I had a firearm pulled on me in a case of mistaken identity at the height of the recession. It was a week before I was scheduled to leave California. I climbed aboard my truck and headed to work, and I recall hearing a helicopter overhead, and I remember seeing a suspicious amount of cop cars cruising the neighborhood. I turned down a couple of blocks and was pulled over by a police officer. I saw in the rearview mirror that he was rushing towards me with a pistol drawn. I had the window down, and when he approached he kept screaming to see my hands. I threw my hands up, and the cop stared at me for a brief moment, then he spoke into his should, "it's not him." With that, he ran back to his cruiser and took off.

I shook as a lit a cigarette and went to work anyway. Ah, to be 18 again!

Just a heads up "Social Science Survey(~ 10 minutes)" by Katerina Oberdieck

Not worth the time, Myself and several other are being screened out during a closing demographics screen. Skip this one.

Ahh bummer, too late on that one I opted for reporting and returning, darn would have loved the compensation but I also don't support a requester that would set up HIT's this way, so I'll just have to swallow this one. Good luck though, see you around!

It's a mistake on her part. If you submit with your ID, she will approve.
