  1. That was soo damn funny my guts are aching from laughing so hard! I'll be smiling all day long . . . that clip was sad but true. . .
     
  2. Funny.
    I like the line where the client wants a discount and the photographer asks if the magazine employees took a pay cut.

    Lots of them have taken a permanent pay cut. Just this last week, the employees of Gourmet, Modern Bride and Elegant Bride took that pay cut.
     
  4. I was asked to do a commision a while back ..... the travel was around 250 miles round trip for half a day's photography, the location would take me around 6 hours driving there and back, they wanted all images editing ready for print.
    They wanted to pay £80.00 for this, the price of petrol here in the UK would cost around £40.00 for the trip, you can guess what i told them.
     
  5. That was pretty awesome.
     
  6. That reminds me of when I worked with Lee Enterprises. Except Lee was not so polite or honest. ;)
     
  7. Terry. THANKS!
    OMG..That is great! LMAO
    Unfortunetly, for most freelancers it has become a reality.
     
  8. That was really too over-the-top for me with the crude language. Here's another one along the same vein, only not in cartoon form, and not so incredibly crude. But when all is said and done, these would be a lot funnier if they didn't hit so close to home.

  9. Wow! That was great! Thank you so much!
    I wasn't offended at all by the four-letter words. It's a brilliant juxtaposition, the profanity and the bodily-function noises coming out of the goofy-looking robots. It all punctuates the ridiculousness of the request. I really felt the poor guy's frustration.
     
  10. Both the OP's and Jeff's links have merit- unfortunately too much. Haven't we all been there. Just say no. I prefer the Robots- the frustration level seems a little more accurate.
     
  11. That was seriously the funniest thing I've heard all week I laughed so hard I cried! I love it maybe that should be the introductory video on my website! LOL
