I'm tired of saving cereal boxtops, yogurt lids, and used condoms so that companies will give money to my favorite school or charity. Why don't they just cough up the cash without making us jump through all those hoops?

My thoughts exactly. Or the money collecting at check outs. The money gets donated in the name of the company that collected it. Yes, they do facilitate the collection. But Safeway could just cough up the cash itself instead of doing the make-you-fell-guilty shakedown.

Speaking of which, there is hardly a shopping centre... or even worse still, my favourite liquor store,
that doesn't have some arsehole at the entrance rattling a tin in your face, nowadays.

The thing that shits me the most though, is the fact that they are mostly European backpackers doing the
soliciting... and worse still, they're being PAID to do it.
