About 10 days ago one of the levers on our toaster broke. I found and ordered a replacement part on-line. It arrived and is installed.
This morning I received an email from the vendor with a link to a survey. They wanted to know how the repair went, how it turned out and if I was satisfied. I wrote a lengthy paragraph explaining the study and preparation needed, the complexity of the operation, and the anxiety experienced while actually doing the repair. Of course, the truth is a monkey could have installed the new lever in 5 seconds.
Anyhow, it made me laugh. Talk about TMI!
I've never spoofed on a survey, but I've had my fun with telemarketers. After incessant calls from someone claiming the warranty was about to run out on my vehicle, I finally pressed 1 to talk to a real person. In my best backward @$$ redneck accent I convinced her that my only vehicle was a '72 Pinto with 300,000 miles on it and was very interested in getting some warranty coverage on it. She politely declined. I do believe I had her going, though. One of my favorite things to do with them is tell them that I am busy, but if they give me their home number, I'll call them back. They will tell me that it is against policy to give out their home number, and I will say "Why? You have mine. I want to call you at some inopportune time and interrupt whatever you are doing." They usually hang up.
