    Can't decide if it annoys me or amuses me

    Saw this in the parking lot by the u of u the other day.
    I think we should flood her venmo account with requests for money, since it's actually my birthday today, and not hers anymore...

    At first I was like, wtf, entitled asshole, then I laughed, and figured she is just getting in on the grift like we are all learning is so easy to do today, so it amused me. But I think it should fall in the annoy me column.

    Yeah, I write that kinda shit on dozens of random parked cars every day. Works like a charm. Half my monthly income comes from that. You should give it a try.

    I guess this is the new begging. Maybe one step up from a cardboard sign saying "Anything helps, God bless."

    If someone's down and out I have no issues with being asked for money. Soliciting donations from strangers because it's your birthday is trashy AF.

    It would be funny if her friends did that and Claire did not know. If it was Claire she needs to get a fucking job

    Fred, get in on that mountain town living the dream free cash stream on your next cross country road trip Upstates. It’d be funny to see how the donations and comments change as you go from Summit County to the land of Stewart’s.

    It is a plague. All the teen girls are starting to learn that dipshit guys will just pay them money for absolutely nothing. Why do you think everyone's TikTok profile has their cashapp username?

    I can't imagine how much actual money some of these people pull in simply from randos just dropping them $5 here and there.

    Honestly, if a homeless person put their cashapp username on a decent sign at the stoplight, they'd probably make more money since people wouldn't even have to roll their windows down.

    It's particularly grating when it's invading Californians. Saw this little gem a while back. Does it get any more Gen Z California than asking strangers to Venmo you? GTFO!

    I've seen the exact same thing right down to the coffee, but the van wasn't a chevy and it was TX to WA.

    Let's face it: it was all downhill when people starting writing on their car windows. I wish that entire trend would die.

    And get off my lawn!

    I know people who will try a go-fund-me for damn near anything, i know that if they have money probs its cuz they are dumb asses who make or have made bad choices in life, don't really work very hard ... big suprise

    you and I are not giving her any $ but there might be people out there who will, maybe other dumb asses ?

    how many life coaches do you Know ?

    I'm not really suprised or concerned

    Saw this a couple years back. Newly married and pregnant, looking for 4ever home.

    Why would I give money to people who apparently can't plan ahead?


    Same trip, saw a couple of bikers sitting outside a grocery store with a sign asking people to help buy food. Heard them saying to someone who I guess offered to help "you don't need to buy everything on the list". How nice of them! How bout you get a fucking job to fund you journey of self discovery rather than begging.Click image for larger version.

    you guys should throw bricks through their back windows, that would show em!

    must be working since everyone has a photo of a car doing the same grifting. I blame the growing wealth gap and income inequalities in this country more than some kids looking for handouts. Definitely easier to hate on the little guy i guess.
