Chugger menace expanding

By johnboy 9 November 2011 22

Not content with targeting the weak willed in Garema Place I’ve just seen an expansion of chugger mendacity.

The bugger just walked into our Civic office and pulled out the flip card before I could tell him I was busy and ask him to leave.

He was chugging for the Heart Research Institute who are now off my Christmas card list.

Have a thought for receptionists throughout town.

What’s Your opinion?

I suggest that we all avoid these chuggers like the plague, and also avoid those charities that use them (such as UNICEF, World Wildlife Fund, the Surf Lifesaving Foundation and the Heart Research Institute) because they are all blood-suckers that give genuine charities a bad name.

I was “chugged” by The Red Cross at my doorstep. Weston Creek.

Used to be that people would ask for a cash donations, or even sell cookies. Now even that is undiscussed. Now it’s credit card details—why would I want to put my credit card details on a piece of paper, to someone I’ve just met, who is walking from door to door? I did see someone signing up for Fred Hollows at Multicultural Fest in Civic.

Must say that it’s been a while since someone tried to sign me up for a different phone or Internet plan, which is what these door knockers used to do. Bible-discussers were around on the Saturday just past, un-evolved.

Have found having a Rottweiler handy when chuggers/door to door collectors come calling.
