Only In Palm Desert

My wife is the manager of a ladies clothes store in Palm Desert CA. Palm Desert is an upper income community in the Palm Springs area. All of the real money in the Palm Springs area comes from Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and La Quinta. Palm Springs is middle of the road now.

Every year Sherri's store collects toys for the underprivileged kids in the area. Even though there is a lot of money in the Coachella Valley, there are many low income areas that have a need for this stuff.

Anyways, she has a big box in her store that customers can leave a small toy for a needy child. The ladies are always very generous, but some ladies don't seem to know who they are giving gifts to. Here is a list of some of the things found in the box.

A Neiman-Marcus gift bag.
Jewelry. A nice necklace, bracelet, and toe ring set.
Adjustable bra straps.
Gift bag from Bed Bath and Beyond.
Make up from Ulta.

Any toy from the .99 store probably would have made the day of any of these kids. What the heck are these ladies thinking?

how thoughtful to give a gift bag! Really, they shouldn't have!

What boneheads.

Hope you are feeling better!

I should clarify on the gift bags, they were full of stuff from the stores that they came from, just not stuff kids would ever use.
