So I got a text from SSTurtleMom yesterday about this Gofundme that showed up on the Brockton Hub.
Seems some Brockvegas all-star, named Ashley Tukis, dropped $1500 on an ATV for her eight year-old only to have it stolen out of their backyard.
In Brockton, you say? Stolen? Shit. That’s a shocker.
Some bleeding-hearts chipped in and donated the amount they “needed” to replace the frivolous item.
One guy, named John Nathan, who hates Turtleboy Sports and everything we stand for, even though we think he’s a stand up dude, dropped more than $1k to fill the e-coffer.
However, SSTurtleMom stuck to her guns, and low and behold, she was right. But the Brockton Hub Honey Badgers, infamous for their no fucks given approach to Interneting, smelled a con.
You’ve got to remember, nobody lives in Brockton because it’s a perfect place to raise a family. No one is loaded. Well, unless you’re living down near Thorny Lea Golf Course in a family-owned estate that’s been passed down since the city was flush with shoe money. Most of us couldn’t dream of dropping that kind of cash on our kids. We struggle. How can this stale wench ask US to buy your kid a new present because she failed to secure it?
Your child’s happiness IS luxury. Try telling that to kids who got nothing.
It seems the ATV was returned “damaged.” But it was how it was damaged that really read off the charts on the bullshit meter.
Apparently someone, doing 60 MPH down the residential street, picked up the a 400lbs ATV and threw it out of the flatbed and in to a yard.
Stop laughing, I know. It’s totally ludicrous.
The Tukis family refused to show graphic pictures of the damaged quad, present the receipt for how much it initially cost, as most ATV in it’s size range go for a fraction of what she was asking, and lambasted anyone who dare question them. Even going as far as to call people “retards” for challenging their integrity. Stay classy, panhandlers.
Ashley initially said the GFM was started by some random dude and passed it over to her. No, she started it. It says so on the GFM page. Go look it up if you don’t believe me. I’m not linking that bogus thing here.
Manny Moniz, resident super troll and gruff humanitarian, was the first one to start the bonfire.
Others soon followed.
Apparently, after fixing the “mangled” ATV which she said needed a new engine and tires, it was going to a family that had lost everything in a house fire in town.
That’s so nice of you Tukis family! Really? After taking the handouts to fix or replace the exorbitant gift most of us couldn’t afford if we tried, that isn’t even remotely close to being a necessity, you’re going to hand what’s left over to a family who lost everything? The family of four that is in the hospital with everything they own turned in to a pile of cinders? Yeah, thanks for looking out. You’re really selfless. Assholes.
That’s where all that money should have gone in the first place. To a family that needs it. A family who has nothing.
But I forgot, nothing is more important than your own kid on Christmas.
Here, try donating to something that actually matters:
Oh, and of course we had a couple Turtleriders wonder when we were showing up. Hey guys. Merry Christmas. If you see something down on the Dirty South Shore that needs our attention -Message Turtleboy Sports on FB or Email SSTG Here!
