Today is Saturday: no shopping to do, and nothing that I have to do, just like to do. This morning after my stint on the computer and eating breakfast I had a little surf around to see what Facebook was doing, just a little daily amusement I have and then our local Co-op supermarket group invited me to take part in todays first Advent calendar game.
The prize is a credit card with 500 Swiss Francs to be used in the Co-Op. All I had to do was supply my telephone No. and answer a few silly questions, at least I thought so. Then I was told I was only half way there, and should call a special telephone to finish it all. Now I know what you are all thinking – a scam perhaps? It was not a scam because there were certain details that proved it was not. I must say I do not usually partake in these things, but for once I thought why not. And now the real work began.
I was connected on the computer to a site and had questions to answer, where I could click on A and B, so I began. Half an hour later I was finished, and must have had at least 100 questions to answer, of which I made 3 mistakes, but the lady on the phone said I was high up on the list blah blah blah, although the lady on the phone was a recording. Now when you are asked if bears make winter hibernation in Summer or Winter what do you answer. Exactly and I got that one wrong because it seems they hibernate in summer. I cannot remember the other two wrong answers. It seems if you win anything you will be contacted by phone. The prize is in the form of a plastic similar credit card which I know already, because you can buy them in the stores, so there will be no manipulating with bank accounts.
And now I am waiting patiently for my telephone call at home to tell me I have won 500 swiss francs credit for goods in the Co-Op – yes I know, but you can always hope. I even lost half an hour this morning with this and we ate half an hour later. Must be a golden oldie thing.
