I collected some batteries from a MO yesterday at Peninsular Plaza, and had an experience that got me thinking.
What happened was, I collected the batteries, and was leaving the collection area when this uncle coming back bumped into me. He was holding a set of batteries too, and saw my camera bag.
Uncle: You collected the battery right?
Uncle: Did he say will come with charger?
Me: No.. just the batteries.
Uncle: *gives a face*
Me: It's quite cheap already... if a charger was included as well everyone'll be going for it.
Uncle: At least it comes with casing.
*walks back to escalator with me*
Uncle: Hmph. I think he make some money out of this. If not who will do?
It strikes me as strange how so many people like to find fault with people who organize MOs. I mean, the MO was offered, price was stated, you found the price good and went for it. No one pointed a gun at your head and forced you to join in. Even if people make some money out of it, they're still spending money and time to take a bus, sit and wait for you during collection, so what's the problem?
And the most laughable part was, this uncle expected 4 batteries and a charger for $14.
