    love of money is the root of all evil

    Can't possibly agree more.

    For money, people do things they wouldn't have even imagined otherwise.

      There is a big difference in winning enough to get some good WGT equipment  . One can hardly corrupt oneself with that .

      Also for money , people do good things they wouldn't have imagined otherwise .

    Then there are those that use deceptive tactics to steal...

    The worst of the bunch

    Promoting themselves as victims in need of help, Pfffft

    I agree with you Joe...Instead of continually showing up like a bad rash, Paul promised to leave ...but, like all of his other promises (i.e., paying you what he owes you)....

      For those you that have no idea what these two are spouting off about . I will tell you .

      From mid 2017 on and for the next 2 years I suffered from both right and left torn rotator cuffs .With other accumulative damage to both shoulders . Stemming from a couple of severe incidents working . And many years of constant aggravation .

      By the beginning of 2018 I could not move either arm .

      I could not work .

      I could not get any compensation or income .

      I could not pay rent .

      I had surgeries .

      I started a GoFundMe .

      I received several thousand dollars . Most of which from WGT friends . Not all .

      I was very appreciative , Thanked each individual earnestly .

      I used the money as wisely as I could .

      I had left arm full shoulder replacement .

      The day of my surgery . My wife and I and our cat . A 13 yr old cat with diabetes for 5 yrs. We were evicted from our 13 yr home .

      A WGTer from California paid for a motel for a week .

      After that we lived in our car in 118 * weather . For almost 2 weeks . During that time our cat got lost and no doubt died of exposure or lack of insulin .

      We heard about a trailer park that we may be able to afford .

      Fresh off my surgery . I had little to offer . But they could see we were good people . Provided us with a trailer .

      3 months later I got medically released . Went to work for the Trailer Park . Paid them back .

      Continued therapy .

      Eventually got hired by RWK Electric Co Inc . Where I have my own truck . Run my own jobs . Celebrate 1 year coming up in August .

      This is Arizona . So it came as only a little surprise and disappointment . When I lost my unlosable ( according to my lawyer ) compensation claim .

      We now live in a much better trailer in the same park . We stay to ourselves .

      My wife Karen has HIV . And has self quarantined ( not left the house ) since March 15th . The minute we realized COVID 19 was serious .

      And there you have it .

    continually showing up like a bad rash

    Ah, Chapter 37,

    Must be time for a fresh round of sympathy.

    Ah, Chapter 37,

    Must be time for a fresh round of sympathy.

    And I would sympathize for you both . But I know your immaturity provides you with a GR8 amount of laughter . So for whatever insecurities spurs such a need to lash out . It at least keeps you happy . On the outside .
