I really wish GLP didn’t allow Go Fund Me links...just my two cents.
 Quoting: mona lizard


I'm glad they do. We're all old enough to make our own decisions. I don't need a nanny forum.
In his poem Human Pride, Marx admits that his aim is not to improve the world, reform or revolutionize it, but simply to ruin it and enjoy it being ruined:

With disdain I will throw my gauntlet full in the face of the world,
And see the collapse of this pygmy giant whose fall will not stifle my ardor.
Then will I wander godlike and victorious through the ruins of the world
And, giving my words an active force, I will feel equal to the Creator.

I had to stop reading at her taking a cash per week job from her ex who dumped her and married another woman. And why onearth would she have sold her house???

She said she loved and trusted him. WTF!!! Trusted him? I just cant wrap my brian around her doing that. I honestly feel for her poor dog.

Many retirement homes and hospitals will pay for CNA training if you contract to work for them for a year after you finish school. Plus there are many 1 year courses that will keep you out of those loser minimum wage jobs. Unemployment offices will know of tons of training programs and vocational rehab. You have lots of options for bettering your employment situation. There’s always Walmart and McDonald’s not the greatest but still better than no job. Good luck!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2494046




AC, please keep in mind that Miggy is pushing 60 years old. And that many jobs which are suitable for 30 - 40 year old people become more and more physically challenging as a person gets older. Could YOU be 60 and work at McDonalds? Survive a 48-hour week on your feet at a factory? Or a hospital-type job which involves picking up and turning patients over in their beds?

Not chastising, perhaps you didn't realize Miggy's age. Or you're very young and have lots of strength and stamina and have not been smacked around by Life yet.

For a reality check: Today, right now, at this very moment, you have the MOST energy, the MOST stamina, the MOST intellectual acumen, the MOST friends and relatives who are willing/able to help you, and the MOST chance of opportunity knocking that you will have for the rest of your LIFE. And from this moment on, all of those "mosts" will begin to shrink, imperceptibly at first but more noticeably as you get older.

Not complaining, or trying to be a downer, that's just how it is. hf
 Quoting: Eggcellently Deplorable



I am pushing 60 myself born the same year as Miggy. Retirement homes are looking for people exactly like her. People that are mature, settled, caring. Finding dependable help is not easy in today’s world. But believe me there are tons of jobs for people our age. When was the last time you went to a Casey’s, McDonald’s, Walmart etc it’s all people our age. We are the most hired demographic there is. I imagine Oklahoma is a lot like Iowa. CNA training, is only a year or less. Home health is a great way to make a living.
Honestly aside from being disabled there’s no reason she shouldn’t be able to find a job with in a few days.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32202923


Oh, FFS, you can't live on any of those wages unless you're married (another income) or resort to a roommate (like a 20 year old).

I absolutely hate the term “toxic masculinity” telling males by virtue of their being born male that they are to deny themselves any feelings of masculinity for fear of being thought toxic, and telling women to fear men because all males have the propensity to poison you. I mean that’s what toxic means right.

Where’s the toxic feminity? There are many many horrible women that use their feminity to poison others! There are bad men and bad women, but to label and entire gender as toxic is stupid and irresponsible!!!! Boys now a days are told from birth penis bad, penis toxic.

Btw I am female and have lived a long enough life, met enough people to know masculinity is not toxic, my husband is 6’4” of pure Iowa farmboy, masculine to the core and one hot ass mo**** fu*****. For you to say masculinity is toxic is a sign of your jealousy that only soy boys find you attractive. I pity you that you’ve excused your failings by saying masculinity is toxic.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2494046

Well said!!!!! I am also female and absolutely agree with everything you said.
Men are gradually becoming emasculated by the female population .
I would rather be with a masculine man any day rather than the feminised version the modern times dictates

No, no, no. No one is emasculating men. Men are beautiful wonderful creatures. Toxic behavior and domestic violence isn't masculine, it's abusive. Not all men are abusive. But there are abusive men, and women.

