In the past couple of years, my local town centre has become infested with all these different companies, stopping you on the way into shops and either making you listen to a sales pitch about something you don't want or asking for money for charity. I don't mind the charity guys so much, I don't like the intrusive way they sabotage passersby like a pack of hungry wolves, waiting to pounce, but then if it makes money for a good cause, so be it. It's the people who are trying to sell you stuff that annoy me. I was walking through the town today when I spotted some, I looked up and saw a poster about funeral care, and the guys were stopping some old lady. That's nice for her when she's innocently walking home quite happily, and suddenly some youth in a suit comes up to her and basically says 'so you know how you're probably gonna die soon'..Anyway, I thought, well I can walk past without getting bothered by them, because i'm pretty youthful. As I was walking past I noticed some other guys that had pitched up behind them. They were almost hiding when they jumped out at me and asked what broadband provider I had. I've wanted so much to just tell them to f**k off but my manners wont allow it. I told them I was with Be Broadband and that I was very happy with the deal I was getting. He looked at me in a kind of agressive manner and said 'i've never heard of them' almost as if I was lying. He then brushed it off and told me to come over to his little stand thing. At that point I just began walking away, in the distance I could hear him shouting me to come back. While it made me laugh slightly, I felt like my personal space had been violated. I mean, people will stand there for ages listening to these sales people because they're too politce and nice to walk away, some are even polite enough to sign up to these money grabbing schemes. I really hope that this kind of thing is banned soon.
Anyway, sorry if this has been heavy reading. To lighten the mood, here's a picture of some otters:
*If you didn't read any of this and immediately skipped to the otters, God have mercy on your black soul.
