If you’re living under a rock and have no access to any form of media you should know that the DC metro area is expecting 1-2 FEET OF SNOW THIS WEEKEND. First of all, how the fuck is this possible? Second of all, did they really have to cancel my flight 2 days in advanced when we haven’t seen a flake of snow yet?
I was scheduled to fly out to Boston for a conference for which I’m going to be a slave to for 3 days, but when word of the HOLYSHITSNOWSTORM spread I knew things were going to hell in a handbasket. I really don’t know what the means, but I’ve heard white people say enough to know it’s not good.* So I am now scheduled to leave Union Station at 9am and take a train 6.5 hours with my 5′5, bald boss,whose voice sounds like this friendly dinosaur’s :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZZivl5iKCo. If I can find some Ambien before I leave I’ll be sure to chase those with a bottle of wine.
I just think it’s a little ridiculous that they are asking me to go out of my way to get to Boston when an honest to God blizzard is about to descend upon the DMV area. I don’t mind hard work (hence working a full-time job and slinging coffee to douchey Georgetown students on my weekends), but there is difference between dedication and pure insanity. The workforce is a weird and disillusioned place and my complaints only make me one of the many sheep that commute in the worst traffic every morning. Hopefully I’ll be lulled in complacency soon and stop coming to work disaffected and rageful.
