Lazy College Student Starts GoFundMe to Pay Her Parking Ticket, Gets Destroyed by the Internet
Having to pay off parking tickets can be a pain and that’s why one North Carolina woman is hoping others will do it for her on her GoFundMe page.
Unfortunately, this is no April Fool’s joke. The woman, who is identified as Bethy from Raleigh, is getting backlash for her $30 parking ticket GoFundMe page. Bethy wrote on her crowdfunding campaign page:
“Yesterday, I didn’t feel like walking from my parking deck to the gym, so I parked in employee parking… which is apparently a parking violation (even on a university holiday).”
Facebook users were quick to call her out for her laziness and entitled ways. One person pointed out the irony that she was reluctant to get some exercise walking to the gym. According to Bethy, walking was a challenge because she had leg day the day before. Duh.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
