Anybody else out there receive a Nielsen TV Ratings Viewing Diary? We received a packet from them yesterday and they had enclosed 5 new one dollar bills asking us nicely to please fill this diary out starting Feb. 4th for a week. I hate when companies try making you feel obligated to donate or participate by giving you something in advance.
Bill and I have both donated to the disabled Veterans in the past and now we religiously receive those little address labels. They really don’t have to send those to us or me anyhow because I seldom ever send out paper mail and I donate when I can. I really hate when people try making me feel obligated or guilty especially when I’m broke also.
We have 3 televisions and they want me to fill out a lot of information about our system and then Thursday I’m suppose to keep track of everything that is watched on all 3 by everyone in the house including visitors. I personally don’t think we are a good representation of the people in our neighborhood and sometimes the TV is just on for noise.
Out of curiosity would you: 1. Keep the 5 and pitch the diary in the garbage? 2. Send the diary and 5 back? 3. Keep the 5 and keep track of all programs? 4. Keep the 5 and simply put down whatever you feel like?
