    This kid has a lot to learn - and it seems he's ignoring the lessons we've tried to give him. Back when the whole flooded basement fiasco happened, I was one of the first to be the 'pinside dick of the day' and recommended he sell some of his games to raise funds rather than beg for money. But nope, he just couldn't part with any.

    Here's the link for posterity: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/sos-in-nj-help-needed-after-flood

    This kid was living with his parents, and using his grandma's house as his personal arcade. When he gets some water in grandma's basement - he comes running with his hand out begging for $$. He claims he can't work - yet he's strong enough to haul all these games around. This attitude of entitlement that (some of) the millennial's have these days is disappointing. Back in my day, if you wanted something, you worked hard to earn it and saved up for it. Going out on the street and begging for $$ used to be frowned on - nowadays it's called 'crowd funding'.

    I know, I know - I truly am the old 'get off my lawn' guy now. I used to be a cool heavy metal kid with long hair - now I'm a grumpy old bald dude....my how time flies.

    Quoted from ultimategameroom:

    Because loans require monthly payments with interest added.
    Ain’t nobody got time for that!

    Yep - here's his explanation in his own words.

    Quoted from Otaku:

    am not a big believer in loans or credit cards because I have seen them destroy people so I do what I can to stay away from them, loans can be good but I think not getting one and dealing with the Pinside backlash is a much more mature decision than getting one against my car and not being sure I could even pay it back in time. It something else comes up to where I wouldn't be able to pay it back I am screwed. And that is not a good decision.

    Quoted from Otaku:

    If you're going to chalk me up for anything, at least don't chalk me up for asking for donations here on Pinside in form of a thread, because that is not something I did

    ...well - you DID - but not this time.

    Quoted from Otaku:

    it's not "ala Rusty Quarters" where I am here begging the arcade community for money but rather for local folks who are interested in helping out

    At least you admit to begging. Acknowledging your problem is the first step in recovery.

    Quoted from Otaku:

    Thanks for your interest, and thanks for the free exposure - but I'm not interested in discussing further.

    ...followed by A TON of further discussion

    Quoted from Otaku:

    I won't be reading or replying to this thread after this.
