Warning: This is a cranky lady rant.
I'm calling it Whiney Seattle.
Yup, whine...not wine - although there are some lovely spots to enjoy a glass of wine in the city.
Nope...I'm talkin' about all you Seattle whiners.
The northwest has experienced a really unusual weather pattern which has resulted in record snowfall. What are Seattleites doing? Whining... whining like little babies, grown men are on the news acting like a pathetic four year old, complaining about the fact the the city hasn't plowed the streets like they should. Poor little whiney Seattle men can't jump in their Beamers and drive to Starbucks every four hours...poor little sissy boys.
Carports are collapsing because Seattle men are too lazy to climb up a ladder and slide some snow off the roof. If you're stupid enough to park your vehicle under a structure that obviously wasn't built to handle a heavy snow load...uhhh...maybe you deserve a smooshed car.
While I'm giving you a little cranky lady smack down.
There aren't enough snowplows in the whole state to keep the Seattle city streets plowed, King county simply doesn't get enough snow to warrant keeping all of that equipment in their garages!
So, sissy whiny Seattle folks. Get off your duffs, pick up a snow shovel and quitcherbitchin'.
My own 75 year old mother has been shoveling her own sidewalks for the last week, she says it's really great exercise and she feels so proud of herself when she's all done.
I'm so proud of my mom.
I'm also proud of my husband, he's been up on the barn roof shoveling the snow. You won't catch a farmer whining about how nobody comes to shovel his snow for him.
I'm so glad I married a real man and not a sissy-city-whiney-lazy-bum.
