I have met a friend here in mylot since she added me i also accepted her. One day she posted something asking for help and promised to pay. i am not after the payment. i helped her because i really know the stuff. but nothing happened. she didnt even have the courage to say thank you. what i hate about this situation is the attitude. once you promise something you have to abide what you have said. people are not idiots you can always fool.. THERE WILL BE NO NEXT TIME!

Well i know what you mean because trust me i have been in your position and i can say although it's hard to admit it but most guys including me can't help helping a girl out in trouble or maybe not so much in trouble also. I have also been asked to help many girl(space) friends of mine not in here but in a game where one has to pay some money to get membership. There i didn't even know how to pay although i tried to pay for my gf which didn't work and she shifted her focus to a guy who could afford to pay her membership for her. I will never be fooled again and i plan not to fool someone anyways... P.S. I am not sure about the latter part... Cheers!

lol.. the second paragraph is just so funny.. it only shows her true color.. lol... but in my case, there was really nothing in my mind when i helped her since the stuff was just so easy. i didnt earn, i spend money for the answers to be scanned. lol... anyway, i hope she is okay now.. i know the subject is hard in her part.

We are left feeling embarrassment and shame when we are fooled by someone. Self esteem and self confidence are at a new low. We are often angry with ourselves for allowing a situation to arise where we can be fooled. We feel taken advantage of and vow to never let it happen to us again. I always feel like everyone knows how foolish i was to believe in someone. It can be difficult to rise above, but life does go on.

yeah you are right but in my case it is not that big since it was not really a big deal. she just let me answer her assignment in algebra.

When someone fools me, I'd definitely feel upset, betrayed and maybe even hurt. Especially in your situation when you helped a random person but didn't even do what she promised, to add insult to injury, she never even thanked you for the gesture. You shouldn't have trusted a random person but I guess your too generous. That's very good of you, but sometimes, being good would bite you in the end no matter how much you have helped a person. Lesson learned. Don't trust anyone especially in the internet. I hope she'll pay you back what she owed. But if not, just think of it on a positive note that what you did was an example of an ARK. Act of Random Kindness. Best of luck.

it is okay with me if she will not pay me because it is just $5. hope she will pass her subject. i help her because i know the subject the wants me to answer. she better didnt promise anything. i will still help her. maybe she just forgot what she have posted.. hahalol..

That's kind of you to do so. I guess she may have reasons why she haven't paid you what she promised yet. but keep your fingers crossed. If she doesn't pay, at least you've done your part to extend your help to someone who needs it. Like her Algebra problem!

Hiya markle, Sorry to hear about your plight with the mentioned person. I don´t understand that kind of attitude either. You are right no one should promise if they cannot fulfill their promises later on. I gave an offline Class to someone of English they did not pay me but they said they would. It was not the only thing they also left the Book and the Cd here and from that Day to this I have not heard a word from the Person either. I helped her pass her Exam because I got to know about it and she came pleading for me to help her with a very special Class as she had done no studying on the subject either.

Hiya markle, If they had just said I passed my Exam that would have been enough it would have been a sort of thank you because I would have known that I had done a good Job of it. But they did not so I had to find out the other way instead. Also I dislike being burdened with Books and Cds that don´t belong to me either. Well that´s life for you.

Hi Markleob, I'm pretty much a sucker so it isn't hard to pull one over on me. It's one thing when it is all in fun but when they deliberately take advantage of your kindness then that is another thing all together. I'm like you....I don't go after the person or bug them over it. They know who they are and what they did and if they can live with it...all the power to them. I do remember who and what they are though. I will tell others so they don't get taken by this person and they will never get the opportunity to mess with me again. Your word and your good name are everything. In the end, these people get known as someone who can not keep their word and they burn out.

I don't think that she fools you. She is not fair play. Don't be like her and don't play with the people like her. That's enough for your thinking.

for me i will feel the guilt of trusting and most likely i will hate myself for letting myself to trust others. frankly speaking, i believe you have a good reasoning because i believe that a person who is in a bi trouble and really needs help and receive the help that he needs will actually have a great debt of gratitude.

I am going to be really upset when someone make a fool of me. I don't easily trust people. They have to earned it in the hard way. That way I won't easily be fooled. But sometimes the one we really trust is the one who will fool us. When that happens there's no more second chances for me. I will forgive them but I will never forget what they did.

Hello Mark, don't worry i'll pay if i have a math problem, it's just that i don't need math right now Who is this Mylotter that didn't seemed to settle your part of the bargain. really, you know when ever i hear people doing this, it hesitates me to add them or retain them in my friends-list. No word of Honor i presumed. i hope you tell me so that i wouldn't add this person. i don't want that kind of people in this site.

Hi, markleob. I don't like this at all. I had something like this happen to me before too. I never received any money from this person at all. They said that they was going to give me some money, but they never did. I have moved on past this. If someone says that they are going to do something for you, they should own up to their word. If they don't, then they just made an unbroken promise to you.
