The recent bushfire tragedy has brought out some inspiring stories in the papers, news programs, radio stations and even forums such as this of the kindness, compassion, good will and generosity that human beings are capable of. And to most, we deserve a pat on the back. But, events such as this also bring out the worst in some people. Firstly, you get the rubbernecks that just wanna see whats happening and generally, just getting in the way and hindering those trying to help. Secondly, you get the looters. Absolute scum and I hope nobody disagrees with me in saying that they are the lowest of the low. Thirdly, you get the scum stealing donations from bars, cafes and where ever the opportunity presents itself. Fourthly, you get the bogus charities set up to blatantly steal money thats been donated out of good will. This is a pre-meditated act. Not like a junkie seeing a jar of money and swiping it. These are thought out and enforced plans to deceive people. Filth. Fifthly, you get $#@@ !$@$# property investors calling up fire victims and realestate agents not 2 days after, trying to buy "scorched land" from the victims. Some even blatantly admitting that there would be some desperate people out there that will need the money. Therefor, offer them fugg all for their land and they should take it! CUN$S!!!! Sixthly, you get %@# %%@@$@ landlords trying to charge DOUBLE their regular rates to rent their properties to fire victims in the area. Lastly, now i read in the paper of some stupid biatch falsely claiming her father had died in the fires in order to claim a $10000 compensation payout. This is AFTER she had already claimed a $5000 funeral grant from centerlink. I honestly dont know how some people look at themselves in the mirror in the morning. Oh, i forgot, I rang up to offer temporary accommodation for fire victims and one of the questions asked on the phone was "are we seeking any kind of re-imbursement or payment for the room?". I laughed and said of course not. Why? The lady said that alot of people had been offering rooms to the victims but only if they were paid correctly for it. So now, they had to ask everyone. Sorry, just needed to vent about some of the absolute scum of society that have reared their ugly heads in the past week.
