My Voting Experience

In my real life, I sometimes seem to grab some attention where ever I go. Only problem is, it isn’t the kind of attention a gal would want, and it happened again yesterday.

My girl friends and I went to vote for my guy Obama, and you’re not going to believe what happened. As God is my witness, this is what happened:

Wherever I go, I hang my camera around my neck by the strap; kind of like a necklace. When it was my turn to show my ID and sign my name, the lady said sarcastically and as loud as could be, “WHAT are YOU doing here with a camera?!” I replied in a curt manner something to the effect that I always carried my camera with me, but if it wasn’t allowed to have a camera at the voting booth, I’d leave it with her. She told me it wasn’t necessary, since there was a judge sitting a little further from her. The next thing I said was WEEELLL DOG GONE IT! The woman definitely didn’t like me at all by this time. Oh well.

I went to my little voting booth and started reading the instruction and then shoved the card inside, then pressed NEXT. Nothing happened. I pressed NEXT again, and again nothing happened. I then called for HELP, and guess who rushed to my aide, the same silly tense lady who couldn’t keep her cool! She told me to pull the card out. I pulled, but the card wouldn’t come out. Very much perturbed, she then SHOVED me aside and pulled, and pulled, and pulled on the card. It wouldn’t come out. She then YELLED at me that I had shoved the card in the wrong place!! By this time all the blood had gone to my head and I could feel myself blush like crazy from embarrassment! The woman then YELLED for the judge, and told him to bring some pliers. “SHE! Pushed the card into the wrong place!!” she yelled all flustered. HERE COMES THE JUDGE for real. He didn’t say do or say anything, and walk back to his seat. I looked towards my girl friends, and they were looking in the opposite direction, pretending they didn’t know me! I looked at everyone and their eyes were on ME with disgust!! I blushed some more. Then the woman yelled, “I’ll have to lock up this booth that you broke!” My eyes were bug eyed by now, and I kept asking myself how in the world could I have broken the machine, if I only shoved the card inside? For the heck of it, I decided to push NEXT again, and guess what? It went to NEXT!! The machine worked. I told the woman, “It works. See, I DID NOT push the card in the wrong place like you said.” I was tempted to also say HAR, HAR, but decided to keep my mouth shut. As for the look on the lady’s face, if looks could kill, I’d be dead!

I finished voting, and then walked away, and all I asked was, “Where do I put this card?” They all yelled and pointed, including the judge, “THERE!”

Although, it was a horrible experience, I am ecstatic that I voted for Barrack Obama!

Well the good thing is that at least you don't have to see those jackoffs again for another four years.

I'll forgive her ...
Oh so true! The lady was pretty old, so I'll forgive her for losing her cool. As for the judge, he pretended he didn't know what was going on. :o)
Oct. 26th, 2008 07:16 pm (UTC)
YAY for voting!
Oct. 26th, 2008 07:21 pm (UTC)
What a great feeling Sweet Pie!

See I told you bad things would happen when you voted for obamasan and WHY did you have to vote early? You not gonna be here on the 4th?

Oct. 26th, 2008 08:52 pm (UTC)
pretty long
I voted yesterday to avoid the huge lines on the 4th. As it was, the line was pretty long yesterday. :o)

I have no shame. I'd have yelled back at the dumb old cow. I cannot stand to see the one-sided scolding and accusation like she did. I give it back now. Nobody has to be that cruel to yell like she did, and people like that need a dose of their own style. Even though they think they're still right for doing it.
I'm not above shoving back, to make a point either. To be shoved out of the way vs. asked to move is unacceptable. And with that many witnesses, it'd be hard for the wrong story to get me in worse trouble than her.

But I admire your restraint. For the same reasons, the public saw who was the jackass in this exchange. Not you.

whispered quitely
Taking pictures never even crossed my mind. I mean, I know better than to take a picture of someone voting. I know it's a very private matter for all of us.

