I was walking to the post office today to pick up a registered letter that came while I was away up north and as I was walking down the street, there was a TV sitting on the side of the road with a piece of paper attached to it saying “FREE” So I went to the door and saw that they were installing a new big screen TV. I asked if there were any problems with the TV to which he answered “Absolutely nothing. We just bought the new big screen TV and don’t need it anymore.” I took it home, placed it in a spare room where we had been talking about getting a small TV for and it works perfectly.
I have mixed feeling about getting it. I’m not a big TV fan so don’t really think we need another TV in the house, but we probably would have gotten one at some point because my wife wanted it. In that sense, it is nicer than what we would have gotten and it didn’t cost a penny.
