In order to get some redemption for a life time of sin I spent yesterday collecting for a charity called Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and keeping 40% of what I collected. 40% cash, 60% karma points. I can live with that.

09:00 - Positioned myself out the back of Coles with a tin and a grimace-like smile.

09:05 - Face began to ache from all the smiling.

10:00 - Smile started to wobble so experimented with Being Nice To People.

11:30 - Felt peckish so cracked open a tin of beans. Realised I felt more guilty about eating Safeway beans outside of Coles than I did about getting 40c commission on every dollar I collected.

12:30 - Concentration lapsed and the ability to say "Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease" diminished rapidly.

13:45 - Will To Live left the carpark.

13:50 - Someone bought me an ice cream because they didn't have any change. I'm not sure how this will help the charity but I'm sure in some grand, cosmic way someone, somewhere will benefit from it. Probably just me though.

14:00 - Gave up on Being Nice and opted for the Pity Vote.

15:00 - The cold, dead stare of a broken woman must have had an effect because my tin was now full and one lady even donated $20. I felt a pang of guilt over my commission.

15:01 - Pang of guilt passed.

15:20 - Went home $70 richer. Not too bad considering I didn't actually do anything to get it.

Thank you, people with severe lung disease.
