    No not JWs but lads aged about 10 years old.

    They asked me if I wanted to buy an apple for £1.00. I said no thank cos I can buy them cheaper at the supermarket.

    Coversation went as follows;

    Me: Are you trying to raise money?

    Lads: Yeah for charity

    Me: whose charity, yours?

    Lads: (shuffling feet, looking at floor) yeeaah.

    Gave them £1.00 each for their cheek. LMAO

    Audacity can help a person succeed despite lack of ability or competence in any practical skill. There have even been books written about it, I hear.

    Good on them! I wouldn't have given them the quid though.

    It made me smile, also.

    Good on them for showing spunk and initiative.

    At least they were trying to sell something. I hate when anyone, kid or not, is just asking for money. In Michigan we have alot of folks- able bodied men mostly- holding signs on corners. I see them everyday. I would not give them a dime. They should at least be selling something; they're just lazy and scamming if you ask me.
