I'm a web developer and the Wordpress one rustles my mother ******* jimmies. You know how many people I've done a ****** Wordpress site for and they change their goddamn minds about it? The last one I did someone wanted me to convert a whole site with about 30+ pages into Wordpress and after I did all of the work the guy decides the website loads too ******* slow and never paid me for it so I deleted it. It was a skimpy onezy/twozy job once in a while I do things just to build my resume but still, it's not worth the hassle anymore.

Do your research. Before you ever start freelancing, plan out how you want to run your business. Brand yourself, invest in an LLC (they aren't that expensive but they certainly give your brand a little more oomph when a client is looking around). Establish your going rate, be it hourly or however else you feel like going about it. WRITE A CONTRACT. For the love of god, get EVERY agreement from a client in writing, signed and filed. It will save your ass. If you're uncertain about the client, see if you can't google their name (or their company). I had to do that with a client recently and found a ton of ripoff reports on him. Should have done it before I accepted the job, it would have saved me a lot of headaches. Save all communication with your clients. Like a contract, it will help if things go sour.

Take some basic business classes, too, if you're still in school. It will help as much as the degree related courses.

Trust me, mates. Write a contract. I don't care if it's a friend of a friend, your best friend, or even family. IF YOU DO BUSINESS WITH SOMEONE, WRITE A CONTRACT. She knows that one personally. That was a fun mess. Debt collection is fun.

Socialists believe in everyone (including themselves) paying high taxes and society benefiting as a result.

It's not expecting **** for free. It's expecting everyone to help everyone else.

Really? I'd sure love to know how I'm benefiting from paying taxes for food stamps and government housing when I receive neither of these. Or any welfare for that matter. In fact, the only money I get from the government is student loans, which I have to pay back. Yet some poor ass inner city black person who barely passed high school can get all these things and go to college for free on the dime of those who actually work. That is socialism, or rather the more accurate term, "Legal Plunder," as Frederic Bastiat called it more than a century ago.

It really wouldn't take more than to upload a static gif of each frame, throw some basic javascript in the page, and viola you made the client happy instead of bitching because someone who hired you as a professional isn't correctly using jargon from your field.

Also the piano one is legitimate in both a tactile and mental sense.

The rest are pretty ridiculous though..

>Still have clients in DC
>One Had me put together an over the top girly website for their photography business
>really attractive, solid 9/10, Italian girl but has an overprotective hick boyfriend
>I get a call at about 4am this morning from her asking if I can put some of her new photos up on her homepage
>homepage has one of those cliche banners that just plays a slideshow of photos by fading to the next one continuously
>I say sure, remind her of my flat fee for any kind of site work so ask if there's anything else
>she mentions some ideas for color change since fall is coming up and I hear her knuckledragging bf in the background "who the **** are you talking to? grumble grumble I kicked ass in high school football and now work at a gas station"
>She says she'll send me the photos to upload and we get off the phone
>email arrives, it's literally about 30 nudes of her, and not just mirror selfies, but some high quality nudes
>text her and ask if those are really what she wants on her site
>"ooooops! sorry, sent you the wrong photos by mistake lol" followed by " ;) "
>she sends me the correct photos and halfway through updating I get a call from a private number
>"h-hey you piece of ****! Y-y-you're gonna die! I'm coming for you!"

>I put him on speaker because it's better than radio and continue working while he rambles about me ******* his guuuuuurl and his freedoms or whatever
>He starts demanding a refund for all my services and I just say no and hang up.
>he tried to call back a few times and eventually my actual client calls

Obviously he can't release the nudes (assuming this story is true) because then we would be able to identify the client, and once she sees that her pictures are all over the interwebs, she'll know exactly who did it, and he'll get his ass in trouble.

I'll tell you what I was told when I first started. You can always learn more and learn what you need online. All the tricks and tips are out there for free. Subscribe to their newsletters and try it out, put your own spin on it, and as much as you learn always specialize. To build a name and get clients just sell yourself, invest in business cards, be open to working with whatever someone might have at the time because one job may lead to another and that one may lead to a big one. Don't be afraid to work and don't sell yourself short. Be reasonable but don't be a bargain. E.g. "I'd like a banner for my website" Simple, no animation, won't take up a lot of your time, $150. Offer to work with them to make sure it's something their happy with but remember to let them know that once they've agreed that they're satisfied with the product that if a week later they decide they want something different then it's an entirely new project and fee.

Go forth.

Girl's a complete bitch and the guys is even worse...I'm sure she is provoking his behavior by flirting with strangers and posting nudes so that it gets his attention and he responds, yet he is even worse by getting upset at random people when the person he should be getting upset at and calling a slut is his girlfriend.
