I bought a Groupon. Today, after trying to redeem it, I was told "only new customers may use them." What? Are you kidding? Then, after what I'm sure to them seemed a look of hate from myself, they asked me..."didn't you read the fine print?" Fine print? Fine print?!!!
Why is "fine print" so dinky?! Why is fine print always at the bottom of the page?! Why is fine print...at least to me...so hidden?!
As I really began to think about this, I began to think of life, a life I do not want to live and learning how to overcome..............For the past....well, let me just say a while...I feel like I have been living the "fine print" life. I have had a job that needs to be done, I do it, but have this part of me that is small, left at the bottom of the page, and is hidden. I have portrayed a happy, and if you ask me, a job well done life, however, I have had a hidden part that has secretly yelled, "one more time and I will explode!" "Only... only if I can get help!" "Does anyone see that I also have a life and two children that need me?" "I'll say yes... if... you let me get to the doctor for blood pressure medicine."
The "fine print" of me... for the last....a good while...has had an impact on my life. The Groupon that I cannot use is non refundable because I didn't read the "fine print."
People have not read my "fine print." Why? It was not read.. the same reason I did not read the bottom of the Groupon. It has been small, at the bottom, and hidden. It has been unhealthy, heavy burdened, and tiresome. I am through.
So why? I'll tell you why. IF I had read the fine print....I would probably not have done it. I would not have purchased that Groupon. IF people had read MY "fine print" would I have been chosen?
I am no longer going to have "fine print." I want to be BOLD. Put it out there right underneath the title. There is no "fine print" left, because, it weighed the paper down....hearts were hurt... lives were changed.
Let me set this straight....I have learned my lesson....I will always read the "fine print..." I cannot get rid of this trait that companies use...deceitfulness is something that cannot be overcome and will sadly, be forever present....we need to be mindful of this and not ignore it. But....I will not let myself become a victim of this. I do not want myself or more importantly, my children to be living in the "fine print."
