The other day my boyfriend and I were at the mall walking, passing by the many stores. We were in conversation not really paying attention to anybody or anything when suddenly I noticed there was a guy loudly talking to us, his voice quickly fading as we passed him. Apparently, some type of charity had set up a little kiosk and the people running it were shouting to people who walked by, asking them to donate. The guy who was trying to get our attention was really rude and said, "Oh yeah, keep walking! You don't even stop to listen to what I say, you just keep going even if it's for CHARITY."
Firstly, I didn't even know this guy was talking to us because we were walking fast and in conversation. Secondly, how does that charity expect people to donate to them when they shout at people who are walking by? Sometimes people are in a hurry... or just don't want to be hassled by rude charity workers asking for donations. For the record, I don't have any problems with charity.. but if I want to donate to one I would like to pick which one I donate to, and not be shouted at by it's volunteers.
