I'm cold just looking at you

Something I don't understand is the people who dress for summer during the winter. Short pants or capris, short sleeved shirts, or no jacket, or just a thin hooded sweatsuit. Like earlier today, this woman came onto the bus wearing capris and without a jacket of any kind.* It is negative 1 degree out there, and windy as fuck. What really got me was this:

1. She said she'd been waiting outside for an hour because, hiding out of the wind, the last bus had gone right by her.

2. She acted all surprised when telling about how this cop was threatening to take her to jail for endangering herself by being out in that cold. She gave a bunch of excuses like she'd been at a friend's house, it hadn't been that cold earlier in the day, etc. Here I'm thinking, "It wasn't much warmer earlier than it is now. The only real difference is that it wasn't windy earlier." It was cold enough earlier in the day that I was cold even bundled up. Now here we are, colder and windy as fuck, and I'm bundled up like an Inuit (eskimo) and still freezing my ass off. It's no fucking wonder the cop was threatening to take you in for self-harm! Personally, I think he's an idiot for not doing so despite your pleading. Or at least taking you home in his car.

Honestly, people, dress warmly. I'm cold enough as it is without looking at you running around half naked in sub-arctic temperatures.

* = The woman was overweight, but human fat is not the same kind of insulation as blubber. Besdies, she was not overweight enough to do her any good even if her fat was seal blubber.
