I know I've complained about this before, but people in this town SUCK at driving in any sort of weather.
This morning was the first snow of 2006 in St. Louis. Not much, it just made the trees look pretty. It didn't even stick. But as soon as I saw the snow outside, I knew I had to leave for work early. I gave myself 40 minutes to drive the usual 25 minute route.
And it took 50.
Frankly, I wanted to ram every car on the road going 10 mph (especially those with big W stickers on them). Which was most of them - well, some of the dare devils were going 15. And... visibility was NOT impaired, there was no snow on the road, there was no ice, the road was just wet.
But the best surprise waited for me at work - why do people feel the need to wear their lovely 80s snowflake themed sweaters on days that it snows? Seriously, in the workplace, are we supposed to think that it's cute? Are we supposed to believe that it was just up in the rotation? I would have more sympathy for the sweater if it was worn on a non-snow day. But I'd have the most sympathy for the sweater if it was given to those starving children in Africa.
