A friend of mine got married some weeks ago. My wedding gift as a professional photographer was to take the wedding pictures. Everything went really well. The pictures turned out great and everybody was happy.
They showed the pictures to some friends that were going to marry next month. The soon-to-be bride called me and asked whether I could take the pictures for their wedding, too. For a six hour shoot, she offered me free cake and drinks. When I politely declined and told her I usually only do professional work for money, she decided to call my friends and tell them what a greedy b**ch I am.
