Squeezing Blood From a Turnip

I received a fancy-looking envelope from my medical school a few days ago. Without a clue as to what it would contain, there I opened it to find a letter. A very formal letter. One that proceeded to ask me to donate money to the school.

Are they kidding? It is less than one year after graduation -- graduation from medical school no less, which implies that I am making pennies as my salary -- and they have the nerve to ask for money! However, they did show their generosity by stating that I could spread out donations greater than $25000 across multiple payments.

They couldn't wait a few years before sending me letters to donate. They couldn't even wait one year. And now, because of this one cruel, unsympathetic letter, they shall never receive a dime from me.

My school has asked our class to "donate" money each month for the next 4-5 years for a class scholarship. This would be our class gift. I'm sure they'll also send a lovely envelope as well once we're out regardless of the scholarship.

Like I'm going to do that!

At least they waited until you graduated. At my (public) university we're asked to contribute to the "class gift" when we're still in school and will continue to milk us for money.
