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.)

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.”
