Yesterday we posted this story about a young woman from Westfield who was trying to raise $7,000 for a Worcester panhandler so he can have an apartment that he can use to hide from his girlfriend, who steals all his panhandling money and spends it on crack.
This is easily the dumbest thing we’ve ever seen. This poor girl, who obviously means well, just isn’t very smart. And she has absolutely no street smarts. The homeless guy she’s raising money for is named Thomas Matier:
According to her, he PROMISED that he doesn’t do drugs anymore. But this dang girlfriend of his keeps stealing his cash and spending it on crack. Don’t you hate when that happens? Well if this girl had done even the most basic amount of research she would have found this:
He’s been a criminal and a drug user his entire life. This is just who he is at this point. Smart people understand that, but poor Maddie Barcomb just isn’t that smart. She posted on our Facebook page today:
You had a long talk with him? HAHAHHAHAHHAHAHA!!! Looks like this 20 year old girl has life all figured out. Well, in that case, he MUST have been telling the truth. It’s not like he looked at your blonde ass and thought, “I’m gonna tell this idiot exactly what she wants to hear because she might be dumb enough to give me more money.” The homeless drug addicted panhandler said something, therefore it’s the truth.
Oh honey, you poor thing. Let’s suppose you do actually raise $7,000. That’s not actually gonna do anything, as this guy pointed out:
Do you understand how renting works? You can’t rent out an apartment that you’re not living in if the guy you’re vouching for has spent more time in the Worcester Courthouse than Tony Salerno. That’s not how any of this works.
Look, I understand this girl means well, but ultimately her good intentions are worth shit. Giving this guy an apartment to get high in for free is like giving a gun to a suicidal man for self defense. You’re ultimately responsible when he dies because you enabled it. You’re not a good a person. But you’re doing this because you want all of us to think that you are. If you’re feeling generous, then pay the $7,000 grand yourself instead of begging other people for it and then taking the credit. Because that’s all you’re doing with this GoFundMe scam.
