Well, to call it begging seems a little harsh, but I don’t know what other word to use.
I don’t know if anyone else has encountered this sort of situation, but once in a while, I’d say about once a week, a guy comes into the library and walks around handing out a small pamphlet like thing. Inside it shows how to do sign language for all the letters of the alphabet, and on the front, it says something along the lines of (rough paraphrasing) “I’m a deaf/mute person that cannot find work. Please support me by donation.” and “Suggested donation: $2” After he places it down, about five minutes later, if no one offers him money, he picks up the pamphlets again and leaves.
So far, when he places it on the desk I’m at, aside from glancing at what it is, I’ve pretty much ignored him.
I’m wondering what if I should say something to the people in charge at the library for this. He’s not disturbing anyone or anything, at least not that I know of. He just makes his rounds quietly, but it is becoming to be a weekly annoyance, and it’s beginning to irk me for an reason I can’t seem to put into words.
So, what to do? Say something or just put up with it?
