If you agree on a price with someone about anything, that amount should be set and shouldn’t be able to be changed, right?
Well, I guess not, judging by this story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page.
Take a look at what happened and let us know what you think in the comments…
AITA for charging a bride more for make up when the OG price we agreed was lower?
“I am a makeup artist for the past 9 years. I charge $500 for bridal makeup, around 250 for bridesmaid etc makeup but for regular party makeup I charge around $150.
So few weeks ago a lady had booked me for a party makeup on June 25th. She booked at 10am. I went there thinking I’d do a regular party makeup. I had agreed $150 with her.
As I was there, there were some people coming over. I assume relatives. At some point it slips from a woman about the wedding and I realise the woman I’m doing the makeup on is the bride. I’m doing a bridal makeup charging for simple party makeup.
I was completely pi**ed how she lied about the occasion but I kept doing my job. After we were finished. She gave me $150 and I notified her we are actually $350 short. She asked what I meant by that and I said that I did a bridal makeup. You’re the bride. That’s what I charge for bride’s.
She said we had agreed on a simple party makeup and that I am basically ripping her off because I worked the same amount of time and used the same products as I’d use in a bridal makeup so the title of the event shouldn’t matter. I told her she doesn’t get to dictate how I form my prices. She then refused to pay me at all and called me a scammer and told me to get out. Before I left her mom threw $200 on my face and told me to get lost.
I was telling what happened to my friends and they all sided with the bride and said that unless I used more expensive products and I did extra labor then I’m not justified in charging her more and since she requested party makeup I should just charge her that.
And here’s how Reddit users reacted.
This person this person is the a**hole and they just wanted to squeeze more money out of the bride.
And this individual said this makeup artist is nothing but a con artist.
Another Reddit user put it simply: this person is a big time a**hole.
