Guilt Pylon

guiltpylon

Guilt Pylon | Slang/Phenomenon |  Any person with a clipboard who asks, “Do you have a minute for [insert name of cause or charity]?” while you are minding your own business on the sidewalk. They are most commonly found on Commercial Drive and in Kitsilano, the two Vancouver neighbourhoods currently breeding sympathetic youth. An unkind slur.

Usage: “Man, I was on The Drive this afternoon and it was like walking a slalom course through a forest of guilt pylons!”explore-the-lexicon
