The day’s nowhere near over, and I’ve already been asked for donations/charity 13 times:
I stopped at the grocery store this morning: someone collecting for some anti-drug program at the doorway.
At work there were two collections: someone having a baby and someone retiring.
At lunch I stopped at a drug store (Would you like to donate a dollar to help our troops do… I forget what) and went for a walk in the park: three separate panhandlers.
Back at work, someone selling crap to raise money for some band trip.
I checked my personal e-mail – five requests for “support”, i.e. donations for various charities.
And no doubt there’ll be one or two in real mailbox when I get home, and then there’s the appeals on tv and …
I’m sure all (or at least most) of them are for a good cause, but I’m starting to feel harassed by it all. I think I need to get a button that says “Wearer has no money on her.”
