you shouldnt be ashamed of saying no, no one is forcing you to pay them.
Now they have your personal info because you didn't pay with cash. It's only a matter of time before they're knocking at your door, asking for a kidney.
Lots of charities out-source their marketing, it means lots of generous people get harassed by people who only care about meeting targets. It's sad they are made to feel bad because they don't have money and time for it all and it really puts me off donating to the big charities.
My old house phone got calls practically everyday, asking my mom to donate blood. I finally had enough and they caught me in a bad mood, I (a usually quiet, reserved little girl) told them to never call again. Not one more call after that day. Note: I know they were just doing their job and I didn't mean to yell at them, but it was ridiculous.
"Oops. I think I forgot it at home." And then you walk away from them. Fast.
A similar situation like that happened to me, only they were selling perfume. They got me right befoee I went into the grocery store and I told them I wouldn't have enough money for it after I was done shopping. The point is, don't ever feel pressured in a situation like that. You never know what they might do with your credit card information!
