I would have to totally disagree. Most people that go to fast food places, go there because their to lazy to cook anything. And most lazy people, don't have the best jobs, aka they don't make a lot of money. And secondly, a lot of the people that go to fast food places are poor, because they spend 5 dollars a meal twice a day. Now I'm not saying that everyone that goes to taco bell fits this, but a very large portion do. Alot of people I know fit this catagory. Mid 20 year olds, dead end job, no savings, and they go to fast food places 10+ times a week. Then complain they never have money to do anything. Hmmmm, why might that be?
And I have to agree, people dont like being made feeling guilty. In fact, I never carry cash, so if I go to a store that has a santa, or veterans at the doors asking to donate, I'll either leave or find a different door.
Your statement seems the most logical explanation, but humans don't make sense 90% of the time.Edited by Bryst - 10/23/11 at 2:00pm
