On Friday when I came from the track after losing another couple of grand (can be verified by a couple of forum members in here) there was - to my pleasant surprise - an extra Large bucket of Popcorn from Cinemark on my table counter. But it still had that "Free Refill" tag on it.
I axed my wife where'd this come from and why was the free refill tag still on it?
She goes, "Oh, I went to see Twilight and I bought you popcorn on my out because I didn't want any."
I go Thanx and promptly ate the whole bucket in 5 minutes because I was figuratively starving to death. That was Friday about 7pm.
Sunday morning my daughter comes home and axes my wife to go see Twilight again with her. My wife who's addicted to that Twilight love like I am to popcorn and gambling, agrees.
I go, "Oh, take that empty popcorn bucket and refill it for me - the free refill tag is still on it."
My wife goes, "No, you're not supposed to do that - that’s only for the day of the movie."
I go, "Hide it under your jacket - and sneak it in and then refill it for me."
She goes, "No that's against the law" or some nonsense like that.
Needless to say, that empty bucket with the free refill tab on it sits on my kitchen counter and I am very depressed over it.
Question: What's the real rule on Free Popcorn refills?
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Hogwash! Use the bag as many times as it will still hold popcorn. There is a 177% mark-up on concessions and everyone knows it, so don't feel badly about it.
Just keep using it, rinse it out as required, it's prolly not dishwasher safe.
Take it as a carry on, use it to carry your forms or toothbrush etc etc, rinse it out, take it to the Cina-plex 17 the night before your next ride at the Spa, Gulfstream or Churchill.
put a strap on the bottom of it and use it as a jockey helmet until baseball season then paint it blue and you will have a dodger batting helmet that you can take to the games and get a refill of popcorn.
