While the debate rages as to what Jameis Winston (and other college athletes) got or didn't get for free, it got me to thinking what I have gotten free on a regular basis that ordinary people just don't.
Perhaps the best thing I ever got for free on a regular basis was free gas for almost a year when I worked in Carlsbad, California in the late 80's. I knew the guy who worked the payment station, would pull up and wave to him, pumped the gas and then simply drove off. It was pretty cool not to have to worry about gas prices for a long time.
Just curious to see what others have gotten in their past or present that would qualify as "preferential treatment."
