Hmmmm... only in El Paso...

I just got an odd call. It was a survey. This was the extent of it:

Me: Hello?
Caller: Buenas Noches, con Don Victor Morales
Me: Uhhh.... speaking... errr hablando....
Caller: Muy bien. (identifies himself) estamos conduciendo un estudio
Me: uh-huh
Caller: Tengo une pregunta, usted habla Ingles?
Me: Si
Caller: Y siente que lo habla bien?
Me: Si
Caller: Bueno. Muchas gracias, buenas noches.

For those of you non-Spanish speakers, the whole survey was: Do you speak English? Do you feel that you speak it well?

Ummm... I must be missing the point of this survey because it seems that it would make a few thousand times more sense to ask that question in something like... I dunno... English? Normally I would suspect a prank caller, but the caller ID says that its an unknown caller which around these parts equals call center (the few prank calls I've received were from "blocked" numbers).

I suppose its possible for that call/survey to be for non-English speakers and they figured out what the situation was based on how I answered the phone, but still. Very odd.... The sad thing, of course, being that I would actually believe that someone conducting a survey here would do it like that.


  • Meet Dargo....

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

  • RIP Morticia a/k/a Ninja Cat :-(

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
