    This is an open letter to folks who think the Salvation Army is the city dump.

    Do us all a favor by disposing of your piss soaked mattress, broken furniture, old paint and other hazardous chemicals, ripped and stained clothing, and anything else you've got that you're trying to "donate" instead of taking to the dump, on your own dime.

    And why are you dropping off food that has an expiration date as far back as 2010?

    I know you rejects shop here, I see you drop off toxic waste then pull around, park and head into the store. So, why would you dump shit and expect a good deal on good stuff in the store?

    Please die in a fire and have a merry Christmas.

    Yes, often...I see so much thrown out that could benefit the less fortunate in recent times. We live in a throw away age, disturbing what gets wasted or turned to trash after a single use.

    but some things need to go to the incinerator, agreed.

    Put it this way... If you were in need of some used funiture and had limited funds for whatever reason and went into a thrift store to buy a mattress and frame, would you buy one that is dripping piss and reaking from twenty feet?

    Would you buy clothing that is wet and mildewed?

    Would you buy a table with three legs cause one is missing?


    And... To be fair, most stuff I see coming through is pretty sweet. Lots of stuff with the tags still on. But some people really make me wonder about human nature.

    When my mom passed, almost all of her things went to the Salvation Army. My neighbor is a big shot with them. They do great work, not just by arranging donations, but many of the people who volunteer for the pickups and such so desperately need a chance to do something good to turn their lives around.

    I prefer Goodwill, though for bigger items or oddities, St. Vincent de Paul is the place to be.

    I haven't donated to the Salvation Army since 1996, when they organized an intermittent series of demonstrations trying to shut down my porn shop. When I want to help poor folk, I donate to Good Will.

    SVdP always had cool stuff in Ventura County. Haven't seen one out here yet.

    At least there not "for profit" Like the others. I don't know if or where you work, but I'll wager you've stolen from your employer one way or another be it a pencil or a few minutes on the time clock.

    I do have a serious stick up my rear for United Way. The get companies to strong arm their employees for donations. Also, their overhead is immense!

    I've never stolen from my employer because it's me.

    Sorry about that. I accidentally took the stuff I was going to donate to SA to the dump, and took the stuff I was going to take to the dump, to the SA.

    By the way, that wasn't just urine dripping off the mattress. I used a condom; I hope you had rubber gloves on. That hooker was NASTY. Just sayin'
