I covered some of the most egregious offenders in the marketing world, but the words "free" and "save" are by far the worst. I could have made an entire
documentary just on those two words alone.
If it's "free," then I probably don't want it. It's not free unless your time isn't valuable. If you wait in line for something free, that item is
worth exactly the amount of time you're willing to spend multiplied by your hourly rate. The only time it makes sense to wait for something "free" in line is
when you can sell whatever you're getting for more than your time is worth. I want to
smack people I see standing in line for free hotdogs. You're all idiots. It reminds me of a quote from an article I read in 2003:
Some of the best things in life are free? Well so are some of the worst, and I don't see anyone throwing a party when they get cancer. -Maddox
Holy shit, did I just quote myself? Fuck I rule! I could go on, but I already covered it in the episode, so watch it. Also, I keep getting requests to
cover more hate mail in these episodes, so I'll probably be tapping into YouTube and Facebook
comments as well as email for future episodes, since you dipshits rely on social media bullshit so much these days. More to come.
