A Small donation

Someone at work asked me for a donation to the Haiti fund today. I only had a couple of quid in my pocket at the time so i gave it to him.
"Is that it ?, you skingy git" he said " you must be earning a fortune and you give two fucking quid ?".

Now don't get me wrong, i do think you should help in any way you can and i believe in charity, blah blah blah. But my pet hate in life is superior bullying shitheads who think they can tell me how much i should give to charity and assume that trying to humiliate me into giving more will work.
I nearly twatted him. I don't give to anyone hassling me in the street, i won't give anything to a charity that asks for a certain amount (£5 per month will pay for....wot ?) and i hate those that expect me to sign something.

Am i a bad person ?. I don't know, but i'm gonna make this bastard life a miserly and find out exactly how much he's collected, where the money goes, and how long he keeps it in his pocket before he passes it on.

Had an email tonight from an old school friend. He contacted me through friends reunited. A web site that i never ever visit. I once logged on to have a look round and have never been back since. All this time later someone wants to say hello. I know the name but i don't even think he was in our year. what the fuck does he want ?.

the way i see this he thought you were a sitting target his response proved it deferentially keep an eye on him surprised how much of it went to charity and how much he`d bullied ryan into paying.
todays pick was lovely loved to be locked in that locker room with BOTH cant decide honest:}

I'm getting the impression you're as much into locker rooms as much as me! £2 from each of the UK'S population is £120 million which proves you've given more than the average. Tell him to F@CK off

Mambam!

Giving to charity is a personal decision and the amount given should be up to the individual.

I'd tell him to fuck off!!! (At least in my head I would).

And am I the only one that doesn't know what a quid is?

I always restrict my giving to certain charities that I know about - how the money is spent etc. and sponsorship of people at work for stuff. I never give to collectors - it might just go straight into their pockets.

Anyway, your school "mate" might want you to give some money to his charity?

many charities in the US take a fee for administration services, some as much as 45%! what you give is your decision. Your coworker might just take a cut for himself. he is a ass!

Paul said...

Dean, a quid is slang for one pound sterling.

It sounds like a pretty reasonable approach to charitable giving. Anybody who talks to you the way that guy did, deserves to be told off.
