Story from the Road: The Vulture

I do a lot of fairs. Graduate Fairs. Career Fairs. Job Fairs. Combos of all three. You start to see certain figures that come to these fairs. My favorite, and at times least favorite, is the Freebie Vulture.

The Freebie Vulture is the man or woman who walks through the fair and takes every freebie they can. It might be a squishy car from Enterprise. It might be a Frisbee from Waffle House. It might be chap-stick. ANYTHING. They will take it. I don't do give-aways so they usually ask me if they can have one of my pens. The one thing they DON'T take is your materials. They do not care who you are, what you are their for. They unabashedly are there for the free stuff.
