Voting Day

Intern: I'll be coming in late Wednesday because I have to go vote

Me: Vote for what?

Intern: It's a national election ... for our leader ...

Me: Which one? Who do you get to vote for?

Intern: You know, Xi Jiping, he will be the next president...[now she's giving me the DUH voice]

Me: You get a choice?! I didn't know you got to vote for that.

Intern: Well it's like a fake democracy, we have to go write his name down.

Me: That sounds like a waste of time. Why do you want to go do that?

Intern: We have to. If we can't be there we have to say why.

Me: Ah, right. Okay. You're free to go vote.
