  • Yup, I'm obviously a sucker. Never again unless I have a personal relationship

  • I sent a lady some baby clothes from one of my groups, some new some not, she never bothered to say thanks, it rubbed me the wrong way, her baby daddy "supposedly" walked out on her,
    I asked her if she go them, and she replied, YES, nothing more.

  • Nope & probably wouldn't unless I hit the lottery. Not that I wouldn't want to help some of those who I consider "friends", but we are scraping by ourselves. :/

  • I did a few years back and then it turned into a drama group. Very few helpers lots of takers. Very few even bothered to say thanks but the ones that did were great with their thanks and you could tell they appreciated it. Now I don't have the funds to help,

  • No, not here or anywhere else online. No one's ever asked, but I'd be pretty skeptical if someone did ask me.

  • I don't help people I really know! Why would I be daft enough to do it for strangers in the internet?!
    I don't ask for help, I don't give help, much!

  • Only a couple of times. I got rid of my Veggietales video collection to a really nice person. My dd unloaded some Pokémon cards for somebody's son. It was his birthday and he recently got into Pokémon. We never got a thank you on that one. Probably because she didn't realize how anal I was about confirmation the package sent was received. The post office lost it temporarily and it almost got returned to us. He did get it though. Oh and one time for Christmas I sent a flannel sheet set to a friend in New York. It doesn't happen often.
