I get a stupid amount of survey calls and telemarketing calls. A stupid amount.
But tonight I got my first every automated survey. To paraphrase...
"This is an automated political survey, it will take about 1 minute,
If the election was tomorrow who would you give you party vote to?
press 1 for Labour
press 2 for National"
Actually I preferred it to speaking to a real person. I didn't have to sit through the painful introductions and thank yous
"Hello, my name is blah blah blah, I represent blah blah, we are doing a survey on blah, this call may be recorded for blah.
Thanks for all your blah, I hope you have a blah evening, we appreciate you blah."
