After cleaning out my closet, I dropped off a few bags of clothes at Goodwill over the weekend. Today I was wondering if I could donate a few other things I no longer want or need, so I headed over to the web site for Goodwill Industries of Silicon Valley and found their donation agreement page, which lists the items they do an do not accept.
I'm reading along the "do not accept" list and it all seems pretty normal and expected: paint, gas, guns, freezers, doors, windows, etc. But then I get to the bottom of the list and see "Computer main frames" which makes me laugh out loud.
I suspect this particular rule is specific to Silicon Valley, but haven't verified that. You just know that a rule like this only appears after someone tries to donate a mainframe.
Where else would that happen?!
And, on the off chance that you know who tried it, I'd love to know the story.
