• A Christmas Nightmare: A Man's Plea for Help
    74 replies, posted
Don't worry, it's not me this is about. One of my subscribers who is a music enthusiast decided to throw away any pride and reach out for help. It's no ordinary "my life sucks" kind of thing, otherwise I wouldn't post it here. (I doubt the video section would care for it) [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgJqh6Qm6G4[/media] People might think they've got it bad, but damn. My heart goes to this man. what's your thoughts?
I'm only about 3 minutes in, but it would really suck to be in his shoes. I feel sorry for him.
Poor fella
Poor guy. I wish I could help him out, but all I really can give is too wish him good luck for the future.
Good thing you posted this, I hope he will get help.
it must feel terrible to be stuck in your house [editline]30th November 2011[/editline] for months that is
Denying bail for that is a pretty dick move...with it being a mental issue and all
[QUOTE=InsanePyro;33511105]Denying bail for that is a pretty dick move...with it being a mental issue and all[/QUOTE] For some reason, I doubt they'll release for probation since the courts over there are heartless.
I really feel bad for this guy, his life is falling down around him.
Frankly I am somewhat surprised that her being on a large dose of adderall was not considered whatsoever, or appeared to have not been considered.
wow, that bites
Dammit, it's like the entire world just got up and started to push down on him.
Holy shit, that [B]sucks.[/B] [editline]4th December 2011[/editline] God I can't imagine how horrible it'd be to be stuck in your house with almost no help whatsoever while all sorts of other shit in your life is falling apart.
I just donated $10 USD and sent him this for the instructions: [release]Hello there! I would just like to say that I hope this 10 dollars helps. It's all i have to spare right now. I had a friend who had a similar predicament to yours. Lost her son, her daughter ran away, husband left her, and then she lost her job. One more thing, if your wondering why the doctor prescribed so much for your wide to take, it was likely so he could make money. My mother works in the medical profession and knows this is often the case, as doctors and almost anyone in the line of healthcare are likely to cheat you out of money. So, I hope you have a Merry Christmas and that things start looking up soon![/release]
I don't know.. remember last year that guy who begged for money because he was poor and his mom or something was in debt? Turned out he just wanted our money and scammed us out of it. but this guy deserves it unlike that guy.
Oh boy, Here we go again. People, Keep up the appearances. Life's not what it is unless there's little problems and imperfections here and there, Things don't always go the way we want but this doesn't mean you have to go bother everyone else with your shit. It's a fact that you have to accept that most of the time other people don't really care and the rest are happy that you have the problems. Even when hes most likely a millionare by the time this post is ready appears on the 5th or 10th page of this thread we should not use the internet to beg for shit regardless of the situation, Nor give the money to those who beg for it. Doing otherwise will cause a new trend to appear which will flood the internet with beggars and those who actually need the money wont get the attention they need. Don't dontate to random people because it makes you feel like a fucking saint, donate to those who have absolutely nothing. And now a personal message to this poor man: Sell your shit, Work on it, Deal with it.

"They need to just get over it and they are evil because they beg." Look, asshole, these people have no choice to be in the situation they're in, and many don't have any reason to be so unfortunate. If you lost all of your shit and were stuck living on subsides, I guarantee you would be begging too. Just let people donate if they want to donate, and if you don't then don't donate. But don't treat people like assholes because they donated to a good cause.

And I do understand what you're saying, but the whole point is that this guy shouldn't just sit there and have to deal with this alone. He has perfect reasoning for doing this and I severely doubt one beggar posting on Youtube is going to bring more beggars. he one guy. Though you're right in one regard, he might very well be swimming in money by now.
[QUOTE=papu2;33571800]No flaming. You fail to see the bigger picture. My post wont stop you from donating, Go ahead. Also been there.[/QUOTE] Donating to one guy won't cause a huge internet begging frenzy. This frenzy is already going on. And hell, no one donates for any other reason than to feel good for helping people. But that's okay. Because it's still helping. Yeah he could be a scammer, but he is around 40 and seems quite sincere. He has shown his face too. I'd say it's unlikely.
its too long of a video,someone want to tell me whats up

It was hard as fuck, but we did it. Though usually those who have nothing have nothing by choice.

He is legally blind so he can't drive, and has 2 kids and 3 cats. Stuck in house since his wife got sent to jail. Wife kicks habit because she is in jail, so there's a plus. Kids making good grades as well, but he hasn't left his house for three months. He needs serious help people. [editline]4th December 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=papu2;33571413]Oh boy, Here we go again.

He can't drive, and he has to provide for pets and two children on half income. This is not a "little imperfection". This is a fuckup he can't control. How do you get your groceries? By driving? He can't. And if he's unlucky enough for there to be more people like you on the internet, he wont be a millionaire. Mission accomplished Sorry for flaming but goddamn

Honestly i couldn't give two shits what some kid thinks and i'm not bothered by people using harsh language, But lets not turn this thread into a banfest. Now, Back to actual replying. What the fuck's wrong with some people? It's like these things are the end of the world to you. I could bet that if you lose your keys you're able to get raped twice on your own frontyard before you get back inside the house. And not being able to drive(comeon, I know plenty of people who don't know how to drive. Most don't even own a car, and they still drive)? What? You want to donate him enough money so he can just call a cab whenever he wants to go to the fucking grocery store? He might be half blind but he has two functional legs, and if he's too stupid to get to the grocery store on foot i'm sure he can take the navigator from the car and glue it on his fucking hand so that he wont lose it. Jesus fucking christ.
I really feel for this guy. I can't say I've ever been in a similar situation and know his pain but it's not too hard to imagine that it would be a really terrible position to be in. I'm about to donate right now.
Does anyone have his address? I want to send him a Christmas card with some money in it.

Jesus, i hope we don't have another LordOfTheFat moment. That guy was an asshole.
I guess you could say that guy is [i]Homestuck[/i] Papu2 is also correct, it's easy to feel bad for people, but you should always take care of yourself before you try to help other people.
