Last year, I sent a Christmas card.

...yadda*3

Note that the dates shown are the day the transaction settled. The actual purchase may have been a day or two earlier.

What's particularly remarkable about this is that the gift card activity started within a few days of DStecks giving Chris $1000. Chris blew through $1500 in less than 3 weeks. The day the gift card ran out, Chris was begging for more money.
You fed a manchild who was burnt out of house and home. I only read half the first page of responses. I can only imagine they come from poor people who envy Chris. I salute you Rainboom for your empathy. It was those calories that gave him the energy to make those figurines and drawings. I can only imagine the tard rage from from other autists/spergs who have never been paid for their art who prolly filled 10 pages hating you. Crap. I got my quarterly bonus, might as well send chris 1 k no strings attached. I get the performance art of what he spends it on & the walls of text of the fandase enraged.

edit: i kinda want to give kiwi $500 and christine $1000.

As is quite obvious from this payment history, giving Chris money just enables him to spend irresponsibly. He's been given hand-me-downs his entire life and therefore has never had to learn how to manage his finances responsibly. If I HAVE AUTISM PLEASE LAUGH AT ME would stop giving him money he might actually have to learn something about living on a fixed budget, until then he's just going to splash your cash on fast food and Lego.

I just don't get it.

I'm not going to berate people for sending Chris money because it's their money to do what they want with, but I have to ask what they thought the outcome of doing it was going to be? What could Chris have POSSIBLY spent this money on that would have provided enough "lols" to the forums to make that money worth it?

It's pretty obvious what was going to happen; Chris would waste the money on the same shit he waste all his money on and people on the forums would ridicule him for it. Except Chris got exactly what he wanted and didn't even have to spend his own money to get it. That doesn't seem like something to point and laugh at him for; he's come out on top in all of this.

I mean Chris eats out for nearly every meal, and on top of that brings Barb home a meal. They'd both have a lot more money to spend on other things if they just cooked. I mean I suck at cooking too, but it makes more sense than eating out every time you get hungry. Its also a lot easier to stick to a healthy diet when you buy your food in advance, and not just order it when you're hungry. Chris seems pretty dedicated to the idea of eating healthier, but only if he can do it at McDonald's. You'd think if you just got a brand new kitchen you'd at least try to cook. I'm not claiming I don't go to Mc'Ds or grab mexican often, but the frequency the chandlers do it is extreme. It's certainly unhealthy, but the money their squandering on shitty food has to catch up to them.
Before the fire, I recall the kitchen had been completely swallowed up by Hoard. Wouldn't be surprised if the same thing has happened again.

Why are you assuming OP was looking to obtain "lols" for the forum? What makes you certain that OP didn't was Chris to "come out on top in all of this"?

If OP actually cared about Chris' well-being and sent him that money as an act of charity I doubt they would have made this thread.

Also, you wouldn't just send Chris a "blank check" to spend on whatever he wanted. You'd be better off sending him giftcards to shops that sell "sensible" products.

Not sure on your first point. What I took from the first post in this thread was OP's surprise at Chris having only just spent the gift.

Regarding the second point - what you suggest is quite a paternalistic approach. Maybe OP felt Chris deserved some money but didn't want to put limits on how he could spend it?

@Sonic Rainboom - care to comment?

I wonder why people give Chris so much money? Just seems he should have to earn it and not be just given it for nothing.
I think it's guilt, honestly. However much or little people want to admit it, when they send him hundreds of dollars I think they at least partially believe that Chris "deserves" it as compensation for the trolling or something. (That is to say, when they have some sanity guiding their choices. Insane people like Kengle need not be examined thusly.)

To anyone who feels this describes their feelings, think of it this way... when you send Chris a $500 gift card, all you're giving him is a little more than a week of not worrying about where his happy meals are coming from, then it's right back to square one as if he never received any extra money at all. Does that sound like it makes up for the horrors of his life? Is it really worth being out a month's rent on your end?

Chris' expenditures here are pretty much his daily expenditures. He's not splurging or using the money (more) irresponsibly than usually.

Something people need to keep in mind: Chris lives pretty comfortably, as far as his financials go. He's not being irresponsible by spending his money on fast food. Rather, he's living like how an upper middle class person normally lives. The only difference is that Chris has childish tastes in things.
If Chris has so much money, why all the begging?

It's been apparent for some time that Chris's spending far exceeds the tugboat. SSI/SSDI just isn't that much money.

The donations can't possibly meet Chris's spending rate either. So where is all the money coming from? And what financial crisis happened in September that motivated Chris to go digging through old mail looking for gift cards?

Chris is still buying amiibos and shit from ebay, so we know where some of that money went...

What did Chris "come out on top" of?

Chris blew the money like usual, then went right back to begging for more. Do you think Chris learned anything from this, other than to not throw out mail?

Also, you wouldn't just send Chris a "blank check" to spend on whatever he wanted. You'd be better off sending him giftcards to shops that sell "sensible" products.
What "sensible" products could I have given Chris? Do you really think Chris would change for the better?

It's not like he squandered it in some really ridiculous way like giving it to a lolcow or something.
The real difference between me and Chris has less to do with what we spend our money on, and more to do with priorities, and how we got the money to begin with.

I was hoping you'd give some insight on why you gave Chris the money. Did you think he deserved something? If so, why? Did you want to see how he would spend it? If so, again, why?

Do I really need to explain what should be obvious?

Chris is entertaining. Sometimes getting interesting content from Chris requires a bit of encouragement.

It was mostly harmless, and Chris seems to have enjoyed it. People have done far worse things to Chris than this.
