A Monday Moan: Not So Sweet Charity


What makes you moan?

Here are a few of my moans…

Moan One

I’m all for charity and people giving up their time to do fundraising for good causes etc. However, there are good ways and not so good ways for this to be carried out. One of the bad ways I frequently experience of a lunch time when I go to the nearby shopping mall to get my lunch…

Trying to get people to part with their money when they are in a rush is hard enough. It’s even harder when you see the same people everyday but you have to learn the correct way of asking. There’s one annoying b***h I see every single day and she always says the same stupid thing that just pi***s me right off. She has a bucket and is collecting for a Children’s Cancer charity and like I said, I take my hat off to her for doing this. At the same time I also want to whack her around her stupid, f***ing head with my hat once I’ve taken it off!

Why? Why do I want to inflict hat related injuries on a kind hearted lady?

Well, it’s what she says:

“Would you like to help children with cancer?”

Not – “would you like to give some money to help children with cancer?”. I mean what the f*** are you meant to say to that? Of bloody course I would like to help, what kind of crazy ass question is that? Who the f*** would even think of saying no? Me, that’s who! I have to say no every single day because I don’t carry money. I feel bad because of her poor questioning skills!

Chuggers (Charity Muggers) – you are not funny now f**k off out my way! Enter a caption

I’m on a roll so I’m going to continue bashing the very nice but stupid charity workers. There used to be another man in the same shopping mall who would collect for Cystic Fibrosis. A very worthy cause and I commend him for what he does. However, when a man holds up a collection bucket towards me as I walk past and just says:

“Cystic Fibrosis”

I’m sorry, what? Are you selling it? Do you have it in your bucket? What. About. It? Go talk to that woman over there at least she has words!

Moan Two

This one isn’t really a rant more of a realisation which I have put together in graph format…

  1. Do they do it every day? I hate it when you go shopping at the supermarket and you are accosted before you can even get your trolley. Every week it is a new charity. I wouldn’t mind donating but when you find that only 1 cent of a dollar goes to the actual people they are supposed to be helping makes me cringe. The rest of the money goes to the bureaucrats running the organisation. Makes you think doesn’t it.

  2. Girl Scouts at entrances to stores being encouraged to run you down to buy overpriced Thin Mints.

    Sure, Thin Mints are awesome, but don’t maul me!
