Is it just me or...

...have the charity drive people of this country lost their ever-lovin' minds?? I just hung up on the most unbelievable phone call... for the second time this week.

The phone rings, I pick it up, say hello, and it's a recording. Lovely. Bad enough I get interrupted by a recording, right? But wait... it gets better. So this recorded dude tells me what group he's with - in this case, the Committee for Missing Children or some such - and then has the balls, the unmitigated gall to tell me to "please hold ... blah, blah, blah." Wait a minute! You called me! And now I'm supposed to hold?? I didn't give said recording the time to utter another word as I politely hung up my telephone.

What the hell is wrong with people?? You call
my house, disturb my valuable time, only to have some electronic non-entity tell me to hold while he/it goes about doing whatever it is he/it does?? Are you people crazy?? How's that working for ya? Getting all kinds of positive response and generous donations, are ya?

I don't think so! Grrrrrrrrrr... take my name off your list, morons!
