The Go Fund Me Crisis – It’s Not What You Think!
This Bro Started a GoFundMe Campaign So He Doesn’t Have to Work Anymore, Makes Very Compelling Case For Himself
Thankfully for our friend Jordan here, he has no pride to be found. Doesn’t give a shit if his fortune is earned, inherited, or made from pure charity. That’s why earlier today he emailed us today asking if we would post this and help him become a rather useless member of society.
This fucking guy. THIS FUCKING GUY…stole my idea to start a crowd-funded retirement campaign. Technically he didn’t steal it, because I never publicly admitted I wanted to do this, but ever since that asshole raised $30K to make potato salad I’ve been itching to give it a shot. Only thing holding me back is pride and the smallest amount of self-respect imaginable.
