What does "free ride" mean usually and what does it mean in here?
"Free ride" is an idiom that usually means to have an advantage over others without having to work for it or having to earn it. In this situation, I believe it means the same thing. She says that she isn't asking to get something for free. Ex: She got a free ride to college. Ex: He really got a free ride in life. Always getting things without having to work for it.
