Bit Recycling

Worker #3116's blog, Corporate Casual, has this post recounting his and Clown Coffee's discussion today with a coffee shop employee about supporting breast cancer:

Fat Guy: Would you like to support breast cancer?
Clown Coffee: Is it free?
Fat Guy: Well, no, it’s not free.
Clown Coffee: Then no.
Fat Guy: You can support it for free by wearing this sticker.
Worker #3116: Yeah, wear that sticker. On your clothes.
Clown Coffee: I don’t want to wear the sticker.
Worker #3116: Can I get a medium iced coffee?
Fat Guy: Will you wear the sticker if I get it for you?
Worker #3116: No. I dont’t support breast cancer.


This sound remarkably like the last 1,000 conversations I've had Lacey about the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer:

Warehouse will be playing at Carpool in Herndon and the band has graciously offered to help me raise money for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer for the 3rd year in a row!

Ahh hemm....I love the sweater meat, but I also love the big casino.

Warehouse, however, I despise.

As I've said many times, I don't like breast cancer, and I certainly wouldn't wish it on anyone, but I am pro-breast and I am pro-cancer. I wouldn't want my charity to one special interest group to impact how I'm perceived by two others.
