Stop Being Nasty UK
A new charity has been launched to combat 'nastiness' in the UK. Stop Being Nasty UK has been set up to raise awareness of unpleasant behaviour, abusive language and derisive comments that permeate many areas of life in the UK. Their mission is to tackle the issues head on with a series of hard hitting posters and lapel badges.
The charity's founder, Lucinda Pigface-Trollop, explained how the organisation came about. "I once went into a shop with my friends and the lady who worked there was absolutely beastly," she told us. "She really was horrid and my friends and I were only looking around and chatting amongst ourselves. I mean, I know some people have to work for a living and I'm sure that it's really quite awful, but there's no need to take it out on others, is there?"
Lucinda once worked for two weekends in the farm shop on her father's estate, and she knows just how easy it is for high pressure situations to trigger aggressive behaviour. So when she was looking around for something to do after leaving university, this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
"Daddy said that I had to either settle down and raise some children or jolly well find myself a vocation," Lucinda explained. "That's when I had the brainwave to start this charity. It's a brilliant wheeze. The local authority has given me absolutely tons of money, because apparently it means they can tick a box or something. And I don't even have to deliver any proper results. 'Soft outcomes', they call it. As long as I say I'm 'raising awareness', they just keep giving me more cash. It's easy; it makes me wonder why everyone isn't doing it."
