Some Bozo Tried To Swindle A Free Meal Out Of Michelin Star Restaurant In Exchange For ‘Exposure,’ Got Owned
Snake it till you make it is what I always say. Actually I don’t think I’ve ever said that but I was struggling for a opener to this blog. Anyway, as a professional blogger, there are more perks than just a less than stellar salary and strangers calling you a giant pussy in the comment section. In certain instances, you can flex your muscles with brands to get what you want.
Example: The cleaning service Handy once charged me $80 for a cleaning that never happened. They were being total dickbags about it and only surrendered when I told them verbatim, “I work for an online publication with millions of monthly readers and I’m not above throwing a temper tantrum online.” I felt like a complete douche canoe for resorting to that, but 80 bucks is 80 bucks. They refunded me half of that. Dickwads.
Well, a food blogger tried to weasel a free meal out of an Michelin star gourmet French restaurant in Kilkenny, Ireland by using the “exposure” card.
Campaign Restaurant–which serves entrees upward of $30+– tweeted out the offering, mocking the poor bastard.
Hey no swings, no hits. But if you miss, the entire internet is going to make fun of you…
