This is how we roll in Texas:
An East Dallas woman is outraged after she claims one U.S. Census worker showed up at her door for a housing survey and would not take “no” for an answer.
Sonia Platz said the worker went as far as to camp out in her yard as she waited for Platz to change her mind.
“She’s ringing the bell, knocking on the door. And I’m like, ‘I don’t want to participate.’” Said Platz
The East Dallas resident said it started with a series of three letters from the U.S. Census Bureau. A few days later after receiving the third later, a census worker showed up. Her husband verbally declined.
But a few days later, a different worker showed up at their home and would not leave according to Platz.
“That is a whole, other level. That’s not following up. I felt like she a part of the mob,” said Platz.
The census worker sat on the bumper of her van for the next 30 minutes. Sonia said the worker would only get up from the back of her van every few minutes to see if she had changed her mind about taking the housing survey.
