It's the thought that counts?!

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!!!

  1. I agree! Donations are supposed to be helpful. Thanks for stopping by my place and leaving a comment. I need to get more savvy with social media. If I could figure out to easily put the twitter, facebook and pinterest at the bottom of my posts that would be great. I'm going to take a look around your blog so I'll stop typing for now. Just started following you.

  2. i have found that people clean out their pantries and donate expired items that they don't want and that's sad!! it happened here at the shore after sandy....volunteers then had the task of checking everything and in turn tossing things!!

    thanks for the share on twitter, i don't have an account. my technology cloud is so dark right now, i could not even entertain that idea!!
