Artists and writers are used to people undervaluing their work, either because they're entitled, or they simply don't comprehend what they're asking for in terms of labor. But how can you argue over the cost of food? A caterer named Onequa shared a conversation she had with a woman about a proposed wedding meal that shows people are always trying to get more than they deserve for as little as possible.

She shared the screenshot of a text conversation on Twitter, and it starts out normal. The woman she's speaking with is the god daughter of the woman getting married, apparently stepping in as a wedding planner. She asks for a number of dishes, including an omelette station, wing station, and waffle station for a breakfast/brunch meal. She mentions three different types of fish, too. This lady wants it all!

Onequa very reasonably quotes $5,000 for 200 people, which brings all that to down below $30 a head. Remember, she is buying all the materials and cooking everything. The woman comes back at her with some insults about her presence on Instagram, then tries to lowball her. It's wild!

You want all that and cupcakes, too, for $2,100! And they're some good looking cupcakes:

You need to pay for all the flavors, luv.

People are really blown away by how Onequa's work was undervalued by these women, and they just can't get over it:

You cannot cater a wedding for "exposure."

Also, her rate was reasonable??? People with wedding (and math) experience said this woman blew the deal of her life on that wedding buffet:

On the bright side, people are loving Onequa's story so much they're sending her some pocket cash:

So, she didn't get to cater someone's last minute wedding. Instead, she gets the support of the Internet for valuing herself. And giving us some hilarious text messages to scream over. That is definitely worth $28 a head.
