CAN YOU SPARE 5 MINUTES FOR A SURVEY?



(A reworked post from October 2012)



This was ACTUALLY posted very briefly on the McDonnell Douglas website by an employee there who obviously had a sense of humor. The company, of course, does not (have a sense of humor) and made the web department take it down immediately.

  1. In a recent poll about our preferred leaders of the two major political parties here 'don't know' and 'none of the above' had a HUGE majority.
    Which struck me as entirely appropriate. Those surveyed had been honest.

  2. My favorite in the survey for why bought the plane "Negative experience opposing one in combat"

  3. That survey is very funny....I hate those things. I recently called AT&T about a message I got on my phone. It was cleared up, no problem. Then I got the notice about a short survey, and the questions just kept popping up one after another when I answered them.

  4. I avoid all surveys rather rudely but I enjoyed the McDonnell Douglas one and thought it funny. It seems to typify most of the useless ones out there.

  5. Love that plane questionnaire. A crazed primitive tribal person hears loud noise and looks up, thinks I gotta get me one of those, might come in handy for scaring the tribe in the hills.
    I don't like surveys much, the questions don't seem relevant to me most of the time.

    1. There ARE questions relevant to them, such as your Social Security Number & your yearly income!!

  6. I hate surveys, as you might recall from one of my recent posts.

  7. I bought the F-16. It's been my preferred plane for quite some time.

    Love,
