Census Working Challenges Stereotypes

It's funny how people differ from assumptions might lead you.

When working the Census, I interviewed someone that I would have guessed was a drug dealer, but they were the most supportive person I've run in to to date. They were telling me to keep it up, and not to let the job get me down, that sort of thing. I've had the most resistance (sullen, wordless resistance, mostly) from people I would have guessed would have been cooperative and helpful.
