    You mean taking over 10lbs of free chocolate and letting it sit on a shelf at home is not taking advantage of the o pportunity?

    No it is not considering I'm at the facility at least once a month and I only take a pound or two each time. My wife uses it for baking/cooking, but since she went on a diet and gave up sweets for Lent it has just piled up.

    So far the only free thing we have gotten is some wooden pallets to take back to our warehouse. They did come in pretty handy though!

    I was giving two free movie tickets for any REI Cinemas in SC. I help a worker at the shp/recv office with a computer problem. I used to be a IT tech.

    Not sure if this is a given thing. Me and my mentor transported the props from Pittsburgh to universal studios for a Tom cruise movie called "one shot" and because it was a live unload, we checked out all the props in their (like a big et etc) walked around the park before it opened then went on the rides when they opened. Was great fun, even got a ride back to our truck by saying we were teamsters

    Today, I was enriched with 360 each of plastic spoons, forks, and knives. Shipper damage going to Sam's warehouse.

    Great. I've been looking for my piece of the pie. NOW I have plenty of utensils, and no pie in sight.

    Story of my life.
