But they're going to vote...

This is something I enjoyed that passed through my inbox just before the last presidential election.  It sort of explains the outcome.

While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which
direction was north because, he explained, he didn't want the sun waking him
up every morning.  She asked, "Does the sun rise in the north?"
When another person jumped in and explained that the sun rises in the east
(and has for some time), she shook her head and said, "Oh, I don't keep up
with that stuff."

But she's going to vote.


I used to work in technical support for a 24x7 call center. One day I got a
call from an In-duh-vidual who asked what hours the call center was open. I
told him, "The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."

He responded, "Is that Eastern or Pacific time?" Wanting to end the call
quickly, I said,"Uh. Pacific."

But he's going to vote.


My colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria when we overheard
one of the admin assistants talking about the sunburn she got on her weekend
drive to the shore. She drove down in a convertible, but "didn't think she'd
get sunburned because the car was moving."

But she's going to vote.


I was in a high school advanced physics class and the teacher was talking
about a new military weapon that uses sonic waves on the battlefield to
burst enemy soldiers' chests.

One In-duh-vidual in the class spoke up and said, "Well that's stupid! Why
don't they just wear headphones?"

And a few years later, he's going to vote.


My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car. It's designed to cut through a
seat belt if she gets trapped. She
keeps it in the passenger side door's map pocket.

But she's going to vote.


My friends and I were on a beer run and noticed that the cases were
discounted 10%. Since it was a big party, we bought two cases. The cashier
multiplied two times 10% and gave us a 20% discount.

But she's going to vote.


I was hanging out with a conservative friend of mine when we saw a woman
walk by us with a nose ring attached to an earring by a chain.  My friend
said, "Wouldn't the chain rip out every time she turned her head?"

I had to explain to her that a person's nose and ear remain the same
distance apart no matter which way the head is turned.

But she's going to vote.


My girlfriend and I were picking up some sandwiches from the sub place last
week and she asked the clerk which one of two sandwiches was better.  The
clerk didn't have an opinion but did say that the first sandwich was more
expensive.  My girlfriend got a quizzical look on her face and asked, "If
that's the case, why are they both listed with the same price on the menu?"

To this, the clerk responded, "I don't think they tax the turkey."

But he's going to vote.


I was at a convenience store buying a 99-cent "Behemoth Gulp" or some such
thing.  The cost with tax was $1.02.  I only had a $5 bill.  The clerk asked
if I had two pennies.  I said I didn't.

She said, "We'll take a couple from here," and got two pennies out of her
penny cup at the register.  She handed me back my change: $4 in bills and
the two pennies.

But she's going to vote.


I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area. So I went to the
lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed up.

She smiled and told me not to worry because they were trained professionals
and I was in good hands. "Now," she asked me, "has your plane arrived yet?"

But she's going to vote.
