While couples cuddled as the snow came down in the Southeast this week, one Georgia County sheriff's office decided to cancel Valentine's Day.
"The Oconee County Sheriff's Office announces that Valentine's Day has been CANCELLED from a line North of I-16 to the Georgia/Tennessee border," the sheriff's office posted on their Facebook page.
But they didn't stop there, they then made it clear why they had called off the special day.
"Men who live in the designated 'NO VALENTINES DAY ZONE' are exempt from having to run out and buy lottery scratches and Hershey bars from the corner stores until February 18, 2014, due to ice, snow, freezing rain," the post continued.
The comical approach to keeping residents off the icy and slippery roads received over 1,000 shares and almost 1,000 likes.
