Don’t Discount The Power Of Charity

, , | Hopeless | April 15, 2016

(I am a mall employee and a December baby. Every December a certain charity sets up a booth at my mall. After my mother gets married my step-grandmother starts sending me birthday checks, thanks to which I wind up with about $600 of spending cash one year. I go absolutely nuts buying clothes and toys to toss in the charity bin over the course of a week, and towards the end of my spree I stop by one store to pick up jewelry, keychains, and wallets with popular characters/logos on them.)

Cashier: “Stocking stuffers?”

Me: “[Charity]! They’re down by the food court.”

Cashier: “Hey, [Manager]? Can we give her a discount?”

(The manager plugged in a military discount on my sale, plus a member’s birthday coupon, saving me $30 on a $75 sale. After I dropped everything off at the charity booth I ran back to my own store to purchase gift cards for the manager and cashier with the money they saved me.)
