Can you say ridiculous!!!?!?!?!?
I am trying to re-do my guest room into my yarn/quilt/craft room. I thought I would be nice and donate my furniture to a charity that could us it to help others. Two weeks ago I scheduled a Saturday pickup with Faith Farm Ministries in Boynton Beach, FL. I called the Friday before as instructed for my pickup window. I was told they would be there between 2pm-3:30pm so I hurried this morning and ran my errands and did everything I needed to do so I could get back to the house in time. I didn't want to miss them and know they have lots of stops - I was #13 and live basically just down the road from them. I was looking forward to the furniture getting out of the room so I could begin removing my wallpaper today. I was so excited. Well, 3:15pm rolls around and no sign of them so I call and am told they are running a little late and my pickup will be by 5pm. Ok, I get it. Still waiting. I call at 4:45pm to check and am told they will be there in 45 minutes. Well, it's 6:30pm now, no sign of them, they stopped answering their phones before 6pm. I have wasted my entire afternoon sitting around my house for them to show up. Trying not to get involved in anything because I would have been interrupted when they arrived. But no, I get to sit and wait. Apparently Faith Farm Ministries doesn't giving a flying f@#K about the people who are trying to donate to their "charity". "Charity" my a$$. They have wasted my time and show how much they really care about having donations made to their "charity". Now I get to waste even more of my time arranging to have the furniture picked up with another charity and putting off even longer for me to start my room.
