    I used to work as a freelance writer and hardly got any cash or credit for the advertisements I wrote.The Editor and Senior Writers used my ideas and marked it as their own. I had enough and left .

    This is what happens when you are not extremely skilled and opt for freelancing jobs.

    I could relate to much of this. However, I have never had an issue with payments. I work with an online freelancing site, which does take a fair bit in commission (which hurts) but ensures I always get paid through an escrow system. On the whole, between the life of a cog in the corporate machine and that of a freelancer, I would choose the latter any day. That bit about the mom thinking the guy is just chilling all day is way too real to be even funny, though.

    You forgot to add the part where people ask how much you earn even though I have never heard anyone ask that question to a person in a regular job. Just because I am a freelancer doesn't mean it's any less impolite!
