Those who can’t think, teach

Filed under: Uncategorized — love2wryte @ 9:05 pm

Okay, usually it’s “those who can’t do, teach” but after standing on line to vote and hearing the following conversation I’m amending that.

Teacher (who’d already pissed me off because the idiot couldn’t figure out whether to stand in the A-K line or the L-Z line): I’m here to vote.

Poll Worker: Your last name?

Dumb-ass teacher gives last name.

Poll Worker: You’re not in here. Are you sure you’re in the right district?

Teacher: I teach at the school next door.

Poll Worker: But do you live in this district?

Teacher: No I live in (names a town 30 minutes away in ANOTHER COUNTY)

Poll Worker: Well then you can’t vote here.

Teacher: Why not?

Poll Worker: Because you have to vote in your home district. Do you have the ballot that was mailed to you? It tells you exactly where to go.

Teacher: So what am I supposed to do?

I cannot stress how much effort it took to not tell her exactly what I thought she should do.



  1. OMG! I shouldn’t be shocked. Having worked for a town hall for years, this is mild dumb-assness compared to some of the stuff I’ve heard.

  2. I am always shocked by dumb-assness.
