Stop making People Regret Helping out!

I was the one who offered the free birthday party set. Free dinosaur decorations, free cupcake mix/icing, free snacks. For a family who was struggling. And a woman replied and I messaged her. She asked me to hold onto it because her son had a soccer tournament on my end of town and she could pick it up then. Ok, sure. I don’t like to feel rushed to pick things up so what’s a week. So I held it for her. Messaged her Sunday morning asking if she still wanted it. No response. Fast forward to Tuesday night, I message her again, no response. So I creep her Facebook thinking “maybe something happened and she’s posted it” cause I don’t want to jump to conclusions. But I can’t see statuses but I CAN see she’s been on updating her photos so I know she’s seen a message notification from me and is not opening it or answering.

I have often given things away for free because everyone needs help from time to time. But I take issue when you reply REQUESTING said free items and then proceed to jerk me around. I am offering a free birthday party set worth over $100 and all I’m asking is you come by to pick it up. That’s all. We don’t have to be friends, you owe me nothing. I just want your kid to have a fun party that maybe you couldn’t afford otherwise. I will not shame you, or make you feel bad, hell, I can even leave it on the front step for you to pick up so we don’t even have to see each other. That’s it, that’s all, no strings attached. So PLEASE if your family could use a free dinosaur birthday set and not can but WILL pick up (Beaumaris area) this weekend please comment and I’ll message you.

    Don’t let people like that ruin it for you. What you are doing is such a great thing. That stuff has happened to me too. There was a single mother that said she was looking to buy a winter coat for up to $40.00. I had a beautiful coat that I hardly used and was worth well over $150.00 that I was going to give her for free, all she had to do was pick it up. Needless to say, it has been a few months and the coat is still at my work waiting for her to pick it up.

  9. I have a friend who is having a double birthday party for her 2 boys that could probably use that stuff as she is a single mother and doing it on her own. Message me. I live in Griesbach and could even pick up tonight.

  10. Not all messages get delivered on Facebook messenger, there is an “other” folder that you have to click into (at least on the iPhone…) and you do not get notified that you have a message unopened either. Best thing is to tag that person. I had messages that I never knew existed until I learned about another folder…

    • I was the one who posted. And she had responded to my initial message so none of the other messages would have gone to the other folder.

    • Oh, then I guess she didn’t want it hey? And yes she should have told you immediately that she couldn’t pick it up or had just simply changed her mind or whatever, so you could have re-gifted it to another person. Common sense and courtesy is lacking nowadays.

    • Definitely frustrating as all she needed to do was send me a message saying “no thanks” but, I’ve messaged someone else that said they can use it so hopefully it gets to the right person!

    • You’ll get some good karma… have a great weekend!
