I received this e-mail earlier today, it’s about a guy who purchases a $100 Olive Garden “all the pasta you can eat for 7 months” pass.
I don’t see that this guy is being generous, unless you consider it generous to give somebody else’s stuff away. Progressivism 101.
I just seem to be such a cynical asshole sometimes I can’t get a read on myself, am I being too harsh?
I’m glad he did it and he clearly helped people, but why put a video up on youtube like you’re a reincarnated Mother Theresa? How about a second video with him picking up the trash that was left after every meal because the homeless don’t seem to have much of an affinity for putting trash in garbage cans.

I’m pretty cynical too. I was left thinking that this was a video produced by Olive Garden. Every person he approached he made a point of saying, at least two times, “I have some Olive Garden for ya.” Not food. Not pasta. Olive Garden!
Also, I thought the promotion stipulated that you have to eat the pasta in the restaurant. What’s with the multiple bags being handed to him at the head waiter’s desk?
I’m not going to call and ask, THAT’S WHAT THIS OLIVE GARDEN PRODUCED VIDEO IS TRYING TO GET ME TO DO!
And now there is some cynical reader thinking I’m in on this because I’ve typed OLIVE GARDEN way too many times.
