K-mart Still Sucks
A sneaky maneuver by K-mart -- trying to solicit a charity donation from me before I know how much money I'm about to throw their way. On top of that, they leave the question open-ended. No longer are they simply asking for $1, they're just generally asking if I want to make a donation.
Despite the trickery, I still turned them down. And the cause that made me look like a jackass this time: children's cancer research. "Do you want to donate to support children's cancer research?"
Me: "Nah. It's OK. I'm good."
Last time, it looked like I hated premature babies. Now it looks like I hate kids...particularly kids with cancer.
But that's not all. K-mart added an extra step before you pay. They ask you to answer a survey question on the card reader:
Q: "Did you know your K-mart pharmacy offers year-round immunizations?"
As I hit the "No" option, all I could think of was that I wish there was a smartass comment section where I could write, "I do now, and I love kids!"
F you K-mart.
