bite me, freeloader
So I just got an email from this guy saying that he would donate to my site if I linked to his. I am not in the business of linking for donations, but I went and looked at his site anyhow.
Sigh. Just another spendthrift who got himself into debt and wants the world to pay it off for him.
I had a ton of debt too, buddy. I worked my ass off to pay it all off. Some of it wasn't even mine, but piles of unpaid bills my ex left me. Never once did I expect anyone else, let alone total strangers, to pay my debts for me.
Get a second job. Get a third job. Get off the internet and pay some bills yourself.
"I just want to own the roof over my head, and feed the family I hope one day to have.
The way things look now, because of the mistake I made when I was 18, I wonít be able to even begin living my little dream until Iím 35!"
Hey, I'm 40 and still don't own the roof over my head. Living my dream? That's going to have to wait until my kids' college tuition is saved for.
Your dollar can help my dream come true. Where else can a dollar buy you that?!
In my own freaking bank, where my hard-earned dollars are going to make my dream come true.
You know what my dream is? That people like you would get off their asses and be a contributing member of society instead of a parasite. I didn't get to partake of all those cds and books you bought with your credit cards, so why should I pay for them?
Now a dollar is not a lot of money. Your Sunday paper probably costs twice that. But every dollar off my debt cuts a few hours off my punishment. It means Iíll have to wait fewer years before I can begin to live like everyone else.
By everyone else do you mean people who live in the upper tax brackets or do you mean regular, every day kind of people like me who live from check to check and work hard just to maintain some kind of normal life? You know, the people who go to work each day, put food on the table for their families and don't sit down to their computer at night in an effort to beg total strangers to pay off their debt.
Piss off. If a dollar could buy you a clue, you would still need millions to get it.
