Devious and Horrible Products and Ads Designed to Manipulate People

Ideally, the buyer/seller relationship should be one where upfront sellers provide a valuable product or service to people who are happy to pay for it. This is often not the case. In reality it can be a one-sided war between companies and consumers, with companies trying every underhanded tactic they can come up with to inconvenience, scare and manipulate their own customers into overpaying for horrible products. Seriously, these products and ads were designed by jerks.

The world is rife with manipulative and awful products and ads, and it's worth it to point them out when they're clearly unfair. There's wildly misleading labels, sandwiches made to look like they're twice as big as they actually are, and apps that make you pay money to delete them, just to name a few. It makes you start to think this stuff could be designed by the devil.

Manipulative and Awful Products and Ads Designed By Jerks

Soulless people will do anything to make a quick buck. They'll make uncomfortable standing airline seats to save on space, charge people to go to the bathroom, advertise a cheap product and charge a hundred dollars for shipping, literally hide fine print by making it the same color as the background, and do even more devious BS when they think of it. These are examples of deceptive and crappy products. Like seriously, these were designed by the devil.

Manipulative Idiot Tries to Book Drummer For Free and Make Him Pay for the Flight Himself

Who in their right mind would think it's appropriate to ask someone fly to a different country to do multiple shows for free, and try to pass it off under some "love of the game" BS? Like, you can be passionate about music, but that would be just plain stupid. We've seen a ton of choosing beggars, but what never fails to bewilder is when they straight up get mad when people don't want to be taken advantage of.
