mdlevine- thank you for your kind offer = B”H we have since received financial assistance and are really very much ok with the diapers, I just wanted you to be aware of the desperation that mothers could have with larger families etc. etc. NO we do not think that it is coming to us or the sense of entitlement, however, we just try to utilize the services we see are there and made available to us, and in my case I just found that most of the services were simply unavailable or uninterested. May Hashem help you to continue with your good work and thank you very much for your response!
Will Hill, … lets clarify this I WORKED ALL SUMMER at the bungalow colony therefore did NOT have to pay for the bungalow!!!! … I came on this post for constructive critisicm for people to help me understand why I was unable to be helped so many times over and over; I have a few children and yes life is difficult and expensive, and we live frugally which is why I turned forhelp in many different places.
NOTE FROM MODERATOR –
PLEASE NOTE – DUE TO THE POSITIVE POINT OF YOUR POST, I TOOK THE TIME TO EDIT IT FROM ALL THE REMAINING JUNK THAT ISN’T TOLERATED ON THIS WEBSITE. THIS WON’T HAPPEN AGAIN. NEXT TIME, IT JUST GETS DELETED!
I hate to put a spoiler on this – but as a mother of multiples I contacted the G’mach in brooklyn (flatbush) and Monroe several times over many months desperate for diapers as we did not have the funds to purchase boxes of it it and each time we were pushed off with (just this week we dont have diapers SORRY) and to say the least the monroe people just asked for my name – and said sorry NO we only have for preemie.
So please help me to be don l’chaf zechus as I am mad angry when I read this post.
chaimberliner – your response reeks fo Bitul Torah – where did you find ALL THAT TIME to write it
Mrs L, please hold on whilst I seek out the trophy to award you for your Oh So self righteousness. Lets help you to clarify a factor… My neighbour who lost her help (of 4 years) has two sets of multiples in infancy as well as financial difficulties that compel her to work many hours to assist her husband in parnassah, oh and lets not forget your health. I mean you must have more time on your hands than you admit too with your murphy and damp clothes, but did you stop to wonder about others, perhaps she needs it more for various reasons such as health matters that are totally NONE of your business though I am sure you are dying to know so that you can throw another self righteous comment on the board. Would you like to try out her life for a while though I wouldnt wish it on Amalek – just be careful who you make fun of OK!
Jphone you must be pretty bored to take things so literally do you attack the boss who says “my secretary” or “my salesman” or “my mailman” GOT IT????ve
The POINT I am trying to make here – for everyone else to understand – is not that cleaning lady who has long since been replaced….. and does NOT cause me sleepless nights or ever has (though I am sure many people have had sleepless nights over it), it is simply by “our people” pushing up the prices to beyond affordability and also causing tzar for those that suddenly lose their help (whether they are punkt in kimputerim, getting ready for yom tov, have a house full of children and an impending simchas – and the list goes on)…
Our community is astounding – GO ON push up the prices and keep fighting because at the end only YOU will end up being the loser…
