There's a guy who asks the same question to a million Haligonians every day from his post by the Second Cup on Spring Garden. That question is: "Excuse me, sir/madam, would you be interested in purchasing a copy of Street Feat?" Only once in my five years in Halifax have I seen anyone actually take him up. This man is perhaps the most polite salesperson in the city, and yet he is met with an unbelievable amount of rudeness. His job may seem uncomplicated, but it can't be that easy, especially when one sees how much rejection he faces during each shift. How about a nice, "No thank you," instead of just walking past and pretending you don't see him?
