for some reason, charities/causes feel the need to set up booths in front of stores and bug the people going in and coming out for donations.
It's ALL.THE.TIME. I have tried to avoid people with their need for money at the following places MORE THAN ONCE:
The Pizza Joint
And Walmart is usually at least once a week!
Here's my problem- they chase you down! It's not like they sit politely off to the side and wait for people to come to them. NO! They stop you on your way in, and if you try to shake 'em off, they catch you on the way out.
I have serious anxiety about this. As I am parking the car, I notice them standing there, all irritatingly, and try to see if I can escape them by going in the OTHER door, or if perhaps I run they won't notice me. I HATE IT!
Okay, so, that's annoying. But, really, really there is more to the problem.
I am juggling two little boys, and if it's on the way OUT, also purchases. I do not want to listen to you tell me why it's important to donate to Youth Leadership.
And, I have no interest in giving money I DON'T HAVE to charities I know nothing about. I am not going to write you check just because you are annoying outside of the Walmart.
Today, the woman was SO in my face, that I finally interrupted her and said, "NO THANK YOU!" and ran inside.
And on the way out, she was busy shaking down some other poor soul, so I ran out as fast as I could so she couldn't try again.
She called after me, "Don't worry, we're here all weekend."
P.S. This is my 200th post. Just thought you should know.