Our prisons are filled with abusive men, and women. Not ALL men are in prison. Not all men are abusive but there are lots... with TOXIC behavior.

Chip calling me a cunt... is toxic behavior. No excuses, no doubt, it's abuse.

Some women are targeted. They are used, trafficked, lots of other things. The world is a cruel place. Women are not raised to be fighters, or strong in many cases. Many are damaged and don't have fight or flight response, they just freeze with PTSD. It's more common than we think.

But at some point people will hit bottom. And that's when they will pick themselves back up or die.

You called him toxic isn't that the definition of toxic behavior? You also accused him of violence and abuse towards Miggy.

vi·o·lence
/ˈvī(ə)ləns/
noun
1.
behavior involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill someone or something.

I saw no evidence of physical force. He didn’t threaten her harm.

You made up an accusation.... shame on you. And yes, my friend, using a blanket statement like “toxic masculinity “ is to say that masculinity in and of itself is poison. Which in turn will cause men to avoid masculine behavior in order to not be thought of as toxic. To tell a man to avoid masculine behavior is emasculating.

Oh and before you think I know nothing of abuse, I do, and have the plate and screws in my neck to prove it. Still suffer 30 years later almost daily from headaches. Let me give you some advice, words, name calling, are fucking not violent abuse. I’ll take being called names any day over TRUE physical abuse. There is a HUGE difference, I suggest you recant your words and apologize to Chip for accusing him of violence towards Miggy.

True, they do deserve their bottom....problem is, if people keep handing them crutches they never quite reach that bottom.

Editing to add an epiphany moment for myself.... that bottom you speak of has to sometime be reached by those with the giving hearts who allow themselves to be taken advantage of.
 Quoting: FeedYourHead


Bah. Eventually they all hit bottom, whether it's via a slippery slope or a slippery staircase, and all the help in the world (financial, "advice", whatever) won't change a thing. Change comes from within.

And, you are mistaken that people are being taken advantage of. Either Miggy needs help, or she doesn't. And, it's a personal choice to help...or not help. But, judging the circumstances around her needs, based on past situations, doesn't change the needs. Even if it's cyber-panhandling, she has an apparent need.

If I give the homeless guy on the corner a Twenty, I don't do a background check on him. Nor does it stop me from giving him more on other occasions, even though he's been doing it for months, or years. His demons are his own, and even if he uses that 20 to feed his demons, it's not up to me to judge.
 Quoting: NawtyBits


Fine...I have "demons" too...NOW, GIVE ME MONEY!

Thanks!

Seriously, my concerns had nothing to do with a "past". It has to do with the OBVIOUS lies being told but hey, as I said earlier you folks are all grown people, it's not my job to save you from yourselves. You guys have fun and for those who did at least engage in discussing this, thanks.
 Quoting: FeedYourHead


Okay. Is it Miggy's job loss story that you're saying is a lie? If so, could you please pose a precise question for which she can provide a precise answer? That's fair and reasonable.

Sorry about that red I gave you. I'll fix it once I can give you karma again. It was rash of me.
 Quoting: thinking...


OH Gosh..don't apologize, I understand how emotions and things work on the internet. Sometimes it's difficult to get a point across when it's in this format as opposed to in person, etc. Besides, if not for this I'm quite certain I deserve it for something!

Actually if they are still there I asked her several specific questions in various posts, none of which did she bother to respond. At this point, unless you just want them to see what I was talking about I can either go find them or you can rewind the arrow to see them but that's up to you.

Early on I was very hesitant to say a peep, always wanting to give someone the benefit of the doubt but I have been here longer than my current persona indicates and even though there have been previous "crisis" presented here, that was NOT my concern.

What I was concerned with were the numerous inconsistencies in this thread, all of them from Miggy herself and while I am generous to a fault when I see red flags I can't unsee them and pretend they don't exist.

