You know, I've worked for Wendy's, Burger King, and Dunkin Donuts. My friend Dave and I used to make sandwiches at Wendy's all the time and eat
them. We'd eat the rest of the fries. We NEVER THREW FOOD OUT. At Burger King, we had to pay for our food full price. No discount. But the
manager would, every now and then, give us a left-over something-of-the-order. We threw away TONS of stuffs. I quit.
I used to work the closing shift at Dunkin Donuts and I would have to count all the bagels, muffins, and donuts that were left near the end of the
night and write the number down in the inventory book. The OWNER, Jerry, did not care what we did with the food after we inventoried it. The reason
being because sometimes he would have us haul the bags into large trash bins for him so that he could pick them up and use the donuts/muffins/bagels
as DEER BAIT for HUNTING. I didn't much like that use... But, oftentimes I would bring a couple of Blueberry muffins home for breakfast the next
morning and also all the plain and everything bagels for us to have for lunches, etc.
Now, I don't know what these corporations policies are necessarily...
But I do know that it DOESN'T MATTER. Wherever I've been, I've successfully demolished company policies anyway. Give food to people and give
clothes to people. Tell your manager that it would be a great help. If they continue to threaten, say, "Go ahead! Fire me for helping people! I
dare you." I use this tactic frequently and, scary as it is, it works almost all the time.
Look, these companies do not own anything. In all reality, we all own nothing. It's just a big game. It's no use having people starve or be
shelter-less all because of our stupid big game. Anyone who thinks that it is okay for these companies to destroy this stuff without thinking of
others is clearly a fool.
Careful contemplation of this situation will result in this logic :
Companies will have a hard time selling stuff if people find out there is a way that they can get some of this stuff for free. If people can possibly
get some clothes for free, then why spend the money? Just wait until people have bought what they will and for the companies to throw the rest out!
Why pay for food? Just wait for the companies to throw out what's left.
In this way, companies might make a LITTLE BIT LESS MONEY. However, the impact will not be nearly as much as they are telling you. Here's why.
People Love to Pay for Stuff.
Have you ever gotten something for free? You like it? You enjoy it more than anything? You have a good personality probably. You're appreciative.
Most people are not this way. Most people MUST BE SATISFIED by paying for a product that they don't really need but something they can enjoy and
say/think, "I bought this!" Most people who eat, there must be someone who has to take the glory for the very presence of the food! If people get
free food, they can pretty much thank God they are getting to eat! People don't like that. People want to be the gatherer/hunters so-to speak...
More like new-age versions of the gatherers, but...
Anyhow, another argument against the giving away of free food is health regulations. REALLY?! Are you people serious? Because you didn't receive
some green paper-cloth in return for handing over a donut, the donut must be a health-hazard. Mwahaha. That's my favorite. Yes, granted, over time
the donut will not be as good. They use preservatives in these foods that are not really good for you. However, SOMETHING is certainly better than
Also.. If you are really just worried about having clothing, then learn to make it. If you find a bag of these clothes all destroyed somewhere, piece
them together! Find a way! Seriously, if you want to be warm, you're not going to worried about patched pants. Lemme tell you, there are enough
freaks who PAY FOR RETARDED LOOKIN CLOTHING that you won't be judged more than they for having made your comfortable clothing!
You aren't going to change the greedy who justify themselves by saying, "Everyone has to work for it." They will suffer greatly for their willing
denial of good.
But you can be intelligent and honest and learn to make a life out of thinking, doing, and sharing!
