In Ireland we have charity muggers standing on the streets collecting for charity (we call them ‘chuggers’). Irritating as hell, they stand right in front of you as you’re walking down the street bombarding you with a request to make a donation. I regard this as ‘catcalling’ because it’s unwanted attention. I always ignore them becuase I don’t owe them a response. Just like a woman doesn’t owe a guy a response if he pays her a compliment on the street.
