So this GoFundMe was briefly posted on the Discussing Fitchburg Now Facebook page:
Yes, that’s right. Someone in Winchentucky who evidently has zero shame, posted a GoFundMe asking the general public to pay $5,000 for the down payment on her family’s first home:
Don’t even know where to start on this one. Let’s begin with the likely scenario that this is a scam for the greatest $5,000 crack giveaway party in the history of Winchendon. If you’re in the position where you felt the need to beg for a down payment to purchase your home, then you’re probably not going to get a mortgage from any lenders. Especially when they Google your name and this comes up. So yea, the odds that any money you’d be donating to them would actually be going towards the down payment for a home are slim to none.
Secondly, two parents who both presumably work (LOL) would have to be making less than minimum wage to only be approved for $100,000. And only in Winchentucky could you find a plethora of homes in that price range. According to the Zillow calculator the two of them combined would have to be making $36,000 a year ($18K each) in order to get pre-approved for that amount:
Not only that, but someone in their position would likely qualify for a shitload of FHA programs that would eliminate the need for a down payment of that size.
Oh, and here’s a question that’s kind of important – how are you going to do the necessary upkeep for the house if you have to beg strangers for the $5,000 down payment? What happens when you buy the home and it needs a new roof in a couple years? You gonna start a $10,000 roof GoFundMe? What happens when the boiler goes to shit? You got $7,500 buried in your favorite Winchentucky rape van?
This just goes back to this bullshit that’s been peddled by politicians and the Worcester Housing Authority that everyone someone has a right to own a home. You don’t. Rights don’t cost money. Rights are free. Houses cost money. If you cannot afford to buy a house then you rent one. Welcome to grownup world.
The post lasted about 16 minutes before an admin took it down, but the commentary was exactly what you expected it would be when a Winchentucky gutterslug Internet panhandles for a new home on Facebook:
Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Personally, I don’t trust anyone who feels the need to upload a new selfie as their profile picture every other week.
Ya know what the saddest part about this is? The fact that she feels no shame in doing this. She posted this and thought it was perfectly normal. This is the society we’ve created by worrying about people’s feelings. No one has any shame or humility any more because we are required to care about your feelings. We need to bring back shame and humiliation. The fear of being shamed and humiliated used to keep people honest. Even during the Great Depression there were guys holding signs like this:
They even teach it on Power Points in high school:
Asking for charity was something to be ashamed of. As it should be. There was a time when someone who needed $5,000 would just work a few more hours, or find a second job, or cancel cable and put the thermostat on 62. But that would require personal responsibility. We got rid of that shit a long, long time ago. Instead we’ve raised a generation of Karyssa Grennon’s who couldn’t possibly imagine a world in which they wouldn’t have HBO. Why should they give that up? They should be able to have that AND own a home. Because….it’s no fair!!
These people have no idea how ridiculous they look when they post stuff like this. Because as she pointed out, you are “judging” her if you point out how shameless it is to Internet panhandle for your first home:
Well, Turtleboy doesn’t follow those rules. We’re bringing shame and humiliation back. You might not like it at first, but at the end of the day you’ll be a better person for it. Because clearly Karyssa was planning on getting through life by begging her way out of financial troubles that she could fix herself. Now she knows that she doesn’t have to rely on the charity of others for her own self-determination.
P.S. The Discussing Fitchburg Now Facebook page is ratchet/blog material central right now, and the miracle is that none of it involves he who shall not be named.
