This Will Only Take A Minute!

As soon as the southern voice starts mispronouncing, I ask where
they live and if it's not in Alaska I tell them I only answer
questions for Alaskans employed to do the survey and hang up.
Ketchikan, AK - USA
About: "50 year resident,
answered lots of surveys lately"
This Will Only Take A Minute! By Dave Kiffer - We all like to be
thought of as important.
That's why it is so hard to
turn down a chance to be "surveyed".
We like to believe "our
opinions matter" and that's just what the surveyors tell
In the last five months, I
have been phone surveyed five different times. It's like jury
duty, they say you are randomly selected but - truth is - once
you answer a survey or show up for jury duty - you seem to find
yourself being "selected" again and again. -
