On Tuesday of last week British beg-packer Jacob Stroner became the latest in a long line of Millennials expecting strangers to pay for their world travels.
In a grammatically incompetent appeal on his GoFundMe campaign Stroner asked for donations to fund his next trip to South East Asia.

Calling it ‘Travelling Disaster,’ Stroner complained about visa, passport and missed flights during his last trip due to a damaged passport, which also led to airport detentions in both Bangkok and Vietnam.
He complained that he had missed flights as his passport was ‘not valid for travel,’ without explaining why or what he had done to it.
After spending his savings on alternative flights home he has immediately obtained a new, valid passport and wants to get back to Asia as soon as possible, as long as somebody else pays for it.
Amazingly this self-entitled snowflake has managed to raise £372 but his appeal has not been well received throughout the ex-pat communities of Bangkok and Hanoi who are constantly bombarded with requests to help fellow countryman who have ‘run out of money’ and offer up a range of excuses.
A recent story detailing the epidemic of ‘beg-packers’ traveling through SE Asia sums up the problem and, perhaps, explains why so few people living here have any patience for the beggars and the chancers anymore.
