What do you do in this situation?
« on: March 06, 2008, 06:47:18 PM »
I've searched in the forum but didn't find anything, if this thread already exist just don't be mean :'(...

What do you do when you are diaboloing just for fun and someone comes and gives you alms (google translator!)? I mean, you're not asking for money, but they give you money anyway...
The problem is that here in Brasil juggling at the streets and asking people for money is very common - that's the way many poor people make money. So, whenever I am diaboloing, people even sometimes throw cois at me - makes me very angry. I generally tell these people to **** off... What do you do?
Creeeeeeeeeeeeeeu!

If you really dont like people throwing coins at you, you could try diaboloing in a less public spot. If not you could just make your self some extra money  :-\

if they keep doing it, I would put up a big sign saying 'i don't want you money'
and then put a big hat next to it, to see who does give you money...

If they want to give you money, Let them?

To them you'd be "performing" they wouldn't know the difference between you and some guy down the street attempting to play guitar.

I was going to suggest the same thing, but then figured that the homeless person might realize s/he has a good source of income right there and just mooch and not try to get off the street anymore. Maybe if it's just a one off thing, then it's okay.

I suggest giving it to charity if you don't want the money.

II generally tell these people to **** off... What do you do?

Whatever you do, don't yell at them or do anything else negative. They think that they are helping you, and might get really offended, so after being yelled at they are likely to spit on the next street performers cup, and he might actually need the money. If you have to practice on the street, have a sign as suggested.

I don't use these terms (even because many people don't speak english in non-english speaking coutries 8)). But the meaning is basically: go away , I don't want your money.
You quite didn't get the point.

Yes it can get anoying when you buy a string like that and i breaks and you have to buy another. Thats why i reccomend you buy two or more of different strings, so that with tricks that put heavy strain on the string, you can use one and save the other.

in finland string costs about 0.40€/m (=1 R$) in juggling store.

if you buy lot its of course cheaper- 100m costs about 15-20 €..

I've had a similar attitude, but not the same situation...

I was diaboloing down in my condo's front yard, some fat lady comes up with a dog, says to it "Come on, boy, we have to go!" and starts pacing back and forth herself and lingers where I am until it got cold...

Not unlike the money incident, but I sort of know how you feel...it's annoying when you could say something but you just can't because you don't want to hurt their feelings.  And it feels sort of nice when they watch you, but for you, I guess, Niark, it stops as soon as they give you coins in the intention that you didn't want them to have.
If you juggle and you know it, do [insert complex siteswap notation].
