Everyone is sure to have different opinions on what counts as the ultimate wedding gift. Sometimes, couples can’t agree on the type of gifts they want, which can lead to unnecessary arguments leading up to the wedding. Afterward, newlyweds often end up with a giant pile of homewares they don’t need or want, which they then have to deal with returning or exchanging later, leading to more clutter or more hassle. If only there was a guaranteed way to make wedding gifts a surefire hit for everyone involved.
Fortunately, Domino’s Pizza has stepped in with a surprisingly practical solution for couples who have their priorities in order: a pizza wedding registry! Now, pizza-loving couples can celebrate both their love for each other and their favorite food by registering to receive cheesy wedding treats.
This idea may have you wondering, why didn’t anyone think of this before? Apparently, it was Domino’s loyal customers that inspired this delicious idea. Kate Trumbull, Domino’s digital marketing director, explains: “Our customers constantly tell and show us on social media how pizza plays a role in their wedding, whether it’s for the bridal party, a late-night treat for the reception and other day-of experiences.”
And it’s true: Domino’s has managed to create a pizza “experience” for every stage of the wedding and beyond. Couples can create the pizza party wishlist of their dreams to feed them before, during, and after their wedding, choosing from options like the “2 a.m Bachelor Party Feast” for the pre-wedding festivities, or “An Excuse Not to Cook” for exhausted newlyweds catching up on thank you card writing. The $15 “Married by Chill” pizza could be defined as the quintessential millennial wedding feast, described as “#tbt to when we got married, #nbd just like the best day of our lives.”
Couples can share these delish wish lists with friends and family on social media, or add items to their existing wedding registry with a URL. Gifts are then delivered to the couple via email as Domino’s eGift cards, and the site even offers printable certificates for tucking into wedding cards. Let the love fest begin!
Rendering help to others is a matter of choice. Requesting help is a matter of choice. However, the type or level of help is not for the beggar to choose. But, social media is full of cases of people asking for help and favors and still choosing how that help would be rendered. Let’s see some funny examples that people have shared on social media.
The Lying Beggar
Everyone loves a good story; much more, a captivating one. However, there is a thin line between captivating and ridiculous.
This beggar’s story is more of the latter than the former. Who wouldn’t want to believe a simple picture could cure a deaf person of two years? But, using that to ask for free tickets might not be the best way to get one. This choosing beggar obviously doesn’t know that.
Babysitter for Free
This person is another type of choosing beggar that one finds in society today. Looking for someone that would watch over their kids while they go off to have fun or work for money. However, they want the person to do so for free.
The beggar is about to give up on the quest of finding a free babysitter. That is sad. Another case of people wanting others to do something for them for free. Maybe one day this beggar would find one.
$20 or More
The sheer audacity to choose the least amount. This particular beggar is just one of a kind. When a beggar is dressed from head to toe like this, it is not surprising to find them choosing the amount of money that is acceptable or not.
One would think this is a business and that the helper is getting something from helping the beggar. He had the time to put it in writing so that one doesn’t bother wasting his time. Sharp guy.
Beggar With Unending Excuses
There has to be a limit to asking for favors. People don’t know this and they act like others are obligated to render the help no matter how ridiculous it sounds. A beggar uses one excuse after the other to bring down the price of an item from $155 to $50.
One would expect the beggar to cash in on this luck. But when they choose to keep at it, it really makes the blood boil. Surely, there is another excuse coming up if the $41 offer was accepted.
Balancing the Workload
Once in a while, one is privileged to meet some people that act like it is others’ sacred duty to help them out with their personal problems or task. Sometimes, they tie in a “noble cause” to the request in hope that would make one consider going beyond what is necessary.
Also, what is common to choosing beggars? They insult others when their “begging” demands are not met. Telling someone to balance their workload after literally trying to add to that workload.
Korean BBQ or Not
Dating sites are a great place to meet new people and socialize. However, once in a while, one gets to meet some types of beggars in disguise. That’s ok to some and they don’t mind the fact that the person is just trying to get a free meal.
But, sometimes, the beggar becomes a chooser of some sort. This makes the whole begging irritating. Begging for a free meal, and choosing what is brought with someone else’s money just makes the blood boils. Might work, most likely won’t though.
