What are the Chances?
Yesterday a government census guy showed up on our door and made an appointment to come back tonight for a survey. Turns out that our address was selected AT RANDOM to participate in a government survey of the rate of inflation. And when I say AT RANDOM, I mean AT RANDOM. We are on the only address in the DFW metro area doing this survey. In two weeks it will be a completely different household. What are the chances? This should get interesting as our family will probably skew the results. We don't shop at grocery stores. I don't buy your typical cleaning products. I don't buy baby products. I don't buy bread and my eggs are fresh from a farm. Add to that fact that we're on a spending freeze. . .I wonder if Washington DC can here me laughing from here. Not that I am trying to be rebellious or anything. . .I just don't like to cooperate with much of anything the government would like me to voluntarily participate in. I do, however, realize that knowing the rate of inflation can be a good thing. I am just not sure I'll be much help at this point.
