When the woman on the phone stated the name of her charity, I said, “I’d like to help but since Barack Obama just got re-elected, I have no money and I won’t have any extra money for charity for at least the next 5-10 years.”
She said, “That has nothing to do with it,” quite disgustedly.
I said, “It has everything to do with it! Thank you for re-electing Obama.”
The call ended at that point. I think I’ve just found a sure fire way to say no to charities that is 100% truthful.
Fuck you, Obama.
