A week ago I received a letter from EU Mom inviting me to join a survey and in return for my input, I was promised the princely sum of €25 to be paid in the form of a voucher. Hmmm...it sounded interesting and I thought to myself, why not? I called the number given and after a short introduction, I set a date for the researcher to come over and conduct the survey.
The day finally arrived and I was surprised when I found out that as part of the survey, I actually had to complete a journal of what Husayn ate over 4 days along with full details of all his meals. It didn't stop there either, in order to get a detailed nutritional record of Husayn's eating habits, I also had to keep the packaging of whatever he ate. So, as the title says: What did I get myself into???
The researcher that came to my house even measured our height and weighed each of us for the record. I suppose, it was to better understand Husayn as their research subject. Anyway, after a few visits and with enough data collected from Husayn and I, the researcher visited us for one last time and gave out this voucher...
I know it might seem like a small amount to some of you, but hell, who would just hand over money for free??? I like!
