Yea right. I have a friend who would tell you otherwise... Her Ivy-leagued educated husband still turned out to be a dead-beat.

You said her husband is Ivy-League educated, but you didn't say having a Masters degree or higher.

[quote=WaterRain;24931689]Any other country, including America?

Why did you have kids with a deadbeat?[/quote]

He wasn't a deadbeat until we divorced, of course.


Oh and until he met Ms.PlaytheSystem who taught him her evil ways.

People do change, you know.

The fact that I am not an American but have lived here for almost 5 years since I got married to an American. I am so homesick to to visit family/friends but dont have money for tickets. My husband earn small barely enough for basic expenses. I tried to ask some people for a gift or no interest loan. I dont get reply. When I do speak to someone and told them the main reason is to go home to my country, the air freezes and with a hurry response such as: "no we dont do that, we dont help that".
Should I lie and said "I'm desperate to celebrate a big birthday party of my husband 50th (last yea), or our 5th anniversary, etc?? I speak the truth, that I want to go home country, although USA has been my humble home with my husband.
Although I also need money to study and start small business. My top priority is due to being homesick and I explain that truthfully for seeking a goodwill loan. But since I have experience several times to the chilling silence and response, I know no one will dare to care. I dont really blame them, but they over reacted. If I were rich, I would also be mindful who I wish to help; nothing for alcohol, drugs, etc. But I would get the facts referred, because people who decide upon factual details are smart person;people who jump to conclusion due to suspicious and lack of factual information, are ignorant (and selfish).

welcome your comments, but please dont be mean.
People are mostly no good and not worth the trouble you're putting yourself through.

You quoted the OP and then say she is putting herself through trouble? The woman is trying everything in the world - BESIDES getting a job - to have someone pay for her vacation and you call that putting herself through trouble? What did you read that the rest of us did not?

Yes, she shouldn't bother asking anyone for money and putting herself through the TROUBLE of thinking people are going to actually help her, especially if they think she is of the ethnic background they associate with 'terrorists.' If she goes to a bank or institution to get a loan or whatever, those people are going to deny her. People are mostly no good and you can't rely on them for anything, which is what I said before. They aren't interested in helping anyone else and they're even less interested in helping Arabs, etc. So I don't know what you saw wrong with that.

I have no clue about her ethnicity - I don't give 3 sh*ts what it is. She is unemployed, not looking for work, yet asking for money for a "business" so she can take a vacation. She's looking for "loans" without paying interest for her vacation.

I have a problem with everything about her scam. People are going hungry and she wants to be loaned/gifted money for a vacation.

You're right. She shouldn't put herself through the "trouble" of thinking people are gtoing to help her - help her with her scam. She doesn't need help. What she wants is not a need. She doesn't deserve help to take a trip. She could get a job, but that's beneath her.

What is YOUR problem that you cannot tell the difference between a luxury (trip) and a need?
