As for messing with pollsters, after awhile they get used to it. What they're looking for is creativity. Do with that what you will. :P
I get pnone calls all the time from the people who provide my internet service.
They keep trying to get me to try their 'free' cable subscription & home phone service c/w long distance savings & I can 'bundle ' it all together to save EVEN MORE !
So I keep telling them...
Sir/madam if I'm paying 50 bucks for internet & its a hundred dollars for the bundle .... isn't that paying more ?
They usually respond with the same tired BS, yes its more than 50 bucks, but if you were to pay for all 4 services seperately it would be way more than 100 dollars .....
Which leads me to reply on how you called me & told me YOU CAN SAVE ME MONEY on my internet bill & what you are trying to do is DOUBLE MY Cost ! SO if you are really trying to save me money and I can have 4 services for 100 dollars, which is 25 bucks a service .... I will happily take a reduction in my internet service to 25 dollars please ~;)
Seeing as they don't have the authority or sense of humour to do anything even remotely like actually SAVE ME 1 red cent ! ! !they usually tell me to fuck off in their very nice language -"well sir if you have any problems with your internet service or would like to make any changes in the future please don't hesitate Blah , blah , blah , blah !
My other favorite line when I get a call for cable or a satelite service fro free for 3 months &/or low introductory rate is , why can't the rate stay that way ?
Why does it have to go up ?
Can't you instead lower it if I decide to keep it , after the introductory period .... after all you've spent money on a tech to come & install it.
You've had to buy the equipment you put in place.
IF I keep using it, there is no futher cost to you & so you make your money back & start making a profit the longer I keep using your service .
I also like to use,
Excuse me, but you want me to pay you to put programing into my home, that is filled with commercials that you are paid by advertisers to carry to viewers ..... & then want to be paid again by me to watch it !
Do you believe I am stupid ?
Why would I pay to get a movie or TV show loaded with interuptions for things like Tampons that as a male I will never need or even want to learn about ?!?
That has already been paid for to be shown ???
Ahhh, good clean fun ~:)
