I run a free weekly periodical that makes money by selling ad space. I do almost everything myself, including designing these ads. A restaurant owner contacted me and we went back and forth in email, first discussing price, size, distribution and readership numbers and all that. They agreed to buy 4 weeks of a cover spot so I designed their ad. They kept forgetting details and making changes, and were generally a pain in the butt. When I finished I sent over the (very reasonable) invoice.

Client: Oh, you charge for ads? I thought this was just like, a zine. Well, no thanks then.

Then they ghosted me. Until I saw they were using the ad I designed on their Facebook page.

I got them to take it down. But damn. What a wiener.
