I volunteered

Mon Sep 22, 2014, 5:04 AM


Yo I just wanted to share an experience of volunteering in Paris :XD:

Before I begin I want to insist on the fact that it's a particular experience and not all volunteering will leave you this impression. No really don't go "it's not always like that >:U" on me because I know. I know.

Anyway it all started because both my neighbor and roommate work at a company that go on the street to get donators for Unicef, International Handicap and other similar associations. They asked me if I was interested in doing something similar to their job : and by the look on their face, I knew they were thinking that the task was nearly impossible for a shy lil'shit like me. But I accepted anyway.

So Saturday morning, 7 am everyone wake the f**k up and got ready to work. I arrive at the place, we take coffee,  I greet the fews I know, and feel like there's only workers and no volunters.Except me. It was the case for the team I was in for sure, I don't really know about the others.

So our mission was to make people on the street sign for a petition against landmines and subminutions grenade : with a topic like that, sound easy enough right? wrong :U

Since everyday the people in the street talk to you to get money from you, people are really avoiding you like the plague. I got rejection after rejection, and had to learn the best speech pattern to get their attention :
"We only need signatures, no money"
"it's for the childrens, just a signature"
"don't ignore me, bro D:"

It was so hard for me I only got something like 43 signatures, while the other had 10 sheets done (20 signatures per sheets) and the people of Paris are.such.weirdos. when they want :XD:

one looked at me and said for no reason "we already suffer enough as healthy people, so why bother with handicaped one?" I was speechless :XD: I got insulted a few amount of times too, not that I deserved it for once.

The whole team was cool though, and since I was a volunter nobody expected great things from me so that was a relief :XD: but I feel my roommate and neighbor will forever remember that I ran away from something that is easier than their jobs. I honestly will not say the opposite,
Their job is hard as fuck.

Anyway that's it for the story, because I have to go back to twerk work.
