Freebies or Annoyances?
During my daily commute, I get on the subway at Pentagon City. But to get there, I have to use escalators to get down to the station. And each morning, representatives of two free publications stand right there in such a way as to practically block your path unless you take their free handouts.
I don’t mind people offering the paper, even though you can just as easily take it from one of the free-standing stacks like any other free paper. What I do mind is they blocking our path to the escalator just to give away a paper 80% of us throw away once we’re at the bottom of the escalator.
