just a warning, if you have a habit of handing over money when feeling guilty or sympathetic like i do, lock the damn door and disconnect the door bell The Epilepsy Foundation (either delibrate or unknowingly) must be raking in the donations in my area, as the door-to-door person is a 16-18yo mentally disabled kid. without knowing much about it, i'm guessing he has down syndrome. anyway, he knocks on the door and recites what he's been told to say: "hello my name is david i am from the epilepsy foundation would you like to make a donation" (he wasn't aware of his ryhming talent) i was caught off-side, yet i had a wad of notes in my pocket because i was planning to go out on saturday night with some old work mates. i instinctivly replied "sorry mate, i'm flat broke" and the look on his face..... speechless he said "ok no money have a nice day bye" and turned to walk away. i stopped him and asked if i had to fill anything out, and that i'd donate i ended up handing over $80, and it made me feel like i made his day, but i'm pretty sure he'll unknowingly guilt trip everyone in my street to part with their money. good side - The Epilepsy Foundation will get nice fat donations, which is great!! bad side - well.. i dunno, seems like they're using him, and i doubt he's getting good money from it. not to mention i can't go out on saturday, haha (no loss, maybe i saved a life or 2 with my donation, ).. but yeah.. if you can't afford it but have cash on you.. you better have an ice cold heart.
