If most are well beyond their teen-age years, they need to grow up a bit. I've scrimped for my
passions (yes, plural) since I was 10 years old. This e-begging thing was just an idea that was born
out of boredom. It was meant to be light-hearted - certainly not an afront to those who work hard
for everything they own as I have. Don't be angry that you didn't think of it first. Don't
partcipate if you don't like it. I even welcome those to tell me if they don't like it. But please
be civil about it. Abusive language never got anybody anything but disrespect from their pears. It
honestly shows a serious lack of education. This is a public service announcement: Increase your
vocabulary beyond four-letter words. Who knows? Maybe you'll be able to land a job that makes it to
where you don't have to scrimp as much.
Don't worry. I'll conform. I'll be sure to kick the next friend that tries to bum a quarter off of
me and tell him to get a f**king job. Oh, and I'll NEVER top-post again. Heaven forbid that anybody
would ever top-post.
The world could use less whining. I'm out.
