At my restaurant where I am a server, we have a month where we try to raise money for St. Jude’s Children Hospital. Diners can raise anything from $1 on, and we are encouraged to ask every table. Most tables respond well and donate at least a dollar.
One woman, though, told me that, “My granddaughter has muscular dystrophy, so all my money will be going to that cause.” She then asked to remove the table tent that had the information about St. Jude off her table because she considered it offensive. You would think having a sick child would help her understand. I was appalled by her behavior.
