    Funny story I just remembered about freelancers on oDesk. So back in 2012, my odesk account started to autoreply "test" to every message freelancers would send, like instantly. So you can imagine how this went... I had these crazy conversations of freelancers thinking of replies to "test". It turns out, oDesk messages can be sent via email and I apparently was setting up an autoresponder sometime and forgot to turn it off in an inactive email account. Some of them are pretty comical. The responder is so persistent and beats them at their own persistent begging game of "Can I have a job plssss." Imagine if I set this to like "Show me a better sample."

    Okay I'm sick of pasting them lol. The point is, this goes on for tons of jobs for like half a year.

    My favorite. This one really had to cause some grief... wouldn't you give up after 3?

    He finally gave up hah. It's fun things in the workplace like this that keep my oDesk profile at a perfect 5 stars.
