No Such Thing As A Free Lunch…

It is true that there is no such thing as a free lunch. If anyone can prove otherwise to me I will indeed pay for a lunch wherever that non-existent person wants to go. This got me to thinking about ways to get the cheapest lunch possible since free is out of the question (try to follow; this all allusions, I’m not talking about food even though I am). I’ve had many a lunch that I did not pay for, my parents have bought me many meals, as have other people. If the cost of the meal is not monetary and also not disclosed, I will safely assume that this is the most expensive lunch on the planet. Even parents who operate under the pretense of love will happily hold a meal over their child’s head when it comes to them wanting something. And those are the people we trust the most. The cost of that meal is then whatever they say it is whenever they want to say it. What about when your boss pays for your lunch, or a significant other. On the same lines, what if a person under you at work or your enemy bought your lunch? What would be the cost of that? (still thinking about food? well stop it!) The cheapest lunch is one you work for yourself. This doesn’t mean you should not let people aide you in earning your own lunch, you don’t have to start your own company to work for the money to start the farm to grow the food… and so on. What it means is that what will get you the furtherest toward a free lunch (by this point I am debating calling it golden egg) is hard work. If you work hard and make sure that you don’t owe anyone anything other than the rights that all humans deserve then your lunch will be as cheap as possible. If you are given an opportunity or a handout, work harder than expected and make sure you earn everything. The kid with the silver spoon in his mouth is a theif and it will catch up to them. (honestly, what could be worse than the person who eats a free lunch with a silver spoon?)
