Today, I was looking for a job. I was so desperate for gas money to drive around town that I had to steal $20 from my sister. She's only 10 years old. FML

You have the balls to call someone a noob while giving that "nugget of wisdom "? That kind of thinking, #1, is going to lead to a life of living in your mother's basement, wearing footie pajamas and sleeping in the same race car shaped bed you grew up in. Not saying go steal from little kids, but obviously something has to be up why OP did that instead of asking their parents.

47- maybe their parents won't pay for petrol since they believe their son needs to learn how to live independently and maybe he happened to ask his parents for money when he was visiting?when they said no he resorted to stealing from his sister, it's just a theory

Parents are there to help their kids until they can go on their own. It's bad enough so many parents nowadays don't even help their kids with shit like buying a car or with other big expenditures, or that parents are becoming more selfish and dumb. It doesn't help grow independence, it helps grow misery and puts them off to a bad start financially. How do they expect their kid to pay for all expenses and then also go to school and become successful? It's not the times when college cost $100 to go and then no one has any debt afterwards. And with the job situation.. good luck. All spoken from a poor person with a European family, so what do I know. If OP had to steal from his little sister for gas money and for some reason can't ask his parents, I have to assume they are assholes

89 no I really don't think all parents have the financial backing to buy their kids a car, and send them to school. I know my parents didn't I don't judge them, and honestly I turned out just fine, no debt from school. As for the gas money it seems like OP could have asked for gas money, but you don't know the entire situation. You can't just assume they are assholes.

Actually I used noob because I thought that person's comment was so stupid it pissed me off, and I had I come up with a word that wasn't way too insulting. Calm down, I don't even live with my mother.

She may only be ten but if OP explained the situation and stressed it, maybe the sister would understand. If not (which is possible, she's only a kid), I'm sure a parent or friend could have helped out. I have asked a friend for gas money to get to interviews. Sure, it was embarrassing but oh well. Plus, to a ten year, 20 bucks makes you about the third richest person in the world. She'll be upset when she notices it's gone.

I never said stealing was right, especially when it's from a child. You told the OP to get a job, when it's clearly stated s/he is in pursuit of one.

#54, OP could always ask around the neighborhood to see if anyone needs any work done that they'll pay OP for. Around this time of year, there's plenty more chores to do than usual.

Not sure what you're thinking, stealing from your sister. She probably would have lent it to you if you asked. Might want to drive around town and look for a job.
