I stopped off at Goodwill this morning to check out what they had when I noticed that a lady and her kid—a small girl—came in and asked if she could have a pair of shoes and a jacket for her kid. The manager told her that they couldn’t afford to give her anything, citing company policy. It was snowing outside, and the woman was in tears. She looked like she could have also used some new shoes herself.
I felt so sorry for her.
The worst part about it is one of the employees started snickering and laughing about her situation, wondering aloud how anyone would be so stupid as to think that they could get free stuff from there.
Because the manager wasn’t around for us to complain to, I and several other people just walked straight out of there, and we took them to the nearby Salvation Army, where they not only gave her and her kid shoes and a coat but also some vouchers for free meals.
I can’t believe anyone at Goodwill would do this. I won’t be supporting them from now on.
