Going into huge corporate-owned enterprises and being guilted at the register/bombarded! A lot of successful companies in the US use overseas labor and pay their workers as little as necessary to bring in bigger profit margins...so why do I have to be guilted into giving money to a charity on top of patronizing the business? I am running deep in the red for the next 2 weeks until I get my next monthly salaried paycheck and I literally have no shoes to wear thanks to an overzealous chewing puppy...I was paying for 2 pairs of Old Navy flip flops at $2.50 a pair and after hitting me up for a credit account, the girl at the counter was trying to get me to donate one of my pairs to charity (?!). Those $2.50 flip flops probably cost 50 cents max to make...why do they have to take the shoes off my feet rather than corporate shelling out a donation from their own pockets? Walmart and Sears do this too...I had a student who actually quit her job because they were writing her up for refusing to hustle people into a 25% interest credit card when they were making purchases. I also have issues with asking me for my home telephone number or email...they're so casual about it. I just answer "No, it's out of state." Really, I feel stalked for the sake of their marketing. What happened to thanking your customers and making them feel welcome with incentives for purchases?
