Just Like Every Year

Okay guys, I want everyone to listen to me carefully. The white stuff on the ground outside, it's snow. Now wait, hold on, don't panic. It's just snow. This happens every year. I know, it's kind of cold out and the snow and ice are slippery but it's going to be okay. You don't have to go to defcon 4. Really.
I also know that many of you drive, which is what I really want to talk to you about. The snow is not, has not been and will never be an excuse for driving like a bunch of lobotomized chimps. I can't imagine why (especially when you're driving a giant gas hog, wide assed, extendacab 4x4 truck) driving 20 kph down one of the busiest streets in the city would seem like a good idea. It's Novemeber, what the hell are you going to do com February when we're up to our asses in snow and there are very few surfaces not covered in black ice?
And just for the record, driving like it's July does not make it July. Okay? I realize that the geriatrics and the morons are aggrivating. I know you have places to be. But driving like an asshole isn't fixing the problem. Could you at least pretend like you understand what "slippery" means?
All I ask is that people try and drive like they actually know what they're doing. It's really not that hard. Is it?

Snow? Sorry, we don't get any down here. Bwahahahahaha!

Oh! I know what slippery is! It's me after I masturbate.

Yeah, well Mr. "We don't get any snow", you know what everyone is doing up here when the weather gets cold, don't you?

Well... that was highly disturbing, Mr Fabulous.

On a different note, I completely concur with your assessment, Gwenhwyfar. There is nothing more irritating than the first few weeks after the first snow. It's like people forgot we lived in Canada and it might snow again.

B, I figure it's like trauma victims forgetting everything that happened just to help them cope.

I never thought of it that way. I just thought it was stupidity. Hmmm.

You're right, I have entirely too much faith in people.
