I have read/listened to Oathbringer 3 times now... and in Moash’s last chapter I realized that Jezrien was that beggar Dalinar would talk with when look for alcohol.
I love these books! Every time I pick them up again I discover so many new things!
*Edit! AHU! Storms you would think a man never misspelled a word before judging on how some of you act! 😎
Beggar: plz give me an Iphone my daughter has AIDS
Me: I have an old iPhone 8 you can have
Choosing Beggar: Sorry I only want an 11 pro can you get me that??? plz her immune system is failing
The difference is easy people
What can I say? I have a sadistic side. I like to see users beg for Reddit awards.
Here are the rules:
Beg like the beggars you are 😈.
Edit: GET CREATIVE, COME ON BEGGARS!!! Show me something I haven’t seen!
I volunteer at small charity shop. The pandemic has hit us hard. I get people are struggling but we still have bills to pay too. Luckily for us we have kind donors.
Had a lady come in the other day. Nicely dressed. Wanted the new with tags handbag we had in the window. But she wanted it for £5. It was £35 (branded, tag said it was over 150 quid). Manager said no.
"But I need it, I bet I can get it cheaper on ebay!"
No one needs a handbag.
We had handbags in for under a fiver, but they weren't brand new.
If you need it that badly, buy it on ebay.
She continued to argue until she was asked to leave.
Had a bloke come in who wanted to buy about 5 99p t shirts. He wanted them all for 99p. Had to ask him to leave too as he was becoming stroppy. He said he could get them cheaper online too.
If you can get them cheaper online feel free to buy them online. It gives me a headache if I have to argue with you. Please stop haggling at charity shops.
Fuck them! Seriously! Whoever had the idea to put them in the game is the worst! I’m so glad they don’t appear in the later games.
Otherwise, I’m really enjoying the game so far.
I was coming off the highway and there was a homeless looking guy with a sign that said “food please”. I was stopping nearby to get a sandwich.
I bought myself one and one for the homeless guy.
Walked up to the guy and offered him the sandwich.
He said “you enjoy that. I’m wanting tacos.
I was gobsmacked, so I just shook my head and walked away.
So this story happens back in 2002, before FB market place and smart phones. Selling stuff was done on Cragislist and via email. There were tons of time wasters and scammers back then.
It might also be a longer one.
I had bought a two burner Weber grill. I kept this thing on a enclosed porch and covered. I cleaned this thing after each use. I loved this grill, it was the first real big home purchase I did. I bought it for 300.
After using it for 3 months, I wanted a bigger and hotter grill. We were hosting a few parties and it was a bit of an inconvenience. I talked my wife in to it and she ok with it, but I had to sell my old grill. Enter Craigslist.
I listed it for 250, which I thought was fair, it was only 3 months old and was in mint shape from not being outside, cleaned and covered after each use. The listing explained this and also said the price was firm, also no checks / cash only. It needed to be picked up, no delivery. Cash needed to be in my hand before I handed over t... keep reading on reddit ➡
this is my official apology. im so sorry, man. i was screaming at you to not go up that staircase. i know you summoned me just to help. i wasn't getting kicks outta watching you die a very quick death, i promise.
im so sorry.
seriously, though, it's weird how that works. i mean, it makes sense, i just feel bad watching players i co-op with run in circles and point towards him, as if im just choosing not to assist. again, it makes sense - he is an NPC - but it makes me feel like an asshole. just wanted to drop an F in the chat for that poor guy. there's a reason we all recommend poison, man, there's a reason.
That was a sick burn tbh.
I recently took over as administrator of my church’s food bank and my private phone number was published (with my permission) as an emergency number to call if you can’t wait for regular hours to get food.
A woman called a week and a half ago and made an appointment for 2 days later. The next night she texted me with an unwarranted complaint and that she wouldn’t be coming the next day. I let her know that the particular food item was just bought 2 days before it was given to her so the fault would be on the grocery store not us. I also said it was her choice whether or not to come.
She got some digs in and kept repeating them until I replied repeating that whether or not she comes in to get food is up to her. She asked what food she would be given if she came and I said it would depend on what we have. She said there’s probably nothing there to be worth going for anyway. I told her I had just restocked the shelves the previous day plus we had a big donation from a local university.... keep reading on reddit ➡
Ok ok, it's my very first post on the subreddit and this happened just a while ago, i'm still very excited and don't speak english very well, sorry for that, and, if luckly it gets into Luba's hands, relax it's single mother free. Ok, so, i was eating my dinner and heard a clap in my door (where I live is very common some beggars to knock on your door asking for something, normally they're good ones, some of them are even friendly and polite) but that one was an huge exception and what happened comes next:
CB (after maybe thirty seconds clapping hands)- Hello, would you have some food you could give away? maybe some money? Ten cents would already be great... (with the best Karen voice rslash could make and big fake smile)
Me- Sure, just wait a second... Here (I say, handing six packages of couscous, it's very common where a live to buy at least some packages of couscous, it's typical)
CB- Uhmm... Only that?
CB- I'm starving here brat, I need something more than... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi everyone, long time lurker, first time poster. Never thought I’d have a story to share here... but life is full of surprises. Amazingly, this incident happened about 3 hours ago.
A couple of dudes ordered quite a bit of food from the restaurant owned by my family. I’m talking about 4 noodles, 2 chicken starters, 2 veg starters, and a couple of gravy dishes. The bill came up to 3377₹ (45$). They came to pick up the parcel, and were presented with the bill.
