Social dilemma – How do you decide if you have actually visited a state?

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma came from LisaAnn. It’s his email.

Hi Jaime. My colleagues and I knew we had to come see you after a conversation we had at the office. We were talking about where we’ve been in the United States, you know, which states and the total number. As we were going through our lists, suddenly certain rules were put in place. For example, I counted Illinois because I had a layover at O’Hare Airport in Chicago. But several of my colleagues said it didn’t matter because I was only at the airport. But I say that I was still in this state!! I simply did not leave the airport, but I stayed there for three hours! Others said it doesn’t count unless you sleep in the state. And even others said that crossing the state to get somewhere else didn’t count. I disagree 100% with all of this. I say if you’ve set foot in the state or driven in the state, you’ve been in the state. All that said, I’ve been, on my rules, in 32 states, plus Washington DC What do you think? How do you decide if you have visited a state? Do you follow my rules or do you follow the rules of my colleagues? I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks. Thank you very much, we listen to every day!

Well, I’m with LisaAnn one hundred percent. In fact, I’ve had this conversation with friends before. I say if you have set foot in the state, it counts as an in-state visit. But like LisaAnn’s colleagues, some of my friends don’t agree either.

So what do you think? How do you count whether or not you have visited a state? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
