    Generosity That Knows No Bounds (Or Much Of Anything Else)

    | Ontario, Canada | Money

    Me: “Would you like to make a donation to help support children are sent back to school without supplies?”

    Customer: “Oh, fine.”

    Me: “Okay, you can make a donation in any amount that you like, or you can donate a back to school kit, which has 9 essential school supplies in it. The kits are 5 bucks.”

    Customer: “Fine, I’ll donate a kit.”

    Me: “Great, thanks for your contribution!”

    Customer: “How long is this going to be going on for? Because this is my third time coming into the store, and I get asked every time to donate! I’m going to run out of money!”

    Me: “It’s going on ’til September, but you know, you’re allowed to say ‘No’ when we ask you.”

    Customer: “No I’m not!”
