    Just got one and instead of your usual donation request they were looking for a subscription to a magazine and part of the proceeds would go to their cause.
    What's the easy way to get out of it ?
    Ask for a gun mag.

    We get them actually knocking on our doors too in Key West. I've gotten to the point where I just have fun with them. The Cencus was the worst when in Key West. They were asking all sorts of weird things and even illegal things. The guy asked my what my sexual preference is. I told him I like to be on top. I don't think that was what he meant.

    Living in Key West AKA "Key Weird" I wouldn't want to suggest I go to bed with a farm animal. They might think I'm serious.

    Lol. You aren't kidding. It's the only place I've been to where I saw a mouse(or was it a bird) riding a cat riding a dog walking down the street. I can't remember clearly likely due to doing the duval crawl. Lol

    If you really want to see the freaks come down for Fantasy Fest. Well worth going once or twice but I've owned property here for over 25 years and owned 3 restaurants/bars just off Duval Street so I avoid it now. One visit to Fantasy Fest and you'll see why clothes designers make millions. 99.9% of the people in the world look better dressed. Those who have a body for Playboy are making a lot of money in Playboy. The rest are naked in public at Fantasy Fest. Is it too much to ask for a woman who outweighs my automobile to keep her clothes on? Is it too much to ask the 75 year old couple to not engage in sexual acts on the sidewalk?

    Here is a picture of my 19 year old (18 at the time) daughter with my best friend last year.

    Nowadays, charities and fundraisers (groups that solicit funds on behalf of organizations) use the phone, face-to-face contact, email, the internet (including social networking sites), and mobile devices to solicit and obtain donations. Naturally, scammers use these same methods to take advantage of your goodwill. Actually, I donate generously to any number of social, cultural, medical and political causes, but I NEVER respond to telephone solicitations from any source, for any reason. Pushy telephone campaigns are more likely to lose my contribution than to secure it.

    Explain that you're very interested but, you are in prison right now. Ask the telemarketer for his own personal number. Explain that you'll call him/her back tomorrow night around 11PM.

    I listen to their spiel then, I usually reverse the conversation trying to sell them snow tires, rototiller parts etc. They usually hang up on me. I think I get a mark by my name after that on their end...they never call back...
