Family that is.
So as many know we have a 7 week old daughter and i have been plastering her shots on here
Well a couple of weeks ago one of my wife’s uncles asked if we could print him off a couple of shots of Abby to show around work and stuff... which is fine with me i told him to jump on my facebook and let me know which ones he wanted. So he ends up picking out like 30 shots which really was not an issue so i dropped them off and had them printed and we seen him a couple of days later so i gave him the envelope with the pictures in it with the invoice for what i paid i mean it was only like $8 but still.
So now 2 weeks later we have seen him a dozen times and nothing has been said he see's the Halloween pictures i did yesterday so he sends me an email last night asking if he could get prints of the Halloween shots. So i replied to him to let me know which ones he wants. He sends me a list of almost 50 shots i have taken over the last 6 weeks... I mean WTF!
So i spoke to my wife about it and she mentioned that allot of her family have been asking for the shots so we decided last night that they are only snap shots i am not interested in making money off them if anything i want people to see them as i have had a few people book me to shoot there kids for Halloween and stuff from the shots i posted of my daughter so its worked out.
So we agreed i put together a CD with all the shots we care to share on it set to be printed at 4x6 and we are giving one copy of each cd to each family cost me 20 cents compared to whatever the cost of printing is.
Well i replied to this one uncle and told him that liz and i will have a CD ready in the next couple of days that will have all the shots we have taken of her and that we will drop a copy off to them this week.
Thanks for the offer of the CD however really don't go to all the trouble for us i don't want to put you guys out i know you really dont have alot of time on your hands these days.
If you could just let me know when the prints are done we will drop by and see abby and pick them up from you."
I mean... HELLO!!! WTF!!!!!
This guy is soo bloody cheap, no he does not want the CD cause he wants me to pay the printing cost!!!
So i replied to him and told him that the CD was no trouble for me however if a CD was inconvient for him he could go to my zenfilio account and there he can order any pictures he wants at any size he wants at the touch of a button.
I could not help but notice on the site link you gave me that the prints where going to cost me $2.50 each. I just wanted to let you know that i can get them printed at Costco’s for like 19 cents each."
And... After a few more WTF's..
my reply to him.
“Excellent, you will have your CD tomorrow... While you are at Costco’s i could really use a club pack of Doritos!
Am I wrong in thinking that part of the family i married into is CHEAP.. While I like to be professional and we don’t like to give our work away for free.. Something like this I don’t see an issue doing.. But people understand she has 14 aunts and uncles all of which want pictures.... I would go broke printing the images for these people.. Now that i think about it i have never been repaid for any prints i have done for family
