So I had to go out and run some errands; hit the pharmacy, the bank and things like that and as I am walking down the street I am constantly being harassed by “canvassers” for numerous charities.
They don’t take “No thanks, I am not interested” as an answer; they get in my face, block my progress and I have to push through.
Now I have NEVER ever had this happen by a “what I like to call” a “beggar” or “homeless person” when or IF they even do approach or ask for a hand out and I reply with “no thanks” or “sorry” they respond with, “no worries have a great day – take care!”
What else is absolutely crazy is that “street-person” can get arrested and thrown in jail for the behaviour that many of the “charity canvassers” exhibit.
OH and BTW here is a tid-bit for those people that are asking me to support some charity or cause, you wouldn’t harass that homeless person but guess what, right now technically I am homeless. I am also living with a massive disability. Just because I am clean, have fresh clothes and you can not see the facts/symptoms of what cause my disability doesn’t mean I don’t have it.
When I am not struggling to live maybe then I will help others out.
I am not without compassion, and those that know me know that for sure, just because I live in the First World doesn’t mean I don’t have problems that are just as important.
