"No Strings Attached"

Posted by Bruce Kahl on October 10, 2000

While vacationing recently in the Orlando area I was offered deeply discounted theme park tickets. I inquired and was informed that I needed to attend a "breakfast" with a reprentative of a time-share scheme. She assured me I was under no obligation to buy anything and that the tickets had "no strings attached".
I have an understanding of "pulling strings" to get something done for somebody but any clues to these strings?
I thank you in advance,