As I have repeated, I don't like the idea of someone, anyone taking advantage of peoples good hearts and the more I saw in the thread the more inconsistencies I witnessed.

Again, as far as the red, don't worry about it, I knew what I was saying going in would have ramification.

it's all goodpeace

Quick edit to let you know I went to try to find some of those questions but most of those posts have mysteriously disappeared....go figure.

Toxic masculinity has it's own definition which has already been posted. I didn't make that up, it's used by Women's shelters, law enforcement and lawyers.
It's not that hard to understand.
Domestic Violence is also defined by MANY organizations that work with Domestic Violence Cases. ALL violence escalates.
So call them, their numbers are listed.

Thank you for your kind reply. Your questions were fair.

I will ask one that I recall:

Miggy, how did you lose your job? Were you fired, asked to resign or did you quit? Whatever the answer, what led up to it? I agree it was confusing when you said many people were let go (as in a lay off) but it sounds like something happened with you.

Just want you know that whatever happened, I have no regrets about chipping in :) People get in jams and need help and I know that. I hope if I ever reach out to my GLP buds that it will be there for me. Point being, NO SHAME and just asking for the particulars to clear this all up.

Jesus does not cure alcoholism.. YOU DO.. but you get celestial support in the doing of it. Miggy was personally active in securing another job.. faith does help that .

I’ll bet Miggy is actually a short Latino guy, that just received over $2000 to spend on Tequila on tattoos.

For that matter...many businesses won't hire anyone over 50.

I went 8 years - most of my "50's years" - without a real job...surviving on ebay sales and various programs for low income folks.

Applied for many different jobs during that time.

Not even one interview.

gaah
 Quoting: TheLordsServant


We’re those years when jobs were hard to find for everyone? I’m just really surprised by all that. I worked at a farm store 5 years ago and one of our stock “boys” ( load customers vehicles with 50lb bags of feed etc) was 84 years old. After he quit there he worked for the city mowing the parks etc!!!

Yeah maybe your not going to get those jobs that need someone young but brains, experience and dependability means everything at most jobs these days.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76424721


2010 - 2018

The last job I had was Software QA in 2008, but I have been living in a small town and didn't have a dependable vehicle to get me to where jobs where.

I applied at the local grocery store and hardware store as I had "stocking" experience, albeit 25+ years ago in a manufacturing company.

Too many others too explain.

Doesn't matter now as I am collecting my Social Security.

I wouldn't blame her if she DOESN'T post in here again.

Far TOO much bashing from some folks - who wouldn't be satisfied with any type of "explanation".

Im 60+ - and over the years have seen people that just seem to have "difficult lives" for various reasons.

OP's last employer forced her to resign. I personally would have fought that but many folks just can't.

verysad

At this point I hope she gets hired in a better job and can move on.

I very much doubt that, but even if it were true, that guy would have to answer and explain his actions to Heavenly Father, while the people who were kind-hearted and donated a little will have their names in His Book of Life.

It all works out in the end.

I wonder if she tried to get her old job back.

Also credit ratings aren't the big deal they are made out to be in some cases. I was looking at some Tulsa properties where she says she lives.

Now they go from over a million to in some places but plenty under 25,000.
Just small 1-2 bedrooms, bath, kitchen and living room but a place all her own. Neighborhood might not be the best but at least a start or re-start to begin making better choices for herself.

She would probably have a much higher interest rate due to finances (for a couple of years) but maybe she could take the 2,000 from GFM and put it toward a small house or condo unit. It would be her's and most loans only require you live there for 1 year at which time she could sell if things get better.

My take is she has aligned herself with some toxic people including her own family. It's tough but sometimes you have to cut the toxic people including family members out. I had to do it and once done, it's like setting down a large bag of bricks. It's just a relief. You can keep praying for them but you don't have to take their advice or socialize with them.

If she keeps up with her mortgage payments for 6 months she could get a car providing she has a driving license. She didn't mention only that she ride a bus.
