Toxic Dad Wants Free Painting, Gets Rejected, Won't Pay Babysitter

This dad is the definition of toxic. He reaches out to the babysitter that he has yet to pay, after they watched over his four kids, and asks for a free painting. Upon rejection for the free item, he proceeds to refuse to pay the babysitter for their services. Completely absurd. The bad vibe is all with this guy.

So help out even consider paying few days watched kids us can even buy canvas money Wait talked and she said she'd pay babysitting lost. Am supposed gift an art pieces give and can pass as gift?

Alright, this is downright, straight up, all around impressive. And the final result was good enough that you could tell the trees were pretty happy. Tumblr users are a creative bunch, doing stuff like writing an alien invasion story where the aliens are fought off by wildlife or expounding on wacky historical facts. Seriously, following along with MS Paint is brilliant and highly commendable.
