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.

You can't park that there, sir.
Working as a removal man isn't all moving house.
A lot of my time is spent moving important people in the council from one floor to another, scraping a desk 3" across a room (they can't do it themselves for health and safety, so they pay £hundreds for us to do it), and generally performing full office moves.

The other day, we enter the 6th or 7th floor of a major council office to find it stacked floor to bastard ceiling full of boxes.
Nothing new there, but what was new were the stickers saying "Disposal" on the side of them.

A few probing questions later, we find out that this floor was moving around the building, but all the disposal was to be taken, by us, to the tip.

Obviously, we start opening the doomed boxes to find...
Child Road safety gear.
Lolly-pop lady gear.
Council Road safey and Parking Officials gear.

Myself and the 4 blokes with me on the day are now all proud owners of:
Jackets with "So-and-so City Council Traffic Warden" Emblazed down the front.
Luminescent Jackets, with same insignia.
Kids toys.
Highway codes, more than you can shake a stick at... each.
Parking offenses ticket Books.
The law book for Traffic Wardens.
Lolly-pop Ladies Lolly-pops.
Etc, etc.

Of course, when we got back to the yard, we were all dressed as Traffic wardens and plastered the Bosses, our co-workers, and the Staff Fleet, in parking tickets.
Good haul!

You got

Think of the money making potential. Just wander around the nearest car park, pretend to write a ticket just as the driver approaches then say something like.....
"Well I wouldn't normally do this but if you prefer to pay me directly,....."

In fact I'll buy the lot of you for 30p

I'd have been straight out that night
trying to do a "I'll destroy the ticket for cash" scam for every ticket in the book.
