I EARN my money - EARN yours!

Please tell me I am not the only person getting pissed off with the "fleecing of the shoppers" at local grocery stores. I am sick of snot nose kids and teens standing at the end of the checkout with their money receptacles expecting the haggard shopper to just drop their money in to said receptacle. And what you get for it? NOTHING. They don't pack your groceries, they don't offer to help you with carrying them to your car, they don't even smile or acknowledge you unless they hear the sweet ka-ching of coins on coins …

Don't get me wrong; I fully support children's fundraising activities and am well known for buying whatever your kid is selling to finance their school trip. sports team or whatever. BUT for the love of fuck, EARN it! Do something, sell something, put on a show - don't just fucking stand there at the end of the checkout and expect handouts. Society is gearing these kids to expect things to be handed to them - panhandlers in training. Whatever happened to working to earn what you want ... I worry about the future of the human race …End of rant … —Sick and tired of the fleecing
