BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- A man in Georgia said he still does not know who the next president will be.

Joe Chandler of Brunswick, Ga., says he was so fed up with the election that he decided to go to bed on election night without finding out who won.

Chandler said he intended to find out who won the next morning -- but he felt so good he decided to wait. And now it’s been more than a week.

“I was invited to an election party to stay up into the night with everybody gnawing their nails, hanging on and I thought, oh there has to be a better way,” Chandler told WAGA in Atlanta.

“It is very peaceful in my bubble of ignorance."

Chandler works from home and has been very careful to avoid television, newspapers and social media.

Instead, his daughter keeps him up to date with the news of the world while avoiding finding out the result.

When Chandler goes out, he even walks around with headphones and a sign that says “I don’t know who won and don’t want to. Please don’t tell me.”

Chandler said he might be ready to find out soon.

“I am almost ready for somebody to put me out of my misery, but when they do, I have a feeling I might be stepping back into a world of even more misery,” Chandler said.
