Freezers Revisited

I recently wrote a post about freezers. Well, now I'd like to touch on a different aspect of freezers- what's inside mine at the moment.
Besides for the assorted meats, vegetables, cakes, and soups, my freezer right now is holding someone's order of meat from America. And do you know what?
That meat has been in my freezer since NBD was born.
People- let's talk. I wrote a post on this, and I'd like to announce it loud and clear.
If people have the courtesy to ship stuff for you over 6,000 miles (6,195 to be exact)- please, please pick it up.
For further reference- read this post on what is proper courtesy on taking items to and from countries.

Why don't you call them?

Chanie- I've called them now 5 times, at least. They say that they'll come pick it up...soon- but they're too busy right now. Sheesh.

Do you know what I have in my office right now?

Probably about 10 random items from people that asked me to bring them to Jerusalem and they would be "picked up". Some are more than 5 years old, and I don't feel like throwing them out...Ive even forgotten who they were for or who sent them!

Boy did you hit a sore point...

Jameel- So I'm not the only one..phew. Somehow, sometime- maybe they actually will come pick it up. But I wouldn't hold my breath.I guess I needed to vent with this post.
And by the way,you could probably ask a rabbi wahat to do with everything that is really, really old. Or you could stick it in the ever pesent teiku box.

Someone once asked me if I could take her son a raincoat. She showed up with this raincoat that had about a million pockets, each of which was stuffed with CANS of tuna! The thing weighed literally 12 pounds! And she got mad at me when I wouldn't take the tuna.

Justme- Woah. That is a LOT of tuna. She actually expected you to take that??
I'm glad you had the guts to refuse. The airport security would have given you odd looks otherwise, or at least an overweight baggage claim.
