Honesty...

Just like the title says!

Honesty...

Postby DMS Tech Team » Fri Dec 30, 2011 10:37 pm

So my newest client that just signed me to a really big fucking contract sent me my first payment. It was supposed to be just a little one, as it was just for a test article and a days worth of researching. I was supposed to get $232.50, but the accidentally sent me $412.50.

I doubt they even noticed it, but me, being the honest fucking person I am, emailed them to alert them of the error or to see if they sent me the extra $180 for something else.

My question is should I have just kept my fucking mouth shut or did I do it right? I am in a pretty big financial pinch, but I feel awful if I take something I didn't earn. Hell, I accidentally took a random person;s pen a week ago and felt like a piece of shit for days lol. To the point that I almost went back to the place I got the pen and returned it to the girl. :roll: :roll: :roll:

FYI, they haven't responded to my email yet. Probably won't until the 2nd.

Besides your conscience, what happens if he does figure it out, ya know? Maybe my morals suck, but if DMS sent me extra money, I'd be like "Fuck you assholes for everything you've done" and keep it. I wouldn't feel guilty at all. If a small shop guy sent me too much, I'd definitely give it back. I'd feel like a dick if I didn't.

Yeah, I know. I think pretty much anyone would fuck over DMS if given a chance. :lol:

It's kinda interesting to me that DMS is such a young company and yet so many people despise them. Their editors, writers, readers, other webmasters, the industry and even some of their ex IT staff. There are so many people who would love to see that place burn to the ground. I totally understand why. They have treated so many people poorly and done some shady stuff to others (we basically lift and rewrite others content, and if you don't, you won't get paid, so we're forced to plagiarize basically).

You did the right thing.

In my early 20s, I was overpaid by about $400. Like a young and dumb idiot, I thought, "Hey -- free money!" And spent it. Two weeks later, when the next payday came around, I was asked to return the $400 that mistakenly was paid to me. I felt like a complete fool when I had to tell them I had to make two monthly payments. I guess I was lucky I didn't get fired over it.
You can't always get what you want. But if you try sometime, you just might find, you get what you need.

Okay, crisis over. Turns out it was a legit payment, they just paid me earlier than expected for work I did last week, which I was not figuring on getting payment for until mid-January. Phew.

So, you've got a win/win here. They know you are conscientious and honest, and you know they pay up without a fight. You each see the other as a 'keeper.'
