Me: opens door
Grey haired lady at door: "Hi. I'm canvasing for the Canadian Cancer Society and am collecting donations."
Me: "Oh, how wonderful, the Cancer Society has really helped me. I'm sorry but I don't have any money to donate."
Lady: "Well I can come back later, even at the end of the month."
Me: "I'm really sorry but I don't have anything."
*long painful awkward silence*
Me: "I'm actually just dealing with cancer right now and recovering from everything..."
*more awkward silence*
Me: awkwardly begins stumbling about how the Cancer Society has benefited me and how I'm so grateful...
*lady starts backing away from door and down the stairs*
Lady turns her back on me and leaves.
