I usually don't get on my soap box about politics, BUT! I just got an automated call for a survey. I never, ever do those, but was curious. I was asked three questions and afterward I would be connected to a service representative to get information on receiving a FREE trip to the Bahamas.WHAT?
The questions were: #1 How would I rate the Democratic party on their handling of the debt crisis? #2 How would I rate the Republican party on their handling of the debt crisis? #3 How would I rate the president on his handling of the debt crisis? Of course, I rated them all as low as I could go!
Then I was connected to a foreign person whose English was only slightly better than my cat's. She gave her one-line spiel about the cruise/trip to the Bahamas and asked "Now, isn't that exciting?" NO. I asked her why I should be excited about giving such low ratings for a government who is not listening to me and why on earth would I want to go to the Bahamas? I need to spend my money here at home! Then I hung up!
Didn't accomplish a thing but made me feel a little better to yell into the phone! LORD, GIVE ME PATIENCE...but I want it right now. Amen

I usually don't even hang on long enough to hear what they say, but something caught my curious ear...LOL I think it was the "political" aspect...I'm always saying "nobody asked me what I think"...: )
