I've seen preachers asking for someone to donate a motorcycle to him. Starting off about how it would be more convenient and economical. Then finishing by specifying that it must be at least a 750 v-twin, lots of chrome, and a sissy bar for a passenger.

What is wrong with people, everyone wants to have everything for absolutely nothing.

There's far bigger problems in the world and to let something like this upset you seem like a waste of energy.

It's not so much this one occurrence as what it represents. This is one example of several. People don't want to earn things for themselves anymore. They want their parents, or other family, or government, etc.... to give them everything. That issue is at the core of a lot of our major problems in the world. The amount of people seeking hand outs is rapidly increasing and things like this just underline it. This posting didn't upset me as much as entertain me, my wife and I laughed about it. You don't find it funny that someone is being so picky about something they want for free. Like the preacher wanting a motorcycle, but only if it was a certain cc motor, and has plenty of chrome.lol

I got my 33g tank, stand, filter and gravel from my neighbor, but that was after I bugged her for a few weeks about tge 29g setup I was going to buy. She finally told me I could havr all of that. She wouldn't take any money or anything. I dont see a problem with handouts but I will agree that it is totally bunk to ask for a very expensive gift, and the specify as to what you want. It jusy shouldn't be that way.

I posted an ad on CL asking for a free house... The thing is, you never know until you ask. I only did it once, and even had someone from zimbabwe write me and tell me that if I wired them $1000 for transfer fees, they would mail me the keys (they were moving to zimbabwe for mission work). lol
