Weddings are insanely expensive. Some people avoid these costs by eloping, doing a low-key ceremony at City Hall, or just saying "screw it!" to the quest for love and getting a dog (highly recommend #3). Then there are those people who decide to do a traditional wedding, but try to shirk the costs by insisting people work for them for free. This last option is a great way to alienate your friends, family and acquaintances, and to go viral on Reddit.In the latest episode of choosy beggar brides, a photographer shared screenshots of a conversation she had with a former schoolmate who reached out and asked her to attend, and also photograph, her wedding. For free.Things started out innocently enough. RedditBut when the photographer asked for a deposit, the bride responded that she "assumed" she "wouldn't need to pay a single thing" considering her and the photographer were "best mates in school."The bride added that the photographer didn't pay X, who turns out to be the photographer's sister. The photographer responds by explaining that she photographed her sister's wedding as a gift and even then, her sister paid for her hotel room and drinks all night. RedditBeggar bridezillas don't tend to react well when they don't get what they want, and this one is no exception.After the photographer explained that being friends in school doesn't mean she owes the bride any "freebies," the bride threw a fit, telling her to "f*ck off," disinviting her from the wedding, and then topping it off by calling her a "fat bitch." RedditThe photographer responded by thanking the bride and telling her to have a "lovely day!" This was the perfect way to handle this, since nothing enrages an already-angry sociopath like refusing to engage with their bullshit.Commenters on Reddit are dragging the bride for her terrible, yet unfortunately all-too-common, behavior.HarryPottersOwl writes: “But you didn’t charge your sister!” Wtf is wrong with people. The_Champ99 writes: From "Best mates" to "fat bitch" real quick togadiz adds: Ridiculous. You even gave her a friends and family discount, and based on the deposit, probably weren’t charging nearly enough. What an ungrateful twatwaffle. And whenfaithdies has a prediction: Let's see how quick she comes running back to you, when she realises, how expensive other wedding photographers are CryoClone, a wise owl, sees the silver lining in this type of interaction: As I've grown older, I really appreciate people who treat me like this. Truly. My mind just goes "ah, sweet. One less person I have to pretend to give a shit about if I see them in public." Eventually, you are rid of all the chaff and are stuck with only people you would actually enjoy seeing on places and catching up with. Throw out the chaff. arvhult agrees, writing: Freaking this. I recently got rid of a longtime "friend" that has always been treating me like shit and with disrespect, and I realized I am so much happier now. IN CONCLUSION: next time someone you once called a "friend" treats you like dirt, thank them for showing you their true colors so you can Marie Kondo them right out of your life like a pair of old underwear that no longer sparks joy.
