It's going to snow again, seriously?
A few weeks ago, the thought of a snow day off from work sounded awesome. Now, the thought of being stuck in your apartment with an empty Netflix queue and no more money for booze makes you want to sob.
Oh, this is bullshit.
We agree, Olympic figure skater Ashley Wagner — this IS bullshit.
And I am not impressed.
You’re pretty pleased with yourself, aren’t you winter? Well, I think you’re stupid.
Everything is frozen.
The ice on the ground is nothing compared to your frosty toes that never seem to warm up. No matter how high you crank that heater, it’s not going to be able to beat back epically cold temperatures. And it’s not like you could afford the electric bill anyway.
You're out of booze.
Drinking all your stockpiled cheap rum and boxed wine sounded like a good plan before the weather decided to stick around for the for-freaking-ever. Being out of booze makes being cold completely unbearable, so go find someone who’s made better choices than you and isn’t out of sauce.
You're tired of takeout.
Go to the grocery store in this terrible weather? Absolutely not. You kind of feel bad for making the takeout delivery guys schlep your food across town, but not bad enough to stop ordering it. Still, if you have one more container of shitty fried rice, you’re going to absolutely lose it.
You hate your roommates.
Being cooped up in a 500-square-foot apartment with two other stir-crazy people for days on end is enough to send any rational person into a violent rampage. You’ve never quite noticed exactly how annoying your boyfriend’s tooth-clacking is, but now it’s front and center and will probably cause you to break up.
You're resentful of people in warmer climes.
Screw you, California. I’m sitting in front of a heater, wearing pajamas, and wrapped in a blanket that’s kind of smelly, and you fools are sitting on the patio? No. You all deserve to suffer like the rest of us.
And you're just generally in a terrible mood.
Cold weather makes literally zero people cheery and happy. Maybe Santa Claus, but he isn’t even a real guy. Everything from getting on the subway to walking into your apartment is awful and sucks, and your face shows it.
Unfortunately, you're probably going to be stuck with the cold for a while longer.
This polar vortex isn’t showing any signs of letting up any time soon, so you might as well just get used to being indoors. The outside has plans to be terrible forever. Maybe it will never be warm again.
Your tears will do you no good. Mother Nature obviously doesn’t give a damn about our feelings.
Guess it's time to mainline ice cream and wine.
There’s nothing you can do about it, except eat your feelings. The additional calories will provide warmth when you inevitably need to venture out for toilet paper.
At least we're all in this together.
You aren’t the only one suffering. We’re all miserable. Take a little comfort in that, or just avoid public places in general.
