I made a thread before about this friend, but I have a "friend" who is poor, trying to get on free government housing, but is by all accounts a healthy capable man. He refuses to work because he "has anxiety", but also will not see a therapist, has never even tried medication, and will not try any work from home position. He is however, very able to go out drinking with friends all the time. I'm very compassionate to people with mental illness, but it's hard to have empathy when someone refuses to help themself. Anyhow, I've distanced myself from him for various reasons (including this).
Lately he's been posting on FB pictures of his latest collection. He keeps buying these toys, and literally has over 100 now. I'm sure he's spent several hundred at this point. In fact now he made his own youtube channel, which he posts on FB, dedicated to him OPENING BOXES of crap he buys online each week/month. Like literally the videos are of him opening boxes and taking out all the stuff he bought, and showing it to the camera. I watched it and cringed the whole time. I very much am for helping people who are in need of help, but this guy is using his gov. benefits to buy toys and amazon.com crap constantly :/ What a waste.
