17 Again

Outside the grocery store again, a man holding a clipboard rushed up to me.

"Excuse me miss, are you old enough to vote?" he said.

I didn't mean to laugh in his face, but I kinda did. Because that's the second time someone has said that to me recently - and I'm 23 years old. I tried to pass him by but he was persistent.

"Would you like to sign this petition for lower car insurance? Lower your car insurance?"

I laughed again because car insurance? I wish! I steered my bike around him.

"No thanks," I said.

"Car insurance! Lower your car insurance!!" He cried and I pedaled away as fast as I could. Seriously, signature-collectors roam this city like vultures. They are everywhere, especially downtown. If you let them get within a 8-foot radius of you they will latch on and NOT let go until you sign. Mr. Drawworm says I should just start telling people that yes, I am too young to vote. They'd definitely believe me.
