How did I earn 20 dollars.
About 6 months ago, on a Sunday afternoon I was weeding the front garden and this young guy comes to the door and says would I mind answering a few questions in a survey. I said yes, mainly because
I had the time,
I felt sorry for him as he said most of the people were not at home,
and mainly because I hate it when the newspapers report.... something that they say everyone likes.... and I haven't even been asked.
That was my downfall....... 1hour 10 mins, and a cold drink later we had just finished it, but I still had a written survey to complete, plus another one for during the week on my TV watching.
I then had to post this, and I could redeem "a gift" for doing the survey. I chose a 6 month subscription to a Gardening Magazine.
One of the questions was................ would I be willing to participate in future surveys. oh why not, in for a penny in for a pound.
I completed another on the internet. Again a very long one, but didn't get rewarded for this one. :o(
Then last week I received a phone call. Would I be willing to participate in a survey, I needed to watch a
programme of their choice on the TV and then they would phone me the next day and ask me some questions.
My programme to watch was SBS World News. ( they didn't seem to have Dr. Who or Torchwood or Red Dwarf listed)
So last night tea was preared early, and I sat down to intently watch the news for one hour.
Just five minutes ago I had the phone call, answered some questions and hey
TWENTY DOLLARS IS IN THE MAIL FOR ME.
ummm some sewing threads or a fat quarter may be in order, on no I forgot I told The Scot I would share it with him now what can I buy for $10.
