It can get a bit old hearing lectures about how “things cost money you know!!” when you’re a person for whom keeping money in the bank is pretty much always on your mind.

But it’s not just the out-of-touch well-to-do who like to assume us common folks don’t understand commerce, it’s also entitled dweebs from all corners of the internet who seem to think that because they saw something of yours, they can have it.

I’m talkin’ low-ballers, guilt-trippers, choosing beggars. Like these.

13. Get your kicks

Half price just cause.

Told the dude he needs a different pair of kicks 💀

12. Vroom vroom

The heck kind of car is worth a few hundred?

Car was up for £1050, add stated no silly offers, was I in the wrong?

11. Wrong fight

6 on 30 is exactly 20%. I wouldn’t call that particularly low.

10. Not even real

At the time of writing 100 pesos is closer to five bucks, but still, super cheap.

I’ll headshot this son of a byeetch (100 pesos is like 2$ bruh)

9. Cry

What the heck kind of emotional blackmail is this?

because my son CRY

8. Wanted – a husband

Sounds like a blast, where do I sign up?

We do know that these things don’t like cure ADHD, right?

6. On one condition

“Give us a good rating and THEN we’ll be nice.”

Get a free meal “when you rate us highly satisfied”… Mcdonald’s version of begging for good reviews.

5. Your big break!

I say this as a regional actor: if you see an audition notice like this, stay away.
Even if you’re just starting out, even if you’re bored, even if you just want to network, don’t. Just don’t.

Pay your own way to get to, and stay in, a small town (then insult it with an unpaid acting gig while risking COVID)

4. Supply and demand

What a deal!

Tell you what, I’ll give you less than you asked for if you drive it 8 hours to me?

3. Sorry ma’am

I think this person was actually extremely polite and straightforward.

Cash talks and Imileigh walks

2. Meat hammer

Bruh if it’s just a few sentences, offer money. It can’t possibly cost that much.

I need professional translation, you will receive a meat hammer. Oh and you will have to pay for delivery.

1. Can’t

Now THIS is the art of the deal.

I… I can’t even…

Nobody likes a choosing beggar. Try not to be one.
