This Just In!
I’ve just learned that all 7-Eleven stores will NOT be giving away Slurpees on Free Slurpee Day this year because of the “uncertainties associated with the Covid-19 pandemic.”
The tradition occurs every July 11th (a.k.a 7/11)…and has been a semi-national-holiday since 2002.
I myself have gotten ten to fifteen free Slurpees due to this glorious day…and so I’m damned disappointed! Now, in fairness, 7-Eleven says that you CAN get a free Slurpee by doing something with their app…but still…I can barely work a calculator…you think I’m gonna know how to navigate the 7-Eleven app?!
Oh, well! Screw you, Coronavirus!
