Charity can be a ***** sometimes.
Sorry for the profanity in the subject, but I'm venting the little that I have to vent.
So I'm sitting in Starbucks charging the new iPod Touch that I just traded in my iPhone for. Two kids come in asking for some financial support. I'm in a giving mood, so I wanted to give a dollar or two. Only problem: I didn't have singles. So I ask neighboring people to watch my stuff, but they weren't listening. I went quickly to get change, to come back with my iPod missing.
Pretty easy to guess the fail move that I made here, right?
Fortunately, I saved about $325 in anticipation of getting a new Powerbook. I'm aborting mission on that plan, buying a new iPod Touch and saving the rest for more important stuff.
I think I'm more upset that they are stealing other people's hard-earned money for their own benefit, and under the name of a good cause. I hope that they see the error in their ways...and the HARD way. ***hats.
