It's the end of the world as we know it...

Politics, philosophy, the law, current events, left leaning debates, religion, baseball, football, pop culture, growing up Greek, random events in my life...whatever hits my mind at the time.

Fuck this white shit

I pay to have my snow removed. Up to twice daily, at two inches of snow. This is very important to me because I hate to be cold. I wear layers when the weather falls to 50 degrees. I've been to Arizona in August and not complained one word. Same with Greece. It can never be too warm - it can always be too cold. Everyone gets one season to bitch about it, and this is mine. I have days where I'll walk into my car in my garage, drive to work, and park in our heated garage below the building, then leave work and pull back into my garage. During this time, I never see outside. Well, I see it, but I never feel outside. This is the only way I will continue to live in Northeast Ohio.

However, the service that I have paid to have my snow removed for the winter, in a word, sucks. As far as I can tell, they come once a day if I'm lucky. Right now, I'm stuck inside my house because I can't get out of my driveway. Not only has it snown a billion inches since they last came (or, maybe 8 inches. But a billion sounds better for purposes of this story), but also, my road HAS been cleared in this time. Know what happens when a road is cleared? The snow all ends up at the ends of driveways.

This doesn't affect me, except when said driveway is mine. Which it includes. Which means that Christmas is going to be cancelled because I can't go out Christmas shopping. Spare me the "if you started a few weeks ago" shit. I'm trapped in my house. I don't even own a shovel to manually do that (I typed that sentence as if the lack of a shovel was what prevented me from shoveling my own drive. I hate the cold. THAT is what prevents it.)

Now the normal response is, "call the snow service and bitch. We know you. You are perfectly capable of bitching when something is not to your satisfaction." Well, yes, but...

Like the circle of life, now we are to the reason I have pay for the snow service. I don't do outside in the winter. Their telephone number is outside on the poles they stick up so that they don't run over my grass or something like that. So I can't get their numbers because I'd have to go outside.

See the dilemma?
