The Big Issue

There was a time when I always gave to The Big Issue sellers. They were always polite and enthusiastic. Lately, however, they seem to consist of somewhat aggressive foreigners. Take Saturday, for instance. I went into Deal to do some shopping and was accosted by a Big Issue seller outside Marks & Spencers. Now normally I don’t carry cash with me and I didn’t then. I had to do some shopping in Marks so got the counter assistant to give me some cash back on my card. As I went out, I offered to buy a copy, was told ‘Only one pound fifty’ so handed over my money. Immediately the seller’s tone changes. ‘No change, no change,’ he shouted. I would have been quite happy had he spoken politely. As it is, that is the last time The Big Issue is getting any money from me.
