    [–] Wanting $170 worth of food for free NotATransponster 10 points ago in ChoosingBeggars

    It's these type of people that then make others question whether or not they should continue with their generosity. It's actually awful that there are people that are always willing to exploit the kindness of others, with no remorse or consideration. I can never understand where that entitlement comes from.

    I've noticed that the majority of the time the people that are willing to exploit, are in a comfortable position where they don't ever have to worry about their next meal. Those that are in genuine need, often will not behave in this manner.

    This is just so gross. He probably does not have a wife. He'll turn up in a skirt, just for a discount.

    [–] This man went to his barbershop to get his head shaved, as he had started chemotherapy. Three staff members shaved their hair off in solidarity. NotATransponster 6 points ago in MadeMeSmile

    Please don't take away from this gesture, it is nothing but supportive. You can evidently tell what that meant to this man. Many people shave their head in solidarity, it's always a kind gesture just to let the other person know they are not alone.

    I lost my father to cancer and my mum is currently fighting for her life because of it. There are no set rules of what is right or what is wrong. Any kind gesture is always appreciated.

    Just brilliant. She’s incredible.

    [–] Guy wants to pay me less per hour because I’ll be working long hours. NotATransponster 4 points ago in ChoosingBeggars

    He barely even negotiated, just asked some questions and said he would get back to him. I don't understand how OP could take offence to anything said in this conversation.

    This is a sub for choosing beggars, where is she begging? She's not being choosy either. 500 would get her an iPhone X, and also other used phones. I'm not sure how anyone can justify this as a choosing beggar.

    I'm not a dude, and you're free to believe what you wish, it makes no difference to me. Your original comment was also downvoted by multiple people. Anyone could be reading what we both write.

    I'm deep enough in this thread because I spent time explaining something to you? That makes sense.

    Anyway, I'm done, take care.

    So where is the part that shows someone being a choosing beggar? This person was civil and did not beg you nor behave entitled. If anything, you seem petty by posting such a mundane conversation in a sub it has no relevance to. All he said to you was that your price seems high, but he will discuss with his partners. How could you take offence to that?

    I did not downvote you, does it state that I did? I have no reason to. If I had an issue, I would not even bother responding and explaining things to you. Nonetheless, why even worry about a downvote?

    Because phones can be unlocked so that a SIM for any network will work. If a phone is locked to the same network a potential buyer has a SIM for, it would not be a problem.

    Potential buyers will either consider the phone because they do not mind getting it unlocked themselves, or they're on the same network. Others will be put off as they do not want to go through the effort of paying to get it unlocked. Usually, getting a phone unlocked does not cost much.

    I'm not too sure why you've never heard of this before, as it's a question that many want an answer to when purchasing phones. Most sellers will also clarify whether or not it's locked in their advert to avoid getting the question asked repeatedly.

    You seem to be confusing bricked phones with phones locked to a specific network. Bricked phones will not work if you've reported the phone as stolen.

    Yes I am aware of that, but the term is most widely known when clarifying whether or not a phone will work with all networks, or if it is locked to a specific one. Phones that are locked as you mentioned are usually referred to as being "bricked".

    I completely respect that, and understand. I do wish you and your family the best, your brother is a fighter. I hope he does have a long healthy and happy life ahead.

    Thank you for your kind words. Losing my father has been the worst experience of my life, and now my mum is all I have. We are now hoping for the best for her. I cannot even imagine losing her.
