Ok, so I'm not known for my social graces. I would not be welcome at a southern ladies' afternoon tea. I worked in male-dominated fields in both the Air Force, and then for 16 years in telephony. I find it MUCH easier to work with men, than to work with women. I like to discuss options, and make a decision. I hate how women form a committee, discuss something for 5 months, then come to an equitable decision so that no one's feelings get hurt. Give me a break.
So, here are my thoughts on charity. I give my money and/or time to those who I want to receive said money and/or time. If someone is griping because they aren't receiving as much charity as someone else, they need to grow up and deal with it. Life isn't fair. They should be freaking thankful for what they are receiving and shut the hell up. It's a damn shame that one or two people end up spoiling it for everyone else.
And, more than likely, said person(s) who need to read this probably don't read my blog. And that's a shame.
