One-Liner Wednesday – Free

The bag is free, but there’s a $2 charge

That was the response from the Jet Blue curbside check-in guy when I asked about the fee associated with my “free” checked bag. The more annoying part of this was that it had to be a debit or credit card, no cash.

This note is legal tender...
Maybe the font is too small.

  1. The writer in me has chewed this over and spit this out: It’s an NSA thing. There’s a $2 charge so you’ll HAVE to pay something, and you HAVE to pay with a card so there’ll be a record of it. Just my $2’s worth.

  2. “Buy One and Get the Second One Free! (Pay only shipping and handling.)”

    I’m reliabily informed that this one is how merchandisers can avoid paying/passing along sales tax on the second item. Still stupid, but at least … rational?
