Went to the grocery store on the weekend and I walk in the store and was asked "Would you like to buy some girl guide cookies?" by two little girls. "No thanks," I replied. Upon standing at the check out there were some kids at the end of the conveyor belt bagging groceries (for those that bought bags). I only had two items so after paying I just grabbed them and walked past the kids who then asked me to donate money toward their basketball team or whatever it was, once again I said, "Sorry," and went to exit the grocery store where I was then again asked if I'd like to buy a box of girl guide cookies!
I know there are particular groups that have to raise money, but I'm sorry I don't like to be asked. If you're going to be in the entrance of the store (if it's big enough) set up a table or have a sign that says what you're selling and where the money is going, that way people can read as they walk by and have the choice to donate/buy and not get bombarded and asked multiple times when you enter and when you exit the store.
I just hate how they have every possible area covered with children asking for money! —Mrs. Scrooge
