Same here. Was wondering how the heck can a thread with this title get 4 pages long, and found comedy silver.

And while I'm all for sarcastic posts and stupid banter, I definitely expected at least a severe warning/suspension for the OP.

I'm overly sensitive to it perhaps, but what you detail in the first post is theft. Just because it's easier to do than stealing DVDs, doesn't mean it isn't the same thing.

Then add the mom comment on top of that...

But you and the thread are highly entertaining, and I'll never be a mod, so please carry on. I was just adding my two cents to try to keep you toned down perhaps, but it didn't come out right.

so when you go into like Mcdonalds, burger king, sonics... etc. and they have the soda dispencers (the ones you fill up yourself) you only fill up once ?? anything more would be theft ? hmm i honestly never saw it that way .... i guess NOW i know why people have been upset.

and if you notice the dude took a shot at me first before i made the mom comment... but the way people are looking at it its making it seem as though i should have just taking the joke and moved on without responding ... which doesnt seem fair no matter how long the guy has been posting here...

and if i were to get suspended or banded id rather it be for the thread then for the comment because like i said before WE ALL BUST BALLS here does that mean that anyone that has made fun of anybody should be suspended/banned?

Re: Targets No Longer Allowing Free Refills on Icee YMMV

Eating in a restaurant and filling up your cup *in the store* is different than coming back the next day and filling it up (again) or driving to a different McDonald's/whatever and filling it up.

Re: Targets No Longer Allowing Free Refills on Icee YMMV

No shit! I just discovered this thread.

I dont know whats more sad, stealing icees (I was just at Target and thought about getting one, hence why I clicked) that cost $1.25 or going to Target 3 times a week. For a 22 year old thats damn sad! At least lie man. Dont admit to this shit like youre proud!

As UAIOE pointed out there is a big difference. One allows refills (McDonalds) during the same visit. They don't say keep the cup and come back when you want. Do you go to all you can eat buffets and take the plate home and then expect to come back a few days later and fill it back up for free?

Man, if only gas stations were like the Target Icee machines... Oh, you probably wouldn't know that since you ride your bike.

Re: Targets No Longer Allowing Free Refills on Icee YMMV

Lovgun,

In response to your post questioning my opinion, here is some clarification. Please take this message not as an attack, but as advice/explanation for what the majority are trying to say.

There really isn't a possible defense. Getting refills on a different visit is theft, plain and simple. No possible excuse or justification. No intelligent person on the planet is going to seriously defend your action, and no corporate policy or law would allow it. It is no different from stealing DVDs from the store. But you do/did it because it is an easy crime.

And your response to the bicycle joke was way off base and an unnecessary escalation. The bicycle comment was hilarious, and totally appropriate as a response to your juvenile actions. His comment should have been taken by you as an obvious poke at your (insert non-aggressive word for stupidity). You could have "fought back" with a silly response or slight slam, but you responded to someone throwing a pebble at you with a nuclear bomb.
