My get rich quick scheme...

Apparently, when online websites advertise: “MAKE A GILLION DOLLARS IN A MONTH FOR TAKING SURVEYS” they really mean “Yeah…you can make that much but you have to take like double that amount of surveys…and that’s next to impossible”. I’m a “find out for yourself, even if you waste countless minutes from your life because really you have nothing better to do with your time at 1:15 in the morning because really no one’s up except Alyssa and although she’s amazing to talk to she doesn’t pay me” kind of person. While listening to a cheesy audio track play over and over and over and over and did I mention it was on repeat, I only managed to gather that I could instantly become rich for taking online surveys. Hello Landrover.

I filled out numerous forms with the same questions over and over, however I got the occasional interesting question like: “Would you like a chance to win $3,000 in hair removal?”. Answer? No. I don’t think I even have three thousand dollars worth of hair and I would rather not have it removed by laser off of my body. This immediately puts a mental image of some high tech alien technology sending tiny beams of super focused light into my hair follicles and disintegrating them. I like my hair follicles a little too much to put them through such emotional trauma. Where was I?

Oh yeah. After filling out ONE form, ONE, not fifteen, my inbox was swarmed with countless emails, so I was thinking YES! I’m on my way! No. I was wrong. Again. I didn’t even qualify for half of them. My attention span didn't last much longer and I ventured off to lurk Twitter and watch mind numbing Youtube videos. I'm still working on surveys as they email them too me. It may be too early to say this but I think my office hours are going to be 12 a.m to 5 a.m because that seems to be just about the time that I'm wasting my life away answering meaningless questions about someone's new product that they're paying me fifty cent to fill out "valuable consumer information".

EDIT UPDATE:
Most of my surveys have been sent to the spam folder due to my lack of attention span. I currently have 1,256 spam messages. Most are surveys.
