Recovered at least $500 worth of easter candy, easter bunnies and tons and tons of easter eggs, shrek lollipops and other shrek candies. The janitor next door took out 10 boxes of candy out of the dumpster for me, gave me 8 boxes to give out and he took 2 boxes to take home to his neighborhood.
I get the same reaction all the time. Some people are shocked, some think I have an agenda and some are thrilled to get something for free. This candy is high end, Russell Stover and other high end brands. The gal at the grocery store thought I was going to rob her (she eventually realized what I was doing, giving out free candy) and one guy told me his gut was too big so he said no.
One little girl was a cute as a bug’s ear. Her mom is in jail and her dad is taking care of her. Ugh, sad sad situation. Beautiful little blue eyed blond kid. She took quite bit of stuff and took some books (a dictionary and a thesaurus). When I asked if the girl looked like his wife, he gave me a dead pan stare and said I’m not married and winked. (alas he’s cute, but way too young for me). I had also recovered an entire bag of brand new hangers. The dad could use the hangers so I gave them to him.
It was a good night.
