Today's social dilemma came about because of something that happened over the weekend when a friend did some shopping. And this happens to all of us. I got a text from her in the middle of Saturday afternoon and she was a little upset so I called her. Basically she was upset because she went to discount store because she doesn't have a lot of money and that's where she does a lot of her shopping. Anyway, when she went to check out, the cashier asked her if she wanted to donate money to a specific charity. When she said no, the cashier said, "it's only a dollar, can you spare a dollar?" And my friend said no, and the cashier kind of huffed. My friend felt very embarrassed. As I said, she doesn't have a lot of money, so that's why she shops at a discount store. She also does give to charity, but when she can and the charity of her choice. She felt put on the spot and then was made to feel guilty. I understood why she was upset. I don't mind someone asking me if I want to give, but if I say no, that should be the end of it. So I ask you, do you mind when the cashier asks you to donate money to a specific charity or are you okay with it? Do you feel guilty saying no? Let me know what you think on the TRY Facebook page.
