Salvation Army bellringers

I do respect the work the Salvation Army does, but the bells they ring at stores give me migraines. I have been very tempted to give them $20 for 5 minutes use of the bell and then smash it flat with the framing hammer that I carry in my car and then give it back. Is it possible to be arrested for this. Just made me wonder. Thank you for any input.

Don't have too much fun and don't eat too much on Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

yes it is but you may find a sympathetic judge that has wanted to do the same thing.

God bless the bellringers......they are what Christmas is all about.....helping the less fortunate be less fortunate........but I know what you mean.

What I hate is the over commercializing of Christmas.

Yeah I know merchants rely on Christmas for their survival but they have molested the real meaning of the Season.

I agree that Christmas has become way too commercialized.

I don't much care for money begging either but I do know several folks that volunteer for the salvation army. They take their spare time to stand in the wind, rain and/or cold to help the local salvation army. They deserve our respect!

Don't blame the merchants. If people weren't so willing to part with their money there would be no commercializing.

j howard, i was shopping for groceries. Christmas sopping tried to start but not available yet. Taking my roommate to see the Red Sox play a couple games in Baltimore. We have seen Camden Yards on NESN during Red Sox games and want to see the park in person. Unfortunately tickets for next year are not on sale yet.

I remember when the "Christmas Shopping season didn't start until Black Friday now merchants start in October and it's not just Christmas, "back to school" starts the 2nd week of July.
Every "holiday" has been extended to take advantage of every penny. I guess that's Capitalism and I'm all for Capitalism but c'mon.
