Shadowcat14 6 years I always walk down the city street with my earbuds in. The petition people tend to leave you alone and if not you can ignore them and it doesn't look (that) rude. gbychan 6 years LOL Maybe 4-5 years ago, I was walking on campus, coming dangerously close to some obnoxious sounding women with clipboards, who were soliciting something from innocent passerbyers. Then suddenly my dad called, so I picked up the phone and started chatting. That's when one of the women started yelling at me that I was just pretending! I just ignored her. :P My sister years later had the same experience with someone at the on-campus Army recruiting table. When challenged, she actually held the phone out and asked if he actually wanted to talk to the caller! :) Jyramiah 6 years I do this all the time. It's super effective!
