Several years ago, two guys that that I went to school with were killed in a single vehicle accident. They were driving more than twice the speed limit and their blood alcohol levels were both nearly 3X the legal limit. Every year, on their birthdays and the anniversary of the crash, people on FB post sappy rememberances of them. Yes, it is sad but am I am bitch for feeling like this is a bit strange? When I hear about people who die because of their own drinking and driving I think “I am glad they killed themselves instead of some innocent person/people.” I had a friend who was killed by a drunk driver and I just can’t muster up and sympathy for these guys.

One of my very close friends died very recently at the hands of a drunk driver. He was driving a truck up the freeway ramp, going the wrong way. Honestly, if he wanted to kill himself, he should have just done it. Why did he have to take my wonderful friend with him? I have no sympathy for him or his family at all. I’m ANGRY as hell. She left behind her little 5 year old son, who is just adorable, and I hope he knows how wonderful his mom was.

I understand what you mean. But at the same time, two young people still lost their lives and that’s sad.

@MrsFuzzyFace: i feel sorry for the family for the loss, but i have to agree with you. as someone who lost a brother to a drunk driver, i can’t muster up enough sympathy for the person, only the family.

I don’t think you are a bitch for thinking that. It isn’t like you are posting those thoughts on these peoples’ walls or something!
It is sometimes hard to remember that even people who do stupid, dangerous stuff have/had people who love them and like to recall the good stuff about them.

Honestly, I think its a little bitchy of you ( since you asked). I can see your point of view, but those people who made a terrible mistake still had friends, mothers, fathers, grandparents, and were still deeply loved. Also, I question how old these two were. Young people tend to think they are invincible sometimes, and just haven’t lived enough to know rights from wrongs. Thank goodness no innocent people were hurt. But I don’t think they deserved to die.

I dont think your being a b*&%h for feeling like that but I do think that sometimes we are angered by the way people act and choose to live selfishly like drinking and driving. I agree with MrsCoachBtoBee that you should still have sypathy maybe not for the guys that passed but for their family and friends that lost them. They were people and people that others cared for and I am sure miss.

I think it’s just sad all around. Of course, they are responsible for what happened to them- and they also risked other peoples lives for their reckless behavior which is awful.
Its sad that their families have to suffer, and it’s sad that they made such awful choices in their lives.

I do feel terrible for the friends and family. It is a shame to have people killed because of the foolishness of their own youth. It just angers me because my kids travel on these streets and it scares me.

Can I say yes?? You asked.
My prom date junior year was drinking and driving, wrecked his car and died. Was he at fault? Absolutely. Does that make me miss him and mourn him any less? Get real. Absolutely not. He was 17, he made a mistake, and it cost him his life. While I wish he hadn’t have done something so stupid, I still don’t think it’s ‘strange’ to mourn his death. Death is still sad, regardless of the circumstances.

I can see what you mean. It pisses me off too that people drink and drive without any regards to others. My own relative told me how she got in accidents because she was drunk. I get really mad, because I was driving late at night sometimes, going to baseball, comming from work, and even driving with my son sometimes, being a safe cautious driver, and people have no sense of responsibility when they drink and drive. It is very upsetting.

@anglang25: exactly what you said.

You are entitled to feel how ever you want. But if you don’t like those posts, than you really should have them blocked.
It’s clear that you were not friends with these guys, so no you don’t need to offer sympathy. Just keep in mind, if you lost a love one, no matter how they died, you would be upset and miss them.

Yes. People make mistakes, but not all of them lose their lives because of it. It is very sad when a young person does.

@MrsFuzzyFace: I think it might be kinda bitchy. I feel like we all make mistakes and some get away with them and some don’t. I can understand not liking drinking and driving and being resentful towards it since you lost a friend but others should be allowed to remember them.
