I Don’t Understand “Free”

In this conversation, a prospective customer of FW is meeting with an FW Rep and doesn’t understand the meaning of “free.”


Customer

Let me get this straight. I go to freewebsite dot com. I put in three pieces of information, and then you create a website for me in less than 48 hours? For free?

FW Rep

Yep. That’s it.

Customer

What does it cost?

FW Rep

It’s free.

Customer

Yeah, but tell me how much in dollars.

FW Rep

It’s zero. Zero dollars.

Customer

Ah. (a knowing look comes across his face) How many zeroes?

FW Rep

Uh ... an infinite number of them, I guess.

Customer

(throws up his hands) I knew it. I knew it. You expect me to pay infinity dollars for a simple website? Not even Zuckerberg times Gates to the power of Buffet could afford that.

FW Rep

Look, you don’t have to multiply any billionaires by any other billionaires to get a website from us. We named the company “freewebsite dot com” because we make basic websites for free.

Customer

How do you make any money?

FW Rep

If you want a tricked out website, that costs a little more. We charge for that.

Customer

Exhibit would pimp my ride for free.

FW Rep

(honestly) Well, we’re not Xzibit. Nobody is. Except Xzibit.

Customer

What if I want to trick it out myself?

FW Rep

That’s free.

Customer

Don’t start with your mind games again.

FW Rep

It’s what we do! We’re freewebsite dot com!

Customer

God, say the name of the company a few more times, why don’t you? I feel like I’m on a kid’s show! Over and over again - we get it.

FW Rep

Sorry, jeez ... I mean, it IS a commercial.

Customer

What? You’re taping me?

FW Rep

Yeah, this is an ad for freeweb-

Customer

DON’T SAY IT!

Freeze!
