EVEN small children have run out of patience with the snow, it has been confirmed.
Pre-adolescent children have traditionally responded to snowflakes with uncontrollable glee.
However, after three snow days in a row, followed by a full weekend of snow, eight year-old Stephen Malley, from Lincoln, said: “For fuck’s sake, this is just ridiculous.
“I can’t even be bothered to have the ‘make sure you keep your gloves on’ argument with my mum.
“Frankly, the whole thing has become a colossal pain in the arse.”
Meanwhile, people who voluntarily wear hats are also irritated, as freezing temperatures make stupid headwear more of a necessity than a statement.
Style blogger Donna Sheridan said: “What’s the point in going all the way to South America for a unique Peruvian Quechua cap with handmade flaps when everyone else is wearing a quite similar hat they bought from Sainsbury’s?
“I’ve been forced to stand out from the crowd by wearing two or three hats at once.”
