Mystery services 7/30/2015

We were greeted by stale hot dog and hamburger buns. We saw musk melons coming in but none were cut for us folks. They had channel 8 filming but we weren't told that they were going to film us. We had to ask who they represented to get answer. The person running the place is a classic incompetent. It's a non-profit, and they get donations for operation but the seniors are charged a dollar to watch a movie you can pick up at the library for free. When asked if we could store our food in the fridge. We were told they usually don't do that, but there was nothing to eat on the table except a few crumbs of a coffee cake left. They had tai-chi, but most of the participants looked like the walking dead. I went into the computer room and this woman who runs things, is telling this younger women volunteer candidate that they don't have any need for a yoga instructor. That they already have a "contract' with one already. She did say that they really need young people to move tables around and lift heavy things... I guess I missed her pep talk in empowerment 101. I said to her, look,, this girl has skills. Why don't you use her talents as an alternate yoga instructor. I had already seen enough from her when she wiggled her finger at my partner when she asked to put her bag of perishible food in a cool place. My friend isn't a dog to be summoned. Everything about that place smelled foul. Maybe the big whig there was harried, but, it looked to me like another scam operation running under the guise of a non-profit. That's right ,milk seniors on limited incomes,withhold donations of fruit, and make people feel shame for asking for simple services. We spent maybe 2 hours there to cool off in the 100 degree heat..Mostly in the gift shop with a very knowledgable, outgoing woman who actually spent some quality time with us finding out who we were and conversing. more
