No. They are just doing their job, probably making minimum. I get annoyed at corporate policy instead.

Oh, I'm well aware. I'm not really annoyed at the cashier. Just the company. A week ago I was being asked to make a donation to some charity I never heard of, and the store is literally party of a multi-billion dollar empire. The entire corporation is worth over $28 billion.

Nope. who the fuck are they to try and ask me for a donation? they are a store and not a charity. I don't even give homeless people money, I'd tell them where the nearest salvation army is and direct them to any business that I knew was hiring before I could give them something I don't have enough of as is

Your best bet with homeless people is to just buy them food directly, rather than give them money. They're more likely to spend it on drugs or booze. It's cool you point them in the right direction rather than just ignore them.

I actually don't mind giving money to homeless people because I know they are getting it all for themselves. It's 100% efficient, if you can call it efficient.

Just ask the cashier "will I get a tax receipt for that"? They will of course say no because the store collects all the money and then donates it to decrease their taxes. When she says "no" just say you only donate when you are given credit for it.

That's one thing that annoys me. The business collects the money but gets the tax benefits, unless I'm wrong about how this works.

I always say, "Can you tell me exactly how much of my donation goes to administration and advertising as opposed to how much actually goes towards the stated cause?" They always say, "No." To which I respond,"Do you see the problem I'm having with that?"

Very much so. "Do you want to donate a dollar to feed blah blah blah oprhan kittens guilt guilt guilt?" "no thanks, I need most of them to feed me."

No. I've never once had a cashier be pushy about it.

Your question reminds me of the South Park scene with Randy at whole foods, that's funny stuff.

There certainly is a small element of shaming to it. It's not like they ask you in private.

I guess I'm numb to it. I respond "not today" and don't give it another thought.

I guess slightly, but I just say "nah" and proceed with the task at hand.

No, the cashier is doing their job.

I get pissed at the management/big wigs at the company for not donating it themselves.

Faggots.
