For anyone that doesn't know, I've just started to dip my toe into the world of online freelance writing. This means I get paid money up front for every article I write. It's not wonderful money, but at least it allows me the option of working in my underpants.

Anyway, here is a conversation I just had via PM on Freelancer.com...

Him: what is your rate for 500 words


my rate is 1$ per 500 words

That's rubbish. You'll only get Indians for that!

did i mention in my bid i need natives

Native American Indians?

At this point I was really gearing up for an exciting conversation. I was expecting to be accused of being racist or zenophobic or something, or for him to start insulting me or whatever. I thought it was going to be fun, but all that he said in response was this:

Him: well if you agree on rates ok otherwise its ok

How disappointing...

Anyway, I'm off out now to have lunch down by the stream, and aint no-one gonna stop me. No, not even you, with your stupid flappy arms, flapping about all over the place like a stupid flappy person.
