7-Eleven Day is almost upon us! Before we dive into the exciting promos in store, let’s first take a look at how Filipinos are celebrating #711Day with their most memorable and funny experiences inside the stores. Typical Pinoy Crap on Facebook asked folks for their unforgettable 7-Eleven stories and the entries are hilarious. Check them out below!
Confession: People have dropped hotdogs
You’re not alone.
There are only two kinds of Pinoys: The ones who’ve dropped a Big Bite hotdog and the ones who haven’t. If you’re part of the latter, congratulations. You’ve got quite a grip! But most people are part of the former, as some Filipinos confessed. Dropping a slippery hotdog fresh out of the steamer is a hilarious core memory — whether you put it back or paid for it to maintain a good conscience.
Make sure you pay for it, folks!
Struggling with the tape
The strongest tape in the world.
7-Eleven is known for its variety of affordable yet delicious ready-to-eat meals. These are literal lifesavers during petsa de peligro. That is, if you can open the box that’s sealed with what seems to be the strongest tape in the world. Everyone loves their Busog Meals, but you’d have to fight tooth and nail before you could eat yours. It’s still #WorthIt though.
This guy’s barkada even made it into a game!
7-Eleven dates are the best kind
There’s something for everyone.
One comment reminisced how 7-Eleven is their go-to date spot. And we can see why — each store is literally a treasure trove. It’s got everything from food to accessories for a range of people.
But unfortunately, others had the opposite experience – breaking up at a 7-Eleven branch. No matter, we’re sure they found a tub of ice cream or a slice of cake on the shelves to comfort themselves.
Breakups are the worst but at least there are 7-Eleven treats to comfort you.
Being friends with the staff
You can make friends with the ates and kuyas.
Others have made 7-Eleven such an integral part of their daily routine that they’re even friends with the staff. You’ll realize it’s a wonderful community of people that run and visit these 7-Eleven stores.
Instant friends with the staff.
7-Eleven has been there since Day 1
Your purchases are a witness to how much you’ve grown.
7-Eleven is a no-brainer option for food and other snacks when you’re pressed for money. It was there when you were a student with no income, and it will be there to hold your hand through petsa de peligro. But even if you’re now a working adult who can afford fancy dinners every now and then, a trip to 7-Eleven is sometimes exactly what you need. One simply never outgrows 7-Eleven, no matter what their position in life is.
7-Eleven is there for you.
A safe haven
Raise your hand if you hung out at 7-Eleven to cure a hangover.
The bright glow of a 7-Eleven down a street means a safe place. But it also means it could be a hangout spot to nurse your hangover before going home. We’ve all done that before but of course, as this commenter experienced, you have to purchase at least one item to justify your stay.
Not knowing how things operate
There’s always a first time for everything!
How does one open the steamer door? Which button should you press for the right City Cafe flavor? There’s a first time for everything and these people shared how they had to go through a few embarrassing moments before they finally learned. Hey, accidentally putting coffee instead of hot water in your cup noodles could happen to you too.
Uhm. At least he didn’t drop the hotdog.
Growing old with you
7-Eleven has witnessed their relationship through the years.
This commenter shared how 7-Eleven was a witness to her relationship from the start. She and her significant other often met at a 7-Eleven store and hung out. Now, they have a kid but their tradition of spending time together remains the same – buying snacks from 7-Eleven and just spending time with each other.
These heartwarming and funny stories prove 7-Eleven is a big part of our lives. It’s the official go-to for anything we need – from random cravings, midnight snacks, roadtrip essentials, and is even part of big and small celebrations.
