We all know that famous phrase: “Beggars can’t be choosers.” The meaning of this phrase should be obvious: if you’re offered something for free or ask someone to do you a favor, then you really can’t be too particular about what you get or how it’s done. If you’re begging, don’t be choosy. Just say thank you. Easy as that. Except it’s not as easy as that, because clearly, some people really don’t understand this concept; they keep being demanding and picky when it comes to getting free stuff. To prove it, we’ve gathered funny examples from around the web of times that “beggars” were pretty choosy. Follow along and learn what not to do.
