    You know when someone accost you in the street and asks to to waste afew minutes of your time doing their questionnaire whats the best excus you used. One my mate told me really made me laugh.
    A woman came up to him with her milk qestionnaire and he said 'sorry i'm lactose intolerant,' so she got out her bread one he said 'sorry i'm wheat/gluten intolerant' so she got out her lifestyle one and he said 'sorry i'm gay' and walked away.

    Has anyone else used or heard any other funny ways of getting rid of people with annoying questions and quetionnaires?

    Or giving your honest opinion... in a sexually explicit way

    ^^ Note that only works on phones...

    Just stand there and do the questionaire. Then when you've finished, ask to do another in your 'other personality'
