The craziest SA thread I've seen in a while....

May 28th, 2009 at 07:13 am

Text is Have you guys seen this thread yet? and Link is http://www.savingadvice.com/forums/debt/46402-drug-money-debt.html
Have you guys seen this thread yet? At first, I thought it was a joke, but I think he's serious. I guess even street criminals need personal finance advice. Big Grin

Tempting as it may be, I decided not to respond. There's not too many options... well, legal ones anyway. Even fleeing would violate his parole... although he's already broken that so.... About the only legal thing he can do is turn himself in. At least, behind bars, he has a fighting chance of keeping his knee caps, but he doesn't seem to be hip to the idea. Get it? Knee caps? Hip? Ok, that was terrible.

So yeah, I didn't want to suggest anything illegal. The last thing I want to do is give him bad ideas running through his head. Sorry.

Anyways, moving right along, building that PC has put a severe dent into my budget. So, I'm revisiting every line item in my budget yet again. See if I can't find a way to shoulder the drop. Oops!

Focus! Ok, holiday budget. That's looking good so far. It's a small item on the list, so there really isn't anything I can do about that one. Besides, I need that to stay where it is as a sort of micro-emergency fund, to buffer against abnormal dips in my budgets. That's usually when I slightly over-spend on the kids or something, so I'm not using it to spend on myself or anything. You have no idea how many times that's saved my butt over the years. Argh!

Phone and internet! Actually, I've cut that back as far as I can also, especially with the phone, which averages less than $10 a month at this point. I admit the internet is the second slowest speed, not the slowest, but there's hardly any elbow room on the slowest speed....

Help, I've fallen into the pool of poorly pondered puns and I can't get out! Please slap my hands before I cut off my nose to spite my face!

    As soon as I saw your headline, I knew it was the drug-money post! I'm such a softie, I still felt sorry for him even though it sounds like he was asking for trouble. But what can you say? If he doesn't have the money, he doesn't have the money. Borrowing from another crazy psycho would just make things worse. I agree jail's the only real option, but that's an awful option to face. But as soon as I saw his post, I knew the SA forum folks would tear him a few new ones; they've ripped into people for much smaller flaws of character. LOL.

    Crazy stuff for sure.

    I think this is the craziest blog post....too many body parts!

    I can't believe no one said "whatever you do, don't tap into your 401K!"

    I'm just as agog at the thread from the golfing guy who's wife has never had a job. Sure want to hear the other side of that story....Cottoncolors, too funny! K

    I kept my mouth shut and did not respond either.

  6. My English Castle Says:

    Me too! We're all laughing out here in SAland.

  7. Broken Arrow Says:

    A part of me does feel bad for the guy. I hate standing idle while knowing someone might get hurt....

    Of course, he knowingly did it to himself, and he's only here because the gamble failed....

    And I don't know what he's expecting from a personal finance crowd anyway. There's no "Save $5 off at your next stay in jail" coupons to clip for something like this. Big Grin

    I couldn't stomach that thread. 'Nuff said!

    Your post tickled my funny bone. But the lifestyle seems to be his Achilles heel. And he's probably looking for more then a slap on the wrists if he turns himself in and the dealer probably won't turn the other cheek.

    Oh my! Things are getting out of hand here.

    I responded as this poor ijiot sounds like my brother,my Dumba$$ brother does things like steal do drugs and cannot figure out why I own things and he does not,ummm I do not go to jail or prison every six months!
    My brother could not go to a family reunion because it would break his parole,yet like the guy in the thread he was willing to mess with drugs while on parole.
    I do not think drug dealing comes with a 401K option?It usually comes with the drain your siblings and elderly parents of all their cash option till they are sick of you and wont even talk to you ;-)
