Stupid survey question

Sometimes I'm not quite sure what to make of survey questions. We stayed in a Marriott Hotel in Charlotte recently in preparation for a very early airline departure the next day. The company sent us a survey that asked, among other things, who I was traveling with. The included a checklist for various categories (business colleague, child, spouse/sig other, ... and then asked how many people in the group there were in each category.
I thought about putting down something like 4-5 spouse/sig others just to mess with them. I do wonder what they were thinking. I mean, this is NOT Saudi Arabia! How many people would actually admit to having more than one spouse or 'significant other'?
