A story of struggle, and manipulation from (a few) wealthy San Franciscans, in the style of Niccolò Machiavelli

Pilar’s Cafe is now closed. Photo courtesy of Google Maps.
I had a type. My type now is honest, nice, communicative.
Me in 2018 doing a sunglasses ad for extra cash (style boards, makeup and hair done/created by me)
Courtesy of my instagram story. In case you couldn’t see it, he said “55 flat rate is a bit high for what I want to accomplish”. Did you not want to accomplish having your AirBnb Property cleaned?!
They made me provide them with many references, which takes time and effort.
They said they were flexible, but they weren’t and I had to move my schedule around theirs, only to get burned. I lost so many days of work at other jobs because they were so unflexible.
It was never sorted and I was on their schedule, turning away other work.
This was my last email to them before they “let me go”
Well, they learned too…they don’t believe in tipping — just flat rates. They updated the ad after they told me “no thank you” to my fee adjustment based on services provided and no gratuity but they must be willing to scrub the bathroom/toilet.
Some replies.
A couple more. Basically, everyone pays their person way more.
