One day a friend invited me to have lunch with her. When she came to pick me up, I struggled boarding her car. Why? It’s because there are empty soda cups all over the floor of her car. I saw cups from about every fast food chain in the area such as McDo, KFC, Burger King, etc. She said that she’s saving them for her future visits to these places so she doesn’t need to order sodas. She just goes straight to soda machine for refills.
Another girl had mentioned to me that she collects McDonald’s barbecue sauce and use them when she cooks chicken wings. Another male friend told me that he knows somebody who never buys condiments because he just picks them up from fast food chains.
I have probably done my own share of stinginess but I doubt I would go to these extremities. I am guilty so far of enjoying a free breakfast in IKEA, a lot of BOGO free meals, lining up on free movie screenings and clipping tons of coupons.
How about you? How far would you go to enjoy free stuff?
