The meteorologist on television told me to prepare for the storm of the century, so like a dutiful follower I stocked up on foodstuffs and necessities. Alas, it was just a thunderstorm.

Damn, meteorologists seem to have less scientific backing than fortune tellers! I cannot believe I cancelled my weekend plans because of their forecast!

one of the few professions where you can be horrible wrong and still be able to keep your job...they usually make good side money from supermarkets and hardware stores by broadcasting phony weather alerts causing people to stampede aisles in search of a myriad of things they will never use in this lifetime...often blame their obscenely obvious mistakes on the unpredictabilty of a fictional character named "Mother Nature"
