Stupid Comment of the Week

I just have to share this, I am in just complete and utter awe about what comes from people's mouths. I had a co-worker tell me that she feels whites are less cold natured than blacks, and so are hispanics, because they are the same (as whites). She said it was true, she went out to smoke in the cold winter air with a co-worker and was freezing, and her co-workerinformed her it wasn't that cold, so now all non-black people are invicible to the cold weather.

::Segway into rant::

I am sorry, we live in Texas, we are not used to cold ass weather, white or black, unless you are a northern transplant, who will then commence to tell us how we don't know how to drive on ice, and everyone drives so slow on it. No shit sherlock!!!!! We are from Texas it sleets maybe once or twice a damn year, we don't have snow trucks, and no one clears the streets so we can go to work or to the mall or wherever the hell you think we are going. We shut down, stay home, and wait for the eight hours it takes for the sleet or snow to go away and start back to normal the next day. Go the hell back up North to where everything is better and the snow laden streets are cleared, go shovel your damn sidewalk with your -17 degree weather.

::end of rant, back to original topic::

Personally I am cold natured as well, I like cold, not sub-zero cold, but regular old cooler than 100 degrees. In Texas we don't have cold weather that much, which is probably why I like it, it is a change of pace. Maybe that makes me an oreo. Who the hell knows?
