My friend's dad, a hypertensive, felt bad one day. There happened to come a vehicle to surply free physical exam downstairs, so he asked for a exam of blood pressure.The doctor told him all is normal. But in the evening, his dad was sent into hospital because of very high blood pressure which almost deprived his life. My friend felt mad at the former examination, but he said nothing about it because it was free of charge. Have you come across this kind of things? Are all free things or services terrible like this?

not all free stuff are worthless, but in reality most of them are not really what you expect, well who are we to complain if it's free?

I had my car serviced not too long ago because I thought there was something wrong with my car. The brakes did not feel right and the transmission sounded strange so I took it to a shop to have it looked at. When they called me to come over, they showwed me there was nothing wrong with the brakes or the transmission but they did put more transmission fluid in the car. When they got done, they did not charge me for the fluid or for looking at the car. I was happy with the service and have not had any problems with my car since then.
