More important, I thought the food products at food establishments were required to be fresh. What is it about a whopper that makes it taste stale and soggy after reheating it in a microwave oven. Plus, did you know it's cheaper to buy a value meal if you can't stomach a burger by itself, without fries. They don't accept the purchase of a value meal as part of the requirement that's expected to be met by the consumer to receive their free item. So, if you buy a burger at regular price, adding to that a side of fries and a soda costs more than what you would've spent had you gone to Burger King without the coupon.
For every coupon I stumble on, I think I would be better off simply maintaining my bragging rights that such and such company sponsors my creative projects by simply estimating the monetary value of a discount and owning it. I see plenty of bloggers who must be doing the same thing because I would not pay them a scruple, if I owned a franchise, to place an ad on their Web sight to promote whatever I sell.
I'm not good with numbers, so we can forget about that idea. Ooh, even if it means I can get free money to buy stuff. I really like buying junk I don't need. A shiny new telescope? To gaze at the new constellation ophiuchus?
THE SKY IS FALLING, haven't you heard?
