After over thirty years of trying to get things done in the confines of a one hour lunch break, I've gotten used to competing with retirees, non-working parents and their children and rich lunch ladies for restaurant tables, a place in line at the bank and space on the roads.
I understand that humans tend to want to eat mid-day. I do it myself. So, I've learned which restaurants can get us in and out in an hour even if they're busy. If I have bank business, I leave the office early or late so I can avoid the crowds.
While I was running errands over my lunch hour last week, I decided to vote. The line was at least twenty people deep and fully half of the people in line were not on a lunch hour.
Would somebody tell me why, if you have all damn day long to vote, or do anything for that matter, would you go to the polls or do anything at all between noon and one when it's going to take at least twice as long as if you did it any other time? I don't get it.
