no survey code provided !
This is important to mention.
The requester warns you not to enter anything other than the survey code in the box on the Mturk page, but does not provide any code at the end, apart from "thank you very much"!

everything is slow today. I don't even know why I care. I'm retired. I guess I could work at Walmart or Home Depot for extra spending cash. But I don't want to. I get pension and SS. But not enough to go on expensive vacation until I'm done paying off my loan. But by the time I'm done paying off my loan I'll need another car. So that will be another loan. Geez, will there ever be a day I don't owe no one anything.

The money from the surveys are what I use to pay off my loan.

Oh well.
