Something for Nothing

It seems a lot of folks want something for nothing. After a recent garden lecture, I offered my booklet for sale, cheap! No one bought one. But I was duped into giving one away.

While I was packing all my stuff, I asked folks one last time if they wanted a copy of my book, I heard a faint “yes, I want one.” So, I autographed and signed the book, but when I asked for the money, she held her palm up in the “high five” position, and that was what she paid. What could I do? Nothing, I had already wrote her name on it, To:  and I wasn’t about to beg her for the money in front of everyone there. It’s not that I’m bothered by not selling any books, it’s the fact that some folks are so stingy that they always want something for nothing.

  1. Well, I don’t want somethin’ for nuthin’ so I ordered your book x 4 from Amazon just now. I think you promised to send me a copy a while back, but then we moved so maybe it was lost in the shuffle. Anyway, I promise to review it on the blog when I get my order in the mail. I do expect a free autograph one of these days when you get the chance to visit us here in fire-ant heaven.

    1. You ordered 4 copies?? Wow! And I’m not sure if I can survive more than one fire ant sting! If I come for a visit, y’all will have to carry me everywhere, I ain’t about to walk around in fire ant heaven! :O
