Cold calling, part two

Monday night, I made more library levy calls. (It passed! One of the few bits of good news from the election.)Highlight:
I’ve rattled off the first part of my schpiel and am pausing for breath. The gentleman to whom I am speaking asks, in a deep, portentous voice,

“Do anarchists vote in tomorrow’s election?”

This knocks me entirely out of my pre-written patter and I answer, cheerily,

“Well, if they want to keep the library open, they do!”

He considers this and says, “I will flip a coin. That’s how I decide everything.”
