5. It's all I can do not to say something "pointed" to those bell ringers outside every damn store.
I did call a local dry cleaner when they were running a clothing drive with the SA. I think the owner was actually shocked to hear about SA's discriminatory practices.

Too many people think that the worst thing SA does is that annoying bell ringing.
