Comment: I was verbally assaulted by a MADD rep.. (Score 1) 703

A few years back I was walking through a subway station in Toronto trying to get to college. A single (female) MADD rep was standing in the halls with a collection box begging for money.

I didn't know much about them, but I believed MADD was a good cause. At the time I was a poor student, so I humored her and said "No thanks, not today" (as opposed to ignoring her existence as is normal on the Toronto subway). And you know what she says to me?

Oh, so you SUPPORT drunk driving?

At this point I wanted to throttle her, I was absolutely speechless. I walked away with my jaw agape, stupefied. I wish I had said, "no, but I'll never support MADD again because of your sickening implications" or something to that effect. Since that day I've decided I'll never give to any charities ever again. They are simply too manipulative for their own good.
