Need To Know Aug 3: Mustard Donuts, “Quiet Quitting” & More!

Ally Ali’s Need To Know August 3rd 2022:

Mustard Donuts: French’s mustard is doing a giveaway for National Mustard Day this Saturday.

You can get two mustard-flavored donuts sent to you by mail if you log onto at exactly 9:00 A.M. Eastern.  They’re also handing them out at six locations in New York City.

Each one is a classic glazed donut drizzled in a, quote, “savory yellow mustard coating” and topped with mustard cake crumbles.

If you don’t get one, they also posted recipes online to make your own mustard donuts at home.

Quiet Quitting: It’s not when you actually quit your job.  It just means you stop caring so much and refuse to go the extra mile.  So work is NOT your top priority.

Basically, you choose to only perform your specific job duties.  So instead of giving 110%, you back it off to whatever you can get away with and not get fired.

The goal is to make sure there’s room for other stuff in your life, so you’re not a workaholic.  But obviously there’s a fine line between having a good work-life balance and just being lazy.

And it’s not just trending here.  It’s also happening in other countries, including China where they use the term “tang ping,” which means “lying flat.”

It’s possible the pandemic lockdowns caused it.  People who were overworked finally got a break . . . realized that free time is nice . . . and wanted more of it.

And the fact that the wealth gap is widening probably hasn’t helped either.  When it seems impossible to get ahead, people don’t try as hard.

Everybody Hates Chris Animated Reboot: It’s called “Everybody Still Hates Chris” and this time it’s going to be ANIMATED.

Like the original,Chris will narrate it . . . and the stories will be inspired by his experiences growing up as a skinny nerd in the late 1980s in Brooklyn.

There isn’t a release date yet, but it’ll be on Paramount+ and Comedy Central.
