ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY Social Dilemma came From LisaAnn. This is her email.
Hi Jaime. My coworkers and I knew we had to come to you after a conversation we were having in the office. We were talking about where in the United States we’ve traveled to, you know, what states, and how many overall. As we were going through our lists, suddenly there were certain rules being put into place. For instance, I counted Illinois because I had a layover at O’Hare Airport in Chicago. But several of my coworkers said that didn’t count because I was only at the airport. But I say I was still in that state!! I just didn’t happen to leave the airport, but I was there for three hours! Others were saying it doesn’t count unless you slept in the State. And even others said driving through the state to get somewhere else doesn’t count. I disagree 100% with all of that. I say if you have stepped foot in the state or driven in the State then you have been in the State. All that being said, I have been, by my rules, in 32 States, plus Washington D.C. What do you think? How do you decide if you’ve visited a State? Do you go by my rules, or do you follow the rules of my coworkers? I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks. Thanks so much, we all listen everyday!
Well, I am with LisaAnn one hundred percent. In fact, I’ve had this talk with friends before. I say if you have stepped foot in the state then it counts as visiting the state. But like LisaAnn’s coworkers, some of my friends disagree as well.
So what do you think? How do you count whether or not you’ve visited a state? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
