When I was a freshman in high school my neighbor was crowned Homecoming King. In fact most of the guys who grew up on my street had been on Homecoming court, so obviously I had to make sure I would too. Each year a new court was appointed and I got closer to my chance.
When I came back from summer vacation for my senior year it was time to go to work. I had to make sure to go to work immediately. Step one be fucking nice to all the seniors, especially people who were my friends at the time and formerly friends. Who better to vote for you than someone who already likes you? Step two make trades, it’s simple really you tell someone you’ll vote for them if they’ll vote for you. Then you make sure you both promise to keep it to yourself and you’re set.
