A persistent young girl selling flowers has made a stir on social media after she was spotted clinging on to passersby who refused to buy from her.
The pictures show the determined girl trying her utmost to prevent a man walking down the street from leaving without buying some flowers. She is willing to put her body on the line as she gets dragged across the floor in her quest to hawk flowers.
Pictures of this girl have gone viral on Weibo under the hashtag “Don’t think of leaving if you don’t buy the flowers.” Although some did sympathize with the girl’s situation, most netizens have denounced the girl’s techniques and shared similar experiences.
“Being a flower seller isn’t easy, we should be more compassionate and buy one,” wrote @我命已定盘.
“When I was in Nanjing, a little girl approached us to sell flowers; after, I staunchly refused her, she spat on me and ran away,” wrote @暖暖暖暖sun.
“The girl should save some dignity for herself.” wrote @M_sir98.
