I hate surveys. I hate filling them out. I hate that at the end of them they often say, “If you are truly my bestest best friend you will fill this out before such & such a date & time and return it to the person who sent it to you.” To be honest….I rarely read forwarded spam and I rarely read these e-mails or Myspace bulletins. So if I don’t reply, don’t be offended.
Ok, Ok, so I am venting. I feel like venting!
But I do want to ask and I do want to know….who writes these surveys? And I would like to talk to someone who has written one of these very insane surveys that I only fill out when I am completely bored and have nothing better to do (which rarely happens)……
If you write surveys, I want to ask you……
How do you come up with such trivial questions?
Do you have any hobbies? (Real Hobbies! Writing Surveys doesn’t count!)
Do you think someone is going to actually fill your surveys out? (I mean if you aren’t paying them money. Because I fill out surveys online that I am paid for all the time, but I have this weird aversion to filling out silly & very personal surveys that the whole world can read for free! Yeah, Yeah, I know people DO fill them out…..but aren’t you surprised every time they do.)
Do you actually fill these surveys out yourself? Or do you just like being snoopy by writing them?
Why in the world do you write at the end “If you are my bestest friend you will fill out and respond to this survey within 3 days”? (Don’t you think even bestest friends have something better to do with their time?! Perhaps they can be a REALLY good friend and CALL their friend rather than taking huge amounts of time out of their schedule to fill a survey out! I know, I know, you are simply writing these silly things at the end in order to encourage gullible, busy people like me to actually fill the silly things out and return them! I get it! I really do! But isn’t it rather manipulative of you?! I mean, if you had a good survey don’t you think people would want to fill it out?! But because it is rather inane you have to put these silly words at the end. I understand, really truly I do.)
And Last, BUT NOT LEAST………
Do you have a life??????
If you are my bestest friend….. (cross that out!!! )
If you agree with me and would also like to ask survey writers some of the same questions, just drop me a note & let me know what you think of this bulletin. And…..if you want to do 14 somersaults, stand on your head and twirl backwards 15 times you are welcome to! (Jessie,a friend who is prone to such odd behaviors, I know you will!)
