Was this an aberration or do they try this on everyone?
Went to Whole Foods after the gym. Get to the checker with my basket + reusable bag. I say, "there's a bag at the bottom." He starts to ask me if I want to buy a bag, but catches himself.
Checker: "do you want to donate your bag fee or deduct it?"
Checker: "Total is $37.19 - should I just round it up to $38 or $39 for a donation?"
Me: "No." delivered with my signature look.
I donate to the charities I want to donate to. I've never heard of any store doing this. How do you know what happens to that money?
