This is to all the born-in-this-country customers who were in my store today. You know who you are.

Yes, we do live in the Deep South of Canada.

But it is still CANADA.

It is WINTER.

We have SNOW.

So why in all of flaming hell's bells did you wait for today's snowstorm to hit before rushing out to buy salt / snow shovels /snow-blowers ... eh????

I'm sure they didn't but ... unless you just moved here last summer, you KNOW this is coming. I'm sure these are the same people who go looking for air conditioners in July.

"... but, but... I didn't NEED it last week/month/3 months ago."
"It only snowed really bad LAST YEAR."
"You mean it does this EVERY year? *eyes goggle and glaze* But it was so NICE out"

I'd throw in a rant about how it's all some sort of scheme to screw SCs out of their money and/or make them freeze/slip, but... there's enough stories around already, just change a couple names around.

Part of me wants to say that some people were out shopping to replace things that were broke or wore out because even if you think you're prepared for an event things can still go wrong and you'll be out at the same time everyone else is for the same thing. But...we all know that 99% of people forget that it snows in winter or gets hot in summer. So to the one guy who needs a replacement shovel, sorry that you have to fight off the unprepared crowd of idiots.

"Know"? What is this word? Here's the thought process I imagine.

You have died of an acute case of shovelbutt. Maybe next time, you'll put the shovel back into your pocket where it belongs, hmm?

Yep...every time there's the threat of snow in the forecast (even if it's just a dusting that will be removed by Mother Nature inside of a few days), we get the obligatory run on snow shovels and rock salt. :rolleyes: Same thing with fans and air conditioners when a heat wave rolls through in July/August. You people KNOW when the hot/cold weather is coming, every fucking year, so why wait until the last minute every time? It's not like snow shovels and rock salt are going to go bad, so why not stock up in November, before it really starts to accumulate? And, if it turns out to be an unexpectedly mild winter, just save that shit until NEXT year.

To be fair, I've done this myself as I've brought the fan down from the attic (where it is stored with a black sack over it to keep it from getting dusty/damp) only to discover that the fan that worked fine when it went up is now broken.

The snow shovels and grit, though? No excuses.
