Panhandlers

They irritate the hell out of me.

Particularly, panhandlers in the guise of collaborators seeking some creative symbiosis until much later in the discussion process (when they’re the one that contacted you).

More particularly, panhandlers in the guise of collaborators seeking some creative symbiosis until much later in the discussion process who change their travels plans so that they don’t swing through your town after all and then try to convince you to travel to where they will be (at a 3-hour minimum drive).

Even more particularly, panhandlers in the guise of collaborators seeking some creative symbiosis until much later in the discussion process who change their travels plans so that they don’t swing through your town after all and then try to convince you to travel to where they will be and then have the audacity to call the fee that they’re suddenly asking from you a “travel expense” (can there possibly be any greater an exercise in contradiction and irreverent hypocrisy?).

And most particularly, panhandlers in the guise of collaborators seeking some creative symbiosis until much later in the discussion process who change their travels plans so that they don’t swing through your town after all and then try to convince you to travel to where they will be and then have the audacity to call the fee that they’re suddenly asking from you a “travel expense”, after having told you during the initial discussion months ago: “As for working with you, throw in some gas money so I can be certain to make the drive regardless of the tennessee bookings I get, and I will be there.”

(Note: I was also kindly informed that I have secretly and subversively (unbeknownst to me?) treated essentially every model that I have shot as some throwaway ragdoll because I didn’t flash cash at them in order to properly honor their uniqueness as a model. Preemptive apologies to all of you for the likely delay, as it will take some time for me to mail all the “I’m sorry” cards I’ll need to now send.)
