Last Monday, we went over to Great Harvest to get some free samples for our family night. We each got a slice of their pumpkin chocolate chip bread. Yum.
I always feel so uncomfortable getting free samples (not that that stops me).
1. Rarely does it ever make me decide to buy that product (it's just exciting to get a free snack).
2. It's the worst when there is someone there handing it out. I never know what to say to them afterwards. Do I pretend that I'm mulling it over wether to buy it or not or just make a quick getaway? I think they are on to me from the beginning.
3. What if I don't want their free sample? I'm a picky eater and sometimes I don't really want what they are offering, but I suck it up, eat it anyways, and tell them that it was very good. Yes, yes I do.
4. What are the rules for children? It was awkward when I asked the Great Harvest guy for a free sample for my toddler too.
Someone needs to lay down the etiquette laws of sampling for people who entirely think about things way too much, like me.
In the end, we bought a small jar of raspberry jam too. Entirely because we felt obligated after our free samples. That's how they get'cha!
