Tesco being like 'hi do you want to round your bill up to the nearest £ and donate the extra to charity?'

Why don't you just do it anyway Tesco and pay for it yourself?

If they did it the customers would pay for it some how hidden in the price of the products. At least this way those who dont want to dont have to.

No.

If you go to the self service checkouts it asks you if you want to round up your bill and donate it to charity, they could round up everyone's bill and just pay it :)

So you want to say "pay charity for me tesco"?

Not "as well as"?

I dont get it, i interpreted it as you pay whatever it says, but Tesco pays difference to rounding to charity.

Yeah, it's the customer paying it, not Tesco.

I just think it's a bit weird for Tesco to be pushing that on their customers, if they want to do lots of charity for PR sake, then that's up to them.

That's why they do it though - so they can say 'we donated x to charity' when in reality it was their customers, a move I would approve of is if they paid for it, then it's a bit more... genuine?

It's probably so they can pass the contribution off as their own and claim some tax rebate or something.

Least I've managed to fix one of my annoyances at a local family level, buying still bottled water.

It's official - millenial snowflakes can't bear hearing language they find offensive and want to ban fawlty towers/the dam busters from ever being shown again.

As a elder millennial... Please don't bundle us all together. Not all of us are snowflakes.

I loved all that stuff.

It's just echo chambers. People seem to think that sticking their fingers in their ears makes things go away.

Just look at all the weirdos on social media.

That post reminded me to order Dam Busters on Blu-ray before they digitally change the dog to a labradoodle.

They've already bleeped out it's name apparently.

Yay history is being rewritten to keep snowflakes from hearing naughty words!

There is no Islamic country on earth that isn't full on scummy.

We are dealing with middle age societies. They should be studied at worst (from an anthropology view point), left to get on with it at best.

People who just book work meetings to suit themselves (say in the middle of an all day training session that they were responsible for arranging) who then get upset with you when you decline.
