A friend of mine agreed to do Canadian cancer society relay for life with me a few weeks ago. Days before the event she backs out.
“Hey hunny, I won’t be able to go to the relay for life thing with you next week because I just got a new job and I need to adjust my sleeping hours. If you’re still doing it, I’d donate to support you!!”
“Congrats!! I’m actually not going either because I’m sick, but did you still want to donate to my friend? She organized it and is still doing it.”
“Oh, if you’re not doing it, then probably not.”
“It’s for the cancer society.”
“Yeah, but I don’t have a job.”
This girl has made so much money prior to getting this new job and can’t even donate a measly $10. If you can buy a Miu Miu bag for $2000, what’s $10? It’s like half a mascara or a lip gloss. I know we can’t force people to donate and support a good cause. I just can’t believe how selfish people are, especially people who have so much money! I make a fraction of what she makes, and I still donated. It’s for a good cause and $10 would make a difference.
Why the hell are people so damn cheap? What do you think about this situation?
