PRICELESS !!!:tounge::cool2: [/quote] Yes, I wish they would just mail them instead of showing up at my door. I told my husband I want to put a gate up across the front of our place with "No Tresspassing" signs. [/quote] I have a gate. The gate has a sign that says "If you can read this, our snipers can drop you". We don't get bothered. [/quote] LOL, I would do that but I try to keep a low profile (although my Ron Paul sign is still prominently displayed on my front deck). "No Tresspassing" will have to suffice. I almost grabbed the lady's arm to turn her around and escort her out. I'd better just stay in the house next time and see how that goes. [/quote]
Ugh - the "census" lady came by today and tried to get me to take the American Community Survey.
I told her that I already answered the census (I put "2" and mailed it back; that's probably why they are here) and was not interested in any more surveys and closed the door. As I was closing the door she was lying that this was not the census, it was a "survey from the House of Representatives". I said "No, thanks. I'm all set."
She put a bunch of papers in my door. One identified the survey as the American Community Survey, which I suspected. Another paper, highlighted with pink, contained the "U S Census Code - Title 13 -- Ch 7 Offenses and Penalties" and all of that intimidating mumbo-jumbo basically saying that it is against the law not to answer the census (I already did; she admitted this wasn't the census) and another small paper that says she is "obliged to return until contact is made". She already made contact, duh, but I get the feeling that she is going to be bugging me!!!
So they are lying and intimidating people into filling out these forms! Definitely not filling out any forms for these data-mining dirtbags.
So, tell me GLPers how did you get rid of them? Are they still bugging you? Any advice?
Thanks, in advance :)
