They never let me anywhere near the studios but I'm sure I'd have the best "one hour - all request hour" if they did!
I've got a phone that sometimes works and an email account that I can't remember. Best way to reach me - just COMMENT below. Thanks!
Hi! I'm Mike The Web Guy. My boss told me that I should start one of these blogs, even though I'm not "on the radio." After being told that it was a "good idea," I figured, "why not?" I could always use another thing to do. Things about me... I'm a HUGE San Diego Chargers Fan (Any SoCal Locals who want to get together for a game - COMMENT back at me and let's HOOK IT UP). I live in Clifton Park. I'm all about APPLE (sorry PC people). I have a woman who lives upstairs in my house who is related to me by marriage. We have two kids who pretty much run our social life.
Well election day is upon us! Most of us put on our political pants once every four years and trudge out to the polls to vote for this country’s next president. It makes us feel alive and like we’re making a difference and, honestly, warm and fuzzy in our soul.
But the voting process, like everything else in this world, is not immune from annoying people who will stop at nothing to see your good time ruined. Here are eight types of human beings you’ll encounter today.
Be prepared to deal with them.
This guy is covered in buttons, handing out literature and actively campaigning for his desired candidate to anyone who will listen. He cares not about rules and tampering and general order. The fate of the world is at stake and he’s not going to go without one hell of a fight. He’s organizing buses, offering cookies and is all-around way too invested in what’s going on. Avoid at all costs. If he doesn’t stop badgering you, inform him you’re changing your vote to the other guy solely due to his thick-headedness.
The “Undecided Voter”
Four years and millions of campaign dollars have done nothing to convince this mouth-breather which candidate is better. This is the superfan’s prime target – a person SO undecided that he’s swayed while in line to vote. He’s identifiable by his New England Patriots hat and Boston Red Sox sweatshirt; a frontrunner to the bitter end. Realize his vote is as much important as yours and have your day destroyed.
The Old Sourdough
This guy will hang out at a polling location because, well, he literally has nothing better to do. He’s angling for free doughnuts and cider. He’s got a hat with several fishing hooks in it and won’t stop until he gets your thoughts on the weather or local high school football team.
The Rules Lady
She’s in charge of this here voting precinct and isn’t afraid to let you know about it. Do not step out of line. Do have your identification ready. This is the highlight of her life! Humor her and let her be Queen Bee. Arguing with an old lady is never a good look, no matter how warranted it is.
The Taking-Forever Guy
This joker disappears behind the curtain and doesn’t reappear for twenty minutes. What’s he doing in there? Napping? Having a last-minute change of heart? No one knows, but IT’S TAKING FOREVER.
This guy just can’t figure out anything. He doesn’t have the right forms, the right identification, or any idea how to cast his ballot. He’s too proud to ask. Five minutes later, he becomes Taking-Forever Guy.
The Ironic Voter
This dude is voting for Ralph Nader, or LeBron James or Mickey Mouse or any other write-in candidate. He’s wasting everyone’s time to make a “statement” about “something.” Avoid talking to him about SPAC or the latest episode of “The Walking Dead” because you just don’t get it, man.
The Bulldog Reporter
Like an overbearing girlfriend, old Johnny News will ask you no less than 34 questions about your voting experience. What is this, a pop quiz? Give short, pithy answers, leave the building, and don’t look back for four years. You survived!
