I haven't seen one Salvation Army kettle this season.

Thank e-commerce sales for the shortfall. People don't go into shopping centers in the numbers that they use to. Also in many cases everyone uses credit/debit cards and don't carry cash, I don't.
The bell ringers I have run across have all seemed very polite and they wish you Happy Holidays. Many don't have adequate coats or hats I get the feeling they ring the bell because the Army gives them a couple hots and a cot. I feel sorry for them, even gave a guy a couple of bucks directly and he put it in the kettle. I give them any change I have on me when I pass by. Salvation Army is a very good charity organization.

Maybe people are sick of working their asses off for the man and having to take care of people who arent worth the air they breathe.

The reason I didn't give a penny to the salvation army this year is because they have ousted Melania Trump when she tried to help. They won't work with her, and like she said, they are putting politics before helping people.

So if they are short money that's their own fault. I will never give to them again and last year I picked two angels from the tree and spent over $100,00 on each.
Never again!

Bob (who likes to slob knob), I've rang the bell with my family and have known many others who actually don't do it for a hot and a cot. It's called volunteering.

Barney, are you always such a bitter old fuck? Are you the guy who's just always getting fucked over while some other guy gets his? Are you the guy who sits around and say "why should they get that" rather than being happy with where you are in life and what you have? Man, your shitty attitude must suck the life out of any room you're in and take so much effort.

^^actually you're boring as fuck. 9:51AM is right. I seriously doubt you're young...IF you are, you're one pathetic loser. You post too much and never have anything to say. You're a fucking downer.

Chances are you either are blowing 9:51 or are him.
