People Are Taking 7-Eleven’s ‘Bring Your Own Cup Day’ Way Too Far, Because Of Course They Are

What’s better on a hot, sticky, sweaty day than a Slurpee? 7-Eleven has long given us exactly what we needed on those gross summer days, and no day is better than ‘Bring Your Own Cup’ day. All they ask is that you pay $1.50 and you can fill up literally anything you want with your guilty pleasure

‘Bring Your Own Cup’ quickly turned into ‘Bring Anything That Fits As Much Slurpee As Possible.’ Buckets, goblets, trash cans, toilets–you think of it, and chances are that people have filled it with Slurpee.

They Put Out A Challenge In 2017

So 7-Eleven really seems to know their customers well, because they didn’t even try to hide what they expected customers to do come D-Day.

They were very aware that people would show up with anything that can hold whatever solid-liquid combo a Slurpee counts as. The look on this guy’s face shows all the joy and doom that 7-Eleven investors expect on the big day. He’s clearly in Slurpee heaven.

Always Have A Plan

It’s very important to have your wits about you when going out in search of cheap Slurpees. Frankly, everyone should have a detailed map on their phone at all times that show where every possible Slurpee can be found.

This guy isn’t messing around and knows that some stores are going to be more lenient than others when it comes to the definition of a cup. Always have a backup plan.

Grab The First Thing With A Handle

Here’s a learning lesson. This is what happens when you don’t do your research. While us normal people have ‘Bring Your Own Cup’ day circled on our calendars for months, this is what happens when you panic after learning about it on your lunch break.

You run home and grab the first thing you can because there’s no guarantee the store is going to have enough to last the entire day.

Or Grab The First Bowl-Shaped Thing You Can Find

Even royalty knows a good deal when they see it. How do you think the Royal family got all that money anyway? It wasn’t by buying full price Slurpees, that’s for sure.

This person didn’t have a pitcher on hand, so naturally, they GRABBED A CHALICE to hold their delicious Slurpee. One day, I hope to have the money to afford the finer things in life while still being able to clip coupons and cut costs wherever I can.

He Did The Math

Whenever there’s a deal everyone can take part in, you see people rediscover skills they haven’t had since grade school.

Sure, we learned our multiplication tables way back in elementary school, but when we’re talking Slurpees, just watch the math flow from our brains. This guy did the math and figured that he could pocket the 50 bucks he was given to pick up lunch for his workplace. He’s got upper-middle management written all over him.

I Hope It’s Clean

Garbage cans are designed to handle everything life throws at them. Whether we’re throwing out our least favorite Chrismas gifts or scraping off some nasty potato salad without hurting someone’s feelings, trash cans are there to take it all on.

So why wouldn’t we trust them with holding all the Slurpee goodness it can? This is clearly a clean freak who was ready to invest in a new trash can anyway, so why not kill two birds with one stone?

One Cup To Rule Them All

I don’t have any idea how you get ahold of this giant Slurpee cup, but I’m pretty sure I need three. This looks like the cup that would sit on top of a Slurpee truck that would go up and down the street on a hot summer day.

This guy clearly has some 7-Eleven connections. Is he the owner’s son? Can’t he always get cheap Slurpees if that’s the case? There are just too many unanswered questions here, along with quite a bit of envy.

All That Money Down The Drain

Ok. I admit I’d do a lot for a super cheap Slurpee, but grabbing my favorite toilet bowl to stock up is not one of them. I’m not a plumber, but I can’t imagine even a brand new toilet meets the sanitary standards to literally be clean enough to eat off of.

People like throwing out numbers that the toilet is actually cleaner than other places like the bottom of your feet, but I’m not here for it.

Band Practice Is Officially Canceled

So I was never big into the brass instruments, but anything that has a spit valve probably shouldn’t be trusted to hold your Slurpee.

Using a trombone as a cup may have seemed like a great idea before band practice, but think again. You might be trying to get the perfect sugar rush for your 80th rendition of ‘Living In America,’ but considering how rusty those things can get, I’d probably go check out a hospital ASAP.

You Know When People Say You Have A ‘Hollow Leg?’

