If she's that retarded she doesn't deserve the $10 an hour they would pay her.


Damn cyber beggars

So gofundme is turning into the internet equivalent of standing out by the highway off-ramp with a begging sign scribbled on cardboard? Only without all the hassle of standing around in the hot sun?

This person has a job, but no desire or ability to plan, scrimp, and save for her dreams and goals (which are NOT heartbreakingly out of reach for a normal person, like some life-changing surgery costs are for children, etc.) and just wants US to throw OUR OWN HARD EARNED CASH AT HER???!!!!





We need an answer to gofundme...is there already a "gofuckyourself" website in existence? If not there should be.

Man, you guys don't miss ANYTHING on stuff people put out on the internet. I did not even SEE that tiny thing.

(This is why I post no photos on Arfcom, you guys are SCARY. I can just imagine some the posters doing that CSI "enhance" and picking up all sorts of information I don't want out from various reflections off shiny surfaces and such. NOBODY needs to know how many dustbunnies I got under my couch. NOBODY. )

Oh hell no.
Link Posted: 10/3/2014 8:12:22 AM EST
So, she wants us to pay for her advanced? Who paid for basic? Will she want others to pay for medic later?

fuck it, lets all just give anyone money for anything they want.

4000 for AEMT? That's fucking retarded. My paramedic cert cost me around $6k at nearly four times the time investment. Hell, she can move here and we'll put her through the AEMT class for free.

I don't know....

I read the request and I can think of a lot of worse things I could donate towards. Seems like a driven young lady trying to better herself.

Her written skills, if she wrote that, are pretty good. And she seems passionate about the career.

It never hurts to ask politely for help and we are free to choose not to give, unlike welfare where you are required by law and threat of very bad things if we don't pay our taxes to give to the lazy and useless people.

Why not. It might save us on the future student loan bailout and it's better than involuntary taxpayer aid. I have my own students to support, but I hope she gets it covered.

Nobody is forcing you to contribute. She could be going to school on taxpayer dollars and no one will ask you about that one.

Not at my school, at least as far as academics go. Enroll with a certain GPS/ACT score and you get X amount of money automatically.

Dude. $600, 3 months here.


Accelerated format is $1500 and two weeks in Bloomington, IN at Pelham Training. That's the route I went a couple years ago. There is at least one other arfcommer who has been through it. He was in my class.

I wonder what the difference in training is. 7 months vs 3 months. Plus 2 18 hour shifts with the Memphis fire department ambulance and 1 10 hour shift in an emergency room. Do you guys have to do national registry and fisdap?

In Indiana, if you take your EMT classes through Indiana's Community College, Ivy Tech, you are eligible for all the financial aid that is available to anyone else going to school.

Yes, get NREMT-B with the class, apply for reciprocity to get IN EMT-B cert. I can't remember if FISDAP was extra when I did my medic class, but we did it. I didn't use FISDAP for NREMT-B.

My fire department will put any of our volunteer firefighters through the EMT or AEMT class for free. To be hired FT, you must have at least an EMT-B cert.

We had to pass fisdap with an 80 or better by the end of August. A true pain in the ass. 15 started in January and 6 of us made it to the end. There's still a couple who didn't pass national registry. Which is just as bad as fisdap.

financial aid covered mine except for books.

I see what you're saying and if people want to contribute, good for them...............but...............

I was poor as shit and managed to pay for my paramedic program by working at night and going to school in the day.

I will set a goal of $1,000,000. I really need that much. If the final tally falls a little short, I should still be able to slash my living expenses enough to make it last for a few years.

Your smile looks too happy and is making me suspicious.

Since I forgot this was still GD, I may need to qualify my statement as a suggestion for a NON-PORN, non-sex-focused in any way "gofuckyourself" website that exists to tell the shakedown artists of gofundme that they suck.

And I now feel like Homer Simpson in his attempt to cover / counteract all the possible negatives when he tried to make a wish on the monkey paw or magic lamp (can't remember which it was)
