There’s a saying ‘who says no to free stuff‘… well I do, I say a big NO. I have learnt to avoid anything that smells free in every way possible.
Freebies Freebies Freebies! That’s how a my friend who is a tailor still has 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 do giveaways get bitter when someone complains about a glitch? They say it’s a sign of ungratefulness, well I kind of disagree. It all depends on how the person raises the issue. I’m aware that some people can be so arrogant in reporting a problem but it doesn’t excuse the fact that their complaint is valid.
I avoid free stuff because I want to feel no stench of guilt 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 purchasing a product and I even hate it 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 give something that’s worth it? it’s either something they no longer need or there’s a condition to it? well like they saying, ‘nothing goes for nothing’ yeah!
