We say “beggars can’t be choosers” when someone has limited options but for some reason tries to ask for more. While it usually doesn’t hurt to ask if you can get a better deal, for example, sometimes people really don’t know when to stop pressing their luck.
The subreddit “Choosing Beggars” (or r/ChoosingBeggars) is dedicated to “posting screenshots, pictures, or stories of people who are being way too picky when it comes to who they beg for a relationship or any other matter” and it is full of examples of behavior that will blow your mind.
These 55 people think they should get things for free, feel entitled to people’s time and energy, and are just generally clueless when it comes to social norms. We simply can’t believe some of these people are for real when they make their requests or get called out on their behavior!
Read ahead for the top CBs (Choosing Beggars) of all time.
1. Mother of the year
This one is worth a long scroll just to see how entitled some people can be – truly mindblowing.
The poster explained: “I teach swimming to kids for free even though I was offered money. Mombie demands that I have to teach her son exclusively. And to give her the money offered as I don’t need it.”
She really tops her own bad behavior when she offers to dump her kid in the pool and leave his well-being up to the swim instructor.
2. But I told my kids they could have your stuff
This Redditor introduced the story by saying: “I tried to give away two harnesses that no longer fit my dog. Did not go well.”
A choosy beggar not only demanded to have them despite not being the first to contact them but also got mad when they couldn’t be hand delivered.
3. Let me keep stealing your Netflix
This one is titled “Friend of my Ex has been using my Netflix details without my knowledge for years. Calls me cheap!”
It’s not uncommon to share a Netflix account, but it’s pretty insane to assume someone you don’t know will keep paying for your entertainment. Be careful who you share those passwords with!
