Today I received a phone call from one of the large politcal parties: Party in Blue Me in Green "Hello, may I speak with Mr. B?" "He is not here, may I take a message?" "Is Mrs. B. in?" "I am Mrs. B." "I am so and so from the __________ party. We are calling to thank you for your past donations and would like to ask of another donation of $_________" (Wondering if husband really gave that amount or the party thinks we will forget and want us to send that amount instead of a lesser amount husband may have given?) "You need to call back and talk to Mr. B." "We need funds so we can (slams oppossing party)" "You need to call back and talk to Mr. B." (Is it possible that fundraising organizations are difficult children also? They don't listen better than our kids.) "We are limiting our calls. "Oh, I am sure we will get lots more calls and mailings!" (Yes, I said exactly that.) Maybe you can make a donation that your husband can increase later?" "No, I don't give to anyone or anything. You have to call back and talk to husband. Good bye." CLICK Now, let's see if political calls from a certain party will be limited? I think it is time to start screening my calls - I hate the rude interruptions into my house begging for money even if it is a cause I support. I would think after all these years this party would have a note in their files, "Do not talk to Mrs. B. She is mean and will give nothing. If you want something, ask Mr. B. who Mrs. B claims is allowed to do whatever he wants with the household income."
