People who hand out ads

When we walk on the streets in Tokyo, we often see people who hand out ads: for example, small packed Kleenex with ads, papered fan with printed ads, coupon ticket and more.

If you want Kleenex while staying in Tokyo, don't go to supermarkets! Go to streets, instead!!

I feel so sorry for those people -- especially in this heat, handing out little scraps of paper (or, if we're lucky, tissue and fans), is a thankless, forsaken kind of job.

I used to correct (for use, of course) tissue from those people, never refuse. You save quite lot's of money in this way instead of buy them in supermarket.
I haven't seen those in NZ.

Ha! Very interesting indeed. Here in Jamaica they just put the ads on your car windscreen.

I wish they handed us Kleenex here! Instead, they usually just give away paper leaflets or cards. However, sometimes, if we are very lucky, they hand out packets of mints, paper fans, balloons, bookmarks or other items - sometimes samples of food.

The other day I was fortunate enough to come across people near the Grand Central handing out cold bottles of a new variety of Pepsi. A few blocks away I ran into a girl giving away miniature cups of soup and, on the next street, others distributing small candy bars. A free lunch!
