"Snow day" rant

I would like to start off by stating that:

My sister is a teacher.
My brother-in-law is a teacher.
My mother-in-law is a teacher.
My mom and dad were teachers. (Recently retired.)
My brother-in-law’s mom is a teacher.
My cousin is a teacher.
My cousin’s husband is a teacher.
My aunt is a teacher.
Four of my close friends are teachers.

That said, I’m mad at all of you today.

I know you don’t control whether or not you get a day off of school. But, I think I’d have a much easier time on these kinds of days if I didn’t know all of you were sleeping in, staying nice and cozy in your homes.


Tangent...

What I really don’t get is, if 438 schools are closed just in WDIV’s viewing area due to the unbearable conditions, how is it that the wellbeing of college students is not taken into account.

I work at an “urban” university. A good portion of students here are known to take the bus in from cities as far as 30-40 miles. They wait at bus stops. They trek across our large campus. They are out in the cold far longer than most.

I just don’t understand. I want a snow day too.

Me too! Although on a side note, I think universities are afraid to close because a few years ago U of M had a snow day and some LOSER sued the university, saying it should reimburse all the students for their lost credit hours! I hope that kid got his butt kicked. Then repeatedly whitewashed and given a wedgie for good measure. :D
