I really hate it when people use their kids on these GoFundMe pages. Because no one would give a grown, abled-bodied woman money for a car on their own, so she’s gotta use her kid to get that sympathy cash. Ya know, since we all paid for our own cars. Like adults.
But as you can see, it’s working. Somehow this chick has raised over $1,300 for…..a car. She says she lives in a town with no public transportation and there is only one car in her “household.” She doesn’t say who she lives with, or what town she lives in, and thus no one can offer her any alternative solutions. Just cash please.
She also says she wants a car so she can get a job, go to school, and put her kid in school. So apparently whatever town she lives in does not have free public schooling. We just don’t know what that town is. She says she’s from Rehoboth, but yet here she is moving to Houston a couple months ago:
Why Houston? For this guy of course:
Oh yea, that man right there is a weapon of ass destruction!! Well worth moving 2,000 miles from home for.
According to her just two months ago, this is her fiance. So why can’t he help her out? He sprung for a ring but he can’t help her out with a car? This is everything that is wrong with the wedding industrial complex. We value a worthless rock more than we do a vehicle that has actual utility. It can get you places. A ring sits there and does nothing. But apparently that was more important.
Anyway, I’m sure it’s not cheap to fly to Houston on the regular, but she had plenty of money for plane tickets:
So she can afford to fly to Houston in early May, and then again in June. Keep in mind she’s not working during the time, nor is she really looking for a job. And it doesn’t look like the kid came to Houston with her. She can afford to do all of this but she wants you to buy her a car and is using her daughter to guilt you into it. Sure thing hun.
Oh, and she’s got plenty of money for her and the hubbie to go to Blink 182 concerts:
And gun tittoos:
And the “fiance” has plenty of cash for new boots for her:
And here’s the best part – he was trying to get rid of a car on June 23:
You can’t make this stuff up.
Maybe they broke up after she had already put all her eggs in his basket. Who knows. She did post this less than a month ago:
But two days later she changed her profile picture, and comments like this started to appear:
So it looks like that’s the end of that love story. But when she was in Houston, it looks like she left her daughter she cares so much behind:
September? You were willing to go that long without seeing your kid because you wanted to play Dear John with some chudstuffer in Houston? Oh, and then you guys broke up. Yea, she seems like a woman who’s got her priorities in line. In the picture it says that Melanie Lacroix has her kid. Who is Melanie? That would be Mom:
She’s not a regular Mom though. She’s a cool Mom.
Remember what she said in her GoFundMe?
“I don’t have friends or family who live close by to help. I don’t have any family or friends to help babysit or cart us around.”
Yet Melanie lives in nearby Fall River:
And her grandmother lives in nearby Taunton:
These women who babysat her kid for months while she pursued a childish cross country relationship all of a sudden cannot give her a ride somewhere. Nor can she move in with them. Because that would be the responsible thing to do. Oh yea, her story checks out.
Editor’s Note: The child was staying with the father while she was in Houston.
But since she’s moved back to Rehoboth she’s had plenty of time, money, and transportation to get her tongue pierced:
According to Angelea she’s been “trying my hardest to make the best decisions possible for myself and my daughter.” Ummmm….no you haven’t. You’ve actually been making a series of terrible financial decisions for yourself and your daughter. You’re very interested in playing cross country lovebirds, but becoming financially independent? Nah.
She also says, “I want to show my daughter that She can look up to me.” And what better way to set a good example for your daughter than to panhandle for a free car on the Internet?
Oh, and you know you’re running a shady GoFundMe when you have to throw in this at the end: “If anyone has any negative things to say, there’s enough negativity in the world and I’m embarrassed enough to even ask this of anyone, let’s put the negativity aside for a change.”
Ya know who puts disclaimers like that on their GoFundMe? People who know they’re gonna get negative feedback because their GFM is a scam.
Look, we’ve profiled much worse people than her in our GoFundMe scams. But we really can’t stand digital panhandling like this because these people think society always owes them something. Just like a lot of turtle riders I work my ass off to take care of my family. I don’t make purchases I can’t afford to make. I budget my income. I don’t spend money on stupid shit when I have ESSENTIALS that I need to buy first. Ya know, like a car. I also can’t afford to just abandon my kids for months at a time to pursue a childish love interest in Texas. Then I open the Turtleboy inbox and I get a story like this and my blood boils. The tipping point for me is how she’s using her kid to score pity cash. The same kid she left in Massachusetts while she was getting her canoe shellacked in Houston.
Yea, we’ll pass on this one Angelea. Buy your own car and be a responsible adult if you really wanna set a good example for your daughter.
