweater to hide whether or not a shirt was tucked in, and it caught on like wildfire among the student population. On the other hand, if you wanted to take advantage of this, you had to wear a sweater all the time. Yeah, the school year is over the winter, but there are plenty of months when it can be pretty darn warm, especially inside.
Saving at the Golden Arches
Pricing for some stores can be a bit strange. Why would a fast food restaurant like McDonald's – one that is, we must assume, built around earning money – making twelve nuggets and a fry less than a ten-nugget meal? There are a lot of different ways to explain this, such as the smaller nugget option being a loss leader.
If you take a close look at the different prices at your local Mikey D’s, you might find that you can save on the same amount of food or get more food for the same amount of money. Every store is going to have prices a little different, so you’ll have your work cut out for you if you travel, but it can be done!
Air Hockey for Everyone!
Did the people who ran this little arcade know about this loophole? Almost certainly. Did they care? We can confirm that they did not. As the story says, the people who worked there didn’t seem to mind, and it’s not like using the air hockey table was costing the place all that much.
Most of the funds the kids had went to the snack bar anyway (which is where most places like arcades and movie theaters make the majority of their money), so they didn’t mind that the youngin’s were getting a few extra games out of the tables. The story goes on to say that the place would have fresh watermelon for free during the summer, so it sounds like the place was pretty dang nice all around.
Making the Most of a Bad Situation
Not everybody is made out to do well at math. Once they start using letters, things start to get complicated in a hurry, and that’s not even close to the worst that you can get if you continue on with calculus into college and beyond. Pre-calculus is where people who aren’t as numerically minded start to wonder about other paths in life, and this was true for this person, too.
Thankfully, the school’s very handy Accounting I course had just enough math in it to be counted in that study, so this person got to learn about stocks and how to write a check while also having the right kind of courses on his or her transcript to get into the proper college.
We’re Sure This is Helpful Somehow
Excellent! Free buns! This is great news, because who doesn’t love a pair of free buns? People who have gluten allergies, we guess, but it’s not like they’re going to fall into getting a pair of free buns.
You have to deal with the little electronic food kiosks and go through all the steps outlined here in order to get a free pair of buns, and we’re going to guess that you also have to get other food as well to hide the fact that you just scored some free bread from a fast food restaurant. Then you can do something like eat the free bread, or feed it to some hungry birds, or throw it like a Frisbee that will naturally decompose. The options are almost endless!
