Gifting Circle- Crash and Burn

Please welcome Jessie to the sofa.

It’s pretty sad, I have an Aunt in Florida that’s in a gifting circle, it was going strong, well amazingly strong & then bad press hit the paper from an upset ex-husband that raised hell w/the media & the circles broke down. She had been through it twice, paid off her daughters college tuition loan & started up a pet adoption home… and now she had put in money for herself & 3 others she knew to get through this and they all collapsed because people actually believe these scare tactics! It’s so sad… something good can get turned into something bad so quickly! It really does work… not for everyone in different circles b/c greed plays a role in some peoples hearts & they can ruin in! I can speak for my Aunt when I say that she’s changed a few people’s lives & it’s sad when it comes crashing down when they were so successful and doing nothing wrong.

Junie: I’m sorry to hear that your Aunt’s gifting circle didn’t work out. Risky investments are always a gamble, especially when they’re subject to the behavior of others. People get crazy when it comes to money.

Shoplifting Queen

Please welcome Freebird to the sofa,

I don’t know when the stealing started but now I can’t stop. It is an incredible high for me to plot and plan and then actually pull it off. I wear loose clothing and slip small things into a girdle-like undergarment. It is pretty easy to get away with. I’ve had one close call, but I knew they were onto me, so I dumped everything when I was out of  view; when they searched me I was clean. This bad habit has become much worse lately. I feel as though I can justify my actions because of the economy crisis. I know it’s morally wrong and illegal, but guess who doesn’t have any credit card debt when the Holiday’s are over? Don’t lecture me it won’t help; I will just tune it out. I wish I felt remorse for my actions- sorry I don’t.

Junie: Okay I won’t lecture but you have to promise not to whine when you find your freebird booty not so free anymore. Jail-time is very likely in your future. Freebird could become a Jailbird-sorry I’m just saying……
