Free isn't always good

Monday, October 19th, 2009

Free isn’t always good. During a bible class about a month back, our pastor handed out some complimentary Bible tabs. Ever the skinflint, I scooped up a set and spent hours carefully applying them to my favourite church/daily devotions NLT Bible – and almost immediately regretted it.

Tabs obscuring tabs, tabs tearing pages (of Lamentations appropriately enough), tabs generally making life more difficult – all of which are pretty much the antithesis of their stated purpose. Early Saturday morning, with a fortifying coffee in one hand and the kitchen scissors in the other, I removed them and got the Bible I’d missed.

Lesson learned.
