Why I avoid free stuff

2 min read

There’s a saying ‘Who says no to free stuff… Everybody likes freebies right! but not me, at least not anymore. I have learnt to avoid anything that smells free in every way possible.

Freebies Freebies Freebies! That’s how a tailor friend is still with my fabric for almost a year now and I cannot ask when it will be ready because obviously it’s a free service 😥. And eventually, when the dress arrives, that’s if it ever will, I wouldn’t be able to complain if it’s not sown to my taste because it is free right!

But wait! why do people who give free stuff get bitter when someone complains about a glitch? They say it’s a sign of ungratefulness, well I somewhat disagree. It all depends on how the person raises the issue. I’m aware that some people can be so arrogant in relating a problem but it doesn’t excuse the fact that their complaint is valid.

Deadly Zone! pay for it if you can

I avoid free stuff because I want no stench of sentiments if I ever need to vent over a knockoff product or service. Since I paid for the damn thing, the seller should be held accountable for any errors. I hate to feel dissatisfaction after getting a product and I even hate myself more when its free and I cannot talk about it. That’s cheating!

By the way, why is it that most people who give out freebies don’t ever give something that’s worth it? it’s either something they no longer need Or there’s always a condition to it? well like they say, nothing goes for nothing Yeah!

Free things to me always come with a bigger cost. At least I can say that cos I’ve had several experiences… Where people do you have favors and then when it’s your turn they expect you to do more, exceedingly and abundantly more than they did to you even when you never asked for it.
