British people, seriously?

So the news tell us that it just snowed 5-15cm of snow in England and 3000 schools were closed, are you ***************** kidding me?!?!?!

Does anyone else find this pathetic?

I live in southern Finland and its -24C out there right now. After a quick conversion that gives me -11.2 Fahrenheit. Sometimes we get 30cm of snow a day.

That's just the way it goes - us Brit's get a bit of snow & it screws us up

The main reason we aren't prepared for it is because it doesn't happen that often. There's usually only a couple of days a year where we get snow like that, so it's not worth putting an infrastructure in place that can deal with it. The cost of that infrastructure would be more than the cost of shutting things down occasionally, so the benefits of setting ourselves up to deal with it just wouldn't pay off.

It would be kind of like preparing for floods when you live in a desert.

Yeah, mate., it never really snows here and when it does nobody wants to go to school or work, they want to be out in the snow having fun. So that's what we do...

Seems simple to understand.

It's worse when trains in Scotland are cancelled due to wind and rain.

My city's fucked whenever there's any amount of snow because it doesn't really happen often here. Makes enough sense to me.

5 cm of snow?

Germany laughs in your face, Britain. You sure have become severe pussies.

Meanwhile in the southern most part of Texas! : I don't get no snow.

And I also never got a free day off of school because of it. Those lucky 3,000 schools.

Also why did BeefWellington say it snows like that a few days a year. Who's lying?

Yeah, two of them have been this year and the year before...from like 2000, there was a pretty long gap where it didn't snow at all.

The biggest downside of living in Britain is having to live with the British.

Seriously, it gets annoying.

Real talk. DO NOT be a chilled out person at King's Cross in the morning. People are in a rush, will run in to you and will tut at you like it's your fault for not being in a mental frenzy.

People always talk about the British natural politeness.

Bitches, please, I'm from Germany. British natural politeness is drunken rage compared to our standards.
