The winner of a prize draw for participants in an on-line customer satisfaction survey has expressed his disappointment at the fountain pen he won, using an on-line survey regarding the win. Mr Colin Vickery of Bristol rated the prize pen’s aesthetic standard as ‘Moderately Poor’ and its writing performance as ‘Fairly Adequate’. Mr Vickery went on to score his overall prize-winning experience as ‘Below Average’, despite never having won anything before.
Mr Vickery, ‘31 to 49’, has contributed to ‘More Than 1000’ on-line surveys but has only been ‘Very Satisfied’ on ‘Fewer Than Five’ occasions. By a strange coincidence, he was the lucky winner of the star prize in one of those ‘Fewer Than Five’ surveys, although the agency that ran the draw, Quantity Surveyors Ltd, refused to comment on that or reveal how many names were in the hat.
Despite his disappointment, Mr Vickery thought it was ‘Substantially Unlikely’ that the prize would discourage him from completing further on-line feedback forms, although he added that the chances of him recommending other Quantity Surveyors Ltd on-line feedback prize draws to friends were ‘Medium to Low’.
The results of the on-line survey to establish how Mr Vickery evaluated his experience of completing the on-line feedback form regarding his prize for completing the original on-line evaluation are expected shortly.
(Did my expenses this morning and then the system asked me to 'evaluate my expenses submission experience for the chance of winning a valuable prize' - aaarrrghh!)
