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.

        1. I do love NCIS but don’t love government oversight when the sight is over everything. From knowing friends in the airline business, I think the lack of cash is probably a combination of making it easier for flight attendants and everyone by not having to have cash, make change, etc. and, possibly, not to tempt anyone to steal said cash.

  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?
