You Won't Believe These Gift Vouchers Were Given As Presents!

Quora users were asked to say what’s the laziest thing they’ve ever done.

To order 3,099 rupees worth of shoes on Flipkart, pay the delivery person in cash, and then immediately cancel his order so that the refund would be credited into his bank account for him.

Following the massive response the above post received, Flipkart decided to take it to the public in a poll on Twitter to see how the matter should be handled.

The Toledo police department purchased $25-100 worth of gift cards to Meijer, a supermarket chain. They handed them out to drivers who appeared as if they could use the help. The apprehensive drivers who got pulled over were deeply surprised and touched by this grand gesture. We are too!
