THE numbers of incredibly irritating people who are prepared to be ‘chuggers’ is dangerously low, charities have warned.
Naturally annoying people are favoured by charities as they are the only individuals willing to engage strangers in lengthy, trite conversations and then ask them for their bank details.
Charity spokesperson Francesca Johnson said: “We’ve had to exploit groups that are already innately infuriating. Younger people are always a bit dickish, and students are particularly tiresome, so they have been an excellent source for us.
“We also like failed stage actors who are seething with resentment, as they’re particularly good at passive-aggressive emotional blackmail.”
She added: “We don’t know what will happen if we have to rely on people giving to charity because they want to rather than because they’ve been guilt-tripped by a horribly jovial twat.”
