I was sitting at the table, eating my yogurt, minding my own business when the phone rang.
It was an automated survey.
Question: Do you own a small dog?
I said no.
THAT WAS THE ENTIRE SURVEY?
What the hell kind of business could require an anonymous automated telephone survey where the sole question is “Do you own a small dog?”
Are the politicians planning a smear campaign claiming that one of the candidates hates small dogs? Do they have a picture of a senator kicking a chihuahua? Or am I totally off. Maybe there were more questions if you said yes to the first query.
Maybe Alex Trebek was punking me.
I don’t know the answer, but I do know this:
1) I am going to stop answering my phone.
2) This crap is going to bother me for months.
