Speaking of unwanted calls, how about those so-called police calls?

"Hello, I am calling on behalf of your local police force. Would you like to donate to the retired policemen's and the police widows' fund?" This said by a man who sounds as though he "eats raw meat" as a friend used to say.


At least now they have to disclose that they are not associated with the police but that a portion of the money will go to police retirement fund or something. I've always been intimidated by the men who call (never had a woman call) and at first wondered if not ageeing to donate would mean some kind of retaliation. Now that I realize it is just a company making money I explain that I send donations directly to the local police funds. I've also hesitated to ask to be taken off their calling list- I was that intimidated- but I have since they disclose who they really are. Still get the calls, though.
