When I call Sparky, I occasionally get her voice mail. Instead of leaving the run-of-the-mill message, I like to liven it up.
Here’s my most recent message: (insert Southern accent)
“Hi-ah, this is Connie calling from the Tennessee RNC. How y’all doing today? We noticed you hadn’t renewed your membership; hell, we don’t even know if you’re still a Republican. Most of all, we see you haven’t donated in…well, ever. Please call us back, because we really count on your support…and your money. Call us at 987-555-5592. Or stop by the office, have a glass of sweet tea and chat. Thank yew!.
Sparky’s son and husband are used to this, fortunately.
