    (I work for a political party and am making polling calls.)

    Me: “Hello, my name is *** and I’m calling on behalf of the *** Party. Do you have time to take a quick survey for us?”

    Caller: “Yes.”

    Me: “Thank you. If there was a General Election tomorrow, who do you think you would vote for?”

    Caller: “There’s a General Election tomorrow?”

    Me: “No, but if there was, who do you think you would vote for?”

    Caller: “I would have trouble getting to the polling station, are you offering a lift?”

    Me: “No… it’s a hypothetical election about who would you vote for.”

    Caller: “Sorry, I have to go to the doctors tomorrow!”

    Me: *gives up*
