And they say there's no such thing as a free lunch!


A group of Australian friends uploaded a video of themselves getting just that, though: They figured out how to trick a McDonald's self-service machine into giving them a free burger.

A video the friends uploaded to YouTube shows that they selected the $1 hamburger option from the menu and asked for 10 of them.

"We'll have ten of these and we'll customize them so we don't want a regular beef patty so that takes $1.10 off our order, off our dollar hamburger," said a voice behind the camera.

The group then added one regular hamburger to the order.

"10 pattyless burgers, one regular hamburger, oh we get our discounts, that's pretty good," the voice says.

Removing the the hamburger patty from each sandwich discounts $1.10 from each burger. Because the hamburgers themselves only cost $1, this gives them a 10 cents credit for each burger. Do this 10 times, and they get a $1 credit on their order.

The group's cameraman selects a $1 hamburger with the patty and adds that to his cart, a move that leaves him with one free burger.

The group shows off their bounty at the end of the video.

A genius move? Or too much work? It's certainly gotten people intrigued, that's for sure.



Others were just bummed that this only works in Australia.


Still others felt that McDonald's should pay them for the free QA they had just provided.



Sounds about right.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
