Delivery Scam

Dear Schnorrer, I live off campus with a bunch of my fraternity brothers.  We order Chinese food every once in a while.  Tom usually orders the food.  A couple of days ago, Tom was studying so I ordered the food.  When the food arrived we got a complimentary can of soda as well as dumplings [...]

5 Reasons to Befriend a College Student

Let’s face it: you and your crew of fellow college grads are over frat house keggers, having traded them in for rooftop bars. Yet despite how, crude, obnoxious, and clueless about the “real” work you find college kids-and trust me, if you’re still attending you’ll share this sentiment once you graduate- the benefits of adopting [...]

Destination Weddings

Dear Schnorrer, My brother and his fiance are planning a destination wedding in  Costa Rica. They are expecting 50 guests to attend. However, they  have informed me that their guest list is 375 people.  I think this is inappropriate, since most of these people will not  be able to make the trip. The list  includes [...]

Why You Need to Learn To Cry

Sorry, boys… but this one’s for the ladies, and no, girls, it doesn’t have anything to do with showing a bit of cleavage (though I’ve got nothing against worming your way into a free drink with a well-placed neckline). I’m talking about brushing up on your acting skills, more specifically, crying. Crying can get you [...]

The Revenge of the Schnorrer

Recently, The Schnorrer was sitting in a subway car, minding his own business, looking at his fellow riders and marvelling at the great variety of humanity created by the Almighty.  A burly man got on the train and sat next to The Schnorrer.  He didn’t just sit, however.  He spread his legs and squirmed, forcing [...]

Customer Service Department:Corporate Schnorrer

To say the corporation is the schnorrer’s best friend may seem a truism hardly worth elaborating. Its customer-is-always-right attitude and its affinity for “writeoffs” are a godsend to the freeloader. But to reach the large bills in companies’ ample wallets, the schnorrer knows you have to move beyond the storefront to the generous bureaucratic bosom [...]

When the Schnorrer says:”HELLO!”

Dear Schnorrer: I went on a dinner date last night with this guy who I thought was a real mensch.. When the bill came, I noticed that the waiter had accidentally given us the wrong bill–it was half the price it should have been.  Before I could say a word, my date paid the bill [...]
