Benjamin Franklin once said in a letter to Jean-Baptiste Leroy that “nothing in this world can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”
However, in 1789 there were no Planet Fitness’, 24 hour fitness or Retro gyms. Benjamin enjoyed his booze and ladies but he was not known to be vigorous in his physical exercise.
225 years later if Franklin was alive he would have to amend his statement to, “nothing in this world can be said to be certain, except death, taxes and your damn gym membership.”
Have any of you ever tried to cancel your gym membership? Were you successful or is your credit card still getting hit as you read this? The ugly and vicious truth is that you can get divorced or enlist in the military much easier than canceling your membership.
Why is it so hard to cancel your membership?
One word: lawyers.
