You know I guess I've never really thought about how many "lowlifes" there are out there.....and the really devious ones disguise themselves as good, decent people.
I hit on this subject briefly before but this time I'm really mad. I had NO idea just how big of a problem this was. I guess I try too hard to see the good in everyone, especially at this time of the year.
Our fire department is involved, along with other groups, making baskets for the families in need. I know they are in need all year 'round, but at Christmas it seems to touch more people in a more profound way. Collections are taken up and the food distributed in hundreds of baskets.
I complained about expired food being donated before but I had no idea just how prevalent this practice is. What is with these people? Do they think that just because some one needs some extra help, they are undeserving of food that is fresh? Well, you know, life can turn on a dime and I sincerely and truly hope that each and every person who has purposely given expired food to the needy will someday have to face that problem themselves and be in a position of having to ask for help.
I was informed by the maintenance crew that the dumpster behind the building that is being used to sort out the food for individual baskets was overflowing. Overflowing with what, you ask? Well, with expired food that was donated, that's what. I was appalled. If a huge dumpster can be filled to overflowing just out of ONE building being used to sort baskets, just think what the overall picture must be for say......the city.....how about the county?
Unbelievable! Why even bother to donate? Just throw it out....or are they hoping that the needy families will have to be subjected to such humiliation? It does make one wonder. Well, I can assure them that there are good people at work, sorting through things, just to make sure that only good food is given out and you low-life trash in sheep's clothing will have to think of some other evil to do to make your life worth living.....how can you even look at yourself in the mirror? Shame on them all.
