Okay, so yesterday was National Donut Day Friday June 7th 2019.
Someone in the office at Jack Cleveland Casino decided it would be a good idea to order some donuts for the staff and maybe a few distributed around the casino – during the day.
That person ordered from a local company 400 donuts. Four hundred donuts is a lot.
When the donuts arrived they discovered that the person who ordered the donuts mistakenly ordered 400 dozen donuts. So instead of 400, they got 4,800 donuts.
Now nobody except the person paying knows how much they cost, but the going rate is about a dollar a donut. So maybe they paid 50 cents each. Just guessing here. At 50 cents each, 400 donuts would cost $200.00.
What they thought was going to be a petty cash item of 200 dollars turned into a major expense at $2,400.00.
They accepted the donuts and made a lot of people happy, since they not only distributed them to employees and guests inside the casino, but then went outside onto Public Square with trays giving free donuts away.
What originated as a blunder may have turned into an unintentional advertisement strategy that spread some good will from the casino to the public.
Everybody had a big laugh which alone was probably worth the $2,400. Hope no one got yelled at.
