We got tons of notices and forms. Burned 'em. Then they pinned one on the gate. We left it there to weather. Then they called us up the other day - some woman asked for hub by name (I had no idea it was a census person), hub talked for many minutes and asked if it was constitutional for them to ask so many personal questions. The BOD was polite at first and then wasn't. She called up last night and when I answered a woman asked if I was (my name) and I answered "Yes". She said she was (name) a census worker so I immediately said - "I'm busy - I have to go have diarrhea" and hung up.
It was the first thing that came to mind... we are not going to answer the phone for a while; we don't have caller ID but we do have an answering machine.
We answered the freaking census 2 years ago. These questions are invasive, horrible, unconstiutitonal and none of their DAMN business.
