🕸️ Crawling the web

Here is what else is happening across the ‘net.

🍨 You are probably storing your ice cream wrong

🌮 As of 2023, Taco Bell has served two billion customers—yet most of us remain unaware of how to get the best value for our money at the fast-food chain. 

🚗 When calling a ride with an app like Uber, users are generally told before their ride how much they are going to pay. However, one user on TikTok says that may no longer be the case.

🍬 One customer says they placed a DoorDash order for a package of sour Airheads candy and chose to tip exceptionally well knowing that their order was a little odd. That didn’t stop the delivery driver from dropping it off in an absurd way

🍽️ Buffet restaurants are known for being a good bang for your buck—it seems this is especially true if you “shoplift” food home. With the rising cost of groceries nowadays some people think stealing from a buffet is just a sign of the times, others argue that it’s unjust and others find it just plain funny.

🛏️ An Airbnb host went viral on TikTok after sharing how she prefers guests to leave their dirty bed sheets. However, her comments divided some viewers who believed the woman was too harsh.

👋 Before you go

Liv (@justliveliv0) a TikToker and Krispy Kreme appreciator, shared her shock at learning the true meaning behind the donut brand’s ubiquitous Hot Light.

While frequenting a Krispy Kreme location during its Hot Light hour to purchase herself an original glazed donut, Liv said the employee handed it to her for free, stating that she didn’t have to pay because “the hot light is on.”

Taken aback, Liv was left with several questions: How long has this been a practice? How many free donuts has she missed out on her entire life? Is there a limit to how many donuts one could get? Is this really common knowledge?
