Default I Did It !!!! (Census Form)

home sick today, got the form in my mailbox at 2 pm..filled it out by 2:02 pm and put it in the return envelope at 2:03 pm and caught my mailperson on her return run on the other side of the street at 2:05 pm, so my civic duty is completed (helps when you live alone)

for Hurricane Katrina folks that are not back home yet, it covers them in question #2 & #10..covers ethnic diversity in questions #8 & # 9

very easy to follow instructions, has a phone # if there are questions and ask for your phone number to ctc you if they have questions

painless and not invasive (IMHO)

I'm mighty proud of you Venice. Guess you won't be going to the pokey, or sending in that $100 fine for not filling out the form. The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I haven't received ours yet.

We just received the form a few minutes ago. Easy to fill out and not intrusive.

I thought ours would be in today's mail but it wasn't. As soon as it arrives I'll complete it and return it as it's something we have to do. Kinda' like dying and paying taxes.

I got mine today. All those personal and invasive questions......... I'll probably be the victim of identity fraud and now the government knows everything there is to know about me.

It took about two minutes and completely non-invasive. Oh yeah: They did ask for my phone number.

Take care,
Mike

Luanne,

I would not divulge such highly personal and sensitive information. I only allow it to be displayed in such documents as: "The Phone Book".

Yes: I wrote down my phone number.

Take care,
Mike

We got our's today. It took about a minute to fill out! All the information asked would be easy for anyone to find, without a census form.

Ours arrived today and as Yul Brunner used to say, "So let it be written! So let it be done!"

And so it was.

When I first opened the packet I thought, "Oh no! Multiple pages mean the long form." Well it was a short one, as long as, of course, I didn't have about nine kids or "distant" relatives living here! I probably should have put down, Huey, Dewey, Louie, Larry, Moe and Curly Joe in order to get more money for this area but that's illegal and no one, even around here, would ever do anything illegal to enhance their lifestyle.

Completed and will be mailed tomorrow

Todd
