I promise the customer wasn't me

Conversation at Safeway yesterday between the cashier and the customer in front of me:

CASHIER: OK, your total is $69.37, may I round it up to $70 even and contribute a donation to prostate cancer awareness?

CUSTOMER: Prostate cancer what? Research?

CASHIER: Prostate cancer awareness.

CUSTOMER: Awareness? People aren't aware of prostate cancer?

CASHIER: Well, this helps to make sure everyone is aware.

CUSTOMER: How so?

CASHIER: Well for example, me asking for donations helps promote awareness of it.

CUSTOMER: So my donation helps to pay you to ask for donations.

CASHIER: Well--

CUSTOMER: No thank you.
