    A moral dilema that you would all fail...

    Is that two 'ls' or two 'ms'???

    I came over to this neck of the woods to earn money to build the house (buy a second car, pay orf me beer debts, finally pay for the studies (no grant for the shite I come out with... , etc...). But, I intended to pay for it meself; I have always paid for everything meself...

    The stupid oil rich fookers have given me a loan. My contract is up in 6 weeks. They don't have any security of any sort. I really do not enjoy working here (actually they are horrible employers that treat you like shite...). I have transfered all the loan money to Thailand, and the missus still speaks to me (probably thinks she can get more...).

    It'll take me 24 months to pay the loan back. The job is easy. Life here is easy. I like to earn. I have a high level of (naive) idealism, etc.

    I could just come home and fuk the loan orf; would you? Really, it's crazy that they gave me the cash...

    I am gonna stay here and work and pay the loan off. Me work mates tell me I'm crazy not to leave and just take the 'gift'. Your opinion?
    How do I post these pictures???

    I would do it in an instant.

    Why not sign up for some credit cards there and default on them too ?

    There's the long view and the short view.

    Now that everybody is engaged in the race to the bottom so as to be inclusive, the long view is out of fashion.

    Used to be that the long view built society's advancement. Is it a lost cause? Not sure. But I'll stick to the long view. It's the only hope,

    You'll forever be guilt ridden if you break your contract. They acted with integrity, what do you have to equal that?

    A mans only as good as his word. Break your word and you become "worthless."

    No one forced you to accept the contract Betty. Do the right thing.

    They are wealthy rag heads.

    They would probably laugh if you fucked off with your two nickles.

    And people always think that crime is such easy money. They use the excuse of integrity but in reality they just don't have the balls to do it. No money is easy. Not even crime. You have to just as smart and shrewed to make money and get away with crime as it does to make money legitimately

    Socal, you seem to think every action, occurrence, situation, whatever is in isolation, suspended in some sort of vacuum not dissimilar to your isolated brain cells.

    It's not. Every single thing you do influences your mindset, the next thing you do, the environment you create around yourself and the outcomes you experience.

    There is no such thing as a free ride, you pay, always.

    And then you bitch like a drain about everything that's going bad around you.

    I wouldn't bet on that.

    Because they are wealthy rag heads, they might be willing to spend more than they have already lost just to really screw you and teach you a lesson.

    Do the right thing.

    I just don't play that game Betty, I'm the sort of guy that helps old ladies cross the road, pay my bills straight up and never rip anyone off.

    The most important thing to me is Karma, fuk some one over on purpose and forever watch your back whilst walking around looking over your shoulder.

    Pay the money back and walk away a big man not a fuking criminal like our mentally challenged dishonest member Socal .

    Jeez Socal, you are nasty little cont ain't ya.

    Be straight up mate and live free.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    You can rationalize away any crime, I am sure people like Socal have no problems with it.
    You only have to wrestle with your own conscience. Not for me, ever. Where I come from and in my family we have Honour.

    After the way Bankers have treated the world population in the past I could quite easily take the money and run.Think of all the Millions of people that were had over with the Banking scams but still people are brainwashed into keeping rank and file.
    If you owe the bank 50,000 and can't pay they take away your house,if you owe them 50,000,000 and can't pay they call you Sir!!!

    They trusted you with the loan; you should honor that trust. It's only money.

    I donated a $100 to DD. How much did you donate ?

    I am fair but I treat every situation differently. I also don't fucking believe in Karma. The biggest kunts I know are blessed with good fortune. How does that work ?

    And a bit about being able to look yourself in the eyes in the mirror each morning.


    Practically, its also about not having to look over your shoulder for the rest of your life - never knowing if or when that decision will come back and bite you.

    Grit your teeth and do the time - walk away free and clear.

    when you are on a good wicket you should keep playing till they tell you to fcuk off.

    think about how much cash you would be throwing down the drain for the period of time they will want you there.

    make hay while the sun is shining - good jobs are not so easy to come by , and as china slows they will be even harder to find

    I was going to say something similar.

    You never know who is connected with whom, and when something bad in your past is going to come back and hit you in the face.
