Charity woes

Posted on Tue, Sep 4, 2012 at 4:12 PM

I hate asking people for money, I just fucking hate it. But if I decide not to ask every single person that goes through my line for a donation, I get the silent treatment from my manager. Oh and by the way it's TWO DOLLARS, what a stupid amount for charity. I can understand if it was around a dollar, but $2 is too much. What if someone was just buying a bottle of pop, do you really think they want to add $2 to that? At our store for every 10 you sell you get entered into a draw to win a gift card, WTF!? There should be NO incentive to ask people for money, but you know why there is, because managers want to make their store look good. Well you know what, fuck you, I am not asking a single person for charity any more, if it gets me into trouble, so be it. I'm tired of sending people on a guilt trip by mentioning "Oh, it's for children!" And I'm tired of hearing other cashiers gloat about how many they sold, "Oh, you only sold 19? What happened?" Fuck off. If people want to donate on their own time, fine, but I'm done. —Bitchy Cashier
