I’m not really one for online communities, so generally I just stay away from those threads where people are requesting help in an emergency, or hugs after a disaster, etc etc. Life can be tough, and if people want to help others then more power to them.
But seriously Lute Skywatcher, what the fuck? When I saw your thread title I assumed you were about to lose your house, or needed a life saving operation or something. You know, something important. Nope. Instead you want money to fix the fucking air conditioning.
And then you indicated that your newborn baby was suffering in the heat. After all, the dope is full of cutesy baby names,** Lucky bunny** fits right in. Wait a second! Hold the phone, thats not a baby, you are actually talking about an actual fucking rabbit!
You are begging for money because your fucking rabbit is too hot!!!
Oh it gets better. I particularly liked this bit:
I’m no rocket surgeon, but, heres a funky idea. How about working some overtime for the next three months, see if that covers it? If you recently lost your job then ok, that doesn’t apply, but for fucks sake if you are still working surely starting to save now comes before begging on the internet? Besides which, why is this your brothers fault? Do you need him to fold your loo roll too, why couldn’t you look at your own fucking furnace?
As I say, generally its no odds to me who people donate their money to, but for some reason this really chapped my ballsack. I would like to think that if somebody had to go to the point of asking strangers online for money that it would be because they had reached their last resort, that their reason for asking was so important that they had no other option. Then, when you do see a request thread you know that this is a genuine cry for help, there is no suspicion involved, you help somebody in need.
Creating a thread like this runs contrary to that. Skywatcher isn’t in dire need, he is just worried about his;
Skywatcher isnt at the end of his tether, in fact he even has a back up just in case the dopers don’t pony up enough dough.
Sounds like some savings to me, and by all thats fucking holy, if you have savings Lute Skywatcher than damn sure you should not be on here looking for handouts. If there is information I am not aware of then fair enough, I will apologise, but as I see it this situation is a load of cock, and the mods should not have allowed it.
