It is a sad day when you guys inveigle me into posting off topic on MY OWN thread!
But you have been successful and I just GOTTA tell this story. This is a true story as God is my judge:
It had to be twenty years ago. My niece and her family were living in Southern California (they still do) and I was living (and still do) thousands of miles from there, in a FAR, FAR less wealthy setting.
I actually received, in the US Mail, a solicitation from my niece’s daughter’s school district to send them money!!! They were short money and were hitting up relatives of their students for contributions!!!
I was so surprised. If I had extra money to donate it would be to the school system local to where I live, not to some rich, free spending, spoiled, Californians with bloated budgets who are unable regardless to live within their means. The audacity of those people pinned the needle and was WAY off the charts. It still is. WABOA
And, no, I did not send them any money. It’ll be a frigid day in hell before I send money to CA . . . or to any other parts of Mexico for that matter.
