EF Survey - tosh

So a little window popped up asking if I could spend 2 or 3 minutes on an EF survey.

County of birth?
England NO. Great Britain NO. United Kingdom NO

The correct answer from drop-down options: British.

You know what's next, don't you?

Country of residence?
Switzerland NO.

The correct answer from drop-down options: SWISS...

Re: EF Survey - tosh

The survey was so poor that it didn't even make clear it was from EF.
In-fact, I'm starting to wonder...

Re: EF Survey - tosh

I didn't get a survey. I feel unloved.

P.S. I hope everyone said they lived in Swedenish.

Is "S***hole" an option, or was it written before the latest Trumpism?

Well you‘ll all change your mind when they offer an EF Coach Trip around the country and we get to vote off someone each morning.

It was when I read the title of the first section " Habbits" that I decided not to bother.

I used Middlesex as an example of a County (Abfab has now corrected her original post changing County to Country) as I'm totally PC and Middlesex is neither male or female.

I wasn't born in 1965.

As an aside, did you know the county of Avon ceased to exist in 1996 but almost every drop-down menu on shopping websites today still have Avon rather than one of the four counties that has replaced it: Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

I think they decided to stop calling it Avon when Avon ladies stopped calling at peoples' houses selling cheap makeup to housewives.
