Most get rich quick schemes don't really result in getting rich, nor do they go quickly. In fact, most fail colossally. Sometimes, you'll see the effort a person will put into trying to scam some money and wonder, "why don't you put that same amount of effort in getting a job you can be proud of?" Still, I kind of secretly admire the hustle (or patience) or people like this guy, who stood underneath a Walmart sign waiting for the prices to literally fall on his head.
One of the longest running jokes in my family involves UPS trucks. Every time we saw one, we'd joke about jumping in front of it to collect a nice fat settlement. It's a joke that stood the test of time, once me and my siblings and cousins were old enough to drive we'd spot UPS trucks on the road and then teeter our cars very close to them and start chanting, "Hit us, just a bit! Hit us, just a bit!" to get some of that sweet settlement money.
None of us ever did get hit by a delivery truck (thankfully), nor did we ever get settlement money as the result of some accident that involved a business.
But that doesn't mean that every time I see an accident waiting to happen, my mind doesn't immediately think of getting some easy settlement money.
It's good to know that I'm not alone, either, because this dude has been waiting beneath a Wal-Mart sign for hours in the hopes of cashing in.
Twitter immediately started commenting on the man's brilliant idea.
Others just saw it as the perfect opportunity to post memes.
I guess it's one way to make a living. I personally think his time is better spent looking for UPS trucks, but to each his own.
