20 Totally Unreasonable 'Choosing Beggars' Making Ridiculous Demands

We have all heard the phrase "Beggars can't be choosers" once or twice before, whether it was directed at us as children being greedy little kids or towards someone else in a shameful way. The term basically means if you have to beg or ask for something, you can't be picky about what you get. It's a fair premise. Some people, though, clearly haven't heard this before, or they're too entitled to care. The audacity that some people have to ask and expect just about anything from anyone is insane. Many choosing beggars out there are also Karens. It just sort of fits with the generally entitled attitude. Choosing beggars are some of the most annoying people out there, especially because of just how tone deaf they are to what they're asking for. It's just trashy behaviour.

Reddit's /r/ChoosingBeggars is full of poor souls who have had to have encounters with choosing beggars. Many of these encounters happen on Facebook, the home of many trashy people. Many of these encounters happen though Facebook Marketplace, but others are found in the wild amongst insane ask posts. There's many choosing beggar stories out there, but here are just 20 of them that will spark a certain kind of anger within you.

Better Than Nothing

My principal gave me a $10 Amazon Gift Card for Teacher Appreciation Week Teacher Support &/or Advice Yes. The PRINCIPAL gave all of us teachers a $10 Amazon gift card, to thank us for what we do! I'm a Technology Teacher for a school that teaches students with developmental disabilities, and I feel like this is very cheap. WTF am I gonna buy for $10 on Amazon nowadays!? Especially with inflation going on. Don't forget shipping and delivery fees. What are your thoughts on this? I honestly thought it would be $100. I'll even accept $50, but not $10! Vote 11 Share 17m 12m I get nothing at all so I'm flabbergasted that you're disappointed about this. That came out of his or her pocket. I don't know how big the staff is but you want him or her to spend over a thousand dollars? Reply 43 ↓ 4m ... + Award A staff of about 20-40 teachers and TAs.

Budget of Zero

Whish Anonymous member 2h. A friend of mine and their wife are looking for a cheap midsized pickup preferably 4x4. Life has served up a a series of unfortunate events, multiple vehicle failures, having to move, plus a loss of current employment makes everything a touch more difficult. Mid capacity v6 is kind of ideal for fuel economy. They would prefer it not be a dodge or older that 1990. Show me what you have out there, budget is nil. Future payments are a possibility.

$20-$25 a Day

... Needing to find a local, trustworthy and reliable sitter for my 5m old son. Someone PERMANENT. Must have proof of certifications (if you have them), must provide references, and must have a clean/smoke free environment. Pet free would be a plus but separation from pets (especially longer haired) would be okay too. We prefer someone who is not watching a lot of other kids, maybe 2-3 at the most otherwise, but willing to acknowledge all of our options! We provide all of his supplies and necessities, so that will never be a concern. Also wanting to keep the range of 20/25 a day if possible (willing to negotiate though if necessary). M-F 8a-4p (some times will vary depending on our schedules, but it's not very often). THANK YOU.

Now Can someone help my family out? We are in need (my wife and I). We to come up with about $400 this weekend so we can attend the y festival and have a decent time. We live on a tight budget as I haven't been able to find a job in 2 years. We want to go out and have fun at this annual tradition but don't want to go if we can afford anything because that would just be depressing. Ideally I would have a $200 for food/ souvenirs as would she. We also would need care for an Uber to get there unless someone is willing to drive us. Anything is appreciated as long as it's over a $25 donation otherwise it's not worth it due to PayPal taking a cut. DM me for my info. I'll be on the lookout. Be the first to react Like
