This man just hilariously tweeted his cynical attempt to get a free dessert

It can be said that there's a thin line between con-artistry and good natured blagging.

And while we're still not convinced which side of the spectrum US Twitter user Kyle Baldinger falls on, it's hard not to hand it to him for the chutzpa displayed with this recent stunt.

In response to Elan Gale over getting free dessert by looking sad in a diner, Baldinger attempted just that, live Tweeting his bid to get free dessert in a restaurant by pretending his date (“Jamie”) had stood him up. Dialling up the drama – a cleverly placed second glass, menu turned to the sharing platters, the sad apologetic glances from other diners, faux unanswered phone calls – his play-by-play quest for sympathy made for a brilliant read.

10 points for effort.
