Are you bombarded with companies asking you to fill out customer satisfaction surveys, enter sweepstakes/contests, and even requests to call designated phone numbers to report your feedback?
It’s time to turn the tables with some unique variations for your own personal life!
“HOW’S MY DRIVING??”
“How’s My Cooking?” Post this bumper sticker on the kitchen microwave with the number “1-800-INEDIBLE.” Forward all phone calls to your local Dominos Pizza.
“How’s My Lovemaking?” Leave this placard conspicuously under a pillow and only field the obscene phone calls giving off-the-chart glowing reports.
“How’s My Parenting?” Follow this up with the direct cellphone number to the parent of your child’s very best friend . . . so they can finally receive the correct feedback you ALWAYS inadvertently end up hearing. “So & So’s mom always lets her wear short shorts with platform heels to school everyday!” and “So & So’s dad says buying a 16-year-old a brand new Mercedes reinforces taking care of nice things.”
“Punisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes!” Cash, Prizes, & Trips! Motivate your child to think about what they’ve learned during their Time-Out discipline by having them submit a 300 word handwritten essay. Tell them last year’s winning entry was creatively titled, “Thank Goodness Washing Mouths Out With Bars of Soap is Now Considered Child Abuse!” In the small print, have a legal disclaimer stating there are a few minor typos and “Cash, Prizes, & Trips” is really “Squash, Pretzels & Chips” — AKA their after school snack — when they emerge from their bedroom as the lucky recipient!
“Enter Raffle To Win Giant Shopping Spree!” Darn that pesky keyboard. That should read, “Mopping Spree!” Sponsored by Swiffer, of course.
“You Could Be Holding The Next Instant Winner!” Sheesh, really need to fire that proofreader on this whole contest copy thing. This one is sponsored by Lipton Noodle Soup — just add water and you’re holding Your Next Instant Dinner!
Instead of writing in the comment section about the food and service on the back of your restaurant check, give the quaint cafe a survey to fill out for YOU for once!
- What’s your favorite menu item listed under PASTA to cook for your patrons? Don’t you think $29.99 is a bit much to charge for just noodles and sauce?
- When did you first get the idea to keep your prices the same but slash the portion sizes in half?
- Do your chefs spit in our food when it comes back into the kitchen for a do-over or do they just drop it on the floor?
- When your waitress flirts with my boyfriend by touching his shoulder a lot, does she realize I leave the tip?
- On a scale of 1-10 please rate your experience with your customers regarding the following:
a) Knowledge of that old adage, “The customer is always right.”
b) Dietary Restrictions and how slappable our faces are in proportion to how many food allergy intolerances we actually have.
c) Weight Watchers wondering how many points your creamy caramel cheesecake is on our silly plan.
d) Regular diners who feel we’ve earned the right to pinch the bottoms of your cocktail servers.
Thank you! We’ll let you know how your answers modify our choosing your establishment on our next night out.

Let me know when you go to leave a comment here if WordPress asks you to rate them with something like this:
They’re not allowed to do that on MY blog today!!
