I unfolded the Sunday paper and pulled out the inserts — gotta check those coupons! An unusual looking ad drifted off the pile onto the floor. Curious, I picked it up. It was an advertisement for the Salvation Army thrift store. To lure new customers, they’re raffleing off two cars and offering a crack at the “treasure chest” of prizes just for walking through the door. Since when does the Salvation Army store advertise?? Apparently since now.
Monday morning, as I was feeding my pets, the phone rang. “Hello…” silence. “Hello!…”
“Hello, this is Major Davis of the Salvation Army inviting you to customer appreciation day at our store on 426 W Jones Ave. …”
I hung up. Since when does the Salvation Army make automated phone calls to advertise their thrift store? Since now, I guess.
What will be next?
