I worked all day on November 6th, so I missed out on most of the election festivities. Thanks to Twitter and Facebook, I know I’m not the only one.
Some were worried about missing the election night experience.
I hate that I will be working during the elections! I want to attend some election parties!!!
Being stuck working in a basement with no cell signal and barely functional internet all evening during the election was kind of a bummer. I didn’t get a sense of how people were feeling or reacting to the votes rolling in until everything was already over. This has reminded me how important my mobile device is for keeping in touch with the world. Normally when I’m at work and communication is cut off, it’s not a big deal, but tonight I missed out on a little bit of history. If I have grandkids and they ask me about the night President Obama was reelected, all I can say is “I was stuck in the basement of an American Apparel with little to no contact from the outside world, but at least the stockroom looked nice.”
