Management made the rounds today asking if people wanted to donate to the United Way. I said that I did not want to, yet I still have to sign the paper? I usually don't donate via this method and in the past I have always thought it was a bit odd about the signing even when not donating, but this time I got the urge to actually find out what the reasoning is behind this. I can understand signing the paper if I WAS donating so that they have my authorization to take the money out of my check, but if I prefer not to donate why dont they just not give me a paper to fill out? Do they really need to have some kind of official paper saying that I wasnt donating?
It doesnt feel much different then a random person asking me on the street if I want to donate to some charity, and I say not but they oddly ask me to check the box and sign their paper anyway.