Wrong Negotiation Skill
Negotiation is a skill that is needed in daily business transactions. Sometimes, negotiation involves added incentives to help both soften their stance and consider the other person.
However, the wrong negotiation skill could seem like blackmail. After getting a reduced price, this buyer wanted a lower price, which is not bad. Using kids and holidays to emotionally trap the seller is not the best. This particular beggar is doing more choosing, a little bit of blackmailing is involved here. One can’t fault the reply though.
The Tattoo Fee
There are many options to choose from when in need of professional services. when one selects a particular service provider, they should be ready to pay for the cost of services.
Due to financial constraints, sometimes, one might need to be a beggar, but do not have the power to choose if the request is met or not. Also, comparison with others is not the best approach. One might as well choose the other service provider. Here is a beggar choosing a particular tattoo artist, and also choosing the amount to be paid for the services.
The Tip Beggars
When services are rendered to satisfaction, full and complete payment for such services is all the gratitude one needs to show. However, to show their joyous satisfaction in how the services were rendered, some customers often give tips to workers of the company.
It has become common in today’s society that sometimes people forget no one is obligated to give a tip. Sometimes, the blood boils when this appreciation is met with scorn. Ever give a tip and get the feeling that this particular beggar is choosing how big the tip should be? Here is one example.
Trade by a Beggar
If one were to read only the first part of that conversation, would that person have guessed the other item that was being traded? That is highly doubtful. The buyer is choosing what to trade with a car and also choosing the venue of payment.
The annoying part is that the trade is a car for a riding mower. It might sound hilarious to some, but the seller is probably hoping they would be addressed by serious buyers. This beggar is choosing a ridiculous mode of payment and location. Certainly, the car owner’s blood would be boiling after this conversation.
Choosing What Should Be Free
This picture describes accurately the two different types of beggars we have in society. Those that realize that they are beggars and they act accordingly. The second group is those that think they have a choice though they are beggars.
If ale is made free, then one can choose to enjoy those services or not. However, dictating which beer should be free is a case of a choosing beggar. No doubt the manager of this place would have boiling blood after the incident.
Choosing The Help
It is not wrong to ask for help from others, but choosing the level of help is not exactly good. Also, when begging for favors, one is expected to give the reason why the help should be rendered.
However, when begging sounds like a command or an obligation, they are often met with silence, rejection, or worse, perfect and sarcastic response. The particular beggar might need to get a job in order to appreciate the value of money. The other guy came up with the perfect solution as the response.
Free Arm Chair
Knowing when not to push one’s luck any further is a great skill that only few possess. Sometimes, beggars believe that they can go on and keep demanding more in a negotiation.
A negotiation where they are contributing absolutely nothing. This particular beggar is asking for more after getting something for free. What negotiation skills does the beggar employ? Comparison with others. It doesn’t end well. A beggar asking for more to make it worth a while. One’s blood would boil over this, no doubt.
The Free Websites
It takes a lot of effort, learning, and practicing to become an expert at some services. One of such is web designing, and most customers do not appreciate this. This particular customer has changed from a beggar to a dictator.
From saying the designer is about to lose your “business” to saying the business should be “free.” Makes one wonder what exactly the designer is about to lose — time that would be spent on a profitable venture? That doesn’t seem like a loss. Demanding that one should render their services for free? Not the best.
Need for Free?
When a person needs an item, they are usually prepared to pay whatever is necessary to get the said item. However, one might need to be a beggar and ask if the item is available for free. If one is lucky, the item could be given for free.
What really gets annoying is when a beggar starts asking for something and is still choosing what should be added. Wanting a gaming gadget that is hundred of dollars for free might be ok to some. But, demanding that the gaming console be equipped with the most expensive games? Well, that’s reaching.
Who Needs a Violin?
Some beggars can really take the act of choosing to another level. One would have to ask if they feel entitled to the help they receive. Also, sometimes, these beggars use kids as a bargaining chip to get more than they deserve.
Note that they do not actually deserve anything, they are begging for the favor. Here is a beggar still asking for a violin for her daughter after getting one for free. Beggars that are do not appreciate the help received are the worst. Annoying type of choosing beggars.
