I really don't care how hard up you are.

If you are able to make a post on a momsite to beg for money, then you are able to use google to look up resources in your area.

You are a grown ass adult (presumably if you are a mother) figure out how to be responsible and independant for your OWN LIFE.

I have been so poor I picked fruit off the trees in a mall parking lot ffs.  I can't even tell you the lengths I had to go to make it through one period of my life.  

And yet I did it.  I came through it.  And not once did I go on a random discussion forum and beg for money from strangers.

Yes, sometimes we need a hand out, there are organizations for just that.  Use google to look them up instead of begging on a mom site.


End of rant.

Hold on!

You picked fruit off a tree in a mall parking lot?  What type of fruit because I am genuinely curious as to what type of fruit tree can grow in a parking lot...and how healthy that fruit would be after being gassed out by the exhaust on cars.

It was plums lol

They wouldn't be affected by the cars anymore than trees grown in someone's yard by a road with heavy traffic, I'm not sure they would be affected at all in any case.

First I have never read a post where someone is begging. They make post and vent other people offer help that isn't begging.

I'm with you, but I just assume someone thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. 

I just saw on FB where a good friend has set up a gofundme for her wedding.  I'm pretty disappointed in her for that, but I realize that people have no shame anymore.

People do post begging.  One just got poofed actually.

Just because you've never seen something doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

And I don't respond to them, I simply report them and move on.  I can't have an opinion about it?

I guess it the new "panhandling"
I've never seen a mom ask for money here.

But I have seen women on Facebook asking for guys to take them something to eat at work or take them on a date.
It was pathetic

Funny since I've been on here all morning and I haven't seen It. And it isn't your business.
