Jim enjoying the 'Wendy's Free Frosty Weekend'. How many of you knew that Wendy’s was offering a free Frosty to anyone who asked for it this past weekend?

It was advertised on their website and in television commercials:

Offer good Friday, May 13 through Sunday, May 15.

No purchase necessary.

Supposedly, it was to help promote goodwill with Wendy’s customers again — after the finger incident.

Sunday night, after our visit to the movies, we swung by Wendy’s for our free Frostys.

But then Jim got cold feet…

Yes, I married Mr. Nice Guy, who refuses to take advantage of ANYone… including national corporations like Wendy’s.

I know, I know, it wasn’t taking advantage of them if they OFFERED the free Frosty. But I must admit, I did feel kinda bad for wanting something for free from a company that was struggling to stay afloat.

We decided NOT to contribute to Wendy’s demise in the fast-food industry and chose instead to pay full price for our little Junior Frostys.

That’s just the way we are Jim is… and I usually [reluctantly] follow.

Frostys Again?
Truth is, I don’t really like Frostys. Never have. They just don’t have much flavor, to me.

Jim, on the other hand, used to get them all the time when he was out & about on business trips. So this “Free Frosty” thing is likely to have a positive impact on him.

Perhaps he’ll be choosing the Wendy’s Frosty which is near our home, in lieu of making the long trek out to Cool Springs to purchase his all-time fave: a smoothie from Smoothie King!
