Old Beng doing Surveys

lim peh ka li kong

Old Beng me lately money no enough so went to do some part-time job. One of the more simpler part-time job is to help to conduct surveys because you no need to have very high education to conduct survey, just need to stand in the middle of the road and ask for survey from passer-by.

If me can choose, me will want to interview only all the swee cha-bo, the chio chio one better la, hopefully can get their email addresses or better still telephone numbers BUT cannot leh, my survey must make sure all walks of people involved.

Actually ah, interviewing different types of people very funny one, all kinds of answers also have.

    Years ago, a friend of mine also had such a temporary part-time job. He told me it's those white collar workers, especially executive type who r more polite and obliging when it comes to such surveys. It's those blue-collar workers who r not as highly-educated who tend to be more rude and not interested in entertaining such survey requests. Of course, if got free gifts, different story lah ;p

    I personally try to avoid such people doing such surveys ;p
