I decided to have a good clear out of the linen closet and had a pile of sheets, towels and a couple of old blankets to donate.
I went to a charity shop in town and asked them if they wanted them. She said yes as long as they weren't stained etc. Looked at the pile they had and decided mine were a heck of a lot better, so went to unload them from the car. Took the pile of sheets in first.
Went back to the car and picked up the pile of towels. There was a lady walking up to the door, so I asked her if she could hold the door open for me. She did just that and saw what was in my hands. She said they would be perfect for the local humane society. The conversation then went like this:
Charity Shop Lady, "No she said they were for us."
Humane Society Lady, "Yes but I know her."
(Me, thinking I have no clue who you are.)
Charity Shop Lady," But she said they were for us."
Humane Society Lady, "But as she knows me, I'll have them."
I am stood there in between the pair of them with my head going back and forward not knowing what to do. So I say to the Charity Shop Worker, that the towels aren't the best and maybe they would be better for the Humane Society and she says fine.
I then go outside to get the two blankets and again we go through the same thing and again the Humane Society wins. If they had been in a lot better condition I would have let the Charity Shop have them all.
At the end of the day I am just happy that they all went to good homes. Also my linen closet is not full to the top with old linens I have no use for.
Do you donate to charity shops?
