Heya Guys 'n' Gals,
I'm really sorry, but today I can't upload a new Character for the OC-tober Challenge. I have issues with my Internet/Mobilephone Provider. I'm a bit frustrated because it is a billing issue which needs to be cleared up. I am frustrated because there is no one living to talk to in the service center apparently. I only talked to machines so far and they weren't helpful at all. The moment I had a human on the other side, the connection was broken and I couldn't understand a word. Nice providing Internet and Mobilephone Provider! He said to hold for a moment and hang up on me... what a service. Now I comparing different provider because I'm sick of bullshit! I'm kinda pissed off. First I pay years a hella lot of money for my phone, then I switch from one provider to the one I have for my Phone to save some money and in the end, I pay almost 100 € this month? There is something really wrong fellas. The internet isn't even that great! I've got a 16k line, which is one of the worst I got told. Researching the possible lines in my area and looking for the provider I can see my recent provider has a 100k line for a good price. So why did I got the 16k for a bad price? What is wrong with those people. Of course, humanity prays money like a hyena a rotten carcass. Did I already mention that I HATE money? Money is the worst thing humanity thought of.
You think you have opportunity and freedom, but think again. You only get those things if you have money. You get sick, you need to pay the doctor to heal you. Either directly or indirectly through your health insurance which you give each month money to. The joke is, you don't get the amount of money back when you get sick. It is actually less.
You're a fast learner and enjoy learning stuff? Well, get to teaching yourself, because universities and schools cost a fuck load of money and you have to pay it yourself! Isn't that great? No way the state is funding the education and health system. They need the money for themselves probably paying all the bombs they are building.
But to be fair, it isn't just the state. The companies and the individual person themselves. I am a freelancing artist. What do you think people want to pay me when I'm doing a job for them. They only see the result and want to pay for that. It is just a colorful piece of paper right? It can't cost much more than 50 bucks, right? Well, this is actually very generous considering your point of view. But it is wrong, it isn't just a piece of paper. It is a grand amount of hours of work and material, but even more hours of experience. Also, you not only buying the work, you're buying the rights to that work. You can multiply it as often as you like. Of course that are costs, too but the artist gave you that opportunity. Without his or her experience and effort, you aren't able to multiply this piece of work. And considering you are a company, you probably want to advertise yourself through that artwork. Without the Artist, you don't get this exposure. You are paying for ALL of that. It isn't that simple as you think. As Company you earn even more money through the artist's efforts than you going to pay him, so please consider paying enough. 50 bucks are a joke and no sane Artist will accept this. As a private person, you can be assured that the artist already considered that into his or her Bill.
The Bills for Companies aren't higher because we think we can milk that cow as hard as we like, no we do that because all the things I mentioned.
I realize this devolved into a rant about money and work. I'll make sure next Monday will be a more fun topic... or maybe a more spooky topic. Stay curious!
