A conversation I just had with a co-worker:
Steph: Did you vote, yet?
Me: Yeah, early voting ends today. I voted “For” on the school bond election. It won’t raise the taxes that much and I always vote “yes” on school bond elections. I want them to have everything they want, new cafeterias, new gyms, spas, I don’t care. Give it all to ‘em.
Steph: Why am I not surprised? This coming from the person who never looks at her 401(k) statements or paystubs.
Me: That’s right and you know what? I made $x,xxx on my 401(k) last month.
Me: Yep, my dad says, “God takes care of small animals and dumbasses” and I am not a small animal, so...
Me: When you do go vote, there are about four pages of statewide propositions on the ballot before the local school bond issue. I didn’t understand any of them so I just voted “For” on all of them.
Me: Yeah, I figured if somebody cared enough to go to all the trouble to get a proposition on the ballot, I should give them a shot.
Eveybody in the kitchen: HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!
Steph: Why am I not surprised?
All of the statewide propositions passed by large margins so, I was right. Harumph!
