Hands Out

Posted on | December 6, 2013 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:
In the past week alone, I have received over a dozen invitations from friends to donate money to some lame-brained idea that they’ve put on Kickstarter. One person wants to write a book about Italy (who cares), somebody else wants to make a movie (double who cares?) and another one wants funding for a photography project. For most of these people, they could afford to fund the project on their own but they choose to use other people’s money instead. Isn’t this just a new form of begging? It’s driving me crazy.

Dear Not Feeling:
No one is forcing you to contribute. Make a token donation, or skip it entirely, it’s up to you.
