A charity navigator has criticised her fellow navigators for using the phrase “charity is a privilege”.
In an exclusive interview with News24, Charity Navigator Chloe Riddell said she was “really angry” when she heard the phrase used by her fellow Navigators on the Lincoln navigation team.
Ms Riddoll said she heard it from one of her fellow navigation navigators, who was also working at the Lincoln navigator training facility.
“I was really angry,” she said.
“She said ‘what the f**k are you doing?'”
Chloe Riddells new Lincoln navigators use the phrase ‘charity’ for their own benefitThe Navigators have been asked by Lincoln to remove the phrase from their uniforms and use the word “charm” instead.
Chloe said she and her colleagues were just trying to help people.
“It was just the most common phrase we used,” she explained.
“We were trying to make people feel better about what we did.”
Chloe and her fellow Navigation Navigators are not the only Navigators to use the term “charming” as a compliment.
In the past two years, the term has been used by some Navigators who work for a charity, including former navigation instructor Lorna Wilson and former Navigator Lisa Mok, who worked with Lincoln Navigation to help the company’s students.
The phrase “Charm” has been part of Lincoln’s vocabulary since its founding in 2008.
The Navigation Navigator Association (NNA) said that the phrase was not used by Navigation Navis before it was created.
“Charm is a compliment,” a spokesperson said.
“The phrase ‘Charm’ is a term of affection that has been found to be more accurate than the more negative ‘nice’ phrase ‘nice job’.”
