Some People Have No Heart

Today Shira and I were downtown. While there I took Shira to our favorite local toy store. Shira wanted a bunch of barn yard animals so we chose a bunch. I had been in this store many times through the years and have always gone there first to support local business. I noticed at the cash register it said 25% off starting next week. I asked the cashier if we could have the discount because its hard for me to get downtown with Shira. She said no. I then told her that Shira has a terminal illness and I didn't understand why they couldn't make an exception considering there was a store wide sale the next week. There was also nobody else in the store. The clerk went into the back office which was open and we could here her ask the stores owner if we could have the discount. You could here the owner say, "no its against company policy." The clerk returned to the counter and informed me that it was against company policy. So, I let her ring up the itemes, run them through on my credit card and then I informed her that I decided I didn't want the items. Now I can understand not getting 25% off if I was just asking for it but in this case there was a sale next week. a sign on the check out counter and i informed them that it was difficult for me to get downtown with my daughter who suffers from a life threatening illness and they just said no! I will never shop there again and I will spread the word. The heartless store is called Kaboodies located at 1320 Government Street, Victoria, B.C. Canada phone: 250-383-0931 www.kaboodies.ca Please spread the word that this is a heartless business person. I ask that everyone boycott this store this Christmas season and hopefully forever!! Please spread the word. I'm pissed!!!!!!!!

We dont have any nice people here either Brad. Mean people just SUCK!! In California and Wisconsin there are so many people that just are so great to Lizzy but not here. We never get a break either here . I had helped with Children's Miracle Network fund and organized a huge fundraiser and made them a lot of money about 10 years ago. Then we asked for help with travel to CA for Lizzy and they said because our local hospital is not part of their network they could not help us. But.... they come here to get donations???? Then Christen asked the our local United Way and the lady actually said they do not help individuals but for us to call or write Oprah. Like we havent done that. Did that 3 years ago and NO RESPONSE either. Many family members did also.
So I understand your frustration with people who just do not CARE.
Hope Shira is doing well!! Sammy too!
