Northern Small Talk

Posted in Comics by Emily on February 27, 2014

cold enough for ya?

Is this a snowy-climate thing that for some reason I never heard in Minnesota? I might think it’s one of those sorta patronizing things middle-aged men say to young women doing physical work, but I’ve heard it from all kinds of people. Just replaces “good morning” this time of year, I guess.

    I’ve gotten “Looks like you’re having fun!”, on the third day of shoveling out, to which I am proud to say I did /not/ respond with shovel-themed violence. But the norm here seems to be for passing pedestrians to say “thank you” to anyone shoveling a sidewalk.

      “Thank you” makes so much sense. Or just “hi.” People’s need to add some extra small talk is funny. Congrats on avoiding the violence!
