Open request to the designers
Of automatic telephone surveys everywhere:
STOP FREAKIN’ LYING!!!
“This survey will only take up four minutes of your time.”
On what planet?
Whose definition of “minutes” are you using?
It isn’t the same as mine, that’s for sure!
That thing couldn’t take “only four minutes”
Unless you said “No, I’m not registered to vote.”
Rather, pressed #1 when it told you to,
In order to indicate that no, you’re not a voter.
Total waste of time, too.
All they had to ask was
“Are you an idiot?”
And then they’d know how I was going to answer,
As only an idiot would say they approved.
That’s not what gets me, though.
It’s the “only four minutes” malarkey,
As I had hastened to answer the phone,
Half-way through changing clothes.
“Only four minutes” my fat, naked ass!
It’s too cold in my house for this crap.
I need to learn to just hang up the phone.
(At least I got a post out of it…)
