So this happened yesterday on Twitter. I read it and felt terrible. After reading this chat and her (Lola's) thread on Twitter, this is all I want to say.
You're the kind of woman I pray never to come across; graceless, mean spirited and quick to talk & type without thinking. In your urge to disgrace an innocent young man, you have only succeeded in disgracing yourself by exhibiting your ugliness and uncouth nature to the world.
So what if his first message to you is to ask for money? Many people are going through tough times and you can never tell how hopeless some situations look for a person to go as far as asking a stranger for money online. And of course the guy had to come back and lie that he was hacked, he never hesperred that kind of insult from you na.
Sis, whether you want to give him or not is your prerogative. You don't owe him or anyone shit and you could have simply
-ignored his message
-told him you don't have
You could have done any of these, instead you chose to insult him, chose to humiliate him, then as if that wasn't enough you munched this chat for the world to see, and couldn't even be gracious enough to blur his name. All for social media relevance that's as fake as a 1kobo note.
My joy is that in your bid to shame him, you opened doors for him and made him much more money than you could have ever given him.
If you get to read this, please do better. I read your thread and I know you like to act all bad ass and IDGAF-ish, or maybe you're really young and thus ignorant and myopic. Whatever the case is; woman to woman, human to human, there was no reason for this. Please do better.
I really don't know why this got my goat the way it did, the post just made me feel really mad. Please guys, let's all try to be kinder to each other. Life is already hard enough as it is. I know better than most people how it feels to be approached by strangers online for money especially as both my email address and phone number are on the blog. So I know how it can feel sometimes, especially when it seems like I have to keep on giving from my VERY hard earned money and get nothing in return. I know. I also know how to politely say no when I can't afford to give. I know that some people just beg for sport because they are lazy and entitled, but some genuinely need help and are at the end of their ropes. Let's all do better.
