Ok, I've been lurking on this board for awhile, but....I *just* got a phone call from a woman selling products made by the blind. Personally, it sounds dangerous to have blind people mixing cleaning chemicals to me, but I didn't say anything. She finshed her speech, and I said, "I'm sorry, but I'm between jobs right now, so I don't have any extra funds right now. I don't want to commit to something that I cannot follow through with." She offered to give me until the end of the year or later to come up with $17.00. I explained again that I didn't want to commit and asked that she call me back after the first of the year.
This is where it gets funny. She said, "If you need extra time, we can wait until January to bill you." I said, "I would really prefer a call back at a later time, thank you." And she said, "Oh, okay, whatever." Her tone completely changed, and she was very sarcastic when she said the last part. I laughed. If the company does call me back, I will explain, politely of course, why I will be unable to contribute.
