Etiquette of free stuff.

Chris from Prebbleton

When somebody offers you something for free and you want the item them the obligation is on YOU to collect it as soon as possible. DO NOT make appointments to collect and then not bother to turn up, or be hours late, because the giver has probably then made provision to be home at that time. And don't make times weeks out to collect.

You are not doing the giver a service by offering to take something, rather he is going out of his way to GIVE you something (plus helping the environment a little by recycling).

The giver also has a life and doesn't want to be p....d around after going out of his/her way to actually give you something for free. It is grossly bad manners and selfish to stuff the giver around. This is so prevalent that I will think twice next time about giving something away and rather chuck it in the bin.
I note that when somebody is buying something they are more likely to front up at agreed times. Just because it is free does not mean you now have no obligations. Now I understand that s..t happens and sometimes you cannot make it and in this case you need to let the giver know at your earliest convenience.

Discover a new wine at New World

New World Ilam

"Kia ora – Jeremy Baars from New World Ilam here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Stoneleigh’s Latitude Marlborough Chardonnay. It’s an excellent example of the Chardonnay style that customers are loving: rich, creamy and buttery, and full of stone fruit flavours. It goes well with dishes that have rich sauces like pasta or seafood and chicken. If Chardonnay isn’t your type, then give Lindauer Rosé a go – it’s a bottle of celebration and fun that’s good quality and at a great price.”

Come into your local New World and explore the Top 50 Gold-medal winning wines – we have winners for every budget. Plus join us for complimentary wine sampling and try before you buy.
