Some People Fucking Annoy Me!

Controversial Content

I hope the title didn't scare you, I actually like a few people, not many, but a few. Of those few, none of them annoy me... often. Sometimes, well sometimes they do. If you know me personally, I very easy to get along with, and I don't anger very easily. I am passionate about some things, and I can get angered about those things at times.

Now I guess I should explain my title. We had a guy move in next door... well right across the hall from us about 6 months after we moved in here. He's not a bad guy, a little dense if you ask me, but one of those people who seem to think the world owes him a living. Let me give you an example. he considers himself a paranormal investigator, and has decided he is going to profit from this "career". So he goes on Facebook and sets up a donation page, these donations are for him to buy equipment to investigate. I had asked him if he had any equipment already, and he said no. So he is starting a "business" and wants others to put up the money for him.

Today, he had a new donation page put on Facebook, this one was for money for a used car. Yup, he wants a used car so he can travel to Toronto to visit his family when he wants too. I'm expecting a new page soon, that is if he gets enough for a used car, this one will be for gas money!

So, for some reasons unbeknownst to myself, when I saw his latest donation page, bells and whistles and sirens went off in my head. I felt he was trying to take advantage of peoples kindness and left a comment on his page, Are You Out Of Your Fucking Mind? So far he hasn't sent a reply, and it's probably a good idea if he doesn't.

I have no problem donating money to people who really need it. I also have no problem with people setting up a Go Fund Me page. I just pass those by, because many of those pages are scams as far as I am concerned. The donation tab in Facebook is basically set up for charity events and purposes, and I can't justify wanting a used car, or paranormal equipment as a charity event or purpose.

This post was created on the new site I am going to be opening soon. This is a test site, which I created as a sub-domain on my personal site. The site I will be opening will be just as the test site is, except it will have a few more functions, and a different host.

I will be sending invitations to a few people in the next few days... basically I need a few guinea pigs to try it and see if they can break it. If they can't, well, I'm on my way. I still have a lot of work to do, and the platform I'm using has a bit of a learning curve. I'm not happy about the blog platform so much, although it is what the basic WordPress sites come with. It is easy to use, and you are able to place different types of media into posts. Pics, videos, and audio.

If you don't get an invite, it isn't because I don't like you... well I mightn't like you, but that isn't the reason. I just need a few people to do some testing, and anything they post I will be telling them if it is of value, to make a back up copy of it, because once the testing is done, I will be setting up the new site elsewhere, and any info on the test site will be deleted.

The reason being since it is a sub-domain on my site, it is taking up room on my Host gator database. Oh, and the new site will not be hosted by Host gator. I will be using Siteground. The platform will be BuddyPress, and the membership part will be Youzer.

Have a great Day Everyone!

LOL...I love the mightn't like you or not. Funny. 

My youngest son and his outlaw family love gofundme pages. At least my youngest son's wife does work hard~~ she doesn't go on FB and ask for $$$. I have learned to donate out of my pocket to her when she has come to visit. That I do not mind.

 

On another site I fequent, there is this one person who keeps opening accounts in different names... all of her posts are links to GoFund Me pages she has set up to bilk people out of their money. She doesn't like me much... but then I have had many of her accounts shut down. 

Good for you.

I will not donate online to anybody for anything unless I am very familiar with a person's situation. One of my nieces set up a go fund me page to help pay her hospital emergency room bill. She has a huge deductible on her health insurance. I would have donated for that except she makes enough money to have some savings and would have if she gave up eating out at McDonalds all the time. Then there's all the trips to go entertaining places and let's not forget all the parties she absolutely has to host. I'll keep my money, thanks.

she sounds like a real dilly...

Yes, he is f-ing crazy LOL.   Just stopping in to say Hello xo{#floating.gif}

Well I'm glad you did drop in, I miss you when I don't see you around! {#clap.gif}{#giveflowers.gif}
