sorry,, no discount for charity of vodka, nice of the customer to give them to you thats all.

If they come at you with "why don't I see a discount" I would just reply "sorry but with the economy I cant be handing out discount to all the customers that give me gifts, that bottle of vodka isn't going to pay the bill's, just help you make more bill's.

Just do a little more work if possible,,like 10 minuets worth
