Yanks But No Thanks

(I am employed as a phonathon caller to raise money for my university. We call alumni and request donations.)

Me: “Hi, can I speak to Mr. [Alumnus]?”

Alumnus: “This is he.”

Me: “Oh, good evening. This is [My Name], calling from Clemson University. How are you?”

Alumnus: “You sound too much like a Yankee to be calling from Clemson.” *hangs up*