Back to Full Price
During price negotiations, it is best to state one’s price and ask if it is acceptable by the buyer. But when the price is stated, and it is accepted, continued bargaining is just a way to make one’s blood boil over.
Fine, some believe that this is the way to get the best deal. However, it is a case of a beggar choosing what is accepted or not. It does not lead to favorable results most of the time. An example is given here. After the awful negotiation, the seller is asking for the original price.
Business transactions with friends are always encouraged. Why? It helps both sides, the customer and the provider. It also strengthens the bond of friendship. But having a choosing beggar as a friend removes all that benefit.
They tend to choose whether or not one gets paid for services rendered to them. This beggar is taking the business somewhere else because the friend refused to work for free. Hope they render the services for free over there.
Finding somewhere that would help out with exactly what someone needs can be rare. It takes days of searching and begging. When one finally finds one that genuinely wants to help, choosing is not really the next thing to do.
Try appreciation, it works. This particular case is that of one that needs a sofa for kids during Christmas (always using the kids). Upon finding one that is ready to help, the beggar is choosing which color. Makes the blood boils, honestly.
Angry iPhone User
Pricing an item of $200 down to $30 would surely warrant questions like “seriously?”. While this is a ridiculous type of begging, one could argue that the buyer has done nothing wrong by the book.
When the price is not accepted, cursing is not a way to go about it. A beggar chooses the item and the price together. That’s a rare one. Looks like the person that is undeserving of iPhones is the one without any.
Juice Above All
It’s the holiday season and many organizations make it a time to give gifts. This deed of kindness often exposes some different types of beggars. The choosing beggars’ type.
When someone receives food items including turkey, potatoes, carrots, a bag of apples, and some others, it is difficult to imagine that the first complaint would be about the lack of juice. The beggar even mentioned being grateful, but then goes ahead to show just how grateful. Choosing the type of foods that would be given for free? An annoying choosing beggars.
The Smart Student
Smartness in team projects is often expressed in terms of contribution. Sometimes, not exactly. This student wants good grades, but doesn’t want to put in any effort.
That’s not all, it gets interesting. The student decides to join multiple groups. Hoping that even as a beggar begging for good grades, the option of choice would still be available. One can tell how angry it made the other members judging by their reaction. Begging to be included in group work and still choosing the grade.
The Kid’s Drone
Here is another type of beggar. After negotiating that a drone is sold at a low price that doesn’t sit well with the seller, the buyer uses an emotional chip. Saying the item is being brought for a kid is not going to automatically make it cheaper.
Also, when the price is not accepted and the emotional angle does not work, cursing is not the next issue. It really makes one angry. These types of beggars really think they can choose the type of help one renders.
The Highest Honor
Wanting to have something tagged “Awesome” for free is laughable at best. However, when the “it’s an honor” phrase is added to the mix, that’s a whole new level of begging.
This type of choosing beggar is the proud one. It takes a level of creativity to design just any logo. Awesome logo? More creativity is needed. To request that such services are rendered for free really makes the blood boil. Too much pride for a nameless brand. Better luck next time.
After a Long Time
Here is another kind of beggar with much entitlement. Despite not contacting a friend, this beggar is asking for a favor and at the same time, choosing how the help is to rendered.
These kinds of ”friends” are the type to get one upset for nothing. They expect that one is obligated to help and, in this case, for free. Like most choosing beggars, when the help is not rendered, blackmail is the next card to play. The entitled choosing beggar.
The Contract Wedding Invitation
Weddings are such joyful occasions for all parties involved; bride, groom, and invited well-wishers. Most couples send out invitations in the hope that friends and family would grace the occasion with their presence.
They are also grateful when they see many people respond to the invitation. However, here we find a wedding beggar choosing what guests must bring to their wedding party and other occasions attached to it. Well, one might just have to attend another wedding or relax at home for the day.
Beggars Like to Fly
The initial part of this story was about someone needing cash in order to go visit a sick parent. This particular beggar put up the price and asked for help from others.
Then someone came up with a solution by providing a cheaper traveling option. Then that happened! One would think the sick parent was more important than a few selfies on a plane. The next level of choosing after this would be asking the airways for a free first-class ticket.
