Today I got my first fundraising donation call in a very long time.
That in itself is not the annoying.
The caller first asked for "MR. deGallo". He's not here I say, can I take a message?
"Is this MRS. deGallo?" Yeeeesss......
Sure, I'm totally going to use my credit card to make a donation over the phone....Riiiiight. Ok, but even this is not the annoyance.
Throughout the rest of the call, the "operator" kept referring to me as "MISS. deGallo".
I kept wanting to ask him if he wanted me to get my daughter, who I'm sure would be most unwilling to part with the $4.00 in her wallet as she is saving up to go to
I do realize that it is not uncommon to no longer make the distinction between Mrs. and Miss., but COME ON!!!!
I guess I'm just a codgerty old fart.
