A Facebook acquaintance inherited money after her mother's death and spent it on large, brand new, gas-guzzling vehicles for her son and husband. I thought that was a stupid use of this one-time windfall, but hey, if she can afford it, it's no skin off my nose.
Well, only a few months later, there was an unexpected family crisis on the other side of the world.
SHE SET UP A GOFUNDME PAGE and kept spam-posting her FB friends for weeks, begging them to pay for her plane tickets, which were only going to cost a few thousand dollars, anyway.
Hardly anyone gave - I wonder why. Could it be that we still remembered the super-luxury vehicles you rubbed in our faces so recently?
She quietly deleted the page when it became obvious she wasn't going to get the help she'd hoped for.
