just opened the door to 3 people asking me to give them my bank details for a regular donation to RSPCA! One of them looked like somebody out of the Sopranos!! - surely it can be a bit intimidating to some people?
yes, 2 in bibs and one dodgy looking bloke with dark glasses and a long black coat lurking in the background!
they said they'd had a lot of support from my neighbours (expect me to fall for that line?!) and did I have pets - I said no, so one of them asked if I'd ever had pets, and I lied and said only a goldfish so he asked what the goldfish's name was! FFS GO AWAY. And it's always when I'm cooking the DCs' dinner
No, no, three would be welcome here because I have three dogs.
Work it out...there are three R$PCA money-scroungers, right? That equals one R$PCA money-scrounger per dog to "greet".
And means that I wouldn't have to feed the dogs tonight. <<evil cackle>>
Folk need to know that the R$PCA already has £119 MILLION in the bank yet a year or so ago decided that they "couldn't afford" to take in any more dogs from the public, so leaving them to be taken in by already over-exhausted, over-burdened independent rescues who themselves get little or no public support and often have no charity tax breaks.
I knew about their bank balance dogs and the way they treat dogs and so i cancelled it. They rang me to ask why and so I told them and the lad on the phone didn't know what to say (he probably didn't even know)
DogsBestFriend is that youvalhalla . Whoever you are thanks. I've had a regular dd set up for the RSPCA for years. They really piss me off with their constant phone calls asking me to up the amount. I will now be cancelling and giving the money to a local animal shelter.