Despite our prices being on every menu, including on websites and delivery apps, they were shocked at how the bill was “so much”. We explained our position to them, but they insisted that we give them a large discount or some items for free.
We came to the conclusion that they either should pay the bill in full, or leave the food and go home empty handed. They decided to leave empty handed, and did so without much of a fuss... but I have a feeling they expected us to budge and give them some freebies considering how difficult th... keep reading on reddit ➡
Beggar: Its my birthday, can I get a award?
Beggar: Can you please give me a award?
Other beggar: Can I have a award too?
That once really nice guy: Sure I will give a award
Me: are you, the reader, that nice guy that gives people (me) awards?
Edit: Why did someone give me a award.....
My birthday was also 2 months ago, and she never made an effort to say a word to me.
In fact, I've barely spoken to her in over a decade. She just recently hit me up because she wanted me to go to one of her 6 birthday parties she threw for herself. I get the feeling she's sending these canned messages to several people. Also my house was tested negative, we're coronavirus free.
This story happened about 5 hours ago so I remember most of the details.
My mom came home this afternoon and asked me to help her wash her car, in exchange she's offered to help clean mine as well. It was a win win so ofc I helped her (and she's, y'know. My mom)
About half way through washing my mom's car, a man pulled up to our neighbor's house to mow her lawn. When he stepped out of his truck he looked over to us and called out "You ladies givin' free car washes?" (yes, he said "you ladies")
We laughed, and I said "Yeah but my little brother will do it!" He didn't laugh, but grumbled under his breath and started cutting the grass.
We finished washing my mom's car and the man rode closer to us on his lawn mower and asked again "y'all think you can wash my truck though?"
My mom has talked to this man before, nothing beyond "how are you, oh I'm fine", So she figured we'd do him a favor.
We grabbed our bucket, hose, and soap and walked towards his truck. My mom was in... keep reading on reddit ➡
We've reached maximum capacity for posts showing how snarkily you can respond to stupid customers, so we're going to take a break. From now until the end of July, I'll be deleting all of those types of submissions. What are the criteria for removal? Well, as United States Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart said in 1968, "I don't know man, I'll know it when I see it."
We've got the hurt feelings thread. I thought that was enough of an outlet for this stuff, but I was wrong. We need something new. Something fresh. Every Saturday from now until I get bored of it, we'll have a separate thread that will run in parallel to the Hurt Feelings thread. It'll be the Saturday Snarky Screenshot Smörgåsbord thread.
Any feedback on these changes will be responded to as if I'm a brand new seller on FB marketplace with an ax to grind, or as an unreasonably methed-out FB marketplace customer.
So yesterday someone placed a table near me, let's call her IDP(in debt person) while I was looking at constellations at home she honked and sat down. So then I sat down to see what they wanted from me. They begged for me to give them a heart, I then asked if they could repay, she said she would tomorrow and that they do full daily runs. They had rhythm pants and the thinking spirit's light blue cape, they've been playing longer than me and so I trusted them and that I'll just help them out. She didnt have any candles so I had to friend her and unlock high five to give her the heart. Then I went to do my runs. Today after I had finished my runs and took a good break from the game I went back on to have some fun and remembered about me giving the heart to the person and they havent paid it back yet in the constellation. I left my friends to go to her and ask about the heart. She was at home and I went to her and placed a table to chat. I will summarize a lot of the conversation, but my... keep reading on reddit ➡
Having lived far and wide I’m used to panhandlers approaching me. I currently reside and work in the Fair Lakes area. There are a bunch of panhandlers I’m used to seeing at stop lights holding signs and whatnot. I’ve seen this particular woman and her daughter before near my work place, but had no idea they were “beggars”. The young girl is probably 10-12 years old with red wavy hair, freckles and carries a pink pointer/walking stick. The mother has long brown wavy hair and looks like she’s in great shape.
Earlier this afternoon, I went to the PetSmart in Fair Lakes. The two of them were standing outside and I recognized them and smiled with my eyes through my mask at them. The mother quickly approaches me and starts asking me for money and gives me her sob story. Apparently her daughter is recovering from cancer and anything will help! (Mind you, neither of them are wearing masks- strange for a high-risk recovering cancer patient, don’t you think?) I told her I’m sorry, but I don... keep reading on reddit ➡
This happened a while back at the retail store I worked at. It's important to know that at the time, our store had our own brand of mini donuts in a bag (they were discontinued; probably for the following reason). They were really good, however the problem is the way they were packaged. The donuts would be packed and sealed while they were still really warm, which would cause the powder on the donuts to become slightly wet from the trapped steam. This can be off putting for some people because they want powdered sugar, not sugar paste.
Anyway, a man comes in to the store one day looking for a snack. He picks up a bag of our brand of mini donuts, comes up to pay and leaves the store. A few moments later he comes back in with the open bag, having eating one or two, and puts it on the counter.
CB: Choosing Beggar Me: Me
CB: Uh, yeah, I'd like to return these, they're gross.
Me: Okay, sure thing.
I refund him his money and take the donuts back, seemed like a quick fix...but I was wro... keep reading on reddit ➡
I started to use this weapon to spice up my gameplay, and i know how to beggars jump and all that. what do you guys think about the weapon, it’s pros and cons in casual?
