UPDATE (March 14th 2012): This character was deleted shortly after this story was published. Maybe she read it and realised how stupid she’d been.
Good news! This is the LAST STORY for March 13th. I can’t believe I experienced so many morons in one day. I honestly thought it was Friday today.
Anyway, I was on Sativan (my Rogue and owner of my bank guild), hanging around the neutral Auction House in Booty Bay trying to score some bargains, when I get a whisper from a Level 2 Druid called Felwyn.
First of all, I don’t know how she managed to whisper me in the first place. My BadBoy anti-spam addon should have prevented her whisper getting through. I probably forgot to enable it or something. Secondly, she’s asking me for gold. So I say to her what I say to all the other beggars I meet – that I’d give them money if they go away and leave me alone. They usually reply ‘k’ – which isn’t doing either, so I tell them to fuck off.
I see Felwyn standing next to the bank, and I can tell just by looking at her that she is wearing heirlooms. An inspection reveals this to be true.
Hmm, maybe it was buying that headpiece that made her poor and forced her to resort to begging.
Anyway, I give Felwyn one last verbal arse-kicking…
… and then put her on ignore. End of.
The thing that pisses me off most about beggars is the fact that most of them don’t seem to realise that in the 30 minutes or so they’ve spent begging, they could have done a dungeon, or some quests, or maybe sold some stuff on the Auction House. But no. They’d rather waste their time (and ours) by standing around yelling ‘gold plz’.
I hate beggars. A lot. Whenever I see someone begging, I take great pleasure in telling them to fuck off. Why should the rest of us slog away doing quests, dungeons, raids and AH trading just to give these idle fucks our hard-earned gold? Beggars seem to think that they are the Royal Bank of Scotland, and the rest of us are the government coming to help with a bailout.
It’s about time beggars realised that they can’t have it easy. Blizzard need to do something about it. One thing they could do is mute peristent beggars. That should hopefully be enough to shove them out of the gates of Orgrimmar or Stormwind, and into the bosom of Azeroth. Perhaps then they will pull their fingers out their arses and do some fucking work, like the rest of us.
