Unsurprisingly I got a couple of people pissing and moaning about the Doing English Black Friday 0% sale.
One person said he’d been “waiting for today, because I thought you’d have a discount“.
I might be wrong about this…
…but last time I checked there were 10-30 basic Human Rights (depending on how they’re listed by various Legislations) and “a Black Friday Discount” was not among them.
I always find this miss-placed sense of entitlement somewhat… nauseating.
You’d be surprised how often I get emails saying things like, “You’re a teacher – it’s your duty to help me for free.” Ignoring the fact that doing this would (literally) kill me, would they get much benefit out of it?
Because there’s no personal investment.
Incidentally it’s the same kind of people who play the lottery, win, then end up bankrupt just a few years later. Which is true of 70% of lottery winners, by the way. Think about WHY that is.Now I’m going to be completely honest about this…
If you’re waiting for a discount, you should unsubscribe now, because this isn’t the place for you. I realise I’ll make less money by saying that. But it’s better for you. Because you don’t understand the investment your making – and thus are unlikely to ever get much benifit from it.
Now, at this point, my advice to you is to put those bargin-basement superpacks down (you’ll never use them anyway) and get yourself on Two Step Speaking. It’s very expensive, and it’s full price – absotutely no discount.
But my guess is that you’ll use it…
… and you’ll improve your English with it.
