SAVE BY BEING CAUTIOUS

You drive by an place specializing in oil changes, tires etc.  A sign outside of it says "Oil change free this month."  That might tempt you to go in, but before doing so drive back past and re-read the sign...all of it.  You may notice when you do that a second line in smaller print says "with any purchase $500 or more."

You go to eat breakfast at a restaurant.  The waitress spills your glass of ice water on the floor at your feet, apologizing profusely.  You think: "Poor waitress.  She feels terrible and thinks I won't tip her.  It could happen to anybody.  I'll give her an extra big tip."  Two weeks later you come back.  The same waitress is there working.  She spills water while serving someone else, apologizing again and again.  A light bulb goes on in your head. 

These are just a few examples to remind you that to save money you have to also be cautious.  Life is kind of like a chess game.  You want to be nice but don't assume everyone else does. 

Studies and common sense have shown most people are normally very honest.  After all, if they weren't then society couldn't exist.  However, other people aren't so nice and some even think of it as fun and a way of teaching others to be more careful when they rip them off.  They'd rip their own family off. 

So have fun, be nice, but also stay alert including and especially when money is involved.  In business friendly honest salespeople come out far ahead just as other good people do in life in general; and most are honest, but just be aware whether customer or seller.
