I've had numerous requests for money by post. Chuggers have stopped me in the street. TV adverts have tried to pull all the right strings and now I've had the double-glazing style phone call. I can't quite believe it. If I haven't personally given you my phone number - don't bloody assume to use it.
Just in case you think I am a hard-nosed cow, I do think that most charities do fantastic work and I support a couple on a monthly basis. What I object to is my privacy being invaded and being made to feel guilty about someone else's situation. You can't possibly give to everything.