This guy might not have had the big day circled in red marker on his calendar, and clearly, he couldn’t be bothered to head home to get himself a bucket. So he did the only logical thing and used his prosthetic leg to stock up on that sweet, sweet Slurpee.

He might not have a great exit strategy, but I’m sure it’s all going to be worth it in the end.

Just Like Mom Used To Make

All be the first to say it — the rice cooker is the most underrated appliance that a house can have. I know what you’re thinking — ‘it just makes rice!’ That’s not really true, but even if that’s all it does, that’s a staple of any good meal.

This guy proved that the rice cooker can indeed do other things, but apparently, someone tried to steal his social media thunder.

Give This Man His Props

Not so surprisingly, someone tried to steal his moment in the sun by posting his picture online for some free internet points. Well, the whole reason people grab the most ridiculous things possible for ‘bring your own cup’ day is for the likes.

This guy felt cheated, so he made sure to post a recap of how far he got in his sugary journey. Looks like the green didn’t last.

This Just Seems Dangerous

While I’m all for the idea of using a rice cooker for your Slurpee cup, a microwave might be pushing it. For starters, a rice cooker usually has a removable bowl, so really, there’s no harm done.

On the other hand, a microwave has all kinds of gadgets and gizmos that will no doubt be ruined, and almost every microwave ever has a bunch of spaghetti sauce stains all over the inside.

The Real Purpose Of Kiddie Pools

It’s really hard to just go and buy a kiddie pool, especially if you don’t actually have any kids. They can be a great way to cool down after a long day at work, and if you have a dog, they’re perfect to keep them cool.

However, the real reason they were made was to actually hold as much Slurpee as humanly possible. This guy is just living his best life.

People Took Notice

Clearly, a bunch of people have jumped on the kiddie pool train when it comes to ‘Bring Your Own Cup’ day, and I can’t say I blame them. Honestly, this is probably the most cost-effective strategy and the best way to make sure nothing goes to waste.

Think about it? If you can’t possibly stomach any more Slurpee, you can just swim in it for the rest of the day. You might be sticky, but you won’t succumb to heat stroke.

For When It Goes Right Through You

So, for those of you who don’t know, that’s a urinal. If you’re fortunate enough to never have had to sit in a hospital bed for a while, this is the easiest way to go pee. However, this guy apparently figured it was the perfect thing to bring to fill with Slurpee.

I’ll give it to him — this is brilliant if he’s on a late night shift and can’t duck out for a bathroom break.

Way To Reuse That Bucket

When you see people walking into 7-Eleven with buckets, but you don’t own a bucket, you have to go get one. And which company is more famous for buckets than KFC is?

These two girls made sure to make the most of not only the deal but made sure to make a whole day of it. This is actually a perfect date night option now that I think about it.

Seriously, This Is The Only Place To Get A Bucket

I’m not going to lie, the odds of me seeing that it’s ‘Bring Your Own Cup’ day as I drive by, and decide to not only go home to grab some kind of container before circling back is pretty low.

However, if I’m driving by and see that it’s ‘Bring Your Own Cup’ day and then drive by a KFC, I’m going to kill two birds with one stone. You might get a weird look when you ask for a double-bucketed chicken deal, but it’s a small price to pay.

They Took A Good Idea Too Far

So remember all those things I said about doing all these things for social media internet points? Ya, this guy definitely was going for the clout with this photo shoot.

While he did what these other people did with the KFC bucket (which I’m a definite fan of), they doubled down with the horse head, which is just never a good move. When you’re trying to drink your body weight in Slurpee at least.

It’s Every Man For Himself

When it’s game time, you have to be willing to make sacrifices. If that means setting your baby on the ground because this cup is a two-hander, well, you put that baby on the ground.

They say that women and children get to go first, but that baby can’t even have a Slurpee, so really they’re just taking up some valuable real estate. Especially the baby, since it can’t even help carry more Slurpees.

Shredding The Ice Even In Summer

What can you use your sled for during the summer? How about cover it with a Slurpee. It’s built for the ice, after all. This Twitter user evidently ran out of cups in his house, so he picked a Slurpee vessel that he could also ride home.

In this picture, we see what frat boys do without a funnel. Crack open a cold one with the sled, as they say. You can pour the entire Coca-Cola Slurpee onslaught onto your face to cool down.

