Operators are standing by…

On Friday night, some co-workers and I answered the phones for the local PBS station fund raising drive.  They ask local organizations to staff the phones in exchange for a little on-air recognition.  We’ve done it a few times in the past and it’s always a good time.

A few highlights from the evening:

  • Some guy called during the Bill Moyers show and said we were all Communists.  Duly noted.
  • We were talking about the Communist call when our “coach” made a comment about only writing in red pen. I thought she was was making a Commie joke, so I laughed.  She wasn’t.  Apparently we were only allowed to write with red ink on our pledge cards and I was using green ink.  Leave it to me to get in ‘trouble’ at a volunteer gig.  Awesome.
  • Andrew took the last call of the evening.  And had to explain what a DVD player was to the woman.   As everyone else was filing out, he was still trying to explain it to her.  I felt bad for him, but it sure was funny!
Sign on the door.  Clearly this is NOT where we were :)

"Answering calls tonight are representatives from The National Council of the Teachers of English."  Z was not impressed!
