Yesterday my neighbor gave me a small bag of potatoes that she had gotten at a food distribution center & didn't want - I was very grateful! because I'm quite sick w/ this %$#@#^ cold again & didn't know what I was going to eat!
Down the street from me is a thrift store ... and how often I see them load up their pickup truck w/ absolute old broken-down can't save it JUNK that people drop off at their doors. "Well, it's the thought that counts, right??? They were trying to make a charitable donation!" Bosh! What thought is that, when you simply hand the junk off to someone else to get rid of?!
Same thought for the donator to a food distribution center for poor people w/ these potatoes ...
I cooked them and cooked them and let me tell you! THOSE POTATOES WOULD HAVE MADE GOOD WEAPONS - EACH ONE OF THEM, SMALLER THAN THE SIZE OF THE PALM OF MY HAND, COULD HAVE EASILY TAKEN OUT A WINDOW WITH A VERY EASY TOSS!
And speaking of toss ... yeahhhh ...
Listen - when you have thoughts of donating to help the poor --
PLEASE MAKE SURE IT ISN'T GOING TO MAKE THERE LIVES MORE DIFFICULT OR WORSE!!!
