One day, several months back, I was shopping for a new mattress. I discovered that I could buy an optional feature that would elevate the head of my mattress to various levels, elevate the foot of my mattress to different levels, and provide a massage of sorts. I desperately wanted this package, until I discovered that this feature would cost an additional thousand dollars.
So I sat and mused to myself, wondering how badly I really wanted it. I decided that the reason I wanted it so badly was because of the foot elevating capabilities. Then I thought to myself, “Why not just stick a pillow under your feet?” I got two free pillows with my mattress, so I use one under my head and one under my feet.
And that, my friends, is how I essentially got a thousand dollar bonus feature for free.
Any similar stories from the peanut gallery?
