Open Letter to Obama

Obama, we’re in a fight. You know I love you, I’ve supported you through a lot – I even went to the Mall for you in the freezing cold. I danced around in celebration of you. I’ve basically been your biggest fan. But ever since you made fun of DC’s reaction to the snow, I’ve been mad.

Today should have been my get-off-work-free day, my spend-the-day-in my-jammies-in-front-of-DVR’d-Grey’s-Anatomy SNOW DAY, but instead, those big shots at the Office of Personnel Management had to go and prove to you that DC can handle this snow by only putting us on a 2 hour delay. OPM, I’ll have you know it’s still snowing, Arlington didn’t do poo to clear away the snow, and I stumbled my way down Clarendon to the delayed Metro and I’m pissed.

All I want to do is be at home petting my cat and eagerly awaiting the most dramatic season finale of The Bachelor EVER. But instead I’ve got on my Bean Boots and battled the sideways snow to get to work so I could plug away at expense reports instead. Thanks, Obama. Thanks. I do not consider this reinvigorating the economy. I’m uninvigorated, I’ll have you know.  You should please call the OPM and tell them you reconsidered your view on snow, and will let DC have our snow days back. Srlsy.

Love you, mean it. <3,  Katie.

PS. Call me, and we’ll chat about how you can make it up to me. I don’t know if you noticed or not, but I like to eat good food like coughEquinoxcough, just like you do. Kthanksbai.

  1. When Tom and I get the subpoena from the Secret Service demanding contact information for our “crazy stalker write” I’m not even going to need to read the name to know who they mean…

  2. ha. this is awesome. i feel the same way, katie! and radman, although that’s not katie’s dog, i feel pretty confident that the pup is safe and sound inside.

  3. As much as I’d love to have snow days like I did before college- it’s not happening. I’m more annoyed at the DC area’s complete and utter lack of preparation for a Ragnarok-flavored snow cone that we’ve been expecting for days. I hear that beltway wasn’t that bad this morning, but I wouldn’t know- I wasn’t able to get out of my parking lot until nearly noon.

  4. Aw Don, stop sending the Secret Service to me. I’m tired of telling them that its really you driving the shady panel van.
