Lately I've had about a billion phone calls from different charities, asking for my money. All of them have been great causes, and I've had to say no to every one of them. It's about to drive me crazy!
I mean, I don't mind getting one call every few months. It gives me time to build up the courage to say 'Sorry, we're just as broke as the next guy' or whatever. I can't give to everyone who asks, it just doesn't work. And I hate being put on the spot to make a decision like that on my own. It's not like I'm the one out there earning money to give away. I spend it to provide for our family, but any 'giving' I like to discuss with Keith. I can't do that when they call in the middle of the day.
What do you do when they call? Do you just hang up? Say sorry, but no? Give them $20? I don't really feel like doing this again. Maybe it's time to get call display....
