33% of Americans willing to talk to telephone pollsters are dumber than a box of hammers.
Turk Turon was visiting last night and he and my roomie were chatting in the living room. The phone rang and, to spare them the interruption, I answered the extension here in VFTP Command Central:
"Hello, I'm from XYZ Polling, Inc., and I'd like to talk to you about politics for a moment. Your answers will be completely confidential, and..."
"Hey, dude, sorry, but I'm on my way out the door."
"Gotta run, sorry!" *click*
As I wandered towards the kitchen (I was only on my way out the office door. To get a Diet Dew.) RobertaX called out "Who was that?"
"Just some nosy person finding out why touchy-feely people always lead cranky misanthropes in telephone polls."
