An exchange shared this week on Reddit between an artist who goes by Krafty Katt and a total jerk who seems to think she should make him a huge blanket practically for free went viral — and with good reason. This guy is absolutely over-the-top rude, ignorant, and verbally abusive. He needs to be called out.

The prospective customer messages Katt asking if she does commissions. Apparently she didn’t answer fast enough to please His Highness, so he bitched about that first. Then, he got real specific about fancy stitches and yarn quality, oh, and he also wants this blanket to be really big.

But he doesn’t want to pay big money. Naturally.

When she states her price of $400, half paid upfront and half upon completion, he responds, “Are you for real?” He then reminds her he can always go to Walmart, and she was all “go for it” and I was all YOU ARE MY HERO.

And because she’s a much bigger person than I am, she even bothered explaining to him the reason the blanket would cost what she stated.

The asshole does some quick math and figures out the yarn “only” costs $160, so why the $400 price tag? He also tells her to bargain hunt for cheaper yarn because “craft stores are always having sales.”

She explains that the remaining cost is for her time, because hello, that shit isn’t free. He tells her she’s charging too much and this is when my head officially exploded.

Again, in words far kinder than I could’ve mustered, she explains to this bag of dicks that even at $400, the hours it will take means she’s making a whopping $2 an hour. He then claims other crocheters could make it for “so much cheaper.” She tells him to have at it, but he isn’t happy to be told no and continues to tell her she’s insane while giving some sob story about his sick girlfriend (and if he actually has a girlfriend, sweetheart, blink twice, we will save you) which apparently means he thinks Katt should make the blanket as some kind of charitable project.

She tells him she doesn’t care if he puts her out of business, as he claims he will do, and explains that even if he had any power, it’s not a business anyway. She crochets as a hobby and has a day job. She takes on commissions only occasionally and therefore, wants to be paid for her time. As she should.

He lands one more “fuck you” and Katt gives him her final offer — “I’ll do it for $800.”

This woman is seriously a queen.
