I rarely use this word here, but that is taaaccckkkkyyyy.  People can debate about honeyfunds all day long, but if someone decides to use one and shares that info with invited guests, that’s fine.  Broadcasting it to FB friends is over the line.  If that person was my friend and I felt like being a smartass, I’d probably respond by saying that God also put them on earth to earn a living to pay for their own honeymoon.

@anongirl89:  God put me on this earth to help people IN NEED, not people who just want a few rounds of free drinks and expensive meals on my dime.

She’s super tacky. And kind of pathetic.

Ugh.  I just vented yesterday about a post my brother and his wife shared on facebook.  It’s a GoFundMe page to collect money for a “virtual baby shower” but there is not an actual baby shower.  And it’s not even an actual registry.  I could go on (and on and on) but I properly vented yesterday so I’m not going to dwell on it.  But yes, there are some T to the ACKY people on facebook.

omg that sounds like some horrible commercial for her wedding.  I’d probably ask “Just checking if we contribute to your fund does that get us automatic invite to your wedding?” just to see her answer lol.

I’m usually more lax about some of these things.  I mean that it usually doesn’t annoy me as much when other people do them, if I think they are either a little naive or at least trying to have a bit of decency about it haha.  I didn’t do a honeyfund, and I would never have done it myself on fb.

That being said… her WORDING is just…. I want to SMACK. HER.  You want to try to raise funds on FB for your local American Cancer Society Relay for Life?  Great!  I think thats a wonderful cause, dedicated to other people fighting cancer. You want to try to raise funds on FB because you feel ENTITLED to a honeymoon?  Eff you.  You’re not entitled to something like that!!!!  It’s one thing to have a honeyfund instead of a big registry of items and have family members sort of spread the word around (that’s a-ok in my book) but this… this makes me angry.

And it might backfire on her lol.

She sounds annoying and entitled. I’m sure no one will actually donate as a result of her facebook post, I sure wouldn’t.

Donate?!

She’s not a cancer patient, and her honeyfund is not chemo!

@anongirl89:  Bleh. I would find it annoying, but nothing to be super-offended about. I wouldn’t feel obligated to give money to her.

@anongirl89:  She should just get a tin cup and hang out on a street corner if she wants to beg.

 How embarrassing for her.

No. No. No.  Just No.

This is so incredibly rude.  I don’t like the concept of a honeyfund to begin with, but this takes it to a whole new level of inappropriate.
