    I always get sucked in, I feel bad for the poor shlub on the other end of the phone, and I convince myself that maybe my opinion matters :facepalm:

    So tonight I get roped into a radio survey. It starts off simple enough, what stations do I listen to in the car, in the AM, at work. Do I recognize certain "on air" personalities? That kind of stuff. Then it gets crazy, he starts playing me all different genres of music and asking questions :wtf: At this point, all I want to do is hang up, but I imagine the guy has some kind of quota to maintain, and I don't want to be the one who gets him fired. :jj:

    Twenty minutes I'll never get back

    Never. I hate all solicitation calls. If the caller ID shows a telemarketer or sales call, my dad answers in a real low, gruff voice and says "It's done, but there's blood everywhere", and then hangs up.:jj:

    They never call back. :coffee:

    I used to screw with them a lot. Now I just say really disgusting things. Never goes over well, but hey, they called me.

    I remember once a company offered a product to my dad, this is how he answered

    "Hello"
    "How are you sir?"
    "I was doing well before this phone call"

    My job always makes you take a survey after every online course to get credit for taking it. :sostupid:

    Was this course easy to navigate?

    Will you perform your job better because of this course.

    No I am better than this course you can go fuck yourself and your online courses faggit.

    No, I even lie to the survey people outside of the grocery store who ask me if I'm a registered voter. :usofa:

    i have a land line with the ringer turned off. i hate being bothered by surveys, politicians, salespeople etc.
    every month, i clear out the messages without listening to them.

    if you don't have my cell number, i don't care what you want.
