This is a question I Quit!

Scaryduck writes, "I celebrated my last day on my paper round by giving everybody next door's paper, and the house at the end 16 copies of the Maidenhead Advertiser. And I kept the delivery bag. That certainly showed 'em."

What have you flounced out of? Did it have the impact you intended? What made you quit in the first place?

When I first moved to London from sunny South Africa, I did the usual bumming about and wasted a good deal of money on not much of worth. Finally being a bit short of cash I dived into the TNT magazine. The advert read something like:
"Make 100 pounds a day raising money for charity, save the planet and get rich at the same time."

Easy money eh???
NO not really, spent about 2 hours getting briefed on what we are raising money for, trees or something, as I recall and then get issued with a plastic bucket thing, some pamphlets and 'my patch'- OUTSIDE KINGS CROSS STATION. Now heres how you make your money, 10 percent of whatever gets put in your bucket you keep, nice no. NO, whoever can get 1000 pounds a day in charity donations on the street should be working for NASA or something its IMPOSSIBLE.
Imagine if you will a very green 18 year old standing outside Kings Cross station asking for donations to save some [email protected]$king trees in South America.......
Do you think ANYONE coming out of Kings Cross station cares about enviromental issues, do they [email protected]$k.
Proud to say I lasted all of 25 minutes before phoning the home base to tell them to stick it.
I returned the next day to drop off my bucket at 'reception' feeling a bit bad for not giving it more of a shot only to find a pile of about 30 returned buckets. Don't think they were too bothered.
How these charities make any money is beyond me.
