Truth

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2014

Today's Writing Prompt: Truth

If there's one undeniable truth you have learned in life, it is....



There is no such thing as free.  Anything that says it is free generally has a cost attached to it.  Look at the silly toys and promotions to encourage children to eat junk food and parents to purchase that kiddie meal.  The cost is included in the meal.  Getting a discount on your cable means someone else has to pay more.  Eating samples in a store generally ends up with you buying the product.  Maybe not at that moment, but there is a good chance you will.  Receiving a used washer and dryer generally means the donor needs to get rid of it, doesn't want to pay to get rid of it and makes themselves feel better by giving it to someone.  Chances are that a matter of weeks after it is installed it will break down and cost a lot of money to be repaired or removed.  I could go on and on but that would be depressing.

Let's just say I never trust that something is actually free . . .
