I had a "friend" who would ask questions until you hung up or left the room.
Finally, I got tired of it and I said " have 3 questions...after
that, we trade back and forth. Funny. we never got past three.

In your case, after the third question, I would have interjected..."Where is
this going? is this a job interview or should I start the rate timer?"

You are not obligated to answer an endless string of questions for someone
when you don't know why (unless the signature on your paycheck is in their
pen) and sometimes people only get the hint when it's at the end of a 2X4

Hello Oh Mighty List Serv:

As I mentioned several weeks ago I am creating two 18-month calendars
from sratch and performing digital plastic surgery. I'm wrapping up the
first calendar today, when I get a phone call from a woman who knows me
from a women's group. She asked me what I was doing and I explained.

She replied, "You're doing design work? I thought you were a writer."

I replied, "This is the first design work I've done in at least 10
years. I am a writer, but you take whatever work comes your way."

Then she asked, "Well, what do you do more of design or writing?"

I replied "As I stated, this is the first design project I've had in 10
years. I am predominately a writer."
