Hmmm... I actually recieved a package that looked like there was blood all over it. Not the box itself, but the one for the actual item. They told me to dispose of it and refunded my account. Since there was a possibility that it was blood, it couldn't be mailed back. If it were, it'd be a hazard.

I think this is kinda messed up :/. You don't know who it belongs to. What if it belongs to a family who lost their house or something?

Yes!!! That would be the right thing to do. Whoever thought it was a good idea to dump such critical information in that dumpster should be held accountable. That could literally ruin someone's life. It could cause irreparable damage to those people. Most of us know the struggle to get by on peanuts, or how hard you have to work to stay afloat day after day. It actually makes me sick thinking about it.

It's ridiculous how much it cost for baby formula, baby food, clothes, car seats, etc. I helped my mom raise my younger siblings and she struggled to keep us afloat. She worked 3 fecking jobs and it was still wasn't enough. Fortunately, things didn't stay that way. I don't have children of my own, but I've seen the struggles.

Baby formula is gold. Too bad it's so closely monitored. My sister has a little boy and when he was a baby, he required this formula that was crazy expensive. I can't for the life of me remember why, or what brand it was. Anyway, it was close to $100 or possibly more.

I can guarantee you that everyone who recieves those are incredibly grateful. That's so kind of you. I would have absolutely LOVED you for that!!!

Sometimes it's the smallest things that will bring happiness to someone. I just remember being homeless and appreciating the little luxuries I took for granted. It sounds cliche, but it's totally true. I like getting a bit of everything to donate. I love helping people.

It may sound silly, but even makeup is nice to get. If you feel you look good, it can make you feel good. Having that confidence goes a loooong way. Looking put together and having decent clothes can give you that boost. It can make going to interviews a bit easier. Makeup or nice clothes aren't necessities, but they can help lift your mood.

I haven't heard of this. Not yet, atleast. I can understand them wanting to implement the 25 or less. They're small, convenient and meant to be quick. It's probably easier for them to monitor the people checking out if they have less. But, I wouldn't see it being an issue at the conveyor belt SCO's.

I'm not sure, though. That's just what I'm thinking lol. Who knows 🤷‍♀️.

Okay, so I don't lifting a few times qualifies as a good amount of experience. I think you should start small and move upwards gradually. I'm not saying this in a mean way. I just think you should work on it, and find a technique that works for you. Sift through posts on here. I've learned a fuckton of things on this site. Knowledge is power, and it doesn't hurt to keep learning! Take care, and good luck.

In my opinion, that's a shit thing to do. You don't know anything about the people you'd be scamming. It could be someone with health issues, parents of a disabled child, a family struggling financially. There's a million different scenarios. Just don't do it.
