Sorry I have been AWOL for a bit now. Been busy and I'm currently helping a friend out/have a new room mate for a couple weeks; sort of thing. Probably not going have much time to post anything other than this post for a while. I will check in and I will still be bombing this month because it's fun .bounce lol! Other than that you might as well put me on the zombie list for a bit.
Love to all my brothers and sisters in my absence, happy birthday to everyone, Congrats all around, and see ya on the warm side.

I can relate. Working a 2nd job and still mowing lawns this season doesn't leave much time.
Funding a new Death Star is killing me. Damn things are expensive. Cool

I assume you got my text message asking where the hell you were.

Because unlike the original poster here, who had the fortitude to keep in touch, you flipped us off and skipped off. Laughing

By the way, this is the worst thread hijack of yours to date, Rob. Poor guy (original poster) wanted to reach out to us, let us know he's checking in, and it turned into YOUR thread. tongue Laughing

Isn't that the way it usually works on BoB? Laughing 

Sorry All.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming, which is already in progress. Cool 

Dan - check in when you can.

Let me be the first to congratulate you on your promotion. You'll kick Kyle around now.

Ok, I guess I just don't get how to "help" people. Apparently I didn't make my house guest feel welcome enough. The rent free place to live, free food, help repairing his jeep, giving him clothes, giving him money for gas, and letting him hang in my most private of personal spaces (my den/smoking room) just wasn't cutting it I guess.

It may have been my house rules that were way too tough?!?!
Like, you can't be here and stink. Take a shower when you need one.
You will do your share of the work load; 1/3 the chores. Help clean the kitchen, load the dish washer, help with yard work, clean up after yourself, keep my den clean like I do, and find a job.
You know, normal things one would expect of a 25 year old adult. Sigh.....

This brings me to my new way of thinking. The new way of thinking is simply NO!
As in:
No you may not stay in my house.
No I will not feed you.
No I can not spare a few bucks.
No you can't be here smelling like that.
No you cant use, borrow or even rent my yard tools or anything else I spent hard earned money on.
No you can not use my computer for ANY reason. If you need to find a job and you want to use a computer; the un-employment office lets you use one for free.

Sorry for the rant n' rave guys, I'm just so freeking frustrated I want to scream. I just don't understand why someone would take a dump in the hand that's trying to help them out of the crappy life they tell me they hate sooooo much.
I think the reason I have such a hard time with this B.S. is many years ago a very nice man let me live in his house rent free. Not only did I take the chance to better myself but I will also be eternally grateful for the helping hand when I needed it. I lived by the house rules back then and did much more than my share of the chores because I was so happy to not be living in my car anymore!
Now that I'm more financially stable I keep wanting to give others the same hand up I got but to date that idea hasn't gone well. At least this one didn't try to steal from me or start doing hard drugs in my spare bedroom (or worse). Yet I'm still a bit bent out of shape.
I don't want to offend any of our younger brothers with my next statement but I just want to know. What the h#** is wrong with these 20somthings that it seems better to live in a car then accept some help and live by a few adult rules? Seriously?


Sincerely
    Fed up in Idaho Mad

On a side note:

I'm going to be taking out my frustration on who ever this months BoB Bombers target may be. I am going to make a tobacco scented, smoldering crater where once there stood a proud pipe smoker.
BE AFRAID! BE VERY AFRAID! affraid

Sorry you're having a hard time. The universe knows that you went out of your way to help someone, even if you have to put him out;).

Unfortunately the world is full of worthless POS's like that.
My brother tried helping one of his highschool 'friends', though it was many years later and he had similar results.

I think part of the problem is the 'entitlement' mentality that affects the younger generations today.  

Helping a man who is down on his luck is most admirable.  You can't blame yourself, as you did more than most others would've. Within a couple of weeks he'll wish he had done things differently.  A soft bed, meals, and AC go a long way to helping someone be comfortable this time of year.  

He lost his chance and he'll regret it, but don't give up on humanity as a whole because of a couple of dillweeds.

Sorry to hear your guest damaged your view of the human race. I think that people like that come into our lives to help us appreciate the ones who actually have integrity.

Look at the good side. If you hadn't found him out, he'd have worked you for years. Down the road, you'll be way ahead.

There is a mentality that views generosity, fair-dealing, benevolence, compassion, whatever you want to call it, as a weakness to be exploited. It's operative in world affairs, domestic policy, personal relationships, and prison yards. Compassion should be reserved for those who deserve it, and then only when voluntary. I wouldn't write off the entire human race just from this one experience, but you might want want to hone your selectivity to a keen edge. I know this guy's type. He's a loser and wants to be a loser regardless of what he might say. I'm a strong believer in letting everyone go to hell their own way--but not with my assistance.

Leftover:

A)  I like your attitude.  Take your frustration out by paying it forward on BoB.  That kind of fuel means nuclear strike, and I pray the target has a fallout shelter.   Very Happy

B)  I'm not going to talk sh*t about your family, I only have a right to do that with my own.  Laughing   For whatever reason, and it isn't just an age thing, it's a society thing:  people have an entitled attitude.   They mask it in lofty (incorrect) terms like "freedom,"  but forget that when there's other people footing the bill/effort/sanity, it ain't "freedom" anymore.  It's mere manner-less inconvenience at best, and downright criminal at worst.   Being "nice" to people is a shotgun approach (pardon the term at the moment).  You're bound to bag someone who would rather take advantage of it than appreciate it.  We can't shelter ourselves from it wholly, or that turns us into bitter louts.  We can't give it away freely, or we can get taken to the cleaners.  

For brevity, when I was "in between homes" in my youth, I stayed short-term with plenty of people.  Often they'd come home to a house cleaner than when they left for the day, their yards more tended, and I tried my best to "not be there" while being there.   It's an attitude.   What I left and why I left it with my own kin years ago was far worse than the graciousness and giving of the hosts that took me in.   The only thing that sucked was I knew it wasn't permanent, and eventually I had to figure it out on my own.

If people down on their luck can't get beyond their situation, they've doomed themselves in the end--no matter if it's their fault or not.  It's a damn shame.  Fortunately, there's a handful of giving people out there willing to try and make it better for others, and I hope those kind never go away.

Rant away, brother Leftover, I think it's YOU that needs a bomb. Twisted Evil
