“Hello is Anne there”
Me: what? I think you have the wrong number.
Caller: oh, okay well maybe you can help me then.
Me: doubt it
Caller: we are calling on behalf of the disabled veterans
Me: which ones?
Caller: Our national center is out of Colorado.
Me: Seems legit then, since you are calling me from a Pennsylvania number.
Caller: Can we count on you for a donation of $20?
Me: how much did you give?
Caller: I don’t understand the question.
Me: if you want me to donate $20, how much did you donate?
Caller: We can take your credit card over the phone if you want to donate.
Caller: Is the card under your name “Anne”
Me: Yeah, that’s right.
Caller: You don’t sound like an Anne to me.
Me: Have I questioned your life choices?
Caller: I don’t think you’re going to help us, and you wasted my time.
I told him up front I doubt I could help him…I don’t understand why he got pissy with me.
