telephone survey

this conversation happened at my house, just as i was going up to bed:

(phone ring)

me: hello?

guy: hello, is (my name) there?

me: this is. what can i do for you?

guy: well, my name is (name) and i represent (company). this is not a telemarketing call. we're making a confidential survey to find out how people such as yourself feel about important issues.

me: is the proper use of reflexive pronouns on your list?

guy: ah, well, i don't know, but how about we do the survey?

me: tell you what. when your call script uses reflexive pronouns properly, why don't you call me back?

(hangs up)

Those scripts are awful, beyond being pushy and uncommunicative.
