It's a crime against nature for that crap to continue to happen.


That is irritating as hell.

I’m confused. Don’t you guys just say “No thanks” and keep walking?

One shouldn't have to find themselves in a situation where they have to.

I dunno man. As far as interactions go, that’s a pretty easy one.

Irrelevant. Obviously it's not problem to decline in some form or fashion; it's the principal of the matter that I'm speaking to.

Yeah, people are over thinking it. "No thanks" and I immediately forget about the interaction until I say "no thanks" again when I leave and then I forget that one by the time I get to my car.

Yeah I mean, nobody wants to try to get sold something they have no interest in, but as long as there’s no follow up to the “No” it never bothered me.

The car wax/car cleaning product assholes standing outside of gas stations are the worst.

Them: Hey do you want to buy this car wax shit?
Me: No thanks
Them: But let me just give you an example on your car.
Me: No, I’m in a hurry
Them: It’ll only take a few seconds
Me: I said no. Bye.

In honor of this thread, I picked up my annual package of Keebler Coconut Dreams (e.g. Samoas) at Walmart tonight. $2 for 18 cookies.

What about the bell ringers that say "Merry Christmas... god bless you sir." They literally -blessed- you... you aren't putting a quarter in the bucket?

I just tell the Girl Scouts, "Go die in a fire!", and continue to walk past them outside da Jewels.

I’m not.

That’s easier then having to say no thank you to a Girl Scout

They aren't getting a quarter but I'm giving them a stern lecture about pushing their beliefs on others.

In our household, we say Happy Holidays and are proud of it.
