Ugh, this supposedly new neighbor just came knocking on my door. She said she was trying to help kids out by earning points for something or other by trying to get magazine subscriptions, and I said, “No thank you.”
She said, "What, you’re not interested? You don’t even know what I’m gonna say. Did I ask you for money? You don’t have two minutes you can spare?"
So I said, "Uh, ok, I can spare two minutes…"
And she said, “You don’t need money now, I can come back.” :whoosh:
So then I said, "No thank you. I’m not interested."
And she jumped down my throat and said, “Fine. You can go help the next 300 kids that come knocking on your door. You’re one of the rudest people I’ve encountered today!” And stalked off.
The only thing I could think of to say to that was, “No, I was nice and polite to you. I’m just not interested. You’re the rude one!” Then I slammed the door. I’m sure I really got her thinking with that witty retort and all, but yuck. I hate people like that. Just because I didn’t have the inclination to give a total stranger my money, and she has to come to my house and treat me like a loser and yell at me! And in front of my kids! :gah:
