Why I Use Gillette

I remember two pieces of mail that came when I turned 18. The first was a letter from the government telling me that I could go to jail if I did not register for the draft. The second was a razor from Gillette. On one of my recent birthdays I received another one from them.

I understand full well that Gillette sending the razor was not an act of sheer benevolence and birthday well-wishery. They obviously make their money with the expensive replacement heads. Nonetheless, I have to shave. So I use Gillette because they did for for me than any of the other guys did. I, like most people, love free. Even when it's just a hook.
