    Default Charity

    Warning, this is a rant. Was going to post this in Open Water but decided to put it here because of the observation at the end. Anyway....



    I have always refused to donate money to things I don't consider a need. It's kind of a pet peeve when people call my company and ask for donations so their kids can go play baseball. That's not a need. My money will be going to the children's hospital for the kids who don't even have the chance to play baseball. If your team needs money, go out and sell something. Have a bake sale. Work for the money. I will even donate stuff for them to sell and raise money but don't come to me with just your hand out for a free trip. Go ask your parents. I send thousands to children's medical charities.



    Well now I have a nephew who's made the all star baseball team . So, of course, I'm going to help them out with stuff for the tournaments. Just to be clear, I haven't lowered my donations to the other charities for this. We've been providing the water and gatorade for all the games. The boys made it into the state tournament last weekend. So I donated the money to put up all 12 families for the state tournament this coming weekend. 12 rooms for 3 nights. It's turning out to be a mistake and I should have seen this coming.

    One of the dads called and actually f&*king complained because I chose the Econo Lodge. He actually gave me other suggestions for hotels (that cost twice as much) and even called the f&*king hotels for me to see if they had room. Seriously dude.....WTF?? Would you like me to put you up at the f&*king Ritz???? It's a free f&*king room!!! Is it just me or is this the tackiest f&*king thing you've ever heard of??? If you don't like it, then simply make your own f&*king reservations wherever you damn well please. I want to just cancel the f&*king rooms now. I'll send the $3,000+ to a better charity that will most definitely not f&*king complain about how much it is. I would rather send it to someone that will thank me for money that could be saving their life. Even if it's 10 f&*king dollars. F&*k this dude! I have learned my lesson.

    Yes, I'm pissed again now that I've typed all this....But the funny part is.....and I could not make this shit up even if I tried.....












    This same jackass has one of the very very few vehicles in the state of Louisiana that has an Obama sticker on it.

    What an asshole!!!!!
    He must be a liberal and has an idea that you are "well off".
    Ill bet you 100 bucks that his words were something like " That uncle is that rich and all he will pay for is the economy lodge ? What a greedy bastard !!"

    I only give money to the Ronald McDonald houses and salvation army.
    But we also give all kinds of "stuff" for charity auctions and whatever.

    One day at any one of the Ronald McDonald house hospitals will change your life forever.

    I had no idea ram has a kid that plays baseball AND made the Allstar team. Who knew.

    Sorry to hear this Boss, but it is typical of the ENTITLED class we have today.
    I don't just want a free apartment, it has to have cable TVwith a wide screen Hi Def, free internet access, ground floor only(I am too fat from eat'n fried chicken for breakfast),

    Should have told him to write his President.


    Hate to see you pull the plug on everybody because of one asshole. There may be some(many) that your offer is a huge deal and may even be the only reason they can attend.
    I know its a problem trying to reserve a block of rooms like that. Maybe if you could work it out so you only pay for the rooms that get used.

    If the asshole so much as asks if he can have a CREDIT for another hotel, CALL ME. I love to travel there and EXPLAIN IT TO HIM!

    If there is a GOD, it would turn out to be ram.

    That is just plain bad manners and inconsiderate. The unfortunate thing is that it appears to be norm and it is not exclusive to polical party or religeon.

    His "Obama" bumper sticker explains everything....I would bet green money he wanted a hotel that had room service [at your expense, of course] in-room bar and porn channels on cable. He is a classless moron and no doubt is a government employee. Bet he screams and yells at his kid when he fucks up.

    I would have called all the parents and told them that you're cancelling all the rooms because of this one guy. Don't cancel the rooms, just see what happens when the rest of the parents find out that they might have to pony up because of him.
    Bet it would be like a feeding frenzy at the zoo when they found out!!!

    Sorry for the donation disaster but the fact remains that you earned the blessings the same despite the liberal hemorrhoid ruining the kindness with his entitlement attitude.

    My guess is you did this for the boys not the parents. Don't let this one parent change your heart or make you resent what you did. I guarantee that there is at least one boy and probably more that your generosity is probably making it possible to have this great experience. I have coached many sports for over 18 years and the parents get worse and worse, but amazingly the kids continue to be awesome. Continue to support the kids whenever you can and feel good about doing it. These kids need people like you!!!!

    I did not cancel the rooms. I would never do that. Was just saying that I will definitely rethink how I would do things next time. Hope they make the series. Will let y'all know.

    Its always heartening to see unselfish people do something so kind and generous. The ungrateful receiver of your generosity is an idiot. I think they call them useful idiots on the left.

    The same idiots that think like this
