Sucker

Can someone please tell me...Do I have a big sign on my forhead saying sucker??? Or pick me I can't say no??? Seriously I can't go anywhere where one of those stupid in store creditcard things or charity raffels asks me to be involved!

Take today for example...I went to get mu lunch from the shopping centre and while i was walking, clearly on a mission, one of these people that have there own tables set up (this one was for animal welfare or something along those lines, free the bears!) and I almost got the whole way past when the guy asked me how was i doing? And I could have been just like countless other people and just pretened I didn't hear him, or that he wasn't talking to me, but i knew that he was I could feel it, and as much as I wanted to I just couldn't out right ignore him, but then i was in...I was trapped and he was telling me about this stiff he was promoting and all I could think was, oh my goodness here I am again!


It doesn't matter... all it takes is a smile or a question and they have got me! Maybe its coz I have been in there situation trying to colect for the good old salvos, but I don't think I ever push my self into other peoples conversations. I know its there job, but why me....why always me

The world is such a funny place!

I hope you didn't sign up for anything from this guy. I had the same thing happen to me last year and now I find myself paying $25.00 a month supporting WSPCA which is an organisation that tries to prevent Cruelty to Animals. I guess you can have me to thank for you inability to say No!

there are times to be generous and times to be tight, when someone asks you to give to something in that shopping centre, it is time to be tight, if they really want you to give to them, they will let you go home and investigate.

But yes you are a sucker!!!!
