Price tag for humans

Yesterday we were flying to New Zealand.

And my partner brought me to the lounge. I’m not first time at the airport lounge, but in such a busy lounge for sure. People were everywhere: laying, sitting, standing, walking and all of them were with food and drinks.

VIP and gold members were running around, queuing for food, drinking, waiting for new meals and collecting dirty dishes next to them. Glasses of beer and wine were jammed on their tables. I felt like in a backpacker canteen.

I was thinking why is it no cost freebies make us a bit more thirstier, hungrier, a bit more greedier? Freebies almost can change our tastes for instances? Is it because product with “no value” projects it’s value on us?

That’s seemed to be right. That’s why there is a place in the market even for Louis Vuitton.

Вчера, вылетая из Мельбурна, мы решили скоротать свободное время в вип-зале авиакомпании.

Я ещё ни разу не была в таком зале. От Випов невозможно было скрыться. Мест не было, и повсюду лежали пустые тарелки, и стояли на столах пустые бокалы. Персонал не успевал приносить еду и напитки. Не успевал он и уносить грязные тарелки. И, судя по- всему, не зависимо от статуса и достатка, бесплатные вещи всегда делают нас чуть жаднее и чуть-чуть голоднее. А самое главное, чуть-чуть “свиннее”.
