I haven't been writing much, which saddens me. On the bright side, no one reads or cares enough to be deeply affected.

Snapshot Sundays are my favorite. Unfortunately, the slot my memory card slips into is broken. In order to get pictures on here, I have to: upload the pictures to my desktop, upload the files to a file sharing site, download them to my laptop, and then edit/post them. It's a tedious process, and I'm terribly lazy.

In other news, we've started selling Jimmy Fund tickets at work. Basically, you donate $1 and get a scratch ticket. On the left side, you automatically get a coupon for free product worth anywhere from $1-$5 (which means you get your dollar back regardless), and the chance to win $5-$10,000 on the right side. But that's completely irrelevant.

Here's what I'd really like to discuss. When I ask you if you'd like to donate a dollar to the Jimmy Fund, please don't laugh and say "HA! I don't have any money! Someone should donate to me!" Times are tough. I'm a cashier. I make $9 an hour, and I absolutely understand what it's like to have virtually no money. If you can't spare $1 (which you probably could, judging by the 5 ounce, $39 bottle of conditioner you've just purchased...or the $370 bill you're paying for in cash), that's fine. Say "no" or "no, thank you." Do not suggest that someone should donate to you, you ignorant sack of shit. I'm sorry that you can't afford to take that cruise to the Bahamas this year, but just stop for a minute and think. Consider what it's like to battle cancer or lose a child to disease. If you can't give a dollar, at least show some fucking tact.

Maybe Lil' General customers are more generous than Stop & Shop customers, but...

We had two donation buckets a while back, one for the children of a woman who had been killed and the other for autistic children.

Both of them were pretty much always full of money, even after we kept emptying them out.

And keep in mind, most of the people who come in and live around don't usually have much to spare.

You know, I've noticed that people who don't really seem to have much money are almost always more generous.

It's interesting.
