I think I’ve hit the jackpot. Just about every morning I walk to work from South Yarra Station, a location frequented in the peak hours by the Yuppies who live there and catch trains to the city, hordes of kids heading for a multitude of schools, and people who work nearby, like me.

In the past five days, on no less than three occasions, free samples of various products have been handed out at South Yarra Station. In fact, I didn’t go through there three times last week, so the hit rate was three out of seven; there may have been more that I missed out on.

Let’s hope the advertisers have got together with The Met and decided South Yarra has their perfect demographic. If various companies want to throw their free samples of So Good, various phone company propaganda (but the free pen will be handy) and shower gel in my direction, then so be it. I’ll put up with that.

(PS. Nothing on Monday. I’m disappointed, but hopeful.)
