I just need to vent here because something happened which has quite upset me. I had a charity worker knocking at my door. The charity was to sponsor children in the Congo for a minimum of 2 months.
I explained that we were not in a financial position to sponsor anyone at the moment, but we would be willing to give a donation to the cause. The woman did not seem to enthusiastic about this but didn't decline.
I went to my purse thinking I had $10 in there but only had a $20. So I bit the bullet and took it out to her. $20 is ALOT of money in my house at the moment. I gave her the money with a smile and she took it, lips pressed together going "hmmm' with a really ungrateful, annoyed look on her face. Like $20 wasn't enough! She didn't even thank me!! I was so shocked! I was like, 'is there a problem' and she is like 'oh no this will help save someone's life' as she was walking away. WTF!!!
I wasn't expecting anything special. Just a thank you and a smile would have been nice. Instead I just got attitude that my donation wasn't enough! A $20 donation is a $20 donation! It's really upset me to be honest. I feel like I just threw $20 away. I didn't get any pleasure giving in this instance.
Please tell me I'm being stupid or something if you think I am. It's annoyed me so much I actually want someone to tell me to get over it.
Or agree with me haha! Vent over!
