Do you know how much a web designer makes per hour? Anywhere from thirty to sixty dollars. What about a web developer, which is definitely a different job? You’re reaching more toward a hundred dollars an hour, and that’s on the low end. So when this guy started looking around for a web designer, thinking he would get it for free from a friend of a friend, he was totally, totally off his rocker.
It’s a lot of work putting all those pieces into place and making them look good. A bad website can ruin a customer’s experience and ruin a sale, so next time, bud, just pay an expert.
Nothing to Bargain With
Trying to do a little bargaining? We getcha. It's something everybody should know how to do, even if you don't use it all the time. You could eke a little bit more out of a raise, knock down the price on a big purchase, or find cool items like headphones for cheap.
This person doesn't know how to bargain. First off, Beats are pretty famously not very good headphones. They have the branding and they have the sleek look, but that big price tag is pretty much all for the name on the side. Airpods aren't much better, and certainly not better than Sennheisers.
Sorry, Why Exactly Is This Person Angry?
Here's a bit of backstory: Blue is a custom PC builder, an industry that has had a bump in recent years thanks to the number of people who are getting into the gaming scheme for any number of reasons. $1300 a pop is nothing to sneeze at, and even that might be on the low end of what people are paying.
So when some random guy (as far as we can tell) hits the builder up with a too-late offer of five hundred, it seems almost laughable. He then gets kind of unreasonably mad that the computer was already sold. Too little, too late.
The Clothes Fiend
Blue tries so hard – SO HARD – to be diplomatic during this entire conversation. Two gals get into a discussion about one of them borrowing clothes, but it's not going to work out, since Blue was planning on wearing that outfit already and doesn't have anything else that will fit White.
White doesn't seem to take this the right way, deflecting reasons and bringing up imagined insults. It gets worse and worse, with White demanding clothes, and Blue pointing out a sordid past that the two have had when it comes to swapping outfits. But she can't afford clothes – that new Lexus is pricey.
A Long-Distance Friendship Finally Ends
Two people reconnect over a desire for some live music at a little event, but the amount being offered simply isn't enough. Plus, the distance has increased recently, and that's a lot of travel time and gas money. It seems like a no-go from the start, but the friend on the left keeps trying, and trying, and trying, offering food and drink, and offering the speakers and mic.
But a lot more is needed, and fifty dollars for all that time and travel just isn't going to cut it. The friend on the left doesn't take it very well, and after two years of silence things probably move back in that direction.
