I think you’re being pretty harsh on people who have just had their lives, or close family’s lives, fairly devastated.  Just because they ignored the evacuation notice doesn’t mean they deserve everything that followed, which is what it sounds like you’re saying.  I get that weddings are a big deal and it hurts to feel like they totally dismissed it, but I’d try to be the bigger person here….  Congrats on your marriage! 🙂

@littlegreenleaf: This is really too bad, it’s just so terrible….and I understand that you’re feeling hurt over your wedding being grand-standed by Hurricane Sandy, that’s ok, really it is…but you’ve made a terrible mistake in expecting your new family members to prioritize your wedding over everything else they’ve got to handle just now…. in light of everything those poor people are dealing with, to post a non-specific FB burn to the “people” that dissapointed you, it was just asking for trouble.

I like to think the best of everyone, and in all honesty, events like this are very taxing on every level, I’m sure they would have been very interested in your wedding and all that they missed, had they been given the time to do that on their own….

I understand the way you feel, and that has got to hurt so badly, I would look to the holidays as a much needed opportunity to gather together and talk about your wedding, family and good things.

After all, it could have been so much worse, and it’s the time of year for forgiving and forgetting and being grateful for what we have.

I get why you’re upset but the fb post was a bit passive agressive and immature. You should have expressed your feelings directly to those who you were hurt by. i think you should forgive and move on to enjoy the holidays with them. Life’s too short.

Never post your problems on Facebook.  Ever.

@littlegreenleaf:  facebook statuses are *never* the answer. try and put yourself in their shoes – if you made a decision which youl felt was the best decision for your family in light of a natural disaster, and then you see a slightly snarky non-specific fb status that is clearly aimed at you and everyone of the guests who didnt attend. Honestly, thatd piss anyone off, i think the cousin was pretty restrained.

I do understand youre disappointed,and they should have contacted you. but, dont deal with issues via social media – it never ever ends well

@littlegreenleaf:  It’s okay, I think most of us are guilty.  I hate your situation, though.  And even if you are being selfish, I have to say that if it were me, I know I’d feel the exact same as you.

No one wants to read them, and they create more problems than they ever solve.

@SeaSalt:  I don’t know about everyone else, but I have a lot of ‘friends’ on Facebook hat are moreso acquaintances, and I would hate for them to look at my status updates and them just be me complaining about things in my life.  I try to make all of my posts happy/excited so that everyone will get that vibe of me as a person!  Laughing
