I guess I should announce my 2007 resolution before January is over. Yes, it will be fast-food related. No, it is not to give up, or curb my fast-food patronization. I could never do that.
I resolve that this year I will take every survey and/or fill out every sweepstakes entry that comes on my fast food receipts. Why? Because I could be passing up good fortune, or a free small fry every time I throw one of these things in the trash.
One time Burger King had a phone survey on the back of each receipt, which entitled each participant to a free chicken whopper. What resulted was a vivacious cycle of free chicken whoppers for lunch, one day after another. I kept going back, and they kept asking me my opinion! It got out of hand, and I had to stop the madness, by handing over the golden receipt to a co-worker. I don't know how it turned out.
So, why, you may ask would I want to subject myself to the potential for something like this to happen again? It's a fun thing to do. It is something to do. And it is something to talk about.
Sitting on my desk I have 2 surveys to dial up; one for a free backyard burger, and one for perhaps $1000. Oh, the fullness of possibility!
