Της έφερε πρωινό στο κρεβάτι. Του απάντησε με μια σφαίρα

so dennys is doing this promotion where people can come in for a free grand slam breakfast from 6am - 2pm.  i didn't think i was going to do this but i woke up real early so what the heck?  i got there exactly at 6am and it was already busy with maybe 20 plus people waiting in line.  thankfully i was alone and i managed to grab a seat at the counter with practically no waiting time.  i heard from the waiters that they only had two cooks and more were coming later at 7am.  naturally it did take longer than normal to get my order taken and for my food to arrive and even longer for my bill to get to me.  i didn't mind as i don't have anywhere to go today.  bear in mind this is all going on between 6am and 6.45am.  

so why does dennys do this?  well according to an article on msn:

- 1,560 restaurants participating in this promotion
-   an estimated 2 million people expected to partake in this promotion 
- value of grand slam breakfast is $5.99
- with those numbers, this promotion has a face value of $15,457,075
- cost to prepare food is maybe 25% or 30% of the actual cost which translates to dennys spending $4,637,122.
- food is free, but drinks aren't.  with an average of $1.70 spent per person drinks, you're looking around at around $4,250,000 in drink revenue.  
- that basically means that they will end up spending around $400,000 for this entire promotion.  the free press that comes with all this makes this all worth it.

Ξινή και άκρως επικίνδυνη για τη σωματική του ακεραιότητα βγήκε η προσπάθεια του Zia Segule από τη Βόρεια Καρολίνα, να κάνει έκπληξη στη γυναίκα του προσφέροντας της πρωινό στο κρεβάτι. Ο Zia αποφάσισε να επιστρέψει από τη δουλειά νωρίτερα, για να της κάνει έκπληξη.

Μια κίνηση που μάλλον θα εκτιμούσε και η σύζυγός του, Tiffany, αν δεν είχαν λάβει την τροπή που έλαβαν τα πράγματα. Ο Zia, όταν μπήκε σπίτι, κατά λάθος ενεργοποίησε τον συναγερμό, με αποτέλεσμα η Tiffany, που κοιμόταν στο δωμάτιο, να νομίζει ότι είναι ληστής. Φοβισμένη, όταν τον άκουσε να πλησιάζει στο δωμάτιο, πυροβόλησε στην πόρτα του υπνοδωματίου. Ο Zia χτυπήθηκε στο στήθος, ενώ κρατούσε τον δίσκο με το πρωινό. Ευτυχώς επέζησε του απίστευτου περιστατικού και είναι καλά στην υγεία του. Και σίγουρα θα αργήσει να ξανασκεφτεί να κάνει έκπληξη στη γυναίκα του...
