In this MPSIMS thread I explained how I had to find myself a crappy job. My new crappy job is…
I get to call people and ask them to do surveys.
It was my second shift tonight. Both last night and tonight, I found that a few people would say, “no, it’s too late for that kind of thing.” This reminded me of a friend who doesn’t permit his teenage kids to take phone calls after 8:00 p.m. Everyone is still up for at least another two or three hours, but for whatever reason that he’s never been able to explain to me, they’re just not allowed to accept calls.
So, my question. How late is “too late” for people to call you (assuming that “when I’m in bed” is just obvious)? Is there a different “too late” for friends and family and market-research-telephone-you-guys? If there is a deadline for your home to accept calls, but you’re still awake, why is there a deadline?
Incidentally, the “too late” for market-research-telephone-you-guys to call appears to be some time before 8:30 p.m.
