Is Illiteracy the norm for your survey??

I am in general very satisfied with everything about HughesNet, the speeds, the service, the free equipment upgrade, call response time, picture quality and download times now that I have a smart tv, etc.  I recently got the tv and called up to see about expanding my bandwith and for just 10 bucks more was able to double it.  The person who handled my call was great and took care of things in minutes. 

 

My problem - the survey.  THIS NONSENSE was the first question: 

 

Do you remember contacting HughesNet Customer Support on when case was created?

^^^^

THAT is copied and pasted right from the screen.  It makes absolutely NO sense, has not one bit of comprehensible grammar and ended my plan to give you guys a great review.  I realize that many things are handled overseas and there are language issues... but please, Hughes Net, are you so cheap that you can't have ONE person in charge of seeing if your survey was written in a way that is comprehensible to someone with a third grade education??? 

 

Please have someone proofread this who is literate in very basic ENGLISH.

 

PATHETIC.

WOW. Talk about double standards.

  Perhaps I'm illiterate also, but I don't see anything wrong with the grammer.  One could argue that the word "the" should be before the word "case".  It also makes perfect sense to me, and only requires a yes or no answer.   A rather silly question though, unless the purpose of the survey  is to find out how many of your customers have dementia.

Much ado...

 

As someone that has edited other's work for a long time, it's an obvious typo that commonly comes from writing one thing, then quickly changing it to something else. There were likely words between 'on' and 'when' (something like 'the day') and 'on' was never removed with the other words.

 

For all the things that people complain about on here, this has to be the most petty.

I agree. Make one typo or the wrong statement on social media and there'll be tons of people right there to 'correct' you. Gives them a false sense of self-worth.
