Many of the people who walked out of Wal-Mart’s doors that sunny Saturday couldn’t resist the waiting ball players and their fundraising buckets.
It was what our local Little League calls “Can Day,” and my daughter was there in full uniform looking cute as a button. It was definitely hard to say no to her or any of her teammates.
I supervised her with watchful eyes as she helped raise funds for her team, making sure she had a hearty “thank you” for those who chose to give.
It was an interesting time of “people watching” for me as I studied the different ways folks responded to the kids' fundraising efforts.
Normally the table is turned, and I’m that busy shopper coming out of Wal-Mart’s doors.
I see the baseball uniforms or the fundraising signs, and I make a quick assessment of the situation.
I’ve already spent too much, and there’s no way I can give up any more cash, right?
Carefully, I avoid the eyes of the fundraisers, and I move quickly on my way.
Phew… got myself out of that one … just think about the dollars I saved!
