The easy way to make friends

Updated on August 22, 2016

I have recently discovered that there's a really easy way to make friends in this big world that we all live in. It was so easy that I could hardly believe it worked myself. So I decided to write and tell you all about it in a brand new spanking hub. Now I'm not talking about making friends on Facebook or some other internet site where you never meet one another face to face. I'm talking about making friends the old fashion way, in person out in the real world, where many people on the internet have forgotten how to do this now a days. It was easier then I had ever imagined that it would be. So I'll now cut through all of the red tape that you'll find on most hubs, and get right down to the nuts and bolts of this hub. On my way to work I stopped to fill up my car with gas, and I got myself a pack of chewing gun while I was there. Not just any pack of gum, but a pack of chewing gum that had unheard of powers like I've never ever seen before. Later that day while I was at work I noticed a fellow coworker wasn't having the best of days when they spilled something. So I approached them, and offered them a stick of gum from out of my newly purchased pack of gum. They all accepted my offer and almost instantly after putting that new stick of gum in their mouth, a big grinning smile appeared on their face followed by a big thank you. That little piece of gum really made their day, and cemented a friendship for life. Throughout the remainder of the day I offered other coworkers a stick of gum, and I always got the same positive response each time from them as well. I literally had new friends coming from out of the woodwork. It's a good thing that this pack of gum held fifteen sticks. I learned that this was indeed a very special pack of gum, and not just your everyday average run of the mill gum. I figured if Superman chewed gum, then this would be the type of gum he'd chew. When you open a pack up of this delicious gum you'll see written on the inside cover - "Have your desert and chew it too!", which is so very true. It's new from Wriggleys, and it's sugar free as well, which makes it even better. It's also a great way to break ice with the opposite sex. So if you are looking for new friends or possibly even a spouse, the next time you stop for gas pick up a pack of extra dessert delights in the new Key lime pie flavor to share with them, and go for the gusto. In closing I would just like to add that I don't work for any chewing gum factory or sales company. A matter of fact where I work we're not even supposed to chew gum, but so far I've never heard about anyone being fired for this. I just simply feel from my experiences that this is the greatest tasting gum that I've ever had the pleasure of putting into my mouth, and that it's an instant friend finder. It's a chewing gum experience like you've never ever seen before in your life with never ending rewards. It's a sure fire icebreaker for any conversation, and can lead to cute things to say to your girlfriend, cute things to say to your boyfriend, and romantic things to say to your boyfriend!

      This is an interesting hub! Chewing gum is not allowed in my country so being able to chew gum does light up my day when I have friends who bring some back for me from their overseas trip.

      Such an easy, excellent idea! Why hasn't this idea made CNN News?!?! If this works with gum I wonder who I would meet if I gave out Snicker bars?!? :)

      I love this! It's a simple (and cheap) way of making friends. It's not the gum really that's the magic, but what it represents: sharing, camaraderie and caring. Good people can do nothing but respond with kindness to acts of sharing and good will. This is also a good way to weed out those of bad character. Those others will just grunt, grab the stick of gum without a thank you or just snidely lecture you about the state of your teeth. Thanks for the great advice! I'll try this method at my new job (when I find it).

      Key lime pie flavor gum? Sounds kind of interesting! I am just wondering how well does this taste...guess the only way to know is to give it a try.

      Thanks for the newsflash, THS. I'll have to try the mint chocolate chip. Only worried I'll be swallowing instead of just chewing it.

      BTW, you had asked if I could solve your latest question but didn't tell me the name of the hub. Let me know and I'll give it a stab.

      Dude, if you think the Key Lime Pie is awesome, you absolutely must try the Mint Chocolate Chip! I've found that everyone enjoys the Mint Chocolate Chip gum and I've won over people using that. Great hub and now I know I need to give the Key Lime Pie at try. I believe there is a Strawberry Shortcake, as well. I'll bet I could make even more friends if I carried all 3 packs. Thanks for the idea!

      Funny, this reminds me of the time my friend and I were the biggest advocates for Ice Breakers gum. We couldn't believe the sensation that gum gave us, like delicious minty explosions in our mouth - we offered everyone a piece every where we went. You would have thought we worked for Ice Breakers. Chomping away on it all the time. We got everyone hooked. Always had some extra to share. Your Key Lime flavor does sound tempting!Ahhh the power of gum. :)
