Do you know what Boston-area people are really sick of right now? Snow. There has been lots and lots of snow the past month. Too much snow—and this isn’t your everyday winter fatigue talking. We have a very good reason to be done with snow here in Boston. New England suburbs and cities are cramped enough without 7+ feet of snow. Snow currently occupies every parking space in city, traffic couldn’t be worse, and the MBTA (public transportation for the Greater Boston area) will not be able to operate at full capacity for close to a month. Bostonians are taking it on the chin, and there’s only so much more this we can take.
…And it’s not even a joke.
I’m not one to laugh, too hard, at other people’s misfortunes. In fact, unless someone’s smart fortwo ends up in a river, I’m actually pretty compassionate. But I think my level of compassion for people tapers as their bank accounts rise.
Do I feel bad for the unemployed family man who gets his only car stolen? Of course. Do I shed a tear for the blonde driving the Bentley who smashes into a number of other exotic supercars? Ummm… no. Well, maybe, but the tear will come at the sight of an injured Aston Martin and not for the loaded socialite who caused an exotic automotive Armageddon.
