So.... was the money for transportation to the job or for rent? And how much was it for? You seem to have contradicted yourself.
1) Reason for Rent-
"Right now I am staying at a guesthouse in Queens New York. I have two days paid left. If I can't stay here, I will lose my job and be homeless. I need to pay one additional week so i can keep working." (The math then shows you pay a minimum of $920 a month)
"My job starting Tuesday pays 14 dollars an hour same day pay."
Why is staying there a condition for having a job? Sad your renters won't take the $140 until Tuesday but that is besides the point.
2) Reason for Transportation
"200 would help me go back and fourth from work in Jersey though so I asked for that."
If you don't have a place to live but live in the homeless shelter, why can you not work? You now have $140 for transportation which is only 8 miles each way. That is enough money for the week via Uber, even though you will get paid on Tuesday already and will have much more. That is also plenty of money to buy a bike (10-20 bucks) at Goodwill/Facebook Marketplace/Craigslist and have free transportation as well for now/the future. It will also save you money and be a good investment.
"my goal of 230 dollars"
**$140 Donated from Tk/Tora**
This didn't make sense so I asked you to clarify the amount. Your response was: "Yes brother 100 more. 200 would help me go back and fourth from work in Jersey though so I asked for that."
Now we've went from asking $230 to $200. You've been given $140, so you should only need $60, yet you ask for $100 more. The $140 plus another $100 would be $240 vs $200.
Conclusion: (super tired I hope this all makes sense, lol)
The reason for the lack of donations is exactly what Bara just pointed out. "Thanks you worthless shitheads" is your response after you just referred to everyone as "family", which highly suggests you are full of it.
You are upset that people who don't actually know you and who you've been a jerk to for years (and apparently still are) didn't give you enough free money. At this point, you've probably now burned all bridges. People don't believe you, or your sincerity, and/or won't donate because of the way you've acted in the past. The next issue is that, given your reaction, you fully expected the handout.
Unfortunately, for people who ask for money, it's always a day late, a buck short. I do feel sympathy for your situation and do wish you pull yourself out of it but I don't think you are ready for that. I may be wrong. I don't know you personally. If you were ready and THAT CLOSE, you would beg, Gofundme (too tired is a bad excuse, esp when you aren't working till Tuesday....), or find some alternative solution.
