Why are people so greedy?

My “friend” constantly brags to me about how much money she is getting for child tax. Which is an absurd amount of money more then I even make in 2 weeks of working!

She’s been bragging about all of the presents she’s boughten for her kids for Christmas and posting pictures on facebook about “wrapping Christmas presents” which is what ever.

The part that really gets me is she messaged me and just like every other year saying she is getting the Christmas Bureau so his kids can have even more presents then laughs about it like it’s some kind of free services everyone should take advantage of no matter how well off you are I don’t understand how someone can be so greedy and take away from kids and families in need.

She’s my friend but it’s really disgusting and I don’t know how to approach her about the fact that she is taking from people who are truly in need.

  3. Definitely report this person to the Christmas bureau. That is disgusting behavior. That service is only for people that won’t have a Christmas. If more people do That, then eventually nobody will have a christmas

  9. I knew someone like this. She used everything she could. Ended up with a Habitat house too. Some people are scammers with no shame

  10. Report her they don’t take this lightly. I often need their help and due to this they have less and less each year for the kids.

  12. I know that 2 years ago it was based on income, what showed up on your taxes. Child tax credit is very large amounts now especially if you are low income. (My niece gets over $3000 per month as she has 6 kids) They qualify for various things as it is based on their income and he doesn’t make much more than their Child tax credit.

    So disheartening to hear of the people who take advantage and abuse the various resources (of help) that are available for the ones who are truly in need.

    Some people (too many people) are simply “pigs” … they belong in an actual pig pen full of pig shit … no morals, no ethics, no heart, a total void of virtue(s).

    Sadder yet, is what those people/parents/guardians are showing and teaching their children.
    I FEEL SORRY FOR THEIR CHILDREN!!
    They are being robbed of and stripped by their very own caregivers of the important things to be learned in and of life.

    Tell your “friends” … that they are shallow and the scum of the earth.
    Tell your “friends” … they are ruining (or have ruined) their children.
    and for what … ? some plastic toy garbage… taking food from the ‘food bank’ meant for the many hungry people out there…

    Tell “yourself” … “Gee, I just posted this about my friends … ? … and I just shouted out all over the place what kind of people I associate with”

    Hmmm, OP – How do you feel now?

  18. Hi, you should report her. She’s taken advantage of the Christmas bureaus generosity. She’s no friend when she does that at least in my books. Btw, there’s no such word as boughten. “She bought for her kids.” Is the grammatically correct word to use. Sorry couldn’t resist…Lol hope you have a good Christmas cheers

    Everyone wants to “report people” these days. That pisses me off. She is clearly not even aware of her insensitivities, maybe she lacks empathy… who knows. But what I do with people like this is, I share some real life stories that I experienced or read about or heard about. On MANY occasions I have opened people’s eyes (and hearts) to be more compassionate & considerate people. One story I would share with this woman is something I see a couple times a year – how wonderful children open lemonade stands for the purpose of donating all the money to a good cause. Believe me, timing that story right, will make her heart sink with guilt. Add some more to your conversations weekly. I usually start my comment with “I used to think like that until…” that way she won’t be too offended by your comment to get the point.

    Heres the breakdown:
    If you TRULY need something like the Christmas Bureau, you aren’t laughing about it. Chances are, if you need it, you don’t want it, and you want to give it to the truly needy.
    If you are actively seeking it out because you feel entitled to it, YOU DON’T DESERVE IT.
    It sounds like this person is much too selfish to even deserve the things they have.

    It sucks… but life isn’t fair, get used to it. One guy I used to work with paid about 2500/mo. of child support partly because of his tax bracket… we worked 12+ hours a day, only to be punished harder. At the time the woman took the last cheque and took a trip to the Dominion Republic.
