'Honeymoon bailout' a big success

Jeebee25 told us about how he and his fiancee' were dealing with financial issues and paying for a wedding. He also mentioned his "honeymoon bailout" idea and posted a video. He stormed social networking sites, asking for contributions of $1.00 each, hoping to raise $1000 in time for his honeymoon. Yesterday, Jeebee25 was happy to report that they met their goal, and then some.


"Currently we are at $1167.87," he said. "I think I had two people donate a single dollar. Then it moved on up to anywhere from $5 to $100. So now we have a nice sum for spending and have to write a lot of thank you notes."

Certainly alot of idiots out there willing to give other idiots there money. Hey lazy F's, here's an idea, get a part time job or don't take a honeymoon. Instead you resort to internet panhandling. Way to keep it classy.  LOSERS

You baldheaded, hairy faced, lazy, jerk, sorry SOB.  My kids work two jobs to pay for a roof over their head and food for their babies and you have the unmitigated gall to solicit money for a honeymoon???

The only thing more idiotic than that is that people actually gave you money.

I knew this world's priorities were skewed but this has to rank toward the top.

I agree with Seannsux and Radioroll: we, if we dont have money, either get another job or do not buy things we cant afford and wait until we can! Unlike, you, beggars! Why dont you buy me a bailout vacation my family havent had in a long time???

So, we are supoosed to say, ahh, aint that sweet? So many nice people?

 

I wish people could help me pay back my $30,000 dollars in college tuition but that's not going to happen.  I also wish people would help me out to buy a home, that's not going to happen either.

 

A fool and their money are soon parted and you did that to a lot of fools--good for you.  Working for a living sucks and an education is a waste of time isn't it? 

 

I hope you can sleep at night.

What is the big deal. I wouldn't do what he did but who are you to judge. I think he is smart he needed help and he asked for it. He asked the people and they gave it to him, He didn't steal it on some other illegal things. Its a tough time yes if some people want to help someone so what. You should try it sometime it feel good. But I forgot that isn't what this country is all about, No wonder why the world hates us. You want to complain what about the welfare bums that suck off the state and then get into there BMW. So proud to be a self centered AMERICAN!

We saved $2000 for our honeymoon over the course of three months by selling stuff on ebay that we bought at garage sales.

 

Why not try to cover it yourself before you ask people for money? Save that for bad times when you really need it...but then, we're a different generation and not used to having things handed to us.

Let me say that this was an idea I had and I learned in life that the people who do not act on their ideas end up doing nothing. I had a full time job and had my hours cut in half two months before our wedding date. I am currently trying to get more work but people do not want to hire someone who then needs to leave for two weeks so I can do the wedding and honey moon that we already paid for.

 

And as another note if you watched my other videos or read my story you would know that we have put together our wedding without using any type or credit. The day we get married we will not owe one red cent for anything we did on the wedding.

 

So some people think this was a bad idea, some thought it was good. I truly thank who thought it was a good one and the ones that thought enough of it to pitch in.

 

Cheers!
