please list Arbitron's owner's PERSONAL PHONE NUMBERS so we can call them and see how they like it. Hopefully they will get the point of what their "business" really does - harass people at home.
When I get their numbers my call is going to go like this:
"Hello, I'm calling to do a survey on people's thoughts on receiving phone calls on surveys. Do you
A: Welcome the survery calls - love talking to strangers on the phone
B: Find them annoying
C: Too busy to talk - call again later
Thank you for your time - I will call again in a few days to see if you changed your answer.
Have a great day."
Please people are a ROYAL pain in the butt. They had called many times until I finally answered to see who this was. They said that they wanted to do a survey on radio station. I told them that I didn't want to do it and please not to call again. I also pointed out that we are on the National Do Not Call List. The guy said that surveys were exempt from that. I said that I knew that but proceeded to say, "Now that I have asked you not to call me, you have to honor that". He them responsed in a very snarky tone, "Is that so, mamm"? I said, that it was and that I NEVER do surveys and that my time was valuable. Then he had the balls to ask me if there was anyone else at home will to do his survey. I told him that I was the homeowner along with my husband and NO you can't talk to anyone else. The following day someone who referred to himself as a supervisor called and said that he wanted to explain why they wanted me to do the survey since it is so important to the local media. At this point, I BLEW A GASKET! I told him that I could care less about the radio stations getting this info and that this was their last chance to stop calling me or I'd report them. This fellow was more nasty than the first guy and said,"Oh, yeally, is that how it works"? I said that it does work that way, that he was invading my home and if they called again that I would indeed report them so someone. At that point he said, "Well, I guess we can't count on you to help us"! What a jerk! They haven't called again, YET. If they do, I have friends both at the local offices of Clear Channel and another more local group called Leighton Broadcasting. I say that my time is valuable and it is, but I am so irritated at this point that I will take as much of what I perceive asmy valuable time to cause these idiots some serious grief!
