Woo hoo! Blizzard of 2006! It's here. It's now. It's forever.
Blizzard conditions always bring out the worst in New York City residents. I thought we were supposed to be some of the toughest people. Wasn't that mantra thrown around after 9/11? Dude, we get so panicked over a simple blizzard. Um, people... you'll survive. You don't need 3 cases of water. Nothing shuts down in NYC. NOTHING. The Korean bodega on the corner will be open. Yeah, you'll spend a bit more for your food but, hey, if it is the end of the world, what the fuck are you going to do with that money? I say, spend it.
The store was a mad house last night. We actually had to shut it down at one point because we were so full. There was a line outside the store from the moment we opened until we closed.
Here's what I would like to know: why the hell would you stock up on so much food for a blizzard that will maybe keep you at home for two days, maximum? I mean, the City has never been shut down. Sure, certain things will run out (milk, eggs, bread) but there is still going to be food to be had. Calm the fuck down! Remember, you are supposed to be some of the toughest people around. You're acting like a bunch of pussies.
And, by the way, when stocking up on necessities, $21.99 Raw Honey is not part of the list. Later.
