Please pray for me to stop being absent minded and pay attention to the right things in life ...

Postby Blessed » Tue Nov 07, 2017 1:06 am

Tonight I gave an Uber driver a $400.00 tip by MISTAKE thinking it was $4.00 in ones because I am an IDIOT and a BUFFOON and a MORON.

All from not paying attention.

The money was wasted and did not go to a good cause! The driver was a dirty old man. I told him I was going to Dellano Bar because it was quiet and low key and not many people ( I don't like socializing at bars I sit alone in a corner) and high prices to keep out the riff raff. He said maybe you will meet a nice rich girl there. I said maybe I hope so, a nice girl would be nice I don't care about money.

We started takling and he goes on a tangent about how he goes to Columbia, Thailand and the Philippines to have sex with hookers. I could not believe what I was hearing. He went on and on said he is so old he does not care anymore he will put it anywhere, is done with American women, and doesn't care if he cheats on his wife beccause she deserves it etc. going on about how he bangs hookers and other horrible things in 3rd world countries and how great it is they are so poor and desperate for an old man like him.

I was totally shocked taken aback not paying attetnion.

I had $9,400 and four $1's in my wallet. I grabbed from the wrong side. I intended to tip this guy 4 dollars because I felt sorry for him and I almost always tip these drivers because I feel sorry for them for having such crummy jobs and feel guilty if I don't that I should because if I was in that crummy job I would need the money. I should not have given this guy anything! I don't know why I decided to.

I just got back and found out it was $400 by mistake not 4 $1's . I am sick to my stomach and very upset at myself because this guy was a bad person. I should not have tipped him anything. This is my punishment for not doing the right thing and tipping him I'm sure.

This guy game me 1 star (so I will not show up on his list again) on Uber and stole my money. He did not steal it. But he did steal it. He knows it was not a $400 tip. I said I just have Franklins here is 4 $1's.

Uber does not even have a phone number. I'm trying to find out if Uber has mandatory cameras in the car.

It does not matter I am very upset and this is all my fault. I have also been making mistakes in other areas. Always non intetional oversights that I catch later.

I am being very stupid. I am loney upset I am not married and trying to fill a void in my life. This needs to stop. I've cut back on my drinking but I need to get my focus back and become the old me again. I cannot believe I did this. I gave the money to a bad person. This is all my fault. This is horrible. I am an IDIOT I am a FOOL. :crying:

On a serious note, put it in God's hands and pray if he wants you to do anything about this.

It may feel like your money is wasted but God can redeem the situation if you trust him. We can't see the situation from God's point of view.

Why you carry so much in your wallet? That itself is an accident waiting to happen. I'm lucky if I carry $4, everything is just card these days. But then, we don't tip in Australia except to say be good to your mother or something the like.

Don't worry. The sickness of doing or saying something stupid normally wears off after a couple of days. :P Until you do or say something else that is also stupid. It happens.

K: we don't tip in Australia


A good tip in Australia is usually something along the lines of, "Don't open more beers than you can drink in one setting, mate."

"Urp!"

Overcompensating. Women treat you better when they think you have money. It's unfair but true.

Yes, great tip that one! If you rock up at a mate's place and he tells you that, they're giving you a green light to open up every single beer you see in their fridge.

I've seen K on YouTube. In fact, I've been stalking him, and I've subscribed to his YouTube channel.

He looks like your average Aussie man. He's handsome, in a boyish kind of way. Not effeminate, but not a hairy beast of a man either.

Blessed,

Don't beat yourself up over this. You made a mistake. It happens. Just think of the positives...

Like for instance, just think how far that $400 can go in Thailand. That $400 can feed a Thailand prostitute's family for an entire year!

And also, now that your wallet is $400 lighter, your back won't hurt as much!

And also, that's $400 that you won't spend on alcohol for yourself!

See how I can turn a negative into a positive situation?
