Hmm.

I do believe I've made it through this entire Christmas season (at least, from Thanksgiving onward) without encountering a Salvation Army bell-ringer. I wonder how that happened? I guess I only really shopped at Target (who I believe dis-invited them) and HEB, they don't station Sally guys outside of Goodwill. That would be a conflict of interests.

The sad part:
They were getting robbed and assaulted, making getting the volunteers to ring the bells difficult, and so, it was just easier to have them at none than to just have them at a few.

Re: The sad part:
That is sad. My only guff with them is that the organization's...not real nice on gay rights. I always feel queer-guilt when I shop there.

While dealing with the prescription nightmare, I had to deal with that ^(*&^(*^ bell five times.

I envy your bell-free christmas.

Ohh, ohh, if they DID put them outside maybe we could see some sort of Salvation Army vs. Goodwill battle royale! I bet on the Goodwill guys.. Lifting stuff, probation dudes.. But.. that bell is sorta heavy, and if this was a Anime, it would be REALLY heavy and have sonic powers too. Or become a sword. :: thinks :: This could be a series..

That's true, the goodwill guys are scary big people sometimes, but the Sally hires people with mad, rolling eyes, so...my bet's actually on the Salvation Army.

I'd donate to that. It would be much more interesting than bumfights...the volunteers going at it. The bell vs donation truck.
