It doesnt matter what OP coulda or shoulda done, there are a lot of reasons why they were carrying cash instead of having it in a bank or prepaid card the fact of the matter is they had cash and got mugged now they are screwed cause they can't buy the shit they need for school, if it was me i'd be pissed. Those of you that say YDI are asshats
Actually YOU are the idiot Coolada. If their money had been in the bank they would have a debit card in which case the mugger would need their pin number to use it. the card would be useless to the mugger at that point. Also all the OP would need to do was cancel the card right away.
I think people are forgetting the whole point of this FML. Would have it been safer to keep a credit/debit card to keep his money? Yes. Does it change the fact that someone stole something from him that he worked hard for? Absolutely not. So to the people here saying YDI for not keeping the money in the bank or using a debit/credit card, I hope you get mugged someday. I bet you a million dollars your sorry ass won't be thinking the same way anymore.
you couldn't save the money in a bank but had to carry around cash?? what if you had dropped it or someone stole it from your apartment, you would be in the same situation. Lack of financial responsibility and discipline is the root cause.
you need to think about this yourself. I feel like your looks are getting you agreed with.......lowlife thug may be feeding a family or buying crack. stop trying to act like your some mesiah enlightening the people. I wouldn't think any diff if I got robbed except... damn, I knew I should have bought a gun or took took self defense classes.
Sooo buying crack and having a family makes it okay to rob people... BTW I agreed with the fact that it would've been safer to use a credit/debit card. The whole point was that he got MUGGED, which is WRONG. Even if you were mugged and you didn't have cash on you it sucks. I understand that just because it's wrong doesn't mean it doesn't happen, but it sucks regardless of the circumstances. Period.
So now-a-days we are so dependent on credit/debit cards for safety to where it is our "fault" for not using a credit/debit card? Do you know how stupid that even sounds? So is it my fault if I am wearing a Rolex and someone mugged me? You're just going to say "You should've had that stored in the bank". Who the hell are you to tell me what to have on my person? I should feel safe enough to walk down the street with MY belongings without the fear of getting robbed. How dare you even try to blame the carrier. The mugger gets all the blame. FYI not all credit/debit cards are better/safer than cash. If a burglar breaks into my home - I get the blame because I didn't buy the Nationsl Security Home Premium Package? No.
Vista or MasterCard man use that next time. That sucks though man, fyl
Who are you to call him a lowlife? Maybe he took your money because his family of four is less fortunate and he can't find employment because very few places hire convicted felons. Therefore you provided this thug with hope for his family.(: FHL for needing money that badly.
Yeah, or instead, maybe he really was a lowlife, and you're just a fucking idiot. In this day and age, those ends don't justify the means, even if the guy really was just down on his luck. Food stamps, welfare, etc. If he has a house and a family, he can't possibly be that badly off to warrant mugging people.
Seriously? You think that just because he can't afford anything on his own, that it makes it okay for him to mug someone? What's stopping him from mowing lawns or being a handy man? You can do that on your own, don't need to be hired by any company for that, all you need is the initiative, and the self-respect to want to earn your own money, rather than feeling entitled to someone else's. And the "convicted felon can't get a job" excuse is bullshit anyway; it's circular reasoning. He commits the felony because he has no money, and he has no money because he's a convicted felon, and he commited the felony because he had no money, and he had no money because he's a convicted felon.... it has to start and stop somewhere, so this argument makes no sense.
Who is he to call him a lowlife? He is the guy who just got mugged, and got money taken away from him that in all likelihood he worked a long time for. Who is that mugger to just rob someone and decide that he needs the money more than him. If someone really is in a dire situation he should steal some food instead of robbing random people in the streets, and no I'm not endorsing stealing food from stores if you're poor. Get a job!
Geez I was just being creative and looking at the situation in a different manner than the obvious "should have saved it in the bank" etc. And actually that circle thing is true, once in a system it's hard to get out. But lighten up people! I was only being imaginative and adding some spice to the given FML.
No, not at all. I know that it's wrong to steal no matter the reason but as I stated earlier, I was just adding a different point of view. I don't agree with the whole Robin Hood concept because it's a pretty idea but it's not something that is function. Just like the whole tax cut business that Obama is going for. It's not right just to tax from people with a certain annual salary and up. What needs to be done is people need to all pay the same percent. And I know I have gone off on a tangent, but it's so you may see that I do not live in a magical perfect land. Like I stated earlier, I was being creative as to make the story somewhat more interesting. Look at all this conversation it has accumulated! xD
