Calling people to answer an election survey at work…

And this happens:

Me: “Hi, my name is Meg and I’m calling on behalf of the University of Wyoming –”

Respondent: “What the hell do you want?”

Me: “Well, we’re doing a survey on the 2012 Election for research purposes and –”

Respondent: “Obama is a muslin [sic] who hates self-made men like me. And you should get a job, missy, instead of bothering people on the Lord’s Day.”

Me: “This IS my job, sir.”

Respondent: “You get PAID to do this?”

Me: “Yes.”

Respondent: “Only in OBUMBO’S AMERICA does this happen, do people get paid for this. Working for an illegitimate president…. Quit smoking dope and get a real job or a husband, sweetie.”

Me: “So, would you be willing to help us out with the survey? It’s for the Poli-Sci department at UW, not President Obama.”

Respondent: “Not my president. Go to hell and God bless.”
