|A "lunch", presumably one that has been paid for.|
There’s a saying in economics that “There’s no such thing as a free lunch”. The saying began in the early 20th century where bars that would advertise a free lunch to lure customers in so they would buy drinks. The idea is that even if a meal is technically free, there still is some kind of price. For instance if an annoying friend invites you out to lunch and pays for it, that’s technically a free lunch, but you had to sit through them talking the whole time about their stupid nonsense so at the end of the day it’s like you really did pay for the meal.
"There's no such thing as a free lunch" is a dumbass saying because of homeless people. If there’s no such thing as a free lunch then how the hell do these people survive? Are they only eating breakfast and dinner? There have to be a few free lunches in there somewhere. So there is such a thing as a free lunch, but you can only have one if you’re homeless which is fine because in that case you actually need one. If you’re not homeless, pay for your damn lunch. Is that so difficult? Case closed.
