The Free Disease
I notice that on many occasions at work, people bring in food or other items and leave them in the kitchen area for anyone interested. These free items don't last long. Maybe a half hour at most.
What strikes me funny is when food is left in the kitchen right before people are returning from eating lunch. They see this ‘free’ food and they must take as much as possible. AND, mind you this is after they just ate!
Why is it that when we see something “for free”, we must have it. Whether we need or want it, it must be ours?! haha
Have you ever been guilty of seeing something for free at the curb or even a garage sale and had to have it? I have been in a car with someone and upon seeing a free item, they turned to me and said, I'm going to take that. Why, I asked...do you need it? No...but it's free, I'll find someplace to put it.
I realize someones garbage is someone else's treasure, but does that have to include anything and everything that is "free" ? and people wonder why they have clutter around...
There are even people that sign up for anything and everything or receive any free offers that pass their eyes.
The program or information might not even be something they are truly interested in, but feel compelled to receive it or be a member.
Are they afraid they'll miss out on something?
Just an observation...
