[quote:SwampWitch:MV8xNDM3NjE1XzIzODM3MzQ5X0REQjQ0OTQ=] How odd... Have you told her flat out that you don't want to/will not participate in the survey? I say go ahead & call the cops, if she comes back, and don't explain in detail on the phone when you do. Don't say 'There's a creepy census worker bugging me' Just say 'there's a total stranger harassing me at my home, she won't leave altho I've told her repeatedly to go! I don't know her, and I feel [i]very[/i] threatened!' Give your address, then hang up. If 911 calls back (they likely will) do not answer it. A car will be at your drive within moments. Turn the ringer down after you call 911 so you can honestly say "Oh sorry - ringer was off!" when they complain about calling you back & you not answering. Fight fire with fire...that bitch has no right to infringe on your peaceful existence. Even the gov't wouldn't say that she has. She's just playin' you. Don't let her get away with it again. Good luck. :hf: [/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 :)
