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?

You need a trap door, or some type of chugger proof fence.

I thought you said “chugger proof face”. I was going to say, I think I have one. I never get chuggered. I walk through Civic all the time.

I am suddenly self-conscious about my lack of chuggery.

HA me too. I’ve actually had them walk around me, or put their head down so I wouldn’t look at them.

I have the same issue. Never ever get chugged.

I even had a homeless woman walk directly past me a couple of weeks ago, to ask the person walking behind me for money.

It’s great.

Just take the exact opposite position to what ever the cause is.

Once the chuggers realise that your a “right winged nazi who eats children for breakfast, plays soccer with the heads of dead puppies and chops down tree for fun” they tend to leave you alone…

Asking if they are affiliated with “Free The Carbon” sometimes works.

I had a chugger come to my house the other night for the “Fred Hollows Foundation” – she gave me a great spiel, and was super friendly, till i said i could not afford to sign up for ages and continuously pay the charity. Then she said ” hey listen, i hear that all the time – don’t you think that you could sapre 20 dollars a week for some people who need their eyes” – she must of got the picture from the peeved look on my face because she said ” ok i understand seeya” and joined up with the 5 other chuggers standing on my lawn waiting.

Gran Torino their stupid arses, I say!

Another brilliant suggestion from our resident Brain(less) Trust.

Although not strictly chugger-related, I got [i]the[/i] dirtiest and most judgmental look I have ever received from a young employee at a certain Canberra Centre charity shop, after I walked in (was accosted about one foot inside the door, after I kid you not two seconds), said I was after a specific item, was led to the item and handed it, asked the price and promptly put it back down… in an instant, I was persona non grata.

Sounds like you need a “No Hawkers” sign.

Oh yes, may I add that the same institute called me several times, claiming that they are exempt from “DoNotCall”, wanting donations, when I asked them if they were related to Heart Foundation, he laughed and said “No”. It was some Gold Coast call centre.They’ve stopped calling, after I kept asking them to call me back “sometime next week, then I will give donation”.
They really “grind my gears”. 🙁

I got chuggered in Woden. She called me beautiful, I stared at her boobs for a bit and then walked off after I got bored.

They probably singled out your office for a surgical ‘strike’ after the last anti-chugger post the other week! Hahaha! 🙂
