Job stuff

Hmm. I've been thinking more about my mistake from yesterday, and trying to work out where the key point was that I went wrong. E.g. I could have simply stuck to my guns when she originally asked me for money, and kept walking, thus avoiding the whole thing, which is what I normally do. However, that's a bit of a hard-line attitude to take. I guess the thing there is to offset it by giving money to Crisis (where I did volunteer work a while back) or similar, so that they can exercise their better judgement... However, I think the main turning point was in the supermarket - if I'd said there "no, you don't need a trolley, I'll buy you a sandwich/baby food, and that's it, so a basket will do", then I probably would have been better off.
