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.

My missus used to live in London, and had a corner shop nearby.

The front door could have done with a lick of paint, and the top shelf mags indicated more about the mores and peccadilloes of the shop owner than perhaps he would have conceded. They were surly, never smiled, and sold overpriced milk. A typical corner shop in short.

She decided to have a couple of papers delivered.

The next Sunday morning, there was a 'plop' (stop sniggering at the back) through the letterbox, and, there, on her floor were the News of the Screws and the Observer. Covering most bases you might say.
A month passed....no bill.
Two months passed... no bill.

She went in once after six months and paid him £25 towards what she felt she owed..but he had no record of her... and, regular as clockwork, the papers kept coming..but she never saw another bill.

Eventually they stopped delivering..FIVE YEARS later. She'd gone off the Observer by then.
