I’m still feeling pretty angry over an episode that happened earlier today. I was out with my mum for a leisurely stroll around the neighbourhood and she was approached by an individual who possessed certain characteristics that evoked pity.
At first, said individual offered some “products” to her, citing that it is for “charity.” According to the individual, these products are “free”; the recipient is given the freedom to decide whether they would want to give a token amount to said individual.
Despite my mum’s reluctance, said individual forced the products on my mum’s hands. My mum tried to return the products but said individual physically withdrew from us. Following which, the individual followed us for some distance, before insisting my mum to pay.
Lo and behold! The individual pointed out that there is a price tag on the product, My mum then paid to avoid any unnecessary drama.
