Survey 2010 ?
My phone rang this morning. I can tell when it's a long distance phone call because it will double-ring. When I answered it there was a recorded message telling me about Survey 2010. The first question was: Do you own a small dog?
Yes! We own a small dog. She is a 4 year old Mini Pinscher we rescued from the Nebraska Humane Society. Her name is Sushi. What else do you need to know?
I hung up before the rest of the message could be played. That's normally my routine when I see that it's a telemarketing call. I listen and then I hang up. Sometimes I don't even listen. If I can tell it's going to be a marketing call before I pick up the phone, I will answer and then hang up.
I wonder why they want to know if we have a small dog?
