Do you have friends who just seem to be "takers" of everything and everyone? We have this one couple we know who are like this. I guess I'm just not one to take "charity" type of help, when I can afford it! This couple (in their 40's, no kids) we know is constantly trying to get people to do stuff for them or trying to get stuff for free, that should be going to people that need it/can't afford it. Blows my mind.
First off, she as a GREAT job and makes really good money. They just sold their house earlier last year, made a very good profit, moved out of state and bought a much cheaper place because it's such a lower cost of living area. Plus her hubby gets disability pay. They are constantly posting on Facebook looking to get someone to do this or that for them (for free), or needing to borrow this or that, or looking for it for free or super cheap. Ok, all well and good. They don't like to spend their money. But, when they are taking services that other people donated too, in order to help those who can't afford it, I'm not impressed.
They have 2 dogs and a stray founds it's way to their property. They tried to find his owners but no one claimed him, so they decided to keep him. And they just had him neutered. Just found out because she shared the post from their community spay/neuter group. This group - that takes donations, so they can help people, who don't have the money, spay/neuter their pets - paid for this dogs neuter. C'mon....this couple could certainly afford to have this dog neutered, since they decided to keep him! That's going a little too far in the "cheapskateness" in my opinion. And then in the next post her hubby will post a picture of his latest addition to his hobby/collection.
I've got other examples of them doing stuff like this, but this one is the latest and it ranks up there with my GoFundMe pet peeve (I'm not talking about GoFundMe for serious needs)
I like to help people, but not when someone can help themselves first and just use and take advantage of others kindness.
