Never look a gift horse in the mouth
Last night my daughter Caitlin was dumpster diving and found a very large number of eggs. Some were broken but there were many, many good eggs she managed to salvage and while I think I am good at making the most of what is available, I think people here will get sick of eating eggs before I get sick of cooking them. We also had a handful of premium face creams which were retrieved from a dumpster some time ago, Caitlin's boyfriend had sent them here for me to offer on a Pay it Forward group so tonight I offered 5 x dozen eggs and 5 x men's face creams for local piffers to pick up. I didn't include photos of my offerings because i don't have a smart phone and couldn't be bothered with any other method of getting pictures. I wasn't offering dresses here, folks, just eggs and face creams. For free.
Soon, I had the group administrator pointing out that I wasn't following the guidelines. I explained my "misdemeanor" and she informed me that next time I should get my busy kids to take photos in advance of the time I wanted to post my items. In the middle of this revolting conversation a group member also called me out on the lack of photos. Did I mention I was offering free things?
I replied that no, I did not have photos and no, I could not provide them. Then I said that the first person to pick up, someone who had not asked for a photo, could have the remaining face creams. After that i turned off comments.
