    This Guy Submits Increasingly Whacky Invoices To Get His Salary Every Month... And It Works

    I mean, for now.

    This is Aniket Rao, a Mumbai-based freelance filmmaker, who currently works a lot with talent management agency Only Much Louder.

    And for the last year or so, he's been sending some pretty wacky and weird invoices. Like this one where he explains the need for his monthly wages through inflation.

    And his boss, coworkers, friends all kinda expect him to do it every month now.

    "I do it for kicks. I got pissed off one day when I saw these finance guys getting into multiple 'mera paisa kab aayega' type arguments and they're hardworking people who do a thankless job, so I stopped sending emails that said 'PFA invoice' and started sending them fun emails on why I need that money. It brought them two minutes of entertainment and for me, it worked out as an easy way to separate my invoice from the others to ensure that I get my money on time," Rao told BuzzFeed.

    In one he attached this video just to show how "gareeb" he is.

    "Hey Guys,

    The year has almost ended and instead of sending you a long email, I want to send you a simple video to show off my financial situation.

    Please watch this sad and touching video. Zyaada mat rona, please.

    PS: Invoice Attached."

    Rao explained that he doesn't really think about what to send as an invoice. "My girlfriend was coming back from a big long trip so she sent me a shopping list. I sent that to them."

    "Good Day,

    I have herewith attached my invoice. It would be fantastic if you would release my money immediately because I have many things to buy.



    Sometimes he uses his mother to gain the sympathy of his boss.

    "Hello friends,

    Today I tell you the story of my mother.

    My mother's birthday is tomorrow on 29th of August. She is not my sister. lol.

    She is my mother and she likes mangoes as you can see in this picture.

    I am going to buy her a peti pack of 2 dozen mangoes imported from China. But these gifts require money. And that's why I come to you.

    Please help me buy mangoes for my mother.

    Thank You,

    Jai Hind

    Jai Maharashtra

    Happy Onam

    Happy My Amma's Birthday."

    His most intense project so far has been this video invoice, in which he has gone absolutely HAM.

    After sending the video invoice, Rao said: "I got paid in 8 hours time. Never in the history of my existence has that happened."

    Probably every company Rao has ever worked for:
