Thanks but no thanks

I've got time. I've got opinions. People will pay for those opinions so why not? Except I think I said yes 1 too many times. I did this really dumb survey thing for a week for Microsoft but it was only two 5 minute email surveys a day for a week and they paid me a $100 gift card from Amazon. Nice. That's the way it should go.

The TiVo NBC thing has been the opposite. They had me install a very invasive (they warned me) app on my phone, tablets and desktop. And then two Olympic apps both of which were really crappy. Then answer a survey only they didn't always tell me when and where the surveys were. It was killing the wifi speed on all the stuff that had that invasive app and it was annoying the shit out of me.

Tonight I got a weird voicemail - no phone call, just voicemail that I hadn't completed the requirements correctly so they were booting me out of the program. FABULOUS! Now I can get all this crap off my hardware and go back to my much better life. I should have smelled a rat. TiVo survey's are always stupid. And that app was a big flag.

Then I got another survey in the mail for a survey group I signed up for and the damn thing wouldn't work. I suspect it wanted a Windows or a Mac or a different browser. But by now I'm done. I just said fuck it, don't send me any more anything.

Put a fork in me, I'm done. The next one who wants to pay for my opinion will pay in money BUT ALSO in good sense, decent software and on a timeline that suits me. (That damn software is taking 4.6 days to uninstall off my PC. Holy crap.)

Lesson Learned!

Oh, here's a bear that I just finished. New one starts right now!
