Valentine’s Day already passed. Millions of couples across the world celebrated the holiday of love in a special way. But the sheriff of Oconee County in Georgia named Scott Berry decided to completely cancel the happy couples holiday just a few days before the 14th of February.
By his pronouncement everyone living in Georgia, north of the Interstate 16 who is obligated to take a drive in order to buy a gift for his spouse is banned from doing so. The ingenious county sheriff posted a warning on the police department’s Facebook page that the northern parts of Georgia are officially “NO VALENTINE’S DAY ZONE”. Apparently all police men were exempt from having to buy Valentine’s gifts for their women due to the heavy snow storm, freezing rain and icy roads.
Later the sheriff admitted that he posted the message all in the name of fun. Sheriff Berry decided to lift up the spirits of his colleagues at the department after they were stuck inside the building for over 34 hours. The sheriff successfully cut the monotony and the boredom inside his department.
