Red Cross=Red Tape!

I had never had anything but a good opinion of the Red Cross until I actually started volunteering for them. It is ridiculous how unorganized they are on the volunteer side. ~ telling the media we had enough volunteers when I worked for 12 hours straight without eating, making us wait two hours in a line just to volunteer, giving us a 30 minute lecture on what we were supposed to do only to have it immediately overruled and changed completely.
And it is not just me - I have been hearing of all sorts of issues from other people. If we had had a $1 donation for every eye that rolled among the hundreds of volunteers today, we could take all the evacuees out for a steak dinner!
