So, the pledgetime people keep saying stuff like "We're doing great, but we still haven't reached our goal. We're keeping the phones will open until nine o'clock because we don't want you to miss out on the opportunity to support this program -- even if you only listen to it one month out of the year." I want, even just once, for them to say, "So, um, we were planning to be asking for pledges for another hour and a half, but we just reached our goal, and we can't continue asking for donations because that massive donation we just received which enabled us to meet our goal was contingent upon us ceasing to ask for pledges for the remainder of the evening, so, um, we're just gonna put on some Tchaikovsky and, uh, maybe go out for some drinks."
