For a min, I thought all those stones were potatoes. MMM 'taters.

Today's joyous hate comes from the bowels of the entitlement generation that believes I should bend over while they fist fuck my asshole to extract my knowledge for free. Evidently charging $100 dollars an hour for consulting just isn't cool with people that are working on multimillion dollar projects.

+1

$100 an hour for consulting work sounds a bit on the "low" end to me? Especially for someone with vast experience in any particular field!


I, (and some others I know,) have run into the same kind of thing with our Photography! Some project, charity, fundraiser whatever just "loves" my work and was wondering if they could use it for their "Huge Multi Media" or public display, ad campaign, etc. etc! ...and would I be willing to donate the use of such and such image(s)?"

Funny thing is,... (and this is ALWAYS the case,..) The public relations ppl are getting paid!! The graphic arts design guys are getting paid, the printers, the caterers for the "Gala Event," The President/CEO of XYZ Corp. or Charities,.. Etc. etc. etc, yadda yadda, ad infinitum! They are all getting paid!

But me? "I" should simply donate my talent, my intellectual or creative property, my time effort and expenses, out of the goodness of my heart! (....and don't get me wrong, on occasion I have! )
But usually what happens when I point out all the others who will be receiving a paycheck from whatever endeavor,... I usually get the huffy, prissy little, "Well I Never" routine!!!!!


...if they don't place a value on your talent, experience, expertise, etc? Fuck 'em!

You're only Young Once,.. but you can be Immature FOREVER!

On the topic of entitlement, and I will probably get flamed for this, but just because you are old, and moved from another country does not give you the right to get angry at me because you DEMAND that I give you a discount on a product. I will help you if you ask nicely, but I will not help you if you DEMAND a discount, and then proceed to kick the items that we have placed around our store. I have a business to run, as much as anyone else.

yea +1. Not being personal, nor direct, but if a person claims the argument of self entitlement, do realize the claim goes both ways. If you're complaining about a persons entitlement because you feel entitled, well...realize the oxymoron

...that opening day clashes with a big day of test rugby, including Ireland v Australia.

Nice problem to have admittedly.