A Miracle Indeed
To make ends meet and to enjoy all the good that life has to offer, one needs to work. However, getting a job can be as elusive as the enjoyment that comes after.
When some people get the opportunity to secure a job especially when they don’t have any, they usually jump at the idea, or at least consider the terms. But here we have a different type of choosing beggar. They want help in paying for bills, but they don’t want to job being offered for free. Guess there are still things to sell.
People often feel the need to negotiate and bring down the price of any good they want to get. At times this happens when the item is being sold for a very cheap price. In fact, it is not uncommon to see people negotiating for more in a free trade or deal.
This act can be really annoying and it makes one’s blood boil. Even after seeing that small price, the buyer still felt that there was a need to negotiate the price. Another type of choosing beggar.
The Anonymous Model
Some beggars often use different tricks to beg for favors. The funny part is that some have a way of sounding like one is doing them a favor when services are rendered.
This anonymous model wants to do social posts for a restaurant and still decides on the type and mode of payment. Turns out the club is quite big and they would be doing the model a favor. But with the annoying way the beggar employed, favors would not be happening any time soon.
Easy Bass Guitar
Here is another example of the “come and work for free” kind of choosing beggar. After asking that a bass guitar write some bass line, he then said they would be doing it for free.
When the deal (if one can call that a deal) was rejected, the next step was to ridicule the guitarist in the funniest way ever. If it was easy, then the singer would not be finding someone to do it. A beggar chooses how the help is rendered. That’s common.
The Picky Job Beggar
People at times don’t know the value of help they receive, which could be because it is coming for free or perhaps easy. Finding a job that ticks all the boxes is the rarest thing.
If it is paying, it’s far from home. If it is near one’s place, the hours are tiring. However, you find some type of choosing beggars that find a job that ticks their boxes, but they still want to choose between jobs. One might end up losing on both sides.
Homeless and Choosing
It is not every day you meet a choosing beggar, it’s even rarer to find one that is a literal choosing beggar. When a homeless guy asks for money, one might choose to help or not.
However, this particular homeless guy finds someone who was willing to help, but decides to choose how they help. Guess the phrase “beggars are not choosers” does not appear in some people’s books.
Laptop for Free
Some negotiations would leave one annoyed at the level of entitlement displayed. After asking for a particular price that was not accepted, this buyer requested that the product be given out for free.
He even decided to drop location in response to a sarcastic question. One would think that this buyer really thought he was going to get the item for free. Another special type of choosing beggar. Laptop for free anyone?
Daddy’s Help Is Free
When one requests services, they often expect that the services are rendered to their satisfaction. However, what is interesting is the fact that some are not willing to pay for that said service.
Well, this beggar is requesting that the service be rendered at a cheap rate. When the offer was rejected, the beggar claimed that the dad would do it for free. What happened to that option initially? The next thing was to call the service provider cheap. Who is cheap?
Time Wasting Beggar
When beggars have the choosing attitude, they become really annoying. Sometimes, they request for help and favors from others and demand that it is met.
The requests are mostly ridiculous and they are hilarious at times. One example is this guy hoping to buy a product of $400 at a price of $150. When the request was not met, next was to accuse the seller of buying wasting time. Who wasted whose time? One is left to wonder.
Better but Free
It takes a lot of time and effort to do something good and render worthwhile services. The reward for this is payment for those services. But one would often find some kind of beggar that chooses one’s services and still demands that they render the said services for free.
The worst part is when they start comparing the services to others. This person claims they have an editor that works for free, but they want something better. Ironically, they are not willing to pay.
Online Choosing Beggar
One avenue to ask for help online is the use of GoFundMe. People make requests and state why they need help. If the reason is deemed worthy, other social media users contribute the little they can.
Online beggars often appreciate the little help they can get. However, one often finds a choosing beggar that begs and still demands that their request be chosen ahead of many others. Surely, there are more important reasons for help than that of someone going on a show to see a celebrity.
The Awkward Beggars
This beggar hacked a particular gaming account and had it for more than a year. When the owner finally got back the account, here is the hacker asking for the owner’s password.
