I Used To At Least Get a Free Packet of Gum...

Post by General Mackevili » Wed Jun 11, 2014 2:24 pm

...when I bought a $10+ refill card for my mobile phone. Not any more. Nada. Zilch. Zip.

Or even a piece of shit lighter.

Have I lost my charm or what?

Do you receive "gifts" when topping up?

Oh shit, now that you mention it, I remember always getting a lighter, had close to a dozen at one point.

Nada for at least the past 8 months. Oh, but I guess that make sense considering I mostly go to the new automated machines to top up now.

My Dad started an Ad Agency with Wrigleys Chewing GUM IN THE '50s. I had free Gum all my life. I hate it.

Surely you could get the camel in a tuktuk and have it brought to you - have you seen the cow?
