    What are your plans for "giving back" (not monetarily, but through volunteering your time) to the community during this impending holiday season?...

    Only through giving can we truly 'receive' . . . .

    Serious responses only, please. :hat:

    Ask my ex, she has the money. As for me, zero point zero.

    Most recent one was on Monday. People and their smelly as fuck 5 cats had no heat. Turned out to be an easy fix, loose wire on a relay. That one may have been a little selfish though because I didn't want to hang around inhaling the pungent aroma of cat piss while I wrote up the bill.

    On a cop salary, you're giving every time you put on the uni.

    People are extra needy around the holidays.. So we all should increase our volunteerism

    That's no way to go through life.. You will be "in need" at some point in your life, and you're gonna be praying that someone will jump in to give you a hand

    It's not a volunteer in the true unpaid sense, but I did work as a Salvation Army Bell Ringer when I was in college. Once someone put a still-wrapped condom in my kettle.

    OMG yes, I think of it every time I go into someone's house and they start apologizing for how cluttered or messy it is. I just look at them with a serious face :)nojj:) and say, "seriously? you have no idea what I've seen over the years, and this doesn't even register a blip on the messy radar."
