The universal reaction.

(I didn't take this. I stole it from some guy in Hoboken, NJ who apparently doesn't know how to write a's.)

So, yesterday afternoon I was standing in line at Wal-Mart. I should probably mention that yesterday was the fourth straight snow day in our county, so I was there with my kids who were being obnoxious. And everyone else was also there with kids who would normally be at school, and they didn't seem to be any happier about it than I was. So, anyway, I was standing there and my phone rang. It was the school district calling to alert me that school would be canceled again today--day five of snow days.

I let out an audible groan and said something along the lines of, "You've got to be frigging kidding me."

A few seconds later I heard another phone ring. And then I heard the person say, "This is f!@#ing ridiculous!"

I couldn't be sure, but I suspected they had just received the same call I had.

And then another phone rang. And this time I heard, "Dammit. We're moving to Florida. I can't take this anymore."

Again, I can't be certain, but if I were a betting woman, I'd bet that was the school district calling.

And yet another phone rang, which was followed by, "F!@# you, Montgomery County."

Ding ding ding! We have a winner!
