When is FREE not really free?!!

When is FREE not really free?!!


It seems as if everywhere you go someone or some business is offering "something for nothing". So, when is it really free. Let’s do a few calculations.

* Free cookie from Subway -offered on 29th of Feb. = 220 calories

*Free pancake stack from IHOP- offered on 28th of Feb.= 490 calories + the cost of butter and syrup.

BOGO candy bars at local Walgreens…hmm depends on candy bar. Of course nothing short of 250

Additional Calories = additional weight = additional health care expense (for me additional diabetes medication + additional test strips + additional health risk)

So the question that I ask … is it truly “free”? And is FREE worth the price?