Good Things Come In Small Packages

So far, everyone who has visited 7-Eleven aimed for the largest amount of Slurpee imaginable. But what about the people who just want a shot of sweetness? This Instagram user brought in a condiment container to hold a tiny plop of Slurpee.

Worth the money? Probably not. Worth the internet points with that incredible picture? Absolutely. Hopefully, he enjoyed his two spoons’ worth of Slurpee. At least he didn’t get brain freeze!

Get One For The Party

Let’s be real: Will you really drink an entire sled of Slurpee on your own? If you’re going to bring a giant container, why not make a party out of it? These clever folks brought an entire beverage dispenser to 7-Eleven.

They took the efficient route and brought the cheap Slurpee home to share among their friends and family. If that doesn’t make for an incredible game day, nothing does.

Barbie Wants Some Too

This little girl earns artistic points for her Barbie masterpiece. For those who don’t know, she took a Barbie bath tub and created bubble shapes out of multi-colored Slurpee. When else can you do that in your life?

Also, let’s observe a moment of silence for the Barbie with a person-sized hair clip. I’m sure she’s enjoying her multi-colored bubble bath. Hopefully these toys were cleaned beforehand. And afterward, too.

Rain Or Shine, It’s Slurpee Time

Thinking of throwing out your old rain boots? This woman repurposed hers for Slurpee time. She now has two cups AND a waterproof container. And you thought about abandoning your boots at Goodwill.

What if you walk to 7-Eleven while it rains, and it clears up by the time you enter the store? Well, the answer is right in front of you. Or rather, it’s on Instagram, raking in some serious karma.

Just Like A Vacation In Hawaii

Visit 7-Eleven with a watermelon bowl, and you’ll feel like you’re sipping on a margarita on a beach in Maui. The tanginess of Blue Raspberry Slurpee mixes with the freshness of the watermelon to create a…a blend.

With this exotic cup, you might forget that you’re drinking a Slurpee at 7-Eleven. Except you won’t. The reality of not being able to afford a Maui vacation will never leave. Enjoy your $1.50 Slurpee.

It’s For Nemo

Don’t have any fish? Use your old fish tank to stock up on Slurpees during ‘Bring Your Own Cup’ day. Have fish? Fill it anyway. Breed mutant Slurpee fish. Sell that 7-Eleven. Profit.

Like others before him, this guy grabbed the largest empty container he could and shoved all the Slurpee into it. He could eat an entire gooey, non-nutritious meal from that tank, just like the former fish did.

Hail The Norse Gods!

If the Vikings still sailed the seven seas, they would have stopped by 7-Eleven with their hollowed horns, filled up some cherry-flavored Slurpee, and toasted to Odin. Or, they would have raided 7-Eleven for the convenient store’s loot. Either way, they would have toasted to Odin.

This customer opted for historical authenticity rather than high quantities of Slurpee. Or, rather, a modern take on historical authenticity. He had to use that hollow horn cup for something, after all.

This Guy Drank Out Of A Condom

Why would he do anything like this? Because he can. And who is 7-Eleven to deny business? The internet loves condom jokes and ‘Bring Your Own Cup Day,’ so this man raked in enormous amounts of clout by achieving both.

Nothing tastes better than lube with Slurpee. Yum. But hey, at least he got the clever post out of it, right? I’m sure 7-Eleven staff just love seeing their logo in the background.

The Straw Is Basically A Shovel, Anyway

You know how the end of a 7-Eleven Slurpee straw bends like a miniature spoon for convenience? Why not just eat the Slurpee with a spoon, or better yet–a shovel? This girl brought her entire beach bucket and shovel to 7-Eleven.

Although others have hauled giant buckets into the store, no one else has conjured imagines of someone eating Slurpee out of a bucket while sun bathing on a beach. Is that the height of success, or the height of failure? You decide.

They Got Their Coworkers Covered

What happens when you can only spend your work break getting a cheap Slurpee? You bring the largest container that the office supplies, which for most people consists of the coffee pot.

Now, the person who stocked up on Slurpee can share with their coworkers. At least they were kind enough to include a straw. Wait–there’s only one straw. Oh. This might all be for one person, then. Never mind; no one else gets their coffee until Ralph’s finished his Slurpee.

