  • Not to be a rain cloud but in my area the thrift stores like Goodwill are staffed with people who are sentenced to court ordered community service for things like assault and battery, drug possession, theft, indecent exposure, etc. etc.

    I work with a guy who got into a fight with his daughters boyfriend (boyfriend was a drug dealer) and he pulled a knife on him and ordered him off his property.  Mr. drug dealer thought it would be fun to call the cops on him and give him a criminal record (he actually told him this).  Dad was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon and he got 100 hours community service which he worked off at the local thrift store on weekends.
  • I'm going to be a Debbie Downer for pointing this out, but the guy not only identified the kind of business he owns, he let his identified friend invite "a News-Leader reporter along."  He then approached a younger, female clerk with a creepy, "Oh I think Santa IS going to visit YOUUUU tonight..."

    He's doing a good thing overall, but he's doing it to massage his own ego first and foremost.  There are plenty of people who donate to the needy (anonymously) because it's the right thing to do, without making a public spectacle of the needy in the process.
  • Earlier in the day, Burk had invited a News-Leader reporter along.

    :\

    Still, people who probably needed some extra cash got some, and he didn't have to, so.. that's pretty nice.

    Well, certainly shunning them should straighten them right out.

    Too late.
  • Self-promotion at its finest: invite a reporter, give the cohort's name and enough information to be found yet opt to not directly provide ones name so it seems plausible that the acts were truly charitable. Flawless victory.
  • Heartwarming reaction

    Theft yes, some drugs maybe, don't think you get community service for assault and battery or indecent exposure.
  • Were there flashing of tits involved?
  • If it isn't Obamabucks and the government giving out others' money, its not real charity to Total Fark.

    Maybe in your area, but not where I live. As someone on a tight budget I frequent thrift stores, so I know many of the employees well.
  • How dare this 1%-er Freeper tell those people 'Merry Christmas' and 'God bless you'? He should be ashamed of himself!
  • I'm sorry, it doesn't warm my heart to think of this woman breaking down over some pricks pocket change. It makes me think of everything wrong with both Christmas as we know it, and the world at large. It makes me think of a lifelong struggle to feed your children mercifully ended by death. But your mileage may vary. Merry fa king Christmas.

    He did say he was inspired by a similar story, so maybe he's trying to make it a trend. I doubt people are going to send business his way because of this gesture, but if they do what of it? It's his money, it makes him feel good. i have no problem with this. It's not a Christmas miracle, it's a nice gesture for someone with the means

    He could have given his name or made it a photo opt if he wanted attention. Hopefully, a few more of us will be charitable next year. You don't have to be rich to do so.

    So..Obama and his magical time machine traveled back to the United States circa 1935 and laid the foundation for the modern American welfare system?

    24x7x364 of being a complete dickhead isn't enough? I guess taking Christmas off was completely out of the question....
  • I rarely stumble into the comments on the public page, and this is why.

    Some people got some cash they could use, and you bastages have found a way to make it a bad thing.  You suck.

    Well put, but then you have to realize that only the dregs of Humanity would be farking on Christmas Day.

    Oh, wait...
  • Well, I guess it's good that some people who haven't done jack squat for the needy have found a way to still feel superior to someone who has made Christmas a lot better for a lot of people.
