no, not me. i may be desperate but i'm not THAT desperate.
it's... sophia. lol.
jut someone who has to down loads of drink.
Hahahahaha (repeat to fade).
oh and urgh.
they ALWAYS look down. by the time they've realised you walking right by them
and walk directly behind them.
If you have headphones in I find staring at the floor and screaming along to imaginary lyrics works well too
its SO obvious!
i stopped t talk to them once when i was with him just to piss him off :)
1.i've worked in a call centre before, surely it wont be as bad as that because people wont be so rude and horrid and shouty to my face?
2.i can stand outside all day! yay!
3. i get to talk to loads of people! (who dont want to talk to me!)
4. £8.50 an hour!
5. i'll be making money for a good cause! <3
6. i cant afford to EAT
i didnt apply or anything, the man just stopped me and i said 'sorry! i dont have a job so no use asking me!' and so HE OFFERED ME A FERAKIN JOB!
enough people to sign up an hour to cover your wage
im not as thick as i look! i made sure it wasnt just comission first.
im applying for another job too, a receptionist in a salon, she said she wanted a picture to, why?
see what happens
Come work in my salon. Salon Salmon, it's called. So far it's just me, but I have grand ideas for this place, I can tell ya
they all have fake tans
im too white
Pale chicks with dark hair = hott. Not that I'm calling you pale, of course. The girl at the reception of my hairdressers is quite indie and generally a sexpot
Also, this is Salon Salmon. Different rules apply
Do you want the job or not?
if its good then yes please
will you be a nice boss tho?
And all the breaks you want. Plus, you can stick on whatever music you want (aside from pop punk)
If this sounds like the job for you, text me tonight with the secret code "can you remember to send me those mixtapes tonight, you stupid shit" and I will consider you employed
my perfect job!(aside from the pop punk fascism)
thanks boss man
they started speaking to be and I pointed at my headphones to indicate I was occupied, she shouted 'you could take them off' so I went back and ranted at her. I feel a bit bad now but she was quite rude.
tottenham court road let me know so I don't automatically ignore you
will do x
because im desperately in neeed of a job.
im already looking into volunteer work but its for something close to my heart (i want to help/visit/etc old people)
i cant afford to do ANY volunteer work though until i have an actual paying job. i literally cant make rent and im running out of food.
was the way sophia told me:
something about something says:
I JUST GOT OFFERED A JOB IN THE STREET!
therefore by extension.....
damn those bloody charities! trying to improve life for people! trying to save lives! DAMN THOSE BASTARDS TO HELl!
I wish I could tell you why, but don't you think that £8.50 p/h could be better spent?
i reckon sophia for £8.50p/h is pretty good value!
she never does
£8.50 p/h makes a charity £10 an hour then it's money well spent isn't it?
Is on a salary of £2 million?
And that if I give a charity £10, £1.80 will reach a good cause?
I work alongside a lot of charities, they make me despair.
And im appalled, I give money to charitie regularly, why isn't my money going to where i intend it?
"And that if I give a charity £10, £1.80 will reach a good cause?"
can you expand on that? surely it depends on the size of the charity, its administrative efficiency, the form of your donation etc.
Also, I dunno about £2 million, but I wouldn't want the head of the red cross to be anything other than outstanding...
the salaries at the top end have to at least be competitive if you want the best people. It's just the same as in Government.
Maybe not £2m though, where did you get that figure from?
just so I can ignore you.
you seem like you'd be good at that sort of thing :)
john reckons i'll be good cos of friendliness and approachability but i just will need to be more assertive
but you're not as arrogant as a lot of them seem to be and that makes you far more approachable.
Plus, being hotttt will help you ;)
he was pretty rubbish at it and got sacked when he didn't sign up 5+ people a day.
so watch out for that!
which is hilarious, as i've not heard her speaking since about 1993.
Or why people hate chuggers quite so much, unless they're particularly bothersome… And its not really mugging, if you sign up without really wanting to then maybe don't be such a passive, easily suggestable sucka? It's not THAT hard really…
I'm pretty sure you're not really working directly for the charity anyway though... Don't they do it through agencies. (which charity is it, out of interest?) Getting actual jobs at charities and NGOs is near impossible... I want one.
I reckon you'd be good at it!
is basically people inflicting themselves into your personal space. I just find it really bothersome. I wouldn't mind so much if it was one or 2 people, but I can't walk through Cardiff's main streets without being accosted by a Gladiators-style Gauntlet Run of brightly coloured vests and clip-boards.
I also signed up once, just 'cos the girl was hot. Damn them!
we wear t-shirts tho
this wont to be my advantage
an effective plan
i managed to walk past about 5 today just by saying 'no thanks' and keeping on walking. I feel i have to be politer to them than i am to big issue sellers/beggars for some reason. I just ignore them completely.
i hate people presuming to like me
when i dont its usually becuase i feel shy/to rushed/they suprise me and then dwell on it for ages after feeling all bad and worried i deflated thier balloon of confidence and optimism
"dont talk to me"
and feel too shy to talk to you anyway
mmmm sexy mean face
the charity chuggers
the insurance guys
I'm surprised there's any room left in the street for pedestrians. It's like an assault course just getting to the train.
the london lite guy and the london paper guy both stand by the entrance of the station and actually have a cometition to see who can give away more papers
the I am listening to music I obviously dont want to talk to you face but now I notice it offers no defense, they have obviously been retrained with no mercy tactics, it's war.
Picadilly Station in Manchester always used to full of no-win no-fee lawyers' touting for business and they fucked me off a lot.
A woman at Kings Cross Thameslink once said "Excuse me, do you pay for your dental work?" I thought she was trying to be funny so I told her to piss off and carried on walking. Only several seconds later did I realise she was something to do with health insurance.
So yeah, wanker.
Im not making this shit up.
this is a pretty immoral job
You'll be good at this, I reckon. Think you might *occaisonally* need to develop a thicker skin, though
What charity is it for? I signed up to Sense the other day. About a week later I got a handwritten postcard through the door from the girl saying thank you. I thought it was a really nice touch, seeing as she'd already got my money and so didn't really need to charm me any longer
im tougher than you think!
it's only if its personal that stuff really gets to me.
thats nice! you may find you get more thankyou's periodically!
i have a direct debit set up to a charity and at christmas i gt an advent calander with a picture of someone the charity had helped behind every door, better than chocolate :)
as you dont have to look them in the eye. On the street when someone tells you to fuck off to your face it will be a lot worse. Most people just ignore you thankfully
at the call centre i got it atleast 5 times an hour, i think people will be less quick to scream at a 5ft2 girl with a smiley face
i would imagine most people will be polite to you
when i was under 18 cos i could be nice as pie and they think they've got me to donate but then i say "no, i'm 16" IN YOUR FACE CHUGGERS, YOU JUST WASTED VALUABLE CHUGGING TIME TRYING TO WOO ME AND IT WAS ALL FOR NOTHING!
and decided that such a nothing post was not worthy. fucking PEDANT
more attractive women chugging on central london streets to make me feel both bad AND lonely at the same time.
How about you flirt with them for five minutes and then when they ask you for money, you walk off laughing?
Not that I do this, of course.
I like to sing the "I Recognise You're Saying Words, But It Doesn't Matter What You're Saying" song.
where ross shows off his flirting skillz? i'm worse.
I haven't seen that episode of Friends, no. But thanks for the insight into why you're worse...
but close enough.
For a moment, I actually thought it wouldn't be Friends.
I had to scrub it clean with this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdafrLN2-JM
I know I'd donate if I bumped into you in the street ;)
