There’s a famous proverb that claims ‘beggars can’t be choosers.’ Well apparently there are plenty of delusional jerks out there who don’t see it that way. You know the type—the ‘startup’ company looking for free labor from PhD graduates. The entitled Karen who curses you for declining to deliver a free couch across state lines. The neighbor who thinks paying someone to mow their lawn is basically ‘free money.’ These audacious displays of greed and entitlement are bad enough on a normal day, but demanding free labor in this economy is especially infuriating.
We’ve collected some truly maddening posts and messages that were immortalized on r/ChoosingBeggars. Sometimes it feels good to groan in solidarity.
