“It’s FREE. People would beg for trash if it was free.” – Pastor Dave Simiele’s comment about how people went stark raving mad at the Braves game last weekend trying to get free T-shirts.
Dave makes a great point. Americans are suckers for anything that is free. Even if it is covered with corporate logos and was made in China for two cents, we love free stuff. I am not quite sure why. Maybe we like to brag to our friends what we got for free. Then again, we will also proudly show off the new T-shirt that we bought in the mall for $35.
We seem to either like to promote our thriftiness or our trendy fashion sense. Go figure!
