Went to bed about 9am, got woken up about 2pm by someone calling for a phone survey. I like surveys. I like screwing up their results with my freakiness :) I also like to find out what they're trying to find out.

Credit card companies are obviously trying to figure out how to get people to sign up or switch to their credit card. Given that i've stayed with my one and only credit card for the past ten years, i'm not sure i was of any use to them :) Along with all the normal rewards and perks and stuff, they're considering (if they haven't started already) issuing credit cards with a small "companion card" that fits on your keychain (like some of the gorcery stores do with their card.) Thay're also considering having ATM like security codes for use on the internet.

Now that i've had a decent nap i should try to stay awake and get something usefull done.

I like when they give multiple choice. I try to select an answer not provided in the options. "But that's not among the choices given!" "but that's my answer" "Could you please select the one that *best* describes" whatever? "NO, I gave you my answer. None of the ones you provided are applicable to me". ::EG::

But that defeats the point! How can i corrupt their database if i don't work with them to make my data acceptable? :)

Not sure what they'll make of my data, since it seems to imply that their entire marketing scheme is doomed. I'm not interested in percentage back or other gimicks, i have only one credit card, and have had the same one for the past ten years. Lucky for them i guess that i'm probably in the minority, but it's nice to skew the graph as much as possible :)
