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.

Thanks Colonel.
A fair few years ago I was working at popular fried poultry shop(the shame.) I was offered the chance to work in Bristol for about 4 weeks helping them open a new store, I'd just handed in my notice so was glad of the chance to get out of my store for the last month of my employment.
They put me up in a posh(ish) hotel and said i could put my food and a couple of drinks on the rooms bill as a thank you for my (lack of)hard work.
4 weeks later my food bill was over £2500 due to me having a steak and between 10-18 pints a night in the hotel bar. I didn't have to pay a penny back. Winner.
Figuring i was onto a good deal I negotiated staying on to help out for a bit longer. The bastards moved me to a cheaper hotel with no beer budget, but with a bit of negotiating with the owner i got moved to a cheaper room and spent the difference in the bar.
Result. Sad thing is though i ened up staying on to help out for another 4 years, The colonel did pay half my rent for the first 6 months tho ugh.
Sanders your alright in my book.
