Default Gonfundme BS...

WTF is up with people asking for money for themselves on this gofundme site ? Some newbie on another car site posted a gofundme request so he could build his car.(that didn't go over well with the old timers over there.
This week a girl I know posted one on Facebook asking for money to help pay for her adoption fees. WTFFFFFFF. Does this generation not have any effing clue what working for stuff is ? "Overtime" people!, look it up.
As an aside, I take no issue with others doing fund raising for people truly in need. People in the country (and this site) can be truly generous. I just don't understand these people that ask for themselves.

We had a neighbor recently put flyers on doors in the neighborhood for her gofundme sight to pay for her dogs vet bills. I have a soft heart when it comes to animals but just can't see asking all my neighbors to help pay for my pet's vet bills.

I boil over with rage when OSU or UTA call asking for donations for scholarships.

I paid for both my damn degrees.

I've never really looked at the site. I'm assuming they take a percentage to "manage" the fundraiser ?

Everyone doesn't wanna work for shit anymore. They just want it handed to them. All these facebook for sale groups is full of people that just want a steal and not a good deal anymore. It's getting annoying seeing people low ball the shit out of peoples ads constantly. Shit like that used to be considered rude and now it's the norm
