I'll pass. No, really.

Buying a sandwich and bag of crisps from the Students' Union shop, I was offered a free bottle of water.

"No, thanks." *

"Oh. Do you want to get one out of the chill cabinet?"

"No, thanks."

"Okay, that'll be 2, please."

I paid for my lunch, then, as I was leaving, was called back:

"You've forgotten your water!"

Is it really so difficult to comprehend that 'free' doesn't always mean 'worthwhile'?

*: It's not easy to insert hotlinks into speech, but I am a professional.
