I did pay over half of it back ($700), so I still owe $600, hardly over $1000, but I guess it's enough. The fact is, I simply cannot pay it back. I can't make payments because I don't make enough money even to pay rent. I live where I live out of the good graces of the person I'm living with, but I don't know if that situation will last forever. I could give about $10 a month max. Anything more would mean I would have to make sacrifices that would eventually take a toll on my health. I'm sorry but I just can't do it. Paying $10 a month to wait for the chat ban to be lifted is hardly worth it; every dime counts. I'm not
I wish people would stop saying I stole the money. I didn't. With the exception of about $100 for something I needed, I never used it for personal gain. Most of it did wind up assisting children, and that's all I can say. It kills me that I can't tell anyone where the money went because I'm sure most of you wouldn't mind. While it didn't go to the original destination, it helped children and that's what's important, isn't it?
Moreover, the original punishment did not specify anything about the money; that was tacked on later. I feel this is unfair. I have gone well over the original ban, and by my own choice. I am not withholding the money out of choice; I would pay it back in a second if I had it to pay back. I don't even own a car; the most valuable things I own are my computer and my DVD player, and I need my computer for work. I could get about $50 tops out of my DVD player, but watching movies is one of the few sources of enjoyment I have, so I won't sell it anyway.
Well, at the very least can you give me a temporary reprieve, just for tonight? I really need to talk to someone.