Ready For The Big Game?

It’s ‘Bring Your Own Cup Day!’ But you have a soccer game on that day. The solution: fill up soccer balls with Slurpee and bring them to your whole team. Perfect! Nothing could go wrong when people kick around a soccer ball stuffed with Slurpee.

In reality, someone likely cut a whole in their soccer ball in order to fill it with Slurpee. I hope they enjoyed drinking out of it, since they’ll never be able to use that ball again.

Let That Sink In

Some people love Slurpees. Others prefer to pour them down the sink. One man united both sides of the argument by drinking his Slurpee out of the sink. If he can’t suck up the remaining frozen bits, all he has to do is turn on the nozzle and water it down. Flawless.

How many more home appliances do you think will be carried into 7-Eleven? So far, we’ve seen a toilet, a rice cooker, a trash can, and now, a sink. The convenience store will never be safe from the home appliances.

God Save The Slurpee

Everyone has learned about the Boston Tea Party in school, when the Founding Fathers threw teapots full of Slurpee into the Boston Harbor for the Constitution. Or something like that. Either way, this patriotic vessel recaptures that historic moment from ten thousand years ago!

That’s not even a teapot. It’s a cream container. Also, it has a straw. Does it need to have a straw? Probably not. Still, sipping cherry Slurpee from a creamer is far more hygienic than slurping it from a sink.

“Uh, No, We Didn’t Bring Our Own Cups.”

Whoever hand-crafted these 7-Eleven cups specifically for ‘Bring Your Own Cup Day’ is the real MVP. The imitated logo looks neat and clear-cut. The “cups” almost look like 7-Eleven bag. Even the staff are fooled; the worker’s trying to scan it.

Why would you pick up a plastic cup from 7-Eleven when you can craft your own and bring it to the special promotion? This is something that people spend their time on, apparently.

3-D Print Your Own Cup

Speaking of crafting your own Slurpee cup, this customer went above and beyond by 3-D printing a professional-looking cup. It’s almost too fancy to be included with the rest of the list. Beyond the ‘Bring Your Own Cup Day’ joke, this person has some talent.

And that picture? Eloquent. The rule of thirds and logo backdrop truly outline the bold yet textured cup. It’s a work of art, this photo. Hardly even an internet meme.

“Honey, Can You Pick Up Some Milk On Your Way Home?”

Want to recycle that empty milk jug? You know where to go. This container guarantees four quartz of Slurpee, solid sealing, and an easy straw opening. What else could you want? Actual milk? Pffft.

For the people who don’t plan ahead for ‘Bring Your Own Cup Day’: grab a container, empty it, clean it, bring it. Viola! Guaranteed internet clout. Make sure to stick a straw in it and strap it into the back of your car, too.

A Perfect Snack For A Movie Night

What else is she going to use that popcorn container for? Popcorn? Not when there’s $1.50 Slurpees at 7-Eleven. This girl created the ideal movie treat by adding some gummy worms to the mix.

And everyone understands the struggle of drinking through only one straw. How about you drink through three straws instead? That’s what you do at the movies, right? Drop the shovel; drop the sink; just pick up three straws and you’re ready to rumble.

We Can’t Guarantee That This Isn’t Bleach

Remember that fake “drinking bleach” internet challenge years ago? A 7-Eleven customer took that idea to the next level. They filled a cleaned-out bleach container with Slurpee and stuck a straw into it, likely horrifying anyone who saw them drinking out of it.

At least, that’s what their Twitter said. Since we can’t see the Slurpee, we can’t guarantee that they weren’t actually drinking bleach. Maybe they just needed an excuse to pop a straw into the bottle.

Doctor’s Orders

Coughing a lot? The doctor prescribed Slurpee. Clearly, you can see the prescription label on the bottle, which means that Slurpees are officially healthy. For real, though–how many peoples’ jaws dropped when they saw people drinking directly out of cough syrup bottles?

In case you didn’t know, 7-Eleven often retweets and replies to these pictures. Their staff thinks it’s hilarious. As long as the workers keep letting people bring in hilarious cup, the internet will receive a surge of funny Slurpee pictures for years to come.
