"I Voted!" and other things you should shout at people.
It’s Election Day! Did you vote yet? If not…quit reading this blog and go vote!
I cast my ballot this morning and felt all patriotic and proud until I realized that my polling station totally doesn’t give out “I Voted” stickers! Uh, excuse me, but half of the reason I got up this morning and walked through the bitter cold to two different polling stations to cast my presidential vote was so I could be all bragg-y to others on the bus who obviously hate America and didn’t vote yet.
Ok, so I know you’re in “recovery” mode and all, Hoboken, but let’s get our priorities in order.
And then I had this embarrassing encounter:
Me: There aren’t any voting stickers?
Polling person: What are voting stickers?
Me: You know, those stickers that say “I Voted” that you get after voting?
PP, laughing: No, we weren’t even sure if our machines would be up and running in time, so we forgot about the stickers.
Me: Yeah, I guess the hurricane really ruined everything.
PP, realizing I have unbalanced priorities: Uh…yeah.
Whatever, so I voted and now I guess I’ll just have to randomly shout “I Voted!” at people as I walk down the street. Oddly enough, I probably won’t be the craziest person they encounter today. You've gotta' love NYC.
