Not as Much as a Toenail on the Limb

As a member of a professional organization for technical writers, I dutifully cast my ballot online in the local chapter’s executive board election. I know only one of the candidates personally — the next president (who will do well if the job requires a lot of pontificating) — but I did scan their campaign statements.

Here’s the ballot I cast:

QC\'s PMC ballot

As you can see I really went out on a limb: I voted for the three candidates running unopposed, but I abstained from choosing between the two candidates for secretary. Is that not the epitome of indecisiveness?

Actually I did more than scan the statements of the secretarial candidates. I read them. Yet I still couldn’t choose between the two. I think I got hung up on gender. The candidates are of opposite sexes. I didn’t want to discriminate on that basis. Oh, I should add that as I cast my ballot I was enjoying a lunch of milquetoast at the QC Diner.

    The shrink who runs the Indecisiveness Clinic told me the hard part is getting people to sign up in the first place.

    Epilogue:
    The male candidate won the election for Secretary by a mere two votes.
