Dusty.  What a sweet kid.

I really need to talk to the cleaning crew about all the damn dust in this office.

Good on ya, kid. But you've got 1,000 more events to do with your brother before you're gong to outdo Team Hoyt.

Seems awfully entitled to something he wants to push his brother in, and expects it for free. He's basically asking the media for handouts instead of working a job instead.

This is what's wrong with America.

Damn welfare kids. Get a job and stop asking for handouts.

Brewhaus: Damn welfare kids. Get a job and stop asking for handouts.


Actually, he wants a loan, and he is willing to barter for it. He says he will push any other disabled kids in other races in exchange for the use of the chair/stroller.

Good kid. I teared up a little.

His letter was way better than this one. Better margins, too.

It'd be cake they started when he was almost 40.

Each day I seek an article that doesn't piss me off of wish I had more hands to facepalm with.

This is one of them. Thank you. dustmitter.

They should have Sting sing the theme song.

If someone in the area happens to witness this, give them a cheer for me.

All this way into the thread and not ONE pic of Hodor?

Oh, all right. I guess I'll have to do it myself.

Wonder how they'll do in the tough mudder.

Oh crap ... The eyes are waterin'. What a great kid!

Even the shiat-on-everything brigade can't really get it up to dump on this one. A couple of half-hearted attempts that let me know this is still the real world, but hope springs eternal.

I was really good until I got to the 3rd page of the letter. So touching.
 
2013-09-27 06:09:27 PM  
Beautiful letter; beautiful kid.

He had me at "no one is dying" and just asking for a loan.  Kid has great priorities.  Got to be some great parenting going on there.
