MY WEIRD BIRTHDAY POST
“Friends, I need a huge favor.
“See, I tried being a sabong agent last month. My master agent asked me for money to keep our account going.”
Added him, “I also had a player who would spend 10k a day so when she asked for an advance I thought she was good for it.
“They both haven’t paid me. Exact amount is 36k.
“That’s my business’ rent money and 2 months amortized rent for my condo this coming Aug 1. I don’t know when they will pay.
“I’ve been doing okay since the pandemic but I ran into a bad streak this year. The second ECQ killed physical store sales at Bulilith Smoked Sausages.
“Customer traffic is starting to normalize but there were 3 months of people not wanting to go out. I needed another source of income.
“Unfortunately, sabong found me. I never gambled before in my life so I didn’t know the effect it has on people.
“Sadly, I’ve come to witness that it is truly an addiction preying on weak minds.”
This made him took to social media to finally ask for some support, “So now, I’m publicly begging for birthday donations. For me.
“Doesn’t matter if it’s 1 or 1000 pesos. Please know that you extending a helping hand is the most important gesture here. Today, I am relying on your kindness.
“PS. If we’re both in need, you can greet me in the comments instead! I was planning to do a community pantry from my sabong earnings but alas. Lol.
“If ever there are excess donations I would gladly use it for that!”
