What NOT to do when you're a cashier at a clothing store:
Cashier: Your total is $19.90. Would you like to make a donation to St. Jude's Hospital?
Customer: No, that's okay.
Cashier: You don't want to donate even a dollar?
Cashier: What about rounding your total up to $20.00? That's only a 10 cent donation.
Customer: I said no.
Yes, this happened; a cashier pushing a customer to donate. I'm glad we don't do this shit at my store. And that cashier is also lucky that she wasn't ringing ME up that day. My sister was the customer and is always too nice to say anything when stuff like this happens. So when she tells me I'm usually the one that gets fired up and complains.
This cashier was also a complete bitch to my sister regarding some promotion that was going on.
Listen, I get it. Customers are assholes around this time of year. But forget all that, why try and make someone feel bad because they don't want to donate their money? My sister walked out of that store feeling like a bad person because she didn't donate anything, but she didn't WANT to donate because of the attitude of this cashier.
So yes, I will be calling the manager or going to see the manager in the store and complaining about this lady. It doesn't matter that it was my sister. If I had been in line and heard her doing this to someone else, I would have said something too.
Please, all cashiers out there, don't do this. No one has to donate any of their hard earned money. And for all you know, they may donate their money somewhere else. Or they may be having a rough time right now and can't afford to give. Not even 10 cents.
Has anyone ever had this happen to them before?