No doubt, this would have been after several attempts to hack the account once again. If the fact that the hacking was not enough reason to be angry, the audacity to ask for a password would surely make one’s blood boil. This beggar knows the request is awkward and still chooses to ask.
Parents Pay for All
Services that involve art like drawing are some of the most appreciated in the world. However, you find some people that want to enjoy the exquisite feeling it brings for free.
According to this choosing beggar, all artists live with their parents. This automatically means that they have no money. Not just that, they have all the time in the world to keep drawing for strangers for free. Wonder why nobody wants to draw for free? Because it takes time and effort.
Dogs Aren’t Free
There are times that pinching pennies is a good idea. However, the cost of owning a dog isn’t all in the upfront cost of adoption fees.
As such, it’s important to consider if you have a dog if you can afford the cost of something like an emergency vet visit were to come up. Not to mention, purebred dogs, especially huskies, don’t often come for cheap — much less for free.
There are some jobs that seem really promising — that is, until you look at the pay. After all, who wants to work really hard for next to nothing? This listing offers no pay but that’s only the beginning.
If you read further into the job posting, you’ll notice expenses start to add up fast. Not only are you working for free but you’ll have to provide your own equipment and have to travel as they need.
Whose Problem Is That?
When someone is selling something, they probably aren’t just beholden to whoever asks them first. There are other potential customers out there. That’s why exchanges like this just don’t make sense.
Why would you try to haggle with someone on the basis that the item they’re selling you won’t fit into your car? We can’t blame this person for simply not responding to the final offer this choosing beggar laid down.
Okay, What About Compensation?
There are some jobs around your house that you just need some extra help with. You just might not know how to do something or have the time to do it.
If you hire someone to complete these tasks, though, they probably want to earn something of value for their time. In most cases, this means money as compensation but this particular person decided that an aromatherapy session would be enough. We would tend to disagree.
You Can’t Be Serious
As we’ve noted already, not everything can be bartered for. At the very least, you should barter with something of value since you’re paying someone for their time and effort.
On top of that, the role they want to be filled isn’t a small one either. That’s a lot of responsibilities to take on for just the promise of some unsold Mary Kay products. We wonder if they found anyone to help out in the end.
It’s Just Community Service
There are plenty of people who want to devote some of their free time to community service. Why not give back to the world around you when you can? That being said, not everything that someone does for free is community service.
We’re not sure that this person is asking for community service so much as they need help clearing out their parents’ barn for them. It just seems off to bill this as a service to the community.
What a Deal!
If you want to pick up items you want or need for cheap, shopping with your neighbors is a good idea. Facebook Marketplace is a popular option for this. On the other hand, make sure you carefully consider what you’re buying.
However, pictures of the product can help out a lot. This is actually a great example because the picture is the only thing that lets anyone know that this TV is actually in fairly poor condition.
One Way to Celebrate
It’s not uncommon to see a newly married couple celebrating publicly. It’s long been a tradition to mark your car to tell everyone you’re getting married. This couple may have taken things a step further than expected, however.
Not only did they say that they were getting married but offered other drivers a chance to send them money as congratulations. They even offered two different payment methods to choose from!
Sometimes, you’re in a bind and you need something affordable. Still, that often means putting utility over luxury, at least for the moment. For instance, if you need a new fridge for free, you might have limited options.
You’ll definitely have trouble finding a request as specific as this one without having to pay a cent. It seems like no one in the comments was willing to help out either from the looks of it.
A Lot to Ask
Finding child care can be hard. Yet, that doesn’t mean that someone who watches children shouldn’t be compensated for their work properly at all.
As for this person, it’s even worse because they note that they would pay more for daycare but aren’t willing to pay that for private childcare. One Redditor even did the math on the situation to realize they were offering a whopping $4 an hour for consistent childcare.
That’s Not How Negotiating Works
If you’re negotiating a price, there are some tips that can help you out. For instance, starting low can help you negotiate a reasonable price. Still, negotiating means listening and responding to the other person.
That’s not exactly what happened here. That or they didn’t quite get how negotiations tend to work. Either way, it doesn’t seem like they stuck the landing on this deal from the response they were considering here.
