Now, months ago, I had another unfortunate encounter with an aggressive and extremely pushy female chugger, for the same charity. That left a pretty sour taste in my mouth, so my impressions of this charity went down even further. I didn't give out my number.
Last night, at just before 9pm, I got a call from the charity again. The guy who phoned me before all those months ago did not cross my name from the records after all. In fact, he blatantly lied, and must have said that I didn't wish to donate last time because it was a bad time. The guy who phoned me up THIS time told me that I'd told them last time that I wished to be contacted at another date, and that he was taking up those instructions.
NOPE. I remained civil and just told him that I did not wish to donate, sorry about that, and I put the phone down.
I just... my God. Never have I hated a charity more than this one. Now, I'm all for charities but this one has left a REALLY sour taste in my mouth.
