04:18 pm - Spatch's Laws of Public Venues
Given any number of people mulling about in a public space, such as a subway entryway, Common or other such touristy area, the following rules apply:
1. Two or more people hanging around wearing the same type of shirt are up to no good, and
2. People with clipboards have ulterior motives, so consequently
3. People with clipboards who are wearing the same type of shirt are just out to get you.
These are IRREFUTABLE TRUTHS OF LIFE, people. This TRANSCENDS mere cynicism. Believe it!

Obviously you've never been at a BART station before a Giants or A's game... ;)

Ugh. I've been (successfully) avoiding them for days.

EEEEEEEEK indeed. So far I've been lucky enough not to encounter them directly on the T, but I seem to be constantly finding (and throwing out) their literature that has been left on trains or in stations.

Oy. I like Mass Pirg, even give money to them, but still try to avoid them whenever I see them in Davis Square or in a T station.

I worked for Mass Pirg for a couple weeks. It was the only paying job I ever had that actually lost me money.... And it was stressful to boot.

On the other hand, I bet walking around carrying a clipboard and a pencil is a great way to get people to leave you alone.
