Top 5 Excuses I’m Tired of Hearing for Why People Won’t Vote

  1. I Don’t Have Time to Stand in Line

This excuse may be a valid one, if so many people weren’t willing to stand in line and wait for other things.  We all know a friend or family member that has woken up at the crack of dawn to stand in line at Best Buy or Walmart on Black Friday.  Heck, you yourself may have rolled out of bed to stand in line for two hours to wait to get a TV or two.  Or maybe you’ve been one of those people to wait in line to get the latest iPhone or pair of Jordans.

The point here is this.  People are eager to wait in line for small picture material items, but are reluctant to wait in line to vote.  That sounds crazy.  Taxes are always on the ballot.  If you want more money to spend on phones and shoes, try voting. In fact, if it will get you to the poll faster, think of voting as an opportunity to possibly earn you some extra spending money.   Everyone could use some extra coin.  And if you still can’t wrap your mind around waiting in line to vote, then GO vote early if your state allows it.

He Forgave Me, But Doesn’t Trust Me

Dear T,

My boyfriend still hasn’t forgiven me for a mistake I made 5 months ago.  Back then, I made the mistake of getting oral from a random at my friend’s house party.  Well, instead of keeping it a secret, I told him the day after it happened.  Although he was pissed and broke up with me, he eventually accepted my apology and forgave me.  At least that’s what I thought.  Since we got back together, he’s been super paranoid about me going places without him.  I mean I get I messed up, but I don’t want to be with him if he doesn’t trust me.  Heck I want a boyfriend, not a parole officer.  What do you think?

Thanks,

Donald No Trump
