I probably am being unreasonable but I resent it and I feel pressuured because I dont like to look mean.
Its not that I dont give to charity. I have several who I am currently digging into my purse for because of my job (I work in a Church foundation and we have a " charity" each term and everyone gives to it - as well as the school fund raising activities ). I work part time. DH is retired ( redundant early and works pension only) and mine is the main income now.
This is all about the current stand up for cancer campaign that Tesco seemto be involved in. I went into Tesco yesterday . I usually do main shopping on Friday but do bits in the week as Tesco is local. Yesterday at the till I was asked to donate a £1 on my grocery bill for charity.
AIBU in feeling this is pressure I dont need? I dont want to go into Tesco now. How many more times will they ask me for a £1 donation this week? I simply cannot afford it but I dont want to say no. I know I must but I feel I am being forced to look mean in front of others at the checkout.
Why did Tesco devise this policy. Is it a case I have to change supermarkets ( and go to a city 20 miles away for a different one) or is this not fair - or am I totally unreasonable?
