For the record, let me just state that I have no problem freely sharing these pictures and information as he posted it online himself, and all of what I post here is publicly available.
I swear, whenever I start to think that I’ve seen everything, and there’s nothing anyone could do that would surprise me, something like this comes along.
Earlier today I was browsing reddit and came across a post, which has now since been deleted, in the Relationship Advice forum. It was posted by a user named theblakmessiah, and it titled: 14,000 in debt from a leach of a woman and this was the post:
The last 6 months of my life I’ve been with a leach of a girlfriend not having much experience with girls I just kind of let it happen I’ve gotten my self into 14,000 dollars in debt and I’m drowning! Well at least it feels that way! So any one out there want to throw me a dollar or two send it right here:
Also I’ve dumped the leach!
Assuming that he eventually comes to his senses, and shuts that GoFundMe page down thereby rendering the link inoperative, I’ve taken a couple of screenshots of the page, so you can see for yourself:
He also includes the details of his various debts, which includes a bank loan of $7628.80, one credit card which has a $2871.66 balance and another credit card which has a balance of $2965.90, making his total actually $13,466.36
And, for record, I will also say that I was able to identify his ex-girlfriend, the alleged “leach”, on Twitter (where both she and him are still following each other) and Instagram, she has pictures of them together on both and has several posts about the breakup, but since he has not publicly identified her, I will leave her out of it. Plus I don’t see how she’s responsible in any way for this. No matter what he says about her, he’s the one who made the choice every step of the way to spend that money that he didn’t have.
But, seriously, can you believe this shit?!? He is a 23 year old man who, according to his FB page, works at a grocery store. And yet within a period of six months he ran up almost $14,000 of debt, because of some girl. And now he’s mad and blames her, calling her a leach. So not only does he not take responsibility for choosing to spend money that he did not have, now he actually thinks it’s logical to ask strangers to get him out of debt. And why? Because it will take two years for him to pay it off himself (and, frankly, unless he’s expecting a rich relative to die, and factoring in the interest he’s going to be charge on those cards, I’m guessing it’s going to take a lot longer than two years to pay that off), which means, according to him “no going [out] and having fun!”
OH, THE HORROR! This poor guy will actually have to work hard and learn to save and properly manage his money. That requires making better choices and sacrificing. Think of all the FUN he’s going to miss! Come on, people, we have to help him!!!!
I especially love that last line. “Being 23 these are my last 2 years of being free before life gets serious!”
I don’t know where he came up with the arbitrary age of 25 as being when he needs to get serious but, sorry kiddo, you need to get serious right now.
I wonder if I could categorize his attitude as hubris, or is it a form of White privilege, which makes him think he deserved to be bailed out like this? He’s probably honestly shocked that, as of now, his page has been up for 8 hours and no one has donated any money to his noble cause.
