Adventures in Phone Banking pt.2
This afternoon, I worked a shift at the Measure D phone bank. Our current digs at Egenolf’s law offices are very posh, and the training, provided by our handsome new coordinator, Ben, was as thorough as anyone could want. The people who actually picked up the phone were surprisingly nice. I think I actually persuaded a few. My most memorable call was to a woman named Mildred, whose age was listed as “02.” This turned out to be 102. She told me right away that she was completely deaf, but we had a nice chat anyway.
About half way through the shift, Alex Pujo stopped by and brought us some lemonade. This was greeted with great joy.
So even if you have just an hour to spare, come on down and help us out. It isn’t as hard as you might think.
Where: Egenolf Law Offices, 130 E. Carillo St. (corner of Santa Barbara Street) upstairs.