Fool Me Once…
It feels good to do something nice for someone. That’s why it’s so unfortunate that some people are willing to take advantage of that kindness. This artist was kind enough to offer this person a free commission.
The only problem was that they didn’t know when to leave well enough alone. Instead, they decided that they were entitled to the same treatment in the future — as if it doesn’t take up time, effort, and materials from the artist.
They Want More
Starbucks was trying to offer something nice when they did this promotion. They were offering any veteran that stopped by the shop a free coffee for them and their spouses. Still, that wasn’t enough for some customers.
The biggest offender here might actually be the commenter at the bottom. They argued that the free coffee wasn’t enough — there should be more options as well. Technically, they didn’t have to offer anything free at all, much less a wider menu for free.
Not Good Enough
A first date is all about getting to know one another to see if you’re compatible at all. It shouldn’t be about how expensive a first date can be.
This person would likely disagree with that sentiment. They were disappointed to learn that people in their area preferred free first dates. We can’t blame them for that — why invest a lot of money in a first date when you don’t have to?
When it comes to free items, the concept is usually first-come-first-serve. At the end of the day, what’s the point of waiting when it isn’t a situation where you might get a better offer?
So, it makes sense that this person wouldn’t hold onto an item until someone else could come to get what was ready to be picked up earlier. Conversely, we’re not so sure that the person interested in the item was really in a place to report them for their decision.
Sure, That’ll Happen
There are some things that you can easily find when you ask online. For instance, if you need a recipe or a music recommendation, it can help you out quite a bit. As for this person’s request, we aren’t quite so sure that it’ll work out.
For one, it doesn’t seem like the best way to access either Elon Musk’s or Jeff Bezos’ personal email. Even further, we’re not quite sure they would do something like this for free.
Christmas is a great time to give gifts to your loved ones. Of course, it’s also a great time to ask for gifts from your loved ones as well.
That concept doesn’t quite mean asking everyone on your social media page to chip on for your Christmas present. Interestingly enough, the amount they requested covers more than the shoes themselves too — leaving room for shipping costs. In the end, they’d be completely free to the owner.
It’s Kind of Clever
This is a sad story but one that we wouldn’t have seen coming either. It’s practically clever if you set aside the morals of such a situation. This person thought that they’d found a legitimate buyer for a truck.
As it turned out, they only managed to find someone who somehow needed to get their hands on a truck for a few hours. As we said, it’s almost clever if you aren’t worried about this seller’s time.
A Change in Tone
If it seems like you’re missing something here, you really aren’t. Prior to this exchange, these two had just been haggling back and forth on the price. The potential buyer was deadset on not going above $260 but the seller wouldn’t budge any lower.
While this is higher than the listed price, the seller mentioned that they had offers of $300 but still offered to hold the item for the buyer to come get it at $275. That was until the person got a little needlessly aggressive.
Work for No Pay
Most of the time, people don’t work just for the fun of it. More often than not, they want the money that comes with a job, not just the experience of having a job. That’s why this person was probably rightfully miffed when their pay was pulled out from under them.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, they didn’t just let this musician go but asked them to continue to play and host events in the hopes that the venue would make enough to pay them.
Not Quite Minimum Wage
As we mentioned before, there are a number of challenges to finding childcare when you’re working. That doesn’t mean that someone should do it out of their own pocket when they need to make a living too.
This parent wanted to find a babysitter that would work daily for them. However, they weren’t willing to pay very much, especially considering that the babysitter would be responsible for taking care of a very young child. At least they were willing to pay for the course they wanted the professional to take.
That’s Nowhere Near Enough
When you want to save money on a service, there are a few rules. For one, cut out unnecessary parts and secondly, you should expect fewer services.
It’s almost unbelievable that someone would want someone to clean their home so thoroughly for such a low price. To make matters even worse, they expect a lot of the person applying to. If you do this professionally, wouldn’t you look for a client with better rates?
What a Steal!
It’s one thing to decide that something is mutually beneficial to two parties. It’s another thing to pretend that you’re doing someone a favor.
When this person posted this enticing offer, they wrote it as if they were offering a great, free item. In reality, it seems like they just didn’t want to rake their own leaves. We wonder if anyone ended up stopping by for some free leaves.
