After I bought my Prius c, I got an email asking me to take a survey online. Normally, I don’t like to take surveys but since I had a good experience, I decided to take the time to fill it out.
Everything looked okay at first, and I was on page 2 of the form as shown below.
Then, when I pressed “Next” to go to page 3, I got the following error:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC drivers error ’80004005′
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Transaction (Process ID 125) was deadlocked on lock | communication buffer resources with another process and has been chosen as the deadlock victim. Rerun the transaction.
/pages/insert.asp, line 838
Whoops. I tried going back and re-sending the page with the same results. Perhaps, they were doing some maintenance on the page.
Maybe they should log these errors to a file and show a more user friendly message. Or not.
Later, I got another email referring to the fact that I didn’t take the survey and wanting me to take it. Sorry, but you only get one chance to waste my time. Fool me once… well you know the rest.
