Inspiration Monday: Mortal Water

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Don’t you hate it when someone calls you from a survey group with a deceptively non-partisan name like “National Research,” convinces you they really do need your opinion because you’re not a retired grandparent like most of their respondents, and then asks you a bunch of rather biased questions?

I probably answered most of their questions the same way a retired grandparent would anyway. Bwahahahahahahaaaaaaaa!

  1. No one every surveys me. I have a suspicion that my whole family has been designated an “outlier” and so they avoid us. 😉

    I love “words without borders” but the muse hasn’t stirred yet.

    • Well, usually they hang up politely but quickly when I tell them I’m in marketing. Consumer surveys don’t want answers from people in the industry (or even their relatives), I think for fear of leaking information to their competitors.

      But it doesn’t work with political surveys. Tell me how to get the outlier designation!

  2. Here’s my piece from this week! Words Without Borders was too good to pass up, but at the same time I’m not sure if I did it justice. In any case, enjoy!

    Be well and prosper,
