Addicted to crack. [Jan. 30th, 2002|04:45 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Hi, my name is Steve. I come from a rough area. I used to be addicted to crack but now I am off it and trying to stay clean. That is why I am selling magazine subscriptions.
He just came to my door.

I told him to fuck off.[1] As I did the person that called me earlier. And the people that stand on street corners pretending they're poor when they're really not.

No love for people that bug me.

[1] Which came out like, "No, sorry... I'm not interested." I wish I could say "fuck off" and not feel guilty. :-P

I love those people. One that's by my apartment, well about a mile away, is listening to a walkman all the time, is dressed in warm hunting clothing, and has a friend with mountain bikes and a backpack in the bushes.

i have an issue (!) with big issue sellers.

cos when it started, most of them really were homeless people (complete with shaggy beard and dog) trying to make an extra bob or two. which i dont have a problem with.

but nowadays they aren't. or perhaps some of them are, but most of them aren't. which means i dont feel like giving them money at all, because i never know. so because of the scroungers (who just do it because its less effort than a proper job) the people that really need it suffer.

I had one of those people come to my door. And they really did say the drug line. I told them that I didn't need a magazine subscription right now, and she answered with "Well of course you don't, you need a new magazine like I need a hole in my head" (I'm not kidding) If she knew I didn't need a magazine why did she ask? Ask for money. I'm probably less likely to turn a beggar down then a solicitor (is that how you spell that?).

The trick is to say it fast and close the door before you look him in the eye. Trust me, it works.
