In this world, you need to make your own luck. One man realized that no one was going to just hand him a lifetime supply of Wendy's chicken nuggets, so he decided to take matters into his own hands.
On Wednesday, Twitter user Carter Williams reached out to Wendy's and asked how many retweets he'd need in order to win a year's supply of chicken nuggets.
Wendy's (which has a notoriously savage Twitter account) gave him a pretty high number: 18 million retweets. Not one to back down from a challenge, Carter accepted.
Carter then tweeted out a screen shot of his interaction with Wendy's and pleaded with Twitter to help him win his chicken nuggets. In his words, "A MAN NEEDS HIS NUGGS."
The good people of the internet quickly began retweeting Carter. So far, it's racked up over 950,000 retweets. Twitter takes care of its own.
Though he's still pretty far off from his goal of 18 million, Carter's quest for chicken nuggets managed to get far more attention than Wendy's ever expected it would.
Will Carter Williams ever get his year's supply of nuggs? Stay tuned.
