This American Is Going To Extreme Lengths To Avoid The Election Result


For the last ten days pretty much all most people have been talking about is Donald Trump’s surprise presidential victory. 

That is everyone, except for one guy who is happily going about his business without a clue about who is going to be running the U.S for the next four years, reports Elite Daily.

According to Fox 5 Atlanta, Joe Chandler from South Georgia was so fed up with politics he decided to ignore the election entirely.

So apparently, Joe went to bed on the night of the election planning to catch up on who had won in the morning – which to be quite honest, sounds like a smart plan.

However, when he woke up, he felt so happy, peaceful and carefree without knowing the results that he decided to wait a few hours before finding out.

And that few hours has now turned into a week and a half! Joe is still safely cocooned in his nice little bubble and doesn’t have the slightest clue who came out on top.


He told Fox 5: 

Having subtracted myself from this political fracas and all of the mayhem of the digital media, I kind of found the centre of the cyclone, it is very peaceful in my bubble of ignorance.

Which sounds awesome to be fair.

And how has Joe managed to avoid knowing so successfully? As he works from home drawing calendars (I love this guy) he says it’s quite easy as long as he avoids watching the news – although his daughter keeps him up-to-date on other stuff.


When he goes out he simply puts on headphones and wears a sign that says: 

I don’t know who won and don’t want to. Please don’t tell me!

Joe reckons he may be ready to find out who won next week, but in the meantime it seems ignorance really is bliss!
