They say a lot of people in this country live in an echo chamber, but one Georgia man lives in a “Bubble.”
Not an actual bubble, though. He’s not Jake Gyllenhaal in Bubble Boy. He just refuses to find out who won the presidential election.
In Brunswick, Ga, The Huffington Post reports, Joe Chandler fell asleep on election night without finding out the results, and he intends to keep it that way.
“Having subtracted myself from this political fracas and all of the mayhem of the digital media, I kind of found the center of the cyclone, it is very peaceful in my bubble of ignorance,” Chandler said.
When he goes outside, he pops on a pair of headphones and a sign that reads, “I don’t know who won, and don’t want to. PLEASE DON’T TELL ME.”
Ignorance is bliss, but Chandler doesn’t think he’s going to make it 2020, like he hopes.
“I’ll be lucky to make it [tomorrow].”
That must be nice, to be able to separate yourself from society so much that not only do you not know who the president is, but also people aren’t shouting it at you on the street. Anyway, for the rest of you, and especially Joe Chandler: Donald Trump is our next president. Welcome to reality.
