Can you waste something that is free?

I posed this question “Can you waste something that is free?” on facebook and some of my friends responded with replies like – “time” and “cell phone minutes”!

Here is my take – Anything of any consequence already has a price attached leaving things that are either useless or infinitely available. Wasting such things actually defeats the very purpose of wastage – there is no sense of outrage! You could waste time since it is extremely valuable and you can certainly waste cell phone minutes since you paid for them!!
