Solicitor: can you pledge $350
Me: so sorry not this year, we have some medical bills
Solicitor: oh sorry to hear that? what happened
Me: (really they would ask? ok fine) my daughter lost her eye.
(this is where I honestly thought he would say, "so sorry to hear that, we will check back with you next year". nope
Solicitor: DUDE! my cousin shot my other cousin in the eye with a crossbow. It popped the thing like a beach ball. It was the coolest and grossest thing I've ever seen.
Solicitor: ( realizing that we are probably being recorded) Ma'am I'm sorry to hear about that unfortunate incident. Would you be able to donate $20?
I will admit i have laughed about it all morning. I have heard alot of eye stories in the last couple of months and I think this one is my favorite!
