Yeah he abused a system that was designed to drum up publicity for a restaurant chain. I'm so outraged about what he did I'm going to write my congressman.

Re: Olive Garden Never Ending Pasta Pass



Olive Garden allows endless pasta orders via takeout and hes a d-bag?

Whats the difference in just taking home and eating it himself vs giving it to people?

If a 91-year-old WWII veteran in Fort Lauderdale was feeding Olive Garden to the homeless, I'd surely advocate his immediate arrest

Make a movie about it, obviously.

Adam Sandler is an Olive Garden patron who obtains a magical pass that gives him unlimited pasta. He decides to exploit the system and starts ordering meals to go to feed out-of-luck locals played by Rob Schneider and Steve Buscemi. That is until an Olive Garden waitress played by Drew Barrymore calls him out on his flagrant abuse of their restaurant. It leads to this emotional scene:




I have way too much free time today.

In a choice between Panda Express and Olive Garden, I'll go with the genital cuff.

The answer is "nothing"... the response you'll get from dan30oly is the complete opposite of anything sociably responsible or acceptable. Let's not feed him anymore and maybe he'll go away.

I didn't realize this from the original promotion either. They let you do takeout? That seems like a setup for abuse.

If he can eat 5 servings by HIMSELF, I don't have a problem with it.

I am 100% positive Olive Garden did NOT intend teh pass for how he abused it.

But, really fuck Olive Garden for allowing take-out on teh pass to begin with.

The food sucks anyway.

No wonder Olive Garden's business is down ...

Re: Olive Garden Never Ending Pasta Pass

I have a hunch OG throws away food left at a table or food that was prepared but not ordered at a clip of 1000 /1 compared to the guy helping the homeless.
