Played Me For A Fool : Phone Survey

This morning I got a phone call asked me if I would take part in a 30 second survey on "the air quality in our community". Now, normally I politely say no to taking part in anything remotely close to this nature, but I knew from the local news reports that there is a 14 member council put together to analyze the local air quality here in Boise (the entire Treasure Valley actually) and I figured that I would like to help out. So I agreed.
Here are the questions I was asked (might be out of order, and maybe missing 1 or 2, but I think I recall them all):

1) Do you think that there is an air quality problem in the community?
2) Anyone in your household suffer from asthma or allergies?
3) Anyone in your household smoke?
4) Is your laundry detergent liquid or powder?
5) What brand of vacuum do you own, and how old is it?
6) Is your primary heating source gas, electric, or wood fireplace?

At this point the girl asking the questions said the rest is for demographic information and would not leave their office:

7) Do you own or rent?
8) For how long?
9) What model year is your car?
10) What type of work do you do? (don't need specific company name)
11) Are you single, married, divorced, living with significant other?
12) What is your wife's name?
13) Are you in your 20's, 30's, 40's, etc?
14) In case of emergency, what credit card gives you the best protection: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover?

When that last question was asked about the credit cards it hit me that the air quality survey portion was complete bullocks and a ruse to get me to answer some marketing questions.
I, like a complete fool, fell for the trap hook, line and sinker!
