I’m calling it right now.
To: All you hardy New Englanders making noise about other New Englanders making noise about the snowstorm.
Look, people freak out about the weather. They freak out about the snow. They freak out about the cold. They freak out about the hot. They freak out about the rain. They freak out about the lack of rain. It’s not just weather either. Any event that is happening to a large group of people is going to cause some percent of that population to freak out. And you know what? Another percent of the population is going to stand on the side of the that group and they’re going to ridicule them for freaking out.
This is no loner acceptable behavior. It’s over. Right now. This has to end. It’s possible you didn’t know how many of your acquaintances freaked out about weather and such before Facebook Status Updates and Twitter, but you’ve seen television news, right? Who do you think the reporter on the side of the road in the parka and mittens was talking to? Who do you think was watching all that stock footage of plows and sanders rolling out of the DPW yard? This is how people are. People like getting worked up about things and getting fired up about them getting fired up isn’t going to make them not be fired up next time. Believe it. And you better know I’m serious if I’m using a euphemism that involves sharks. I hate sharks.
