Just got a call from some company doing surveys for boaters. First they wanted my 10 year old son...Nope that ain't happening. So, she takes me and asks, "Have you purchased a new boat in the past 12 months?" Nope. END OF SURVEY!:D No kidding...it was the end of the survey. May be you will be lucky and get a call from her too.

They're all doing "surveys" now to try to get around the no call list. I ask for their name, their company's name, etc. etc. I had one get all tough talking last week telling me it wouldn't do any good. I told them that was for the courts to decide and suddenly he didn't want to talk much.

Or just set the phone down, walk away and let them waste theirs.

Last week I tried the Policeman answers the phone at the murder scene. The caller started defending himself, then must have caught on and hung up. Funny while it lasted!

I JUST got a call asking for my 8 year old daughter for the survey. My guess is that they got her name from USA Waterski as she is a card carrying member

File a complaint against USA Waterski about who they sell their lists too.

Years ago the US Postal service was doing a sting operation on child porn. I received some of their disturbing mail, and knew it came from one of the waterski vendors. How did I know? Because they had my address wrong. Sent the vendor a letter complaining about who they were selling their lists to. Didn't hear a response, but also didn't get anymore mail to that address except for their catalog.

That is exactly what I think. And...there is no age that they can get from AWSA..just a name.

Next time, if they ask for my 7 year old, I'm going to ask them to "Hold" while I go and get her....NOT!;)
