« 30 Minutes To Victory! | Main | Rebounding Across The Polls »
I just finished making the calls for the Get On The Phone effort by the Republican Party. When my sister came into town this weekend, I had to juggle the schedule around -- I originally planned to make my calls on Saturday, but that didn't work out.
Now, I have made my living in call centers for almost twenty years, but making these calls makes me a little more nervous than normal. That's been true every time I've volunteered, but every time I've always been glad I did. I get to talk with nice people and let them know we're counting on them, and they almost always react positively.
Tonight was no exception. The GOP assigned me a district in Missouri, where Jim Talent is fighting off a challenge from state auditor Claire McCaskill. All that I needed to do was to remind people that the election was on Tuesday, and the hours of operation for the polls. If no one was home, I left a message, and if the phone number was incorrect, I just talked to whomever answered.
The entire exercise took about 30 minutes, and then I was back visiting with my sister; right now, we're watching Thank You For Smoking and having dinner. It hardly puts a dent into your schedule at all, and it gives you the satisfaction of knowing you have contributed to the effort to keep Congress under Republican management.
