I wanted to get at my polling place between 10-10:30 this morning – but I got caught up on some blogs, and was running late. I really wanted to beat any lunch rush, so I hurriedly showered, dressed, and headed out the door at 10:45.
My polling place is minutes from my house, and it turns out that although they said they were busy in the morning, I was the only voter at the time. As they were verifying my ID the lady asked me if I was trying to make a political statement with my T-shirt and my initial reaction was, “Crap, what am I wearing?” – I’ve been given some pretty weird shirts over the years.
It turns out that the T-Shirt was on backwards. It has similar logos on the front and back, and I was rushed. I also thought the lady was serious for a second until she started cracking up.
I voted (and turned my shirt around in the booth) and when leaving told the lady that I had decided at the last minute to vote completely opposite of what I had planned, since obviously it was a backwards day for me.
They all got a laugh or two at my expense, and I’m fine with that.
