Choosing Beggar Pulls The "Rude" Card After Being Rejected Free Services

Choosing beggars never fail to leave us scratching our heads. Why bother asking what the price is for something when you're coming into the situation with a nice whopping $0 in your mind? In this case, I guess they reached so far as to offer shelling out for the postage fee. My god! How gracious. But seriously, what compels these choosing beggars to do the things they do. And then without fail they'll play the victim and call the seller who's just trying to make money off their skills, "rude." What a nightmare.

There are more than a few satire websites out there, and there's a lot of softheaded nincompoops who believe it. Sometimes reading a joke headline can be confusing for a person who lacks critical thinking skills. Often they get angry because they don't understand what's going on. Sometimes, even more distressingly, they think that the headline is good news and share it with their friends. It's fun to laugh at their confusion, but eventually it just kind of gets sad.
