Seriously, FB should just be abolished. Ok, not really but sometimes it seems like it does more harm than good. I went to high school with this girl (lets call her Sue). We had mutual friends but we never really hung out together outside of the group. Sue ended up marrying this guy who she wasn’t even dating (weird situation) and they moved down south to where he was stationed. They ended up having a baby a few years ago and unfortunately their son is blind.
They’re in the process of raising money for some procedure that will apparently restore his sight. In order to raise the money, they’ve been having numerous benefits for him (spaghetti dinners, 50/50’s, pancake breakfasts, community stuff, etc). Well, after one of the recent benefits Sue took to her FB to thank those that showed up. She also went on a completely inappropriate rant saying something along the lines of “I guess I know who my real friends are. To those who didn’t show up, I hope something like this happens to your family and you find out what it’s like to not be supported”. This chick expects every single person she knows to take time out of their busy lives to go to benefits for her kid. It’s not like they schedule these things at convenient times either. I just could not believe the audacity. I know for a fact that by her saying those things, she lost quite a bit of donations to her sons cause. Sorry, but I flat out refuse to support someone who has that attitude and I know I’m not alone.
I’m not normally one to judge how others spend their money but they recently bought 2 brand new, pricey cars. She gets tattoos all the time and they’re constantly posting pictures of their vacations they go on. It makes my blood boil. If you’re accepting charity, then you should be putting as much of your own money as possible into the pot. I’m sure having a child with special needs is difficult, but it is not an excuse to treat others like crap just because they missed one of his overpriced benefits ($50 per head for a plate of spaghetti, no f’ing way!).
I don’t really know why I posted this, guess I just needed to bitch about it.
ETA: Oh, I also heard that she was complaining about the amount of money she received from another fundraiser. Every year our school district raises money for people in the community who need things (motorized wheelchairs, medical bills paid, transplants, etc..). Last year her son was a recipient and they received almost $15K. She was upset that they “only” received that much since the fundraiser raised a great deal of money. This money has to be split between about a dozen recipients and foundations. Because of the way she acted, she’ll never be a recipient again. Makes me sick that she’s so ungrateful!
