For the next little while, the cashiers are to ask the customers if they want to donate $2.00 for the IWK. Today, I saw as one of the cashiers ask a customer this, and the woman sighed wearily and said "No, I ALREADY donated. Everytime I pay for my things, the cashiers ask me this. We should be given a ticket to show that I donated already". Really, what a b*tch she was! It was like she expected the cashier to know this oh, so generous heart of gold has already donated some money. It's not the cashier's idea to ask for donations, and I'm sure they hate the anticipation of the disgrundled "No, not today". It isn't like giving money hurts the customers more than the many reasons the children are in the IWK to begin with. So for those customers out there that will complain to cashiers that they already donated, don't take out your frustrations on the cashiers, since they don't have psychic abilities (you obviously assume they have it) to know what you've already done for a good cause.

One pissed-off passerby
