Federal Workers’ Reactions for Today’s Two Hour Delay

When OPM announced that the Federal Government would open on a two hour delay on Wednesday for inclement conditions, federal employees took to Facebook to show their disdain.

01

And boy did they have a lot to say about it:

02

GASP! Now we have to have a plan for our children if schools are closed?!?! What on Earth are we going to dooooooo?!?!?!?!?

03

Is that a threat?

_______________________________________________________________

04

Of course, because OPM is responsible for the idiocy of the general public.

05

Replace “Roads” with “Drivers”.

06

::tears:: :“(

07

More traffic than normal? What kind of traffic is normal around the DC region???

_______________________________________________________________

08

The President has been notified that countless lives were taken this morning in what has been called the largest traffic catastrophe ever. Wait a minute, that never happened.

09

Because self-accountability is so passé.

10

This person left out fire and brimstone, sharknados, and zombies.

11

Impassible. Impossible.

_______________________________________________________________

12

But you would have also failed. Do you know what failure is? Or does that word mean nothing to you because you believe the government is your caregiver and everyone deserves a trophy?

13

SLIDING EVERYWHERE?!?!?

_______________________________________________________________

All this for about 5-7 inches of snow (on average) a day after the Federal Government closed for the pending storm. I know I may come off as a jerk but here’s the thing. Why is the government responsible for our mistakes? Is it really necessary to blame anyone but ourselves for being ill-prepared? It snows in the DC region sometimes. Sometimes we get a dusting. Sometimes we get several inches (rarely a foot). Having a backup plan for childcare and having a winter-ready vehicle are things that everyone should be doing. Stop trying to make up excuses to not go into work because of your laziness. Although I am not a federal employee, my job goes by what OPM says. I work in Washington, DC and had no issues driving in from Lorton, VA (20 miles south of DC) this morning.
