Thanks for the update!!  I hope they think long and hard and realize why it was a failure… and learn from it for the future.  But something tells me they’ll keep wondering why no one else was interested.

How much stuff do they have that 3 family members and themselves couldn’t get it done? Sheesh.

WTF?!  If im going to help someone pack, I would expect them to feed ME!!!  Not bring a potluck dish too.  No thanks…

Water actually came out my nose when I read “I thought there would be more interest.”  I would love a hit of whatever she is taking.  Being that oblivious must be very freeing.

skier11 :  Going out of curiousity with an exit strategy in place and reporting back to us hoping-for-an-update Bees…..I bow to your genius cool

I’m puzzled by their complete lack of organization. I’ve moved multiple times in my life and DVDs, books etc are the kind of thing they could pack well in advance, a few boxes here and there kind of thing, while purging anything for donating/recycling/ garbage (another reason I’d want to get this stuff out of the way myself- how on earth would a co-worker know what she wanted to keep or purge?) I could understand if this was an emergency move- in an emergency I’d help out anyone without snark- but this sounds like a consciously planned move. 

annabananabee :  LOL love this! Quite the bubble she’s living in there.

skier11 :  I snorted so loud at the “thought there’d be more interest” part my puppy stopped chewing his bone to see if I was okay.

That is hilarious. 

It is amazing to me how stunningly dense some people can be. I mean, HOW COULD ANYONE RESIST the opportunity to bring food, moving supplies, and sweat equity in the face of such an appealing offer?? 

Mind boggling. I’m boggled.

Glad to hear the universe still makes sense and nobody showed.

This is classic.  Something tells me these people will never learn, but I thank them and you for a most excellent chuckle.

She thought there would be more interest in working for free and providing food for yourself and others? Entitled, cheap, and completely out of touch with reality. Has this dimwit never heard of pizza delivery?

Glad you updated. What a moron.

Gee, I’m surprised she didn’t post the event on Craigslist and wait for the hordes.

Clueless. Honest to goodness some people…. I wonder if she would have accepted an invite to give up a day to help someone else move and on top of that was expected to supply food?

“I snorted so loud at the “thought there’d be more interest” part my puppy stopped chewing his bone to see if I was okay” .

That made me snort so that if my little old dog hadn’t been so deaf she might have done the same.  

OP, thank you for going above and beyond the call of Bee duty !
