The minimum entry for this contest is $2 USD. As soon as the word free comes up, everyone and their mother hops on the wagon to try and win something.
I'm gonna put this into perspective for ya.
One can find 2 dollars in their couch. One can also find 2 bucks laying around in a city. One can collect $2 by adding up 8 Quarters or 20 Dimes or 40 Nickles or 200 Pennies (which are worthless btw).
You probably spend 2 bucks like its nothing anyway. Here's an example.
You know when you woke up this morning and you felt like shit? So you thought, "Hey, coffee will wake me up and energize me" So you go to your local Starfucks and order the cheapest coffee they have because hey, you're trying to save right?
$1.95 later, you sip into that hot coffee. And realize you've made a huge mistake.
The coffee was too hot so you burnt your tongue. It also tasted like it had been sitting out for a while. Even worse, you finished the whole disgusting cup, and now you have to release the floodgates that is your bowels. Good one. Don't you feel smart?
Later on, after that excuse for a cup of joe, you get hungry. "BUT I'M ON A BUDGET! What can I get for only $2 that will fill me up!?"
This is a McDonald's McChicken. They are $1 each. One is just not enough because it looks like it could feed half a toddler, so you get 2 you fat fuck.
Big mistake. Not only are these things not even real chicken, but it looks like the "lettuce" is wilted, the mayo been in the heat, and to top it off, you're not sure if that a bone or a rat tail that you just bit into. Now your hands are all greasy, your arteries clogged, and your cholesterol skyrocketing. Way to go boss.
How can this day get any worse? Oh yeah, YOU'RE STILL HUNGRY. McDonald's was a bad choice so you decide to go to the local grocery mart for a snack. Mmm Snickers.
Of course you go for the King Size. You're a hungry man. That 2 bucks was wasted as you get chocolate all over your fingers, which is now on your shirt, and you "accidentally" forgot that you we're allergic to peanuts, so your throat starts swelling up. This just keeps getting better and better.
Your day just got worse. You just parked your car here
Guess what the minimum deposit is? YOU GUESSED IT
You only need to be gone a few minutes,so you'll be alright with that 10 minutes of time you just threw into the meter.
What a coincidence. The place you paid 2 bucks for is right in your price range as well!
Good thing everything here is a dollar! That means you can purchase 2, (count em) 2! items and still be within your budget!
...after much deliberation, you decided that everything in this store would break after one use, and is not even worth the dollar that you paid.
"I'LL GO ONLINE" you thought. "THEY HAVE GREAT DEALS ONLINE!"
Absolutely they do. In fact you can get:
....what looks to be herpes tied on a string. I'ts only $1.30 though!
You're feeling a little grossed out at this point, so you look for some soap to wash yourself with.
GOAT MILK SOAP? OLIVE OIL SOAP? FOR ONLY $1.99? Done deal! You wonder to yourself why they would be discontinued.
What other great deals do they have on bricks of soap?
...oh...that looks like moldy, crusty, dirty milk that has been solidified and ready for use on your body. Awesome.
Maybe some jewelry for that special girl you have in mind. Remember, you're on a budget.
Look! you can get this "Antchent" Brooch! It certainly looks ancient! Good thing it's only a buck, you can buy two!
Now for your own pleasure. You should buy something for you, something you collect right? It's time you treated yourself.
Looks like its a little out of your price range for this trading card. Sorry Janokis Jenkins. Better luck next time.
