Nothing is free. Somebody pays for everything, whether it be you or another. The Government pay for nothing, since they take our money and then re-distribute it 'less expenses' :(<br />
There is no such thing as a free lunch
A Monster rep gave me a free Monster Energy Drink the other day. I do not drink Monster so they will not gain any money off of me in the future. It is still in my fridge and will likely be there until someone else drinks it. How did I pay for this energy drink?
I am not saying that YOU paid for it, but somebody did. It might have been 'free' to you, but somewhere along the chain money changed hands to provide you with that drink. Monster still had to buy the ingredients and make the drink, and pay to transport it to you
That actually does make sense... But is very depressing to think about.
I agree! lol
But it is economics in action.
It's nice to get some things free.
Anything free for me is a gift
I like free things when the quality is equal to or better than the pay option. If I need something of quality I will pay for it before I take the lesser quality free option.
