A/N: Sorry I didn’t get to include any angst!

Your fingers impatiently tap against your school desk, the screen on your laptop hadn’t changed in 30 minutes, and you were starting to panic. You can feel Peter’s eyes on you, but you don’t want to look away from your screen - not even for a second - in fear that it would load and you’d lose your chance.

“How’s it looking, babe?” Peter whispers in your ear, making you jump a little,

“I don’t know,” you sigh out, making sure to keep your voice low so that your teacher at the front of the classroom can’t hear, “I’ve been stuck in this stupid green room loading screen for forever,”

“You’ll get through,” Peter tries to reassure you, “Ticket’s don’t go on sale for another 5 minutes anyway,”

You nod, but you don’t really believe him. You’d tried this before, a week ago, and you failed to get tickets then too. This was shaping up to be the same.

When you’d found out that your favourite band was touring, you exploded with excitement. You’d been waiting years for them to finally announce a tour, and the New York date happened to be the day before your birthday. You’d told yourself it was fate; but now it wasn’t looking that way.

I just saw Weezer live. Anyone who knows me long enough knows how much the band, and specifically their first two albums, means to me.

When I failed to get tickets in 2014, I actually cried in front of my friends. Three years later I was able to see them for free, for an event I did not plan/could afford to go to if it was not for the free passes.

The child in me, the teenager in me and the adult in me are all so happy, so pleased, so over joyed to have finally experience a dream of mine since I was 12 years old.

So so so happy

Donate buttons and wishlists should really only be on people’s pages for the following reasons:

  • It’s for a charity or cause that doesn’t benefit the user personally. For example, raising money for cancer research or collecting toys for homeless children.
  • They need but can’t afford a surgery, medication, product, or service that is either life-saving or dramatically life-improving (and by that I mean something like an expensive wheelchair or funds for a couple trying to adopt a child, not concert tickets or a car). I’m also including sex change surgery in this category because for some people it can be life-saving.
  • They’ve hit rock bottom financially and are at risk of being homeless or starving (or they already are). This can be because they lost their job, they lost everything in a fire or other disaster, they’re trying to leave an abusive household, or some other legitimate reason.
  • They’re trying to help out a friend or family member who is in one of the above situations.

There’s probably some other situations too, but the point is people should only ask for money or gifts online if it’s something they NEED and that they can’t pay for themselves. Asking for money from strangers on the Internet should be used as a last resort, nothing more. Here’s what I’m tired of seeing (note: the quotes in here aren’t actual quotes, they’re just based on what I’ve been seeing):

  • Wishlists with things the person doesn’t need in hopes some stranger on the Internet will decide to be nice and buy it for them.
  • PayPal links with either zero explanation or just a short caption that says something vague like “Click here to fund me!”
  • Sob stories that give no explanation as to where the money is actually going. Example: “My dog ran away, my boyfriend and I are fighting, I might have to move across the country and I’ve just been really sad lately. I added a donate button on the sidebar if you want to help me out, any amount is appreciated!” Like, I’m sorry you’re having a hard time but how will sending you money help with those things?
  • People who make things they don’t need sound like necessities. Example: “I recently moved out of my parents’ house and now I’m coming up short on rent. My only options are being homeless or moving back home. My parents aren’t abusive or anything, I just need my own space and I need to prove to everyone that I can be independent. Please help!” (Umm, if you’re asking for money online you’re clearly not yet capable of being independent.) Or: “My favorite band is coming to my town soon and I really want to go to their show, the only problem is that I can’t afford it! It’s my dream to see them live and they only tour once every few years, so this is the only chance I’ll have for a while. Please donate soon before tickets sell out!”
  • Stories that are clearly made up. I don’t think this one requires an explanation.

I guess I’m just annoyed because when people abuse the system like that it makes it harder for the people to get money when they actually need it. I’m really distrusting of people who ask for money on here because I always wonder if it’s someone who’s lying or exaggerating to get what they want. That’s not fair to the people who actually do need the money. I don’t get how people can be so dishonest and greedy.
