now it’s school holidays time, and there’s an increased abundance of kids joining those part time jobs…like giving flyers, selling ice cream in HDB blocks etc.
I especially hate those insurance and donation people who camp outside MRT stations and bus interchanges alike, progressively targeting people especially those NSFs in uniform for time and money. somehow the adult ladies of various insurance companies like to talk to uniformed personnel and I always try my best to avoid eye contact and walk away immediately. may seem rude but hey, I’m on my way home and please don’t interrupt my journey.
and then those donation stuff. these kids will try to stop people and then show some paper and talk long story of some organisation and please donate $2 or $10 and get free pen or notebook or something like that. and then they earn commission by doing this. what kind of donation is this? more like begging and cheating our money! mostly scam I think. I’d rather give some coins to those flag days…more efficient, give as much (or little) as you like, no questions asked.
hence, I’d never be this kind of sales promoter who goes around street touting.
though sometimes there are exceptions, haha. like the other day I was eating ice cream and trying to stall some time before going to the MRT station. this AIA insurance person approached me and ask me to do survey. ok fine. but I hate it when they ask for my personal particulars and especially my contact number.
I wonder how come got this “unknown number” and china person that kept calling/smsing me. weird.
