Subject: USDA Survey Rant

SO tonight, I was redoing the U-Joint job I just did on the 895 because I realized I had the joints out of phase and was getting a vibration when turning when the phone rings. I normally do not stop to answer it but due to several family health issues in the last week, I dropped what I was doing and picked it up.
On the other end was "Laquesha" with the USDA asking if I has recieved my rent survey. I just hung uo the phone and went back to work and no more than got my hands full of tools when the phone rang again.
Sure enough it was Laquesha saying "we must of got disconnected." As my blood began to boil, She asked if I had got my survey?
I replied "Yes".
"Have you filled it out and returned it?"
I replied "No but let me ask you, What is todays date?
She replied "May 10th"
"Do you know what farmers do on May 10th ?" I asked in my calmest voice. " they plant corn is what we do on May 10th, I am elbow deep in a tractor trying to fix it so I can do just that and I would think the USDA would have better things to do than bother farmers in the middle of the busy season about a survey that was voluntary."
She replied " i am just doing my job"
I replied "So am I" and hung up the phone.

She didn't call back a third time.
End Rant
