You can buy my stories if you so choose. Many of you do, and for that I am grateful. Some of you choose instead to listen to the free podcasts. That’s cool, too. The free podcast is kept free via advertising — you know, like every other form of storytelling entertainment. You may have heard of this business model from formats such as TV, Radio, and the Internet.
But sometimes, you get people who aren’t grateful they are getting free stories. Hell, sometimes you get people who bitch that their free stories aren’t just the way they want them.
Case in point, this asshole:
She took the time out of her busy day to send that lovely email. So, of course, I responded in the most helpful way possible (her name is not XXXX, of course, but it would pretty cool if it was).
Her response was to send a cartoon, perhaps trying to play the whole thing off as a joke. I’ll go ahead and stick with my “asshole” assessment, thank you very much.
Don’t like the free stuff? Easy solution — don’t listen. To summarize …
