It was while completing one of Zynga's ubiquitous surveys recently that a bleak vision began to creep into my mind. I pictured a poor, lowly intern charged with the task of quantifying the results of these many surveys for upper management. What a pathetic scene, sitting in their cramped little cubicle, painstakingly poring over hundreds of thousands of survey responses and ticking off the appropriate boxes in a spreadsheet in order to aggregate data for some ungrateful executive who probably wouldn't even give it a second glance. What a horrible, thankless, boring job that must be!
So, I decided to help make this person's miserable existence slightly less soul-crushing by answering the mundane survey questions in a somewhat unorthodox manner. To illustrate my point, here are a few excerpts from responses I gave during the Percy's Clubhouse survey:
In addition, here are some other responses that I provided in response to the Summer Grill survey:
Ooh, here's an oldie but a goodie from the Mayoral Election Campaign survey!
So, the next time you find yourself filling out one of these surveys, remember the lowly survey intern whose job it is to read all of these tedious and repetitive responses. Why not take an extra moment or two to give them something unexpected and make their day a little brighter?
