If it’s free, it’s for me- Am I right?? Yesterday was Cheesecake Factory’s 40th anniversary, so to celebrate, they gave away 40,000 free slices of cheesecake.  The only way to get those slices was to order them on DoorDash. What a cool idea, right? Thanks Cheesecake Factory! Well, I’m guessing they’re regretting it today because people flooded DoorDash with orders, which led to chaos at a bunch of Cheesecake Factory locations across the country.  Drivers were battling for parking spots & were insanely crammed in the restaurants.  It got so bad at the Cheesecake Factory in Arlington, Virginia that one DoorDash driver wound up getting arrested for disorderly conduct when the cops showed up and he got into a fight with them.  Cheesecake Factory hasn't made a statement yet, but DoorDash tweeted that they expanded the offer and managed to deliver more than 60,000 free slices around the country. —
