'This isn't a paid gig': Top Choosing Beggars of the Week (March 25, 2024)

'This isn't a paid gig': Top Choosing Beggars of the Week (March 25, 2024)

People seem to be asking for a lot more than they can give these days. We understand that sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures, but most of these instances really just come down to entitled people with a whole lot of audacity. Hopefully, they can read the comments and see what the sane folks on the internet are telling them because that's the only way choosing beggars will come to learn that they are acting like choosing beggars. Otherwise, they will simply resume their “ignora…

'I want to sit there, so can you move?': Karen and Kevin demand for bus passenger to move for the extra leg room

'I want to sit there, so can you move?': Karen and Kevin demand for bus passenger to move for the extra leg room

We all know that bus people are way worse than plane and train people. Sure, there are always exceptions, and sometimes you end up on a plane next to someone who is acting like this is a bus. However, for the most part, bus people refuse to make room for other passengers even if the vehicle is clearly full. Bus people also love to talk on the phone for long stretches of time, as if there is no one else around. They love snacking on smelly food and not cleaning up after themselves. And they love…

Top Choosing Beggars of the Week (February 18, 2024): 'Please be my personal assistant with no guaranteed pay'

Sure, desperate times call for desperate measures, but no one anticipated this level of desperation. It's funny to see where the choosing beggars of the world decide to reveal themselves online. It's often on online marketplaces, social media direct messages, and job site postings. However, regardless of what they want and regardless of where they post, these individuals have no self-awareness, too much confidence, or all of the above. The following collection of this week's top choosing beggar…

'This is all I get': Person donates 6 bags of clothing and food to young family, then woman demands more

You give someone your little finger, and they'll eventually take the whole hand. I learned the hard way that many people online are fishing for constant donations, and it usually isn't the ones who actually need it. I didn't really lose anything in the process, but I do wish I would have given certain things to people who would actually make use of them. One good-willed person's kindness went south after scouring ‘Free stuff’ groups online and offering 6 bags of clothing and food to a young fam…

Guy wants someone to pay him to come and remove his dilapidated shed: 'It will need some attention'

We'd all like to think that we have something to offer to this world. If we didn't, what would be the point? While this is kind of a baited question, the easy answer is that there's more to life than your monetizable value, despite what society might otherwise try and tell you... So, go outside and smell a flower, for gosh sake, and stop overcomplicating a life that is already overcomplicated enough. Still, because of our obsession with our own value and the value of things in our possession, i…

Entitled dude messages seller wanting a free motorcycle, won't take no for an answer: 'I can file a lawsuit'

When we were kids, bratty kids on the playground would claim that their dad, uncle, or other random family member worked for Nintendo. They'd always be spouting some bogus insider information or rumors as if they were undeniable facts, all in the name of getting much-needed attention and clout. These were the days when the internet was just getting started, so it was never really possible to prove their audacious claims to be false, but there certainly were some heated 'uh-uh's' and 'yeah-huh's…

'You could have called': Customer travels to seller's house by transit, despite not having determined a time to meet up

'You could have called': Customer travels to seller's house by transit, despite not having determined a time to meet up

One person was giving away some cat shelves for free, when they encountered the weirdest customer they had ever come across. When you buy something online you determine a time to meet up, right? I feel like that's the universally acceptable thing to do. Otherwise, you risk just standing outside in the rain or something, without having a concrete plan in place for when you will have the product in your hands. And if you did end up driving out to a seller's house without having set a time to meet…

‘She never planned to pay me’: Woman places a $250 order for same-day pick up, then flips the script when presented with products

You need to be careful when you sell products online because oftentimes, people will say anything to get what they want. They will make up a whole family to get a discount if they have to. One person was selling some Christmas products (prefilled stockings) on Marketplace when she was contacted by a mother who wanted to make a large order for her kids. At first, the lady asked for a discount, which OP felt was reasonable as it was such a big order. They agreed on the price of $250, and made a p…

There are the ‘givers’ of the world and the ‘takers’. Givers are generous and caring, trying to do their best to return a piece of karma to the world. Takers are a different story– If you give an inch, they'll take an entire yard.

'The audacity to complain about a $500 gift': Choosing beggar throws tantrum at coworker over a $500 holiday gift card

As much as it is the season of giving, apparently, it is also the season of complaining. Now, I have never been one of those lucky employees to receive a sizable bonus for the Holidays. One has to assume it is the price for not going full corporate. That being said, if I were to receive such a gift, I would try not to take it for granted and remember the days when I would never have gotten this kind of special treatment (meaning, these days). So if this choosing beggar has no interest in using…

Imagine the kind of level of desperation one would have to exhibit to draft a Santa Wish List letter as a 12-year-old child in order to get expensive Christmas gifts. These are the kinds of letters to nonprofit organizations where billionaires purchase Holiday gifts for underprivileged kids. These are the kinds of organizations that are meant for children in need, not fully grown choosing beggars with a whole lot of audacity.

'I NEED this $400 swing for free': Top Choosing Beggars of the Week (November 12, 2023)

As Thanksgiving and the Holiday season come closer, we need to prepare ourselves for the choosing beggars of the world, who will be coming out of the woodwork demanding special treatment with an air of desperation about them. It takes a specific kind of person to be able to be simultaneously desperate and entitled, and in my own life, I tend to see a lot of this in family and friends toward the end of the year. We're talking about people asking for you to catsit for them for a few weeks and yet…

'Most hours are in exchange for accommodation and meals': Wild post from off grid couple seeking unpaid child care draws criticism online

It's perplexing how many people think that they've come up with something clever when all they've done is reinvent something that humans have known about for centuries and made illegal for a reason. You can't just go around asking to do unpaid work for free as if being in your mere presence should be enough to excuse the fact that you're not being fairly compensated. Yes, sometimes this is called an “unpaid internship” but there's another word that comes to mind for pretty much any other time t…

'Feel free to get into the regular line': Entitled Disney family gets owned by the same rules they're trying to circumvent

The most important lesson I learned in customer service was that you should never give an entitled person exceptions to rules or allow them to get away with gaming the system. The thing is, it's hard to stand your ground and face a possible complaint, but if you're firm and fair with them once, that's the only time they'll be a problem . But, as soon as you let them have their way, they're going to keep coming back and be a repeat problem for you because now they know that you and your organiza…

'This is MY stall!': Karen tries to kick someone out of a public bathroom stall, starts shaking the stall and making a scene

Some Karens may run their homes, and others may run businesses, but no Karen owns the public bathroom of a local mall. Somehow, this entitled lady seemed to think otherwise despite the current occupant of said public bathroom stall. This Redditor was doing her business when the Karen came knocking on the stall door and tapping her heels impatiently. OP told Karen there were plenty of other empty stalls for her to use, and there were. However, this Karen simply could not be bothered and refused…
