    Why do I meet so many people who care so much about money? For some reason people only come to me if they want my money or want me to buy something? I had an experience where some person flat out lie to me about opportunities to get to my money… (well it’s common in advertisement,etc.) but this person was doing this in front of my face. What do I look like?

    Anyways, I understand that we need money to live, but to live for money? You people are TRASH!!!

    Just want to add that if you do just care about money, (majority of you do), my advice is to just be careful when you do meet people like….well…. YOU!. Have a nice weekend.

    I do care about money, my money.
    for those who like to take when I give, I’m okay with it.
    because when I give, I don’t expect anything back.

    However, I do not like people who come and try to take my money (when I’m not giving).

    These are the people I’m talking about. There are too many of them based on my experience, maybe I’m just a magnet for them. I’m cool with giving out money especially for the needy but people tend to be dishonest or use dishonest ways to get to it. I don’t know how they can live like that.

    ROTFLMAO. :)

    “YOU” and “TRASH”….seeing that in one post is a pretty cool combo. ROTFL.

    Anyway, PEOPLE come to me all the time asking for money and I always give when I have cash but NOT when I don’t have any. LOL. Last time this happened, it was in SF at the Grotto while freakin’ eating calamari and crab.

    Holy Crap, so true.

    I don’t know if it’s anything you’re talkign about…but I got a friend who has been brain washed. I tried to help her, but she refuses to see it my way and says I’m only putting negativity in her life etc…
    She’s getting scammed by those pyramid schemers. I don’t know exactly which company she’s working for, but I have a guess but I won’t mention it here. Anyways, all their doing is taking her money and using her to recruit her close friends and family to join their company then take thier money and then they would have to do the same and there goes the chain. It’s so dishonest and I wish it were illegal! :(

    most sheeple do literally anything for money.

    except the few true buddhists and a few other rare spiritual followings.

    Haha! I know someone who tried to do the same thing to us. She talked the big talk. She said she wanted us to buy her health product by claiming she cared for us. That statement alone drew some big laughs from Kaligirl and I. She was selling some product called Yor Health. I said if she cared for us, why not give us free samples to see if it works? No way Im giving you 300 dollars for one month’s worth of pills!

    Most people don’t approach me for money because I dress like a bum and have a pretentious moustache.

    Please see example below:

    welcome to the world of SALES. It’s not the best job in the world, and people often turn against you, but it’s how many people make a living. I’ve been in sales for 4 years now.

    Really hate being in those high-pressure timeshare sales. I never was able to say “no” to them because of all their ‘tactics’, but I come out feeling like I was being scammed.

    There are many types of people. The trick is to identify who and act accordingly. Now, that is a thing I haven’t learned, yet. Take for example. While standing at a bus shelter one day, a lady approached me begging for money to get on the bus. She only required a few bucks to see her home. I fished a buck or two for her. Without even a thank you she took the money and went off. Yep. I’d been had. This is what is called dishonesty in beggars. Beggars have no more dignity and integrity. In the future, how are you supposed to trust them if they made you a fool like that? It explains why I saw so many business people on the train ignore them when they solicit for money on the train with their sob story. Well, for me. I always have a weakness with sob story. I don’t care if they use it as intended. If they beg and I have, I’d give. Once I give, it is no longer mine to put claim to it. But, it would be nice to see honesty among beggars. Sadly, we live in an age where integrity and honesty is over-rated.

    I say this is in general term. Not every body who begs is dishonest. And, in the giving, one must give with integrity and compassion as well. If one gives in the sense of throwing it in their face, it is not good. Such goodness must be observed by both party, whether he is a giver or the receiver. A man pushing a cart and asked for some money. I told him to wait and went to my apartment for some cash. He waited and when I returned I gave him a $20. He was so excited and it made me excited. Then, he insisted that I take something from his cart in exchange. I took a pair of slipper and it made his day. I felt really good afterward because we made an exchange. It taught me a lesson that nobody wants to be a beggar. Even if they happen to be, they value dignity and in the giving, one must observe that. Giving without thought to others is not giving, but shoving, forcing it down on their throat. Thought in a sense of their honor. I’d resent that if I happen to be in such a situation.

    Then there are others whose business in life is to get your money. They would be your best friend and swindle you without a twitch. Such a person in later life has not proven to be better than anybody in terms of wealth. If not ok, he is destitute. Worse, he would be afflicted with diseases that saw to his early demise. Better to lead straight and narrow path than to make short cuts due to greed. In the end, he hasn’t hurt anybody, but himself. A person may recuperate his wealth through time. He who swindles, on the other hand can’t escape from his own karma of death and disease or poverty.

    ^ reksmay: you’re such kind-hearted person. That poor man was very lucky to have met you.

    I see people beg too but instead of giving money I’d offer them food/fruit that I have, or to buy food for them. On many occasions they rejected the food/fruit offer and only wanted money. Apparently, those ones weren’t starving and they wanted cash for other purpose, i.e. drugs, alcohol, gambling, smokes etc.

    Thanks, Agent and Yap_Nass. Not a problem, Agent. I know I’m a sucker, but that’s me. I just gotta learn to harden my heart a bit more. Yap_Nass, I did that, too, giving them food. Some don’t take it and may feel offended. They prefer cash.
