Poll For My English Comp Homework

Hey, I'm alive! I've just been over on tumblr lately. Sorry.

Anyways, I have this paper I need to write, an argumentative essay, and I need some help with it. I just need everyone to take a few polls. Pretty please?

And spread the word, please!


So, background. My topic is Social Obligation. Basically, should you do something you don't want to out of social obligation? For example: birthday calls are a thing. But say you hate talking on the phone and would rather send an email. But somehow, emails aren't as personal (I don't really get that; it's like a birthday card you get faster) so you're told to call instead.

Or say it's the birthday of someone you never talk to. Do you call, and have them KNOW that you're only calling because you think you have to? In my opinion, that wouldn't make anyone feel good.

So, the polls:

Poll #1933866 Social Obligation

Do you think a person should do something out of social obligation, even if that person doesn't want to?

Yes
0(0.0%)
No
4(57.1%)
It depends on what it is (please elaborate in comments)
3(42.9%)
I don't know
0(0.0%)


Also, please comment on your thoughts about social obligation. You can remain anonymous if you'd like. I will likely be quoting some of you, but I'll be referring to you as either Anonymous, or Livejournal User or tumblr user, or Twitter user, etc. Let me know which; it might be useful.

And here's another poll, because I'm curious. Personally, I prefer emails. Because this is me on the phone: "Hello! I'm fine. You? That's good. Uh huh. Yeah. Oh? Uh huh. Good." And that continues for several awkward (for me) minutes. I never know what to say during phone calls. Whereas with emails, I have time to think of what to say and how to say it.

Poll #1933867 Methods of contact

Are emails less personal than phone calls?

Yes
3(50.0%)
No
3(50.0%)


Please spread the word!
