You seem to be under the impression that it is spring now. It is not spring. It is February. Technically, spring does not begin until March 20. This means that people need winter clothing until then.
Specifically, I need boots. Black leather riding boots. But I cannot find any because all the shoe stores are selling sandals instead. Sandals! In February! In Chicago! Surely you can understand the pure idiocy of this. Today's high is 39 degrees, and it's supposed to snow next week. Does that sound like sandal weather to you? If it does, you're probably currently dying of pneumonia.
I want to buy things from you, Fashion Industry. I want to give you my hard-earned money in exchange for something to put on my body. Why won't you let me?
Thank goodness for the internet and free shipping.
