9. They believe I'm a 60 y-old Republican man
They called the previous holder of my phone number with a computer-voice generated poll. So...I did my civic duty. At the end they asked if I'd like to be called regularly, you betcha I do!

I've been called 4 times in the past 6 months, all automated and each time I push the buttons to be a 60ish male, with a substantial income who *is* somewhat worried about some garden-variety conservative issues but who has gotten increasingly *dismayed* over the war, the economy and, frankly, on call #3 I had to give the President* the lowest rating and now, unfortunately, he's getting the lowest rating in *everything*-----oh well, I do have to tell the truth don't I? :evilgrin:

(my husband finds this whole polling business highly entertaining)
