I went to the store today and I walk inside to see two dudes [looking very much like used car salesman] looking at me. I see a table next to them that says "Childrens Miracle network" or whatever.
They begin the speech "sir we're giving out free $20 gift certificates..."
I cut him short and said "no thanks man"
He kind of looked at me like "but what about the poor children?"
I love giving to charities, especially for children etc. But i can't STAND the ones that try to guilt you into it or ones that are handled by used car salesman types.
The grocery stores will also ask you right in front of everyone in line....."do you want to donate a dollar to....". Then I feel like an arse saying NO. So half the time I do it.
I love the salvation army with their pales and the person ringing the bell.....no words...just standing there fighting off the cold weather.
