This is NOT a joke.

I am NOT asking for handouts.

I started my own business, was doing well, got betrayed, and ended up homeless (I sleep in my car in the parking lot of a 24 hour fitness, so I can work out and then shower and clean up, luckily my membership was paid for through 2008!), with all my stuff (well what I haven't given to goodwill) left in a shed). I haven't told many people because I already feel like a big enough failure...but things have gone a step further, sooooo....

Please look at my list of games, not just the ones for trade, and make me a cash offer. I would prefer people in the DFW area, since I don't have cash for shipping.

This is not a joke. I have the shed until Dec 11th. After that, I pretty much need to have only what I can keep in my car left.

My cell no longer works, so if you can leave a message at:
heinrichsteven@yahoo.com

I go to the library and check my emails on their computers.

Thank you.
Steven

Forgive me if I seem obtuse, but how does one view a list of your games?

By the way, because I regret the circumstances under which you are parting with your games, I would allow you to re-purchase any games I purchase from you at the same price I paid you for them.

Please reply to vcoppola@pribanic.com

Regards,

Vincent

I am unemployed, fired for the first time (the week of Thanksgiving) I understand a little sliver of what you are going through.

I don't have much to offer except my prayers. But I will be doing as much for you.

Don't be too proud to ask for help in other ways too. I am applying for food stamps, successfully got unemployment compensation, and applied for assistance with WI Dept. of Vocational Rehabilitation.

There are programs as such with different names in every state...

Peace,
Christian

Re: I need help, homeless,make offer on my games...NOT a jok
Update:

Someone was nice enough to pay for my cell to keep it on and t-mobile wireless for my laptop so I can now go to any Starbucks or Kinkos and log on, which allows me to put the rest of my stuff up on Ebay and not depend on a library for internet access.

I got about 12 offers for games, several being awesome enough to offer me full price. Today I am doing the first deal, which will keep me from losing my shed tomorrow, and keep me with car insurance (when you live in your car, it is important!)

I still sleep in my car (which I really don't mind) and I am doing my artwork, painting masks, and trying to sell stuff at coventions and flea markets (a friend let me share his space this weekend, but with the weather and the low income area it was in...the dealers outnumbered the customers and no one made hardly anything...I made two dollars on little trinkets!)(One temp job, I got written a hot check and it blew up my account, it's still at about negative $113, so, now I'm leery about who I do temp work for)

One person has offered me a business investment loan. This blows me away and I really hope that it is legit and on the level. I'm not wanting to get my hopes up.

I am waiting to hear back if I can get housing assistance, and I may move to Austin if it comes through.

As bad as it sounds, people simply do not believe my circumstances. I'm a healthy, white male, who is in above average shape (heck, since my 24 hour fitness membership is good till 2008, I work out and shower and clean up everyday!).

Most of the lists I am on, I'm at the bottom of. And, no, I'm not allowed to give plasma...the stroke I had in 1999, from being given the wrong medication prevents that. Most people can't tell that I had a stoke, and since I turned down SSI and disability way back then (because I didn't want to end up like most stroke victims...a victim) I don't qualify for them now.

I figure I will eventually make it through all of this. If I could relearn how to walk and talk and meet doctors and have them not believe I had a stroke, then this current issue is just another character builder. (Tommy--above posting--and can verify, I don't look or act like a stroke victim)

Anyways,

Thank you to everyone you has given me positive support.

I appreciate knowing that people still do care.

Thanks so much for the update. I was hoping to hear some positive developments. (despite the temp incident)

You are doing heroic things, even if they are not visible to those around you.

I am visiting a homeless shelter meal program as a recipient for the first time this week (not totally for need) so that I am on the other side of the serving line.n It will be very significant to me to blend in with the masses there.

I have been there once as a volunteer.

But this time, it will be as a recipient. Sure, my situation will not be as grave as some. But there are hundreds of un or underemployed folks who come to that program.

If nothing else, the experience of unemployment is deadly to my pride. Not the self-esteem sort of pride... the pride of self-centered indulgence, the sort of me-first thinking which is a cancer of our society and which means that there is no difference between myself and my oppressors...

Anyway, I am still praying for you. You are a true hero, and will come out on the other side of this as a bigger success than ever before. Like you said, you've already learned to walk again...

I hope this doesn't discourage others from buying your games, but I feel bad profitting from your misfortune.

Hang in there.

If you move to Austin, come game with us.

You'll be in our thoughts and prayers.

Don't feel bad buying my games.

Things happen for a reason, and I don't mind people getting a good deal, in fact, I wish more people were buying...there have only been a few that have actually carried through...it seems the War of the Rings was a big issue, and now that it is gone, several people have changed their minds.

There have been several people who donated directly to the paypal, which startled me...

Thank you just doesn't seem like enough anymore.
