@mrsztobee:  it sounds a little flippant to me, like the person is making light of the accident.  I’m not sure I would post such a status unless it was accompanied by ‘thankfully everyone’s okay’

My first thought was that it’s somewhat insensitive.

@mrsztobee:  My first thought is “WELL WAS EVERYONE OKAY??????”  Otherwise how dare you complain about your inconvenience.

@mrsztobee:  I guess I’m reading it differently. It seems to me the person is thanking their lucky stars that they weren’t the one who had this obviously horrific accident.

@mrsztobee:  Hmmm super insenstive!!!! Maybe she didn’t mean it that way, but it sure comes across as such.

@mrsztobee:  Sounds like someone is seriously desperate for attention, even if it stems from a negative situation. How sad.

It comes off as insensitive to me too.  Nobody likes having to wait in traffic due to an accident, but it happens and hopefully everyone involved was okay.  It is a little weird that she posted pics of some stranger’s wrecked car to her FB too.

I have been pretty rattled after being passed by someone leading a high speed chase by the cops and watching them lose control and collide with cars in front of me. That status isn’t far off from how I felt, and I can see someone wanting some support from their social network after something like that. While it wouldn’t occur to me to share it on Facebook, I did relate the story to my family in similar terms. I don’t think it’s neccessarily attention-desperate. It’s what’s on her mind and people post what’s on their mind for their friends to see.

Accidents you see can be just as upsetting as accidents you’re in, is what I mean.

It comes off as insensitive, but I would assume they’re a bit in shock of what happened. 

And also, we all just have different ways of processing scary things. I know I’ve definitely made some jokes about certain explosions/attacks that affected my daily routine in Afgahnistan. It doesn’t make me jerk, it’s just the way I (and many of my friends) process crazy stuff.

How dare those people have an ACCIDENT and inconvenience her! Ugh! So rude of them to do that!

No really, I hope everyone is okay. That seemed so insensitive of your FSIL.
