Just because they are doing it for a good cause, doesn't mean they aren't telemarketers

9:20am. The house phone rings. I get up from my Moot Court work and answer.

Me: Good Morning?
Them: Hi, this is Cindy from Lifesource Blood Services, is Roommate there? [they call twice a week asking for him]
Me: No, he's not here right now [My roommate is sitting on the couch], may I take a message?
Them: Well, our blood supplies are extremely low right now, would you like to donate?
Me: I was just diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia.
Them: [Pause] Uhh...I hope you feel better
Me: Thank you. [I hang up]
Roommate: Lifesource?
Me: Yep
Roommate: They're never going to call here again
Me: That's the hope
