who try and talk to you. ALL I FUCKING WANT IS A CHICKEN AND MAYO SANDWICH FROM BENJYS SO FUCK OFF YOU SILLY SHITTER.
they are shit.
that replying to "Do you have a minute?" with "No." works quite well.
They're just doing their job.
jobs that are fucking annoying.
say nothing ans stare at their chest.
They soon leave you alone.
i'll do that next.
The one who just spoke to me said
'don't look so dazed and confused'
the reason I was looking at confused, was because I was looking at one of these.
(as I recall, it was because I accidentally left £20 in the atm) and a man from Shelter approached me and I CRIED ALL OVER HIM. I think he might have quit after that.
Generally, wearing headphones and looking at your feet works quite well.
people doing surveys, or chuggers?
the number of chuggers on my walk home is increasing. i had to dodge seven on kentish town road alone the other day. most of them were attractive women, but i can reconcile this by the knowledge that attractive women would just ignore me anyway so i wasn't doing myself any potential disservice.
mum is a chugger bboy.
are sometimes nice to talk to because if you keep their hopes up you can just ramble on for a couple of minutes and have a laugh before moving on
sometimes it's the only human contact I have in a day.
it's an awesome way to practice talking to strangers since they HAVE to talk to you.
i was wearing a Seafood t-shirt, and one tried to engage me in conversation about the band (she did seem to know them, although i guess it could have been a bluff). i just looked awkward and told her i was on my way home and hungry and ran off.
i hope i never run into her about a gig :'(
now I have to give money to some charity every month. I might just close my bank account to get out of it.
when accosted by one, went 'ooh! you dropped something' while looking at the ground.
she looked down, he walked off.
she shouted after him 'fuck you! you think you're funny do you?'
he turned around and went 'yeah'
hahahaha what a cunt. but funny.
Chugger: Excuse me, Can I have a quick word?
Bloke: Velocity *runns off*
and forced me to give £5 a month to some charity for blind people.
It scarred me deeply. She had amazing powers of persuasion, I swear she actually held my hand as I signed her form.
but mine was a charity for monkeys :'(
i hate it when people knock on your door to try to persuade you. grrrr.
a cup of tea and everything. I was like a lamb to the slaughter ;(
invited some jehovas witnesses in once. they came round for about 6 nights on the trot.
i would do that. just for the company. but then i get my hair cut for the conversation.
had my headphones on and was walking past some chuggers. one said "do you like cows?",as she thought i couldnt hear her. unbeknown her, the headphones was the biggest pieces of shit in the world and never worked, so i clearly heard her, and replied "no" a the same time as looking at her as if she was a bit special. right in her face! she was mortified obviously at my amazing cuss.
we wont see the likes of those days again
that made me laugh. now, i look disturbed.
Chugger: "Could you give 5 minutes for Cancer Research?"
Me: "I'm a cancer research scientist."
Me: "Yeah. Well... bye."
You wouldn't get much done, would you?
I'm guessing they have to say that. I don't think people would respond well to chuggers who ambush you on the street, asking "Gis a direct debit into your account. Go on, gis."
Please restrict hilarious mental images to outside office hours, please.
