It’s here at long, long last! The wedding of the century. Forget those royals, forget that person on TV with a skating rink on her finger: After months of sparring, Men’s Wearhouse is buying Jos. A.

Fortunately for all of us, Lifehacker guest poster Erica Elson works as a fundraising caller for an arts organization, and gave some tips that will help banish fundraising calls from your life, or at least make sure that you get fewer of them.
Don’t hang up.
