Actual Telephone Conversations Heard at My House #15

*RING*

ME:  Hello?

AC SERVICES LACKEY:
  Hi, is this Juice?

ME:  This is.

AC SERVICES LACKEY:  Good afternoon. My name is Michael.  I’m with A.C. Services calling on behalf of the U.S. Armed Forces Association Fund.

ME:  (CHEERFULLY ANTICIPATING THE MEAL AHEAD OF ME)  Ohhh, sure!

AC SERVICES LACKEY:  I see that we got your donation to the fund last year and so if I…

ME:  Um, actually, no you don’t.

AC SERVICES LACKEY:  I’m sorry?

ME:  You don’t see a donation made by me last year.

AC SERVICES LACKEY:  Well, actually I do.  It was $20 from Juice Aaron.

ME:  Nope.  I made no $20 donation last year.

AC SERVICES LACKEY:  Heh heh, well, maybe somebody got a hold of your checkbook then.

ME:  No, that didn’t happen either.  No, I made a $20 donation TWO years ago.  But that was back before I learned how very very little money actually gets to any of the charities represented by AC Services.  Which is why we now have a hard and fast rule in this household to never donate any money to AC Services charities under any set of circumstances.

AC SERVICES LACKEY:  Thank you for your time, Juice.  You have a nice day.

ME:  You too.
