Finding a way to get McDonald’s for free – especially while you work a hard, physical job outside – sounds like a Godsend for a lot of people. Picking up a drink for a single dollar and being able to feed your entire crew immediately would make you the most popular person at that job site by a country mile.
How long do you think it took for these guys to get sick of the Golden Arches? McDonald’s makes good fries and an okay burger, but even if the food is free we imagine that you can get a little tired of it after a week or two. Maybe grab a salad once in a while to refresh the palate.
No Using the Blood
Yup, this one makes sense. The arresting officers had lots of other options for taking evidence of drunk driving other than a blood test, and it was up to them to realize that they should have been covering their tracks. We’re surprised that a blood test is the first thing that the police would go to, but maybe it made more sense in the moment, or it didn’t get taken until the driver had been moved to a station or something like that.
On the other hand, it seems like this evidence is more of a catch-22 than first expected, since pointing out he was too drunk to consent would also prove he was drunk driving. Oh no – it doesn’t make sense!
It’s a Magical World for Somebody
Once again, not exactly a loophole, but it still let a bunch of kids run ahead of the long lines that Disney World is famous for. We assume these kids were pleasantly walking to their appointed space so that they could go on their favorite rides, and not taking advantage of this anywhere and everywhere they could while running and shouting and making fools of themselves.
Oh, and just in case you’ve already started planning a trip to Disney World because of this story, there’s basically a zero percent chance this is still an option for guests. If Disney hasn’t supplied their maintenance guys with something on their phone to get past the lines, then we’d be really shocked.
More Email Addresses to Use
A quick caveat while trying to take advantage of this strange loophole: not all email servers will support it. Some of the big ones, like Gmail and a couple of other major providers do it, but be sure to test this trick first before you start trying to sign up for stuff. But, once you know that it works, you can make a new Facebook account sign up for services, or trick websites into thinking you’re a new customer in order to get a deal on the stuff sitting in your shopping cart.
In the same way, Gmail doesn’t “see” periods that are before the @ symbol, so email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org are seen as the same email address. Just a way to make using the internet a little easier for you.
Here, Fill up This Bag
While it seems like dipping sauces are cheap enough to not show up on the receipt, they will often cost money. It might seem like too much trouble just to save a quarter or two here or there, but every little bit can add up to a lot.
The people working at the drive-thru know that those dipping sauces probably aren’t worth their trouble, and they’ll be kind enough to supply you with one or two if you ask nicely. You could also offer to pay with your credit card for the twenty-five cent purchase, which we hear might as well be like tossing a sack of angry wasps through the window for how much trouble it can cause.