If she'd have just whispered quitely to me that no pictures were allowed, everything would have been fine. I would have whispered back that I already knew that. Another thing she could have done is kept quiet about the camera, then walked up to the judge and told him to keep an eye on me.

You kept your cool pretty well. I would have been very rude to the old cow.
Oct. 30th, 2008 04:09 am (UTC)
I suppose I did keep my cool, but today something happened where I EXPLODED! I'll post about it, and I hope you will give me your views on it!

*kisses* to you for voting Obama. <3
Oct. 30th, 2008 04:10 am (UTC)
Kisses right back at you! Because I know you voted for Obama LOVE, also! :o)
Oct. 27th, 2008 03:20 am (UTC)
What? Well you've got the patience of a saint cause I'd have been suggesting right where she could shove her fucking card. I don't know what the registar is like out there but if a poll worker raises hell like that they don't belong in the precinct.

Something entirely different happened to me today. In the end, I lost my patients in a most nasty way, but I honestly believe even the Virgin Mary would have done so, also.

I'll post about the nightmare tomorrow.

You shoulda said "HAR HAR"!!!!
Oct. 30th, 2008 04:12 am (UTC)
I should have, and I should have today for an intirely different reason. I'll be making a post about what happened to me today (it's truly unbelievable), and I hope you express what you would have done, had this happened to you.

See, that's why elections in Australia are better. The worst I can do is break their pencil in the booth as I mark the ballot paper. :)
Oct. 30th, 2008 04:13 am (UTC)
Not only are elections better in Austrailia, but Australia produces brilliant folks! Just Look at you Sweet Pie!

I just had to share this...
The Night Before Elections...
(A take-off on " The Night Before Christmas ")

'Twas the night before elections
And all through the town
Tempers were flaring
Emotions all up and down!

I, in my bathrobe
With a cat in my lap
Had cut off the TV
Tired of political crap.

When all of a sudden
There arose such a noise
I peered out of my window
Saw Obama and his boys

They had come for my wallet
They wanted my pay
To give to the others
Who had not worked a day!

He snatched up my money
And quick as a wink
Jumped back on his bandwagon
As I gagged from the stink

He then rallied his henchmen
Who were pulling his cart
I could tell they were out
To tear my country apart!

" On Fannie, on Freddie,
On Biden and Ayers!
On Acorn, On Pelosi"
He screamed at the pairs!

They took off for his cause
And as he flew out of sight
I heard him laugh at the nation
Who wouldn't stand up and fight!

So I leave you to think
On this one final note-

Let's Remember, the next President gets to select the next Supreme Court justices, approve or veto all forms of liberal legislation from a runaway
Congress that oversaw collapse of unqualified lending, and stand for or against pre-born life. Our children and grandchildren will inherit the mess left behind, along with the debt.

Obama = Marxist Socialism.

Re: I just had to share this...
Cute poem. Barf! heh heh

Republicans are desperate, low down creeps, and they continue at grasping at straws. This kind of accusations are what are pulling Obama up the polls by the little people like myself. :o)

Sending you even more love for voting for our man, Obama!

Ron, I've gone through another unbelievable thing today. I'll post every detail in tomorrow's post. Please give me your thoughts, and what you would have done, had it happened to you.

Re: Al Queda endoreses McCain, Republicans endorse Obama
Please make the next 6 days go by fast, so I won't have to look or listen to THAT ONE, and the Barracuda anymore! P-L-E-A-S-E!

Isn't Politico great?!
Oct. 28th, 2008 03:57 pm (UTC)
Bad luck at the booth? Well, sh...tuff happens.

I really don't like this early voting thing. I seriously wonder if it's even constitutional.
Oct. 30th, 2008 04:20 am (UTC)
I seem to have bad luck everywhere!

You are not going to believe what happened to me today. This really took the cake, and in the end, I didn't behave like a lady at all. When I post about it, please give me you thoughts on the matter.
