I got a call last night

"Is this Mister Michael Whelpley?"

Who calls me Mister?  Is it a telemarketer?  Wait, that's a 609 area code; must be Princeton.

"Yes, it is indeed."

"My name is  ___, and I'm a freshman at Princeton University, and I'm calling to - "

"Oh yes, I hope you're making good use of my donation to the Annual Giving Campaign from last year."

I gave them 22 cents.  He knows this, as the cold-callers have a list of your donations over the years.

"Umm, yes, and -"

"- and I'll be quite happy to donate less than a dollar to Princeton this year.  Have a wonderful evening, sir."

"Uh, you too."

For some reason, Wellesley has never, ever called me for money. I'm not sure that they even call my parents. Which is good, because I'm easily guilt-tripped.

They kept calling Beth, though, and finally she was like "LOOK, JUST BECAUSE I HAVE A JOB AT APPLE DOES NOT MEAN I AM NOT PAYING OFF YOUR GODDAMN STUDENT LOANS." Then they stopped.
