LOL of the Moment: Surveys
Yesterday was Big Show at my university. I decided to volunteer with the American Marketing Association (AMA) just because I want to gain marketing field experience and a free ticket to the show. Anyway, my responsibility involved surveying attendees. To make things interesting, one of the survey questions gave me a lot of flack, just because the university is trying to be politically correct about it. Here is a sampler:
Me: Hi there, I'm with the Associated Students and I'm here to take a survey. Would you like to participate?
Stranger: Yeah, sure. Why not?
Me: With which gender do you identify? Male. Female. Other.
Stranger gives me a squinty look, then replies.
Stranger: I'm fluid. Where does that fit?
Besides those awkward encounters, I had a blast watching The Cataracs and B.o.B. perform. In the words of my AMA president: it was AMAzing!
