7 Eleven’s ‘Bring Your Own Cup’ Slurpee Day Brought Out The Worst In People And We Have The Pics To Prove It

My mom always used to say “I give you and inch and you take a mile.” I’m not much of a runner, so I never really understood what she meant. But, if I were to venture a guess, I’d say that that phrase can be applied to the uncivilized savages who turned 7-Eleven’s “Bring Your Own Cup” slurpee experiment into a straight up looting. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big advocate of sticking it to the man, but if I’m spending my afternoon filling up a kiddie pool with liquid diabetes, please someone take me out back and do what I haven’t had the stones to. For the betterment of society.

I spent a little bit of time pitying these poor saps, then I grew to respect them. Because there is nothing in my life that I’ve committed to as wholeheartedly as these people. Hopefully this type of dedication will land them a job, so they can eventually afford a 99 cent Slurpee.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
