    most fun I had all day! I do care if I get it right. I TRY! but if I do not get it or the other does not get it oh well..just ask smart questions and give honest answers. One word I had was "staff" ok..is that group of people or a walking stick? I chose to treat it as a group of folks instead of a stick..

    My 20q was all good. I joined as the answerer and the guy before me fucked it up on q2 so no matter what I did I was an asshole.
    edit: they weren't being abusive just threatening to report me, but im all there aint a button to let them know what happened so, if it was you that had bricklayer no hard feelings!

    yeah some people are being downright nasty :(

    p.s. there is a difference between an object and a physical object (at least I think so).

    They are frustrating cause the whole they are great if you have a partner with a pulse, otherwise meh. But also give someone a big bag of gold, they will complain it is too heavy.

    They hiring? Aside from the whole not paying rent / leaving you to deal with the police deal...this seems like a sweet gig, no? ;)
    As others have said, get through it without gritting your teeth too much, and message the requester. I messaged the Requester once about something similar, and they were very grateful for the feedback as it helps them to weed out workers causing these issues.
