    I was one of the first to sigh up for paypal when I started an ebay account all those years ago when paypal first began, now its one of 2 main checking accounts I use regularly, not just for online transactions either...Paypal has been very dependable for me, my paychecks are direct deposited to them too...

    (From Gene Steinberg)

    Hello,

    It’s been a rough spring, although the stimulus checks from the IRS really helped us get through the latter part of April and May.

    But the past week has been a mess!

    Last week, while driving on the Route 60 freeway in Tempe, the left front tire had a major blowout, and soon popped off the wheel. I made it to an offramp, but not before the wheel itself was badly damaged.

    So I had to survive for a few days with short drives around the neighborhood using the temporary spare until I could afford a new tire and wheel.

    And there’s now another expense.

    On Saturday night, after yet another day of temperatures well above 100, the car battery failed.

    So I’m stranded for the time being.

    If you’re in any position to provide a little help, as always I appreciate your donations, whatever you can send. And I know it’s not easy.

    While the online stalkers are still doing their dirty deeds, I continue to ignore them. One of the worst offenders tried to clutter my email box recently, but he was quickly banned (blacklisted), and those filthy messages were forwarded to his service provider.

    If you have any questions at all about my situation, please write.

    A pandemic sweeps the world, the United States is both out of work and on fire, and Gene Steinberg needs a car battery and a tire. Also, someone sent him filthy messages. Please help.

    I received 3 confirmed emails. this one did come from GS. Thank you for letting us know. Some GS mails may not be sent via mass mailings
    Or GS may be sending them to a select few.
    the wheel on the car only would be damaged if you DRIVE on the flat for any length of time.

    A screenshot sent by a SGRC member.
    I did not doubt a email was sent . but rather if this came from GS. I'm now absolutely sure . I'm just thinking he sent it to a small audience..

    So. I bet the person who sent those "filthy messages" is quakin' in fear of Gene's phalanx of crack, pro bono lawyers! An "attempt to clutter" charge is nothing to sneeze at.

    Steinberg and his wife both get Social Security money each month. He probably gets money from his website. How is it he can’t get tires for the car? It sound like so much BS to me.

    My favorite line in this begmail is:

    And there's now another expense.

    Wow, this never happens to the rest of us. Nobody ever has unexpected expenses come up from time to time, sometimes even two or three in a row. This is just life for normal folks, not something to write and beg for money over.

    Gene, what are you doing driving around in a heap like that? If the battery is toast, the car must be at least a few years old. Tires worn out too? Maybe it's trying to tell you something. What the heck do you think they make new cars for?

    Well as it happens, first thing this morning one of the fleet here at Pressboard Estates barely started. So I need a battery too. I never thought of sending out an email plea to get someone to buy me one. Maybe I'll try GoFundMe or something. If I get enough for two batteries, I'll be sure and help you out. So you can get that poor old wreck down to the dealership and get rid of it.

    If a car is important to you, then it must have maintenance occasionally. I am quite sure Steinberg hasn’t spent a dime on his car. Now he is surprised that his car needs fixed. Of course he has no money to fix the car. Does this guy ever think ahead to things like this? The answer is ‘no’.

    To be fair I think it is all BS. His car isn't that old, remember he bought a brand new one a few years ago (during the height of the begging and then bragged about it). I think it is just time for Schemey to get a new one and it is everyone's duty to help. He is simply trying to make it easier for people who can't afford a new one themselves to send him money by concocting a BS story about an emergency. If he just said "send money for my new car" it wouldn't really work.

    The more I think about it, Steinberg’s post shows just how irresponsible he is. Bald tires and a bad battery don’t happen overnight. I only hope there were no occupants in the car when the tire blew out.

    I would bet you there was plenty of money available to eat take out meals three times a day. The sad part is that some individuals will bail out Steinberg one more time.

    Yep and sometimes more extensive repairs are needed, batteries and tires are not considered extensive repairs, those items fall under something called Preventative Maintenance...I've recently spent over 3000 dollars on repairs to my vehicle however 700 dollars of that actually did get spent on tires and a battery, four new tires and a new battery...The rest of that 3k went towards some major repair work in the fuel injection and would you believe 700 dollars for a new radiator, never thought they cost that much...It's still not running right and going back in the shop soon for some electrical work, after that I'm considering to trade it in on something else, because of the higher than normal repairs cost I've been paying lately, but it also may not need anything else done to it for a while lol...

    My point, simply expounding upon yours, is that preventative maintenance and scheduled maintenance are required for these vehicles we operate...You're going to be faced with those ordinary repairs bills sooner or later Gene Steinberg, you can only ignore changing your tires for so long, that's your responsibility not anyone else...I know what's it's like to be tight on cash, and if you really are, do something responsible people do, create budgets and live within your means...
