MY boyfriend, my bestfriend, some cowrokers, and I all went to IHOP tonight after work like we usually do. These people know who we are by now, or should at least. Well today, they had a donation egg out, where if you donate a dollar to the big brothers/big sisters than you recieve an egg with a proze.

My egg had a 20% card in it, and we wanted to use it. My boyfriend gave it to the waitress and she very rudely says you have to donate a dollar. He replyed we did.

It was no big deal after that until we went to leave. Apparently the manager on duty did not believe we donated a dollar, and as I walked by I overheard her speaking to my waitress about how we did not donate a dollar.

Unfortunatly for her, I am not a liar or a thief for that matter, though they coincide. So, I took another dollar and told the woman to watch me put this one in and told her it was only because I liked the big brothers/big sisters, even though I had already put a dollar in. Then I told her to keep her prize egg and left.

I felt that was completely rude and discriminitory towards me because I am a nineteen year old. But I always donate a dollar to all organizations of good cause, and I always will, except if IHOP is doing the fund raising.

How do you know?

AUTHOR: SP - (United States of America)

Well you say that somebody was discriminating agaisnt you because you are a teenager or only 19, how do you know? From what I have read they were only talking about how they thought you did not donate a dollar.

Its seems that they did not directly call anyone a theif, but were concerned over the issue of a donation.

Chariety at restuarants

AUTHOR: Paul - (U.S.A.)

I never contirbute anything at a restuarant.

But then I give over $5000 a year to various chareitys.

Fact is, nearly half of all socalled 'jar' charietys are actually fake.

In my own chain, we allow none, unless its well known, and only approved by myself or 1st level district mgmt.

Even the 'kids' going to camps jars are not allowed (especially since before I took over, we had two jars that were exactly that and fake).
In fact another one said it was bigbrothers but wasnt.
