The classic election fatigue has officially hit Sioux Falls and people are feeling completely lost on what they should argue about now.

“It’s really hit me hard. I was arguing with people for about 8 hours a day when you think of internet and in-person arguing. Now I don’t know what to argue about,” said one citizen we spoke with.

Many citizens have already started to look forward to November, but it’s unclear the extent of arguing that will happen over the summer months.

“I don’t really want to argue over summer, but if it comes down to it, I’m not afraid to. I’m always down to delete Facebook friends who disagree with my views,” said another citizen we spoke with.

Medical offices in the region have also reported increased numbers of “human shells” or “people without purpose”.

“Since the election has finished, we’ve really taken a turning point in what we’re seeing here in the office. People just don’t have purpose in life nowadays,” said a doctor we spoke with.

Citizen arguing hit all-time highs the weekend before the runoff election, but was only second to election night.

“We tend to see the argument spikes weekends beforehand. People think they can change other’s minds the weekend before they vote. The human mind is exceptional most of the time, but when it comes to politics, it’s at the other end of the spectrum,” said the doctor.

Looks like we will have to revert back to east side vs. west side arguing once again.
