Things we get for free even though it's wrong

Okay so I took my DD to Six Flags yesterday. I had a season pass last year. I didn't get one this year due to the new baby arriving. Anywho - Six Flags sent me a pass in the mail. I just had to activate it online. Well the pass already had the parking symbol on it too. I did not activate it, but I did flash it at the parking stand when driving in. They waved me right through.

My DD is 3, but no one questioned her age. They let her walk right in as well. So yes, I got free parking and a free admission when technically I shouldn't have. I have to admit, it was a perk that helped me really enjoy my day even more. I actually bought more snacks and played more games than I would have because of it.

So come on, what do YOU get for FREE that you SHOULDN'T?

  • Hmmm...well the only thing I can think of isn't technically free, but my mom is paying for our trip home to TX even though we technically could pay for it. She just won't let us.

  • I always feel so guilty when something like that happens. Its hard for me to enjoy the situation.

  • Sometimes when I go through the McD's drive thru I will get an extra fry or chicken nuggets something like that and I don't really think much about it because for every 1 time that happens there are like 9 times that we get shorted something so I don't really feel bad about that.

  • It's called stealing... taking something that doesn't belong to you or that you didn't pay for & I find it kind of disturbing how you can brag so about being so dishonest... but that's just me.

  • I actually don't get asked to pay cover charge when I go out (and have had big groups of people with me waved in as well) and I get free coffees at gas stations I've never been to before (as well as the ones I frequent).

    I don't know why, but there you have it.

  • 2 things I can't stand in life. A liar, and a thief... Makes me unpopular, but it also makes me honest and trustworthy.
