Does anyone else loathe having people you don’t know knock on your door in the evening? I just hate it. I never want to give money or time to anyone at my door. So this poor little boyscout just got the brush-off and now I feel like a jerk. Poor little guy. Probably has to raise money and wanted me to pledge him in a something-a-thon. I just hate that kids have to do this door-to-door fundraising. I dread having my kids do it. I’ll probably just buy everything they’re selling so they won’t have to (and so I won’t have to stand on the sidewalk and watch them ring doorbells). Never mind that I especially wouldn’t want to support the boyscouts with their history of systemic homophobia and intolerance; I still feel bad for this little kid. Plus, his mom or dad probably saw me brush him off and now thinks I’m the bitch of the neighbourhood. Sigh.
