I hear you there, mate!.
I frequently have calls from a fund-raising group looking to raise funds for the Christchurch Westpac Rescue Helicopter Trust, a Charity that I am directly involved with as a Standby Pilot and as a donor, after all, what more can you do?.
I remember Sir Bob Geldof saying that after a while, Donor-Fatigue sets in, there are just so many Charities out there, you could not possibly give to ALL of them!.
And that was in the 80's!!.
But we get calls asking to participate in surveys and other time wasting things.
I hung up on a guy when he wouldn't let me attend a Fire Call.(see you later I said, I'm gone!)
And yes Paul, our Call-Centres are based in India here too.
Ring a PoCo in Wellington, during a Faults call and you get a person in New Delhi!.
