Habitat for Humanity Pick Up SUCKS

So, they did NOT call me before showing up at my house - not cool. They said they were going to!!

Instead, I got a call from my kid.

I then called them, and said I would be there in 10 minutes. And on my way there, literally a block from my house, I saw that they called and left a vm.

I called immediately, instead of listening to said vm, and the somewhat not so nice lady said they won't be able to pick it up today, literally 10 fucking minutes from when they were 1st there, for several weeks and that I should call Salvation Army.

I asked if they just couldn't turn around because you know, they just left, she said no.


You know, if she was just a little bit nicer, I wouldn't be so damned pissed.

You know, if they had called me BEFORE they showed up, like they were supposed to, I wouldn't be so damned pissed.


So, I called Salvation Army, there will be at my place Monday - and yes they said they would call me before showing up so that I can actually be there!!

Let's hope it goes as planned.

I am going to try to clean up the couch a little bit, vacuum it and see if I can get those little spots out.



  1. I used to work for the organization. Never have I been treated as badly by any employer as I was by the assistant managers at that place. Very abusive and zero respect for basic human dignity of the hourly employees. I cannot express how happy I've been since I quit.

    I am sorry to hear that you were treated badly. Someone who donates should, of course, be treated with a high degree of respect.

    1. Yes, it sounds like working for them would probably be worse than trying to donate! Yikes!!

      I'm glad to hear you're happier now though! That is always awesome :)

      And yes, I agree with you. Some days it seems, a lot of people have forgotten just plain simple common courtesy.
