I am so happy my friends would think this post was ridiculous.

Well this keeps getting better. I have spent less time on the bee over the past week or so because lately it feels more and more have been coming on here just to be mean to others.

For those of you who really are so concerned, put your money where your mouth is and set up a disaster relief fund in lieu of wedding gifts.

@RnbwznPuppies:  I think you’re taking this WAY over the top. It’s not about protecting the selfish. It’s about assuming the best of her intentions. Sure, it might not have been the best judgment to post this now, but I don’t think having this concern makes her any more selfish than anyone else. We all exercise bad judgment sometimes. She’s already been admonished. Why ride her ass about it? Everyone makes mistakes. You don’t even know her. Why assume the worst? I’m pretty sure OP will never do this again.

OP clearly lives in an area most impacted by the storm. Rather than vent ONE of what I am sure is her MANY concerns in the after math of the storm on an inappropriate forum (facebook, to family or friends cleaning up), she chose to use this APPROPRIATE forum.  

I am also in an area impacted heavily by the storm and have family and friends in all areas affected I see no issue with her venting about it (is it a bit premature to be extremely worried before seeing the damage? in my opinion, yes but she still has the right to worry.)  I’d love to know if the bees preaching to her even in areas affected?!

Despite the worst tragedies, life goes on.  I can bet most fellow bees aren’t dropping everything else important (or not important) in their lives because of this storm – regardless of where you’re located.

@jayebaby:  +1 however, I think her posting is no less “insensitive” to the storm victims or in poor judgement than any of us posting on a wedding forum about any wedding concern.

Wow. I am sicked by all of you. I have already donated money to disaster relief, though. Thanks for asking. 

We should all go post on the ring threads instead.

Dude, look at her first post where she said “I am lucky because we have power right now and other people don’t.”‘If that’s not perspective, I dont know what is! And for the love of God and everything holy, the OP lives in Brooklyn! We have no public transportation right now, there are trees down everywhere and everyone here has spent the past 24 hours going batshit crazy, so believe me – OP has perspective. And frankly, anyone who is posting in this thread from an area that is not affected by Sandy should be a little bit more considerate of what the OP is going through. People don’t always react to stressful situations in typical ways. I lived here on 9/11 and I had a friend call me that afternoon to see if I wanted to go shopping. On the surface, that sounds awful – who would think of shopping at a time like that? But she was shocked and traumatized. She needed a distraction from the chaos and horror surrounding us. She needed to not be alone. It didn’t come from a place of callousness but from a place of shock and trauma and horror and maybe a little bit of denial. So maybe we can all withhold a little bit of judgement on someone who just lived through a giant scary devastating event. 

For all we know, OP could be out right now volunteering at an evacuation shelter, getting groceries for her elderly neighbors or helping folks down the block clear fallen trees. It’s ridiculous to tell someone who is living through a crisis that she is being insensitive to post something on a wedding message board on the Internet.

@RnbwznPuppies:  Please calm down. I think you are getting unnecessarily upset. This has been a serious situation and everyone’s thoughts are with the victims. But we don’t have to vilify the OP for posting a concern.

@RnbwznPuppies:  I am sure that sickening feeling is mutual. I’d love to know who died and made you the moral guidepost of the world?! Those who disagree with you must be awful terribly immoral human begins.

I’m going to go ahead and close this thread as it’s not been productive regarding the OP or any of the topics diverging from the OP. I know we are all wishing the best for everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy!

The topic ‘flooding from sandy’ is closed to new replies.
