Do they stand outside the shops singing for donations?
I’d be ok (at least more ok) with that.
If you’re already donated as much as you’re going to at least you can smile politely at the group as you go in or leave the store. I mean, at least they are supplying some entertainment.
Here, it’s normally just one person standing there clanging his bell (those bells are really loud and strident, especially when you’re just a few feet away). I’ve literally gotten sudden headaches trying to get by them.
I guess the premise is that everyone is Christmas shopping every time they walk into a store this time of year. Obviously not true.
I mean, how many times a day or week do you have to put up with this?
