We’ve all heard those tales of people who think artists should work for nothing – or “exposure” – but one chancer’s attempt to get a picture for nothing had an added WTF factor. Redditor sunriseglow shared her story of being asked to work for no money, and how it actually managed to go downhill from there.
The exchange started off with a cheesy and, frankly, creepy “compliment”.
His expectation of a favour came across as particularly arrogant.
He sank lower still when he ramped up the sick grandma emotional blackmail and somehow thought this might be a flirting situation.
Of course, reminding her of his feminist credentials was always going to change her mind – NOT.
The heading chosen by sunriseglow caught the essence of what we just saw.
“Guy from my school who runs the feminist club wanted free art for his dying grandmother, proceeded to (kind of?) ask me out on a date, then called me a bitch. Nice.”
Naturally, his outrageous behaviour came in for some much-deserved criticism from Reddit users.
