If I hear one more person, one more business, use this “horrible winter” as an excuse for anything, well, to be honest, my head will E-X-P-L-O-D-E!!!
I am fifty-five, m-f’ing years old and I have NEVER experienced a winter where no matter what happens – no mail, the cable is out, the moon fell out of orbit – WHATEVER – it has been blamed on “extreme weather conditions.” Listen, I get it – this winter has SUCKED big time, but I am a little tired of hearing that EVERY state has been plagued by “extreme weather conditions.” Sure, I am from Ohio – famous for horrible weather – but c’mon, people – IT IS MARCH! You should have at the very least fallen into some sort of “Extreme Weather Conditions Groove” by now.
So why am I so pissy today? Turns out a shipment of thirty-one light fixtures – 31 – scheduled to be delivered by “end of business today” by UPS Freight is STILL sitting in North Carolina, due, remarkably enough, to “extreme weather conditions” last weekend. I call BS on that. Listen – if you were one of the country’s “delivery giants,” would you not be prepared for bad weather? I mean, sure, this was taken from the Charlotte NC News Observer, but…
“Gov. Pat McCrory declared a state of emergency for North Carolina on Friday, hours after the latest winter storm left portions of the state coated in ice and in the dark because of power outages.”
