I am not sure how often LW staff check this forum, but obviously it will be easy for them to identify me... The person on the phone when I asked this question had a verbal tone and inflection that led me to believe that he thought this proposition was jokingly unreasonable. He may not have intended to sound like that and granted, I am not accusing him of being like that. It was just my impression. So really, I guess I should just drop it and start looking forward to getting my LW and begin saving for my backup set. The whole conversation just left me wondering if I was an idiot for even asking.
Nah, you aren't an idiot for asking. I suspect you might be good in a sales job. If you never make calls, you won't make sales, right? At least you asked. You were just optimistic that there was a chance they would go for the idea.
Personally, I don't think there was any chance, but then again I don't donate to a lot of charities. I prefer to buy that homeless guy asking me for change some food
Perhaps the person you spoke with is more like myself and was shocked that you asked. You asked, they said no, oh well. Don't let it bother you
