This is a question Abusing freebies

A friend of mine recently attended a 'Champaign Lunch', where he was compelled drink as much fizzy stuff as he could between the first and last courses. In an ideal world we'd ask restaurant staff to tell us stories about fatties stuffing themselves at All You Can Eat places, but we recognise that our members don't all work in the catering trade, so for the rest of you - tell us something about abusing freebies. BTW: Bee puns = you fail.

Tenuous at best
When I bought my BB gun (a replica Steyr AUG - same one as www.b3ta.com/questions/stupiddares/post98031/) the shop gave me a free magazine in addition to the one that came with it. Anyway, that was technically a freebie and it later proved amusing.

I decided I only needed one of the magazines, so listed the free one* on ebay and someone bought it. I got a parcel and wrapped it up and put it my car ready to drive to the post office.

I went to my mate's house first. He said he had stuff to post so he'd post my package as well whilst I buggered off to another shop. He didn't know what was in the package at this point. Whilst I was buggered off, he put the package on the desk, it fell open and the replica magazine fell out.

The woman at the desk pressed a panic button and he was shortly demanded to explain what it was by secruity guards, which of course he couldn't do despite them shouting more and more. Soon the police arrived with my mate in a back room surrounded by the secruity guards. One of them realised that it was only a replica magazine and so his ramblings about not knowing what it is and posting it for a friend were finally believed.

The first I knew about it was when my friend stormed into the shop across the road screaming "You bastard!"

*Might have actually been the other one. So there's a 50% chance this story wasn't actually about an amusing freebie at all.

Good effort
but witty lies and untruths need to be shorter to be funny. I suggest you have a quick read through FrankSpencer and Apeloverage's posts to see how they've done it.

But it is true!
I mean it's not 100% true, but the basic traits are true. I don't think the police turned up in quite the SWAT style I would have you believe, thye probably didn't turn up at all in fact, but he was certainly interrogated by the post office secruity for a good few minutes.

And I've just noticed this QOTW is called "Abusing freebies" and not "Amusing freebies". Oh well.
