I just told a 10 year old kid with big blue eyes that no, I was not interested in supporting her school trip by buying stuff from her. I feel like a bitch. Didn't even think of a good excuse to tell her. Just:

School girl, very young and sweet: Hi, would you want to buy lottery tickets to support our class trip?
Me, tired and grumpy from annoying schoolwork: No.

*awkward silence*

Me, too late: um, I don't have any money on me.
Girl, visibly relieved by the lie to stem the awkwardness: Ah, okay, bye!

Not a great day...

Coward! I can just imagine a little girl being not only rudely rebuffed by a scary lady, but having said woman stare beliggerently at her until she ran away. It would have made my day really...

I'm sorry. I'll remember that for next time. Stare and say nothing. Will do!

I've been feeling the same about sellers of =OSLO the last couple of days. I've meant to buy one of the latest edition, but each time I've passed a seller I've been so absorbed in my own exam-nerve-wrack-self modus that I've probably been given them the evil eye. And I feel like the smallest person afterwards!

I don't MEAN to be a bitch, but I just don't function socially when my brain is filled up with thousand thoughts. Glad it's not only me...

I know! I feel like I can't talk to people anymore...

Oh well, at least we know it'll pass. :)

I would have paid money to see that exchange. That is awesome.

The only thing funnier would be if you asked her how many people know where she is at at that moment. Now I want to do that but, I only get adult's trying to sell crap at my door.

I believe the correct answer to people trying to peddle good that you have absolutely no interest in is something along the lines of "Fuck you! I'm a shark!"
