Firstly, apologies if this is in the wrong forum.Any mod who wants to move it, feel free.
Alright, down to business.
For the last three months I've been traveling around Canada, more or less on a shoestring budget and was managing rather well until last week.I met a friend In Toronto and we jumped the Via-Rail to Vancouver. Beautiful, right?.One problem, the friend I met up with has now run out of money, and I don't mean spending money I mean money, money.Our accommodation runs out on the 6th of August and I don't really have the funding to pay for any more, unless I dip into my 'return flight fallback' account. Not super enthused on that option.
Now, once I realised what was happening I of course started hunting a job like Donald Trump on heat.Unfortunately, the only place that has given me reliable work so far was a temp agency, and that job was throwing 30 pound bags of rice, 6 hours a day for $8 an hour.Hardly worth the time, effort or bus-fare.:facepalm:
I have enough to cover my own flight and some of my friend's, we need about $900 to float the rest. This is an unfeasible amount to make by legal methods and I really don't have the connections or knowledge to make it by illegal means in Vancouver.
Sooooo, Now options are rapidly running out.
They are as follows;
1.Wait and pray that one of the 5 job interviews I've got amounts to something, this involves using my return flight money for accommodation/moving into a homeless shelter while we wait.Most places say they are hiring for September, this is not soon enough. Any money I spend in this time Is just money that needs to be made up again in the future.
2.Jump a freighter back to Toronto, or at worst down to Portland. I can work for stay in Toronto, which at least gives us some time to burn.
3.I fly back and beg, borrow or steal the money required for his flight and wire it over to him. Probably the best plan in practice, but my least favourite because it's going to be so hard to sell to him.
4.We become homeless, I surreptitiously get him addicted to cocaine, he falls into the vicious cycle of sucking cock for coke and I skip town immediately.Requires a bunch of rohypnol and money for coke I'm not willing to float (without doing both myself). In retrospect I will probably end up doing all the coke. For hygienic reasons I'm not too fond of the cock for coke economic model.
How can you folks help?
Well, I need your suggestions as to what the fuck I can do in this situation.Please refrain from saying anything like "Just bail on his ass", call it misplaced loyalty or ideological naivety but I'm not going to leave him stranded in Vancouver.
Asking for money from people back home is also a non-option, I got myself into this mess and I'll get myself back out.
Also, anyone who knows anything about the transient lifestyle, hopping trains from Vancouver, surviving on little to no money, making money with minimum capital/overheads, male prostitution and/or a place to get a lot of coke cheap in the Vancity area NOW WOULD BE THE TIME TO POST IT.
Flame and you can go fuck yourself.
Help and I'll do my best to repay the favour one day.
Thanks in advance, Plebert.
