There's fun to be had
Rather than just hanging up, I've decided to have some fun with the calls that are doing a "lifestyle questionnaire".
Q: What's your annual salary?
A: 2 guineas, 14 shillings and sixpence, although last year I elected to be paid via a barter system so technically it was 2 swans, a boar, six pigs and a flaggon of ale.
Q: Do you own your property or do you rent?
A: My property is actually still based on the old fuedal system, so technically I'm a serf to the lord of the manor.
Q: Do you receive your television by cable or satellite?
A: I get the data sent to me on 5 1/4 inch floppies and then install the programs from those direct to my Edison Vision-O-Scope viewing device.
