18+ Times Choosing Beggars Made Us Want To Give Up On Giving
There might be nothing worse than the Choosy Beggar—we have all met one, even if we didn’t recognize it at first.
They are the type of people who are first in line for the free handout, and also the first to complain about the quality. This list is dedicated to all those people who take the time to ask for more than their fair share.
Mechanics Are Skilled Tradespeople, Say It Louder
Why do so many people think that they deserve a discount on vehicle repairs?
Mechanics are not making much profit on basic maintenance jobs, yet people still have the audacity to ask why it costs so much and takes so long.
How Much Exposure Is Too Much Exposure?
Photographers are constantly dealing with people low-balling them on pricing or asking for free photoshoots.
This person tried to offer a photographer social media “exposure” in return for a photoshoot, but that didn’t fly with the photographer who said they’re already as exposed as it gets.
That’s Not How Any Of This Works
For some reason, this discussion about buying a home is happening on Facebook.
The interested person who responded clearly does not understand that you can’t set up a mortgage with the previous homeowner.
The Box Isn’t The Expensive Part
Certain people can’t take no for an answer, even when they are told twice, in writing.
This person wanted to buy a brand new Nintendo Switch from someone online and really asked if they could get a discount if they agreed to purchase without the box.
Someone Save The Neighbor From This Woman
There is likely a good reason that this woman is a single mom because it seems like she’s willing to manipulate every man she comes into contact with, including the kind next-door neighbor.
Some parents will do anything for child support money.
No Thanks Necessary, Seriously
A freelancer practicing web development decided to offer a service where they make a website for free to gain experience.
Some random person got mad that the freelancer didn’t pay for a domain name, which was never part of the plan.
When Your Scam Stops Working Properly
This insane email came from someone who illegally purchased access to a Disney+ account on AliExpress.
The person who sent the email was likely also the victim of a scam, but either way, it’s a no, Sean.
Gone, But Not Quite Forgotten
Giving away something from your home helps declutter the space and you can usually say “out of sight, out of mind” once it’s gone.
This woman did not have that opportunity because after giving away her free vacuum cleaner, the person who received it sent a message complaining about dirt and dust in the canister.
12 Might Be A Hard Year For Her
Who is going to break it to this parent that the things they want for their daughter are both hella expensive and not casual donations you can get from a friend?
It seems like there might be some tears this year.
Anyone Interested In Paying To Go To Work?
This conversation goes off the rails fairly quickly when the client ends up proposing that the small business owner actually pays them.
Plus, they want the original product for free. Yeah, right.
There Is Not A Good Enough Selection In The Free Library
A woman installed a “FreeLittleLibrary” in her front yard for people passing by and neighbors to use.
So naturally, she was surprised to find this choosy beggar’s note that requested she throw out some old books and introduce some new ones.
“What’s The Best Way To Steal From You?”
Imagine having the gall to contact an author and ask them how you can pirate their book, as this person did.
What is wrong with just paying creative people for the contributions they make?
Why Do They Keep Going Back?
When a local church is shelling out time, money, and volunteers to put on a free turkey dinner for the holidays, it’s not in good faith to leave a one-star review online.
Still, these greedy people felt slighted by their free meal and wanted to complain.
Play Stupid Games, You Win Stupid Prizes
It’s hard to say whether this troll genuinely believed that they could purchase a $1,000 computer for $25 but they still tried.
The seller told them exactly where they could go to find what they need—Toys’R’Us.
Broke People Are Scamming
Being an artist is often not as rewarding for people as they hope and their hard work goes underappreciated.
This artist sent a painting to a customer and four months later the customer requested a “Charge Back” through PayPal to get a refund, then they denied it and blocked the artist.
Not All Business Is Good Business
If you have never worked on any kind of woodworking project you might be shocked to find that it’s not a cheap hobby.
This beggar should have known better if they really do have a “cabinet shop,” but it seems like they’re not worth the hassle.
This Person Can’t Be Serious, Yet They Said They Were
A confusing exchange between these two reveals that the potential buyer actually asked the seller to unsell the car and then resell it back to them for a lower price.
It must be so nice to live at the center of the universe in your own head.
Hopefully She Serves This Pasta With A Side Of Divorce
Presumably, this man’s wife realized her husband was on his way home from work and whipped him up the best meal she could with what was in the kitchen.
Instead of saying thanks, or saying nothing, this jerk decided to shame her meal on social media. It’s almost like he could have made his own dinner.
Does Anyone Want To Pay To Work At This Wedding? Only $100 Entry Fee
Wedding clients are often on another level of entitlement, but this is fairly demanding.
Thankfully, this photographer “doesn’t need to pay to work,” and who does, really? They shut down the bride’s outrageous request ASAP.
A Bridezilla In The Making
First of all, why is there a Ring Shaming group on Facebook? Whatever goes on in there can’t be good.
This woman’s post is further proof because she managed to find her future engagement ring and decided to bash it online.
Might As Well Just Leave Them With An iPad
Childcare is one of the hardest jobs out there and somehow it remains one of the lowest-paid positions.
When you get what you pay for, and it comes to your children, don’t you want to make sure you have the best? The person who pointed out the absurd rate was swiftly blocked.
He Had Time Today
After helping him out once or twice, this Redditor (with the sign) found out that the man with the gas can was actually a fraud with a nice Jeep and a nice house.
He just patrols the streets begging people to help run his scam.
Choosing Beggar And Zero Manners
One person posted on Reddit about this rotten human being who was so offended by the local farmers.
“My local farmers/community generously put out produce/clothing/canned goods for anyone to take if they need and someone wrote this (the produce really is not that bad!)”
Trying To Match A Free Fridge To Their Appliances…
I hate to break it to this delusional person, but every free fridge she’s going to get offered is going to be one of those off-white ones from someone’s garage.
This is a hard lesson to learn.
“It’s Called Doing It Yourself”
Look, if you don’t have the ability and don’t have much money, I can understand why you would post something like this.
Clearly though from the laughing faces this wasn’t the case with this person.
This is the kind of thing that’s on a sitcom.
Imagine getting into an altercation with your neighbor over the brand of ketchup they have. Honestly though, people have done worse over a lot less.
“All They Do Is Sell Beds”…Yes
This person clearly doesn’t understand that once you buy something from a store, they’re not at your beck and call for the rest of your life.
Crazy concept right?
Just A Garbage Human
I hate to break it to this person, but nobody owes you anything.
If you wanted to pay for a specific service (wink wink) then hire that service, don’t go creeping on random people with your nasty expectations.
“Somebody has already encountered a choosing beggar before.”
Hagglers beware, this person is taking zero BS.
I honestly wish I had this amount of confidence to post this. The amount of people on Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist that don’t care at all about anything is just shocking.
I’ll Take The $100 Then If You Don’t Want It
Welp. Nice to know this woman thinks $100 is offensive, if that’s the case I’d be happy to be offended any day in her place.
Seriously how broke are you that you can’t fund your own birthday?
