What in the hades is wrong with you people (not you specifically...unless it is you specifically)??
I understand that we are in a recession, er... recovery. But c'mon folks. Seriously?
I have noticed stingy people seem to be multiplying like rabbits lately.
I started taking note when I was visiting the Android Market (Damn your eyes... I refuse to call it Google Play). I read the reviews on everything
before I download it, sometimes for laughs and sometimes just to make sure it doesn't suck.
On most of the reviews I see things like:
"OMG! diz game only haz 40 free levelz!! Why should I pay a $1 for 1,432 more?... uninstalled"
"WTF dev? I have to pay for this app? Why can't you offer a free version with no ads?"
"Don't understand why you so greedy. Ads are too much."
"Thought app was free, dl'd it and got ads. Dev wants $ to remove. False adverts! Unisntalled."
"99 cents is too much! Why no free version?"
Misspellings are on purpose in the above, simply because that's they way most of them are written. The more I read, the more I wonder what the hell
is wrong with people? Why should ANYTHING be free simply because YOU didn't have to work for it? The people making the games/apps put their own time
and money into it... calling them greedy for wanting to be paid for it is akin to calling Wal-Mart greedy for not letting you steal from them.
You might not want to pay 99 cents to flap your bird in between sewage pipes for hours on end while your children cry from the basement for food....
fine...don't pay for it. But don't act all affronted when someone expects to get paid for work they have done.
Then we have those same people do the same thing in person every where they go. I was in a take out place over the weekend when I guy stared at the
menu for 20 minutes then ordered his food. The total came out to $3.20. This guy proceeds to go off, raise his voice and complain about that amount
(which was listed on the menu) all the way until his food was finished and he left. Really? I wasn't even aware they had something so cheap on the
menu (and I have to watch what I spend all the time), but why order and then complain (very rudely) about how much it is when you saw the price before
you ordered? The poor guy taking the order didn't really know what to do but accept the beratement. I was embarrassed and angry for him at the same
I guess all of these folks are the ones that can't wait for the "wealth distribution" to begin. I don't have a lot of money. So little that if I
had a major car issue, I would likely have to save to get it fixed... but I would not expect to get it fixed for free. I certainly would not get a
quote then piss and moan about that amount when I went to pick it up either.
I notice this seems to be more prevalent in the younger generation, though I am sure older folks do the same thing. I often wonder if these people
would be willing to work and give their stuff away like they expect others to do. Somehow I don't think they would be pleased with that. Irony.
There is no such thing as a free lunch.
Pay for it or GTFO. JMO.
Not much of a rant I suppose. It just amazes me that folks expect to get everything for free no matter what it cost for someone else.
I fully expect someone to ask me why I hate the elderly and the children so much.
It's for the chiiiildren.
