    I could relate to much of this. However, I have never had an issue with payments. I work with an online freelancing site, which does take a fair bit in commission (which hurts) but ensures I always get paid through an escrow system. On the whole, between the life of a cog in the corporate machine and that of a freelancer, I would choose the latter any day. That bit about the mom thinking the guy is just chilling all day is way too real to be even funny, though.

    Oh my! This is so real that I'm laughing my ass off right now. I've been freelancing in the web development industry for about a year now, and man, these type of clients really piss you off! I know how it feels. BTW, as always, great content BuzzFeed!

    You forgot to add the part where people ask how much you earn even though I have never heard anyone ask that question to a person in a regular job. Just because I am a freelancer doesn't mean it's any less impolite!

    For everyone who thinks freelancers have no future, I started as a freelancer and now own an eCommerce based website and a tech blog with a global audience. Don't let these aunties and uncles tell you what you need to do with your life when they have absolutely no clue about freelancing. We are our own bosses and stand a better chance at achieving our goals than others.