Breaking it Down
There are some jobs that pay little but it’s still enough that you’ll consider it. Other times, the rate that a job offers is too ridiculous to entertain.
This person was looking for childcare and, advertised as $125 a week, doesn’t seem that bad. That is until you see the hours that they want someone to work. One commenter broke it down publicly so everyone knew this was only about $0.52 per hour worked!
Only the Essentials
Moving is hard and sometimes you need a little help to get your new place furnished. It’s best to start with the essentials and work your way up from there. This person started out by asking for the essentials.
However, the longer you keep reading, the less reasonable this list seems to get. By the end, these essential pieces of furniture are starting to look more and more like items that this person would like to own, like a PlayStation 4.
Begging for Subscribers
It can be hard to get your start on social media. If you want a successful YouTube channel, how do you get people to start following you?
One, often unsuccessful method that people use is comments like this one. However, it looks like it worked just about as well as usual. In other words, they may have gained a few people from this comment but it looks like they fell short of their goal.
Not How it Works
It’s not uncommon for a subscription service to offer a free trial or a deal. Sometimes, you might even find a sale on this charge to give you a discount on that.
In this tweet, Xbox was announcing that Game Pass featured PC games and they were offering a deal. Once again, they technically could have charged full price for the service but knocked it down to a dollar for the first three months. Not cheap enough for this person’s taste, apparently.
You Have to Pay?
There are some positions that are hard to fill. For instance, a live-in handyman is much harder to find than someone who will just do a job and leave.
It seems like, in reality, this person was actually looking for a roommate that would help out more than usual around the house and act more like an employee than a roommate. Even if this was a job, why would you take a job that costs you money rather than getting paid for it?
When you want to haggle a price with someone, it’s best to open with something other than a dollar amount. Yet, that isn’t the only problem here.
The other problem is that they started their search at too low a price. This person is selling an iPhone, after all, not something they probably purchased at a low price. So, they had to turn this potential buyer down when they could just sell the item at full cost.
There’s Always More Customers
Before you hit send on a rude message to someone you want to buy something from, think twice. Do you think they’ll want to work with someone who started out aggressive? This person argued that they wouldn’t buy the truck they were selling for that price.
The owner said that was fine but they wouldn’t sell it which, honestly, is a fair enough answer. The aggressive response probably only solidified that they made the right decision.
Totally Free Ride
When asking for favors, at times, one has to offer something in return in order to make it pleasant for both parties. This person’s sense of entitlement is quite annoying.
After begging for a ride downtown, the beggar chooses the pickup time and also demanded that they be brought back at a specific time. To find someone willing to help with all those specifications is truly rare. After finding one, this beggar decides to reject the offer of paying for paying. One would argue that this is the least the beggar can do.
Chasing Free Canvas
These are the type of beggars that wants other people to work and still claim they could have done it themselves. The next question is “why not do it yourself then?”
This particular beggar is requesting that a particular canvas be given out for free. something that is clearly the source of income of the designer. Adding that it could be done easily would surely make the designer angry. The best approach in these scenarios is a “no response” type of response.
No Commission Tattoos
Here is a typical example of beggars that choose the type of services rendered. Then they go ahead to insult the service provider if their begging choices are not accepted.
This beggar asks that a person draw their next tattoo for free, and when the offer was rejected, they decided all sorts. Guess this information was not available when the request was made initially. Choosing beggars with insults; this type is definitely common.
Free Delivery Too
Staying away from people that would make one’s blood boil and get one angry is a skill that needs to be acquired. This is because, once in a while, one meets some kind of beggar and they are straight-up annoying.
Dude wants a free game, and still wants it delivered to his doorstep. No doubt with a complimentary “thanks for accepting my free game” note attached to it. Picking up a free game is a problem for this particular beggar. The lazy choosing beggar.
Hypocrisy of Choosing
Sometimes, beggars that choose often do so in the most hypocritical way possible. This here shows a multi-billion-dollar company asking a writer to write an article for free.
The interesting part is that the article was based on a topic that addresses the issue of unpaid work. It is not new to hear of companies employing or requesting services for free. This sometimes makes one furious. It’s funny how they requested services and still chose the mode of payment or in this case, the lack of payment.
