He posted today that he wants to upgrade his computer and that this was going to cost him between 600 to 700 Euros ($852 to $994)
I responded to him that upgrading an old computer is a waste of money. I recently looked at laptop computers and found a very nice machine for just under $500 (453 Euros).
He commented that he doesn’t want a normal PC or laptop, the wants a state-of-the-art machine to play games.
My jaw dropped. This man is on welfare and a normal computer isn’t good enough for him! He DEMANDS a state-of-the-art machine to PLAY GAMES!!!
How about he tries working for a living? After all, if he can play games, he can work, don’t you agree? Even if he can’t go out and work, he can work from home. All it takes is a bit of effort finding these jobs.
Of course, it’s much easier to claim welfare and watch the money rolling in while doing nothing.
People like this make me sick. I know people who work at Walmart. One of them is in a wheelchair, another is mentally disabled, but still they go out and work. They receive minimum wage, but they are proud at making their own way. Others work from home, freelancing at anything they can get their hands on. One woman gets up at the crack of dawn and often works long after the sun has set, scraping together the money she needs to keep her head above water. She barely manages, but managing she does.
I’m sure there are many others, people who do whatever it takes to scrape their pennies together. And that’s why it angers me to no end when I see a young, perfectly healthy guy, exploiting the welfare system.
Not only that, money that is meant for food and other necessities is wasted on electronics. And not just any electronic equipment. By his own admission he needs a state-of-the-art computer to play games.
What he needs is his welfare benefits revoked and a good kick up his ass.
