Choosing beggars are their own breed. They go through life using logic other people can’t even process and remain quite a mystery. However, reddit user /u/II-I-Hulk-I-II is one of the few people that understand it. Recently, when a potential client messaged them, asking for a 50% discount on their services because “it was their birthday,” the artist applied the same logic and quickly reduced them to curse words.

After some commenters started complaining about the math, /u/II-I-Hulk-I-II said:  “The point of the joke is that she wants 50% off the original value of the product which is $10. So, I want the same discount applied in reverse as it is my birthday also; so if she wants $10 off, I’m adding $10 on.”

“I didn’t mean to state that I was adding 50% of the already discounted price because that wouldn’t make sense with the joke, although, I can see how the wording may have suggested that to some people.”
