Highly Rigged

, , , , | Working | September 18, 2017

(It is about one week before a presidential election. One of the candidates has been insisting that the election is rigged throughout the past month or two. I work in a department which shares office space with another department in control of elections for the town. I have been asked to help test the ballot machines. We fill out sample ballots randomly, run them through the machines, and make sure each machine comes up with the correct totals for each candidate. Upon re-entering the office, I see a coworker who has started her shift while I was gone.)

Coworker: “Hello, ladies! Where have you been?”

Me: “Oh, just rigging elections.”

Coworker: “…”

Me: “Did I say that out loud?”

Coworker: *bursts out laughing*

Me: “No, but really, just testing the ballot machines. [Third Party Presidential Candidate] won, [Incumbent State Senator For Many Terms] lost, and [Unpopular Sheriff Candidate] won. But the marijuana question passed, so the voters were all high anyways.”
