Facebook Status...

So, my best friends sister posted a fb status that said " dear oil spill: thanks for ruining my vacation. I hate you."

She is 20. And concerned about her VACATION?? It sucks, but the Eco-system of the Gulf is AT RISK! And people are losing their jobs! I commented and told her this and that I thought she was being selfish! What's your take on her status?

  • I think we all understand the seriousness of the the situation, but it has also ruined vacations. What's your point?

  • Okay, well more background, this girl isn't concerned about anythin other than her vacation, and her parents will send her somewhere equally, if not, nicer. I just think its selfish that her only concern is her vacation. I should have posted more background information. She basically thinks the world revolves around her.

  • She's 20 and it's on FB, it doesn't mean she doens't understand the seriousness of the situation, but for many FB is about frivolous things.

  • It's just hard to explain. I guess if y'all knew her like I do, it would make more sense.

  • At age twenty, many are quite shallow and only think of how things effect them. I think she needs to grow up and realize what is important. Obviously, the Oil Spill is more devastating and more important than her vacation issues. She is a cry baby, at the very least.

  • LOL not everyone believes in the BS Al Gore feeds us. I am sure its gonna be ok. The world survived the Lakeview Gusher, Gulf War oil spill, Ixtoc I oil spill, and it will survive this one. If you are so concerned I would LOVE to see your pics of you and your dawn dish soap helping out!

  • @gertie:

    that's what I was getting at. I'm only 21,but I am married and have a child, so I guess I think about things differently than she does. She just only worries about how something affects her. Always has.

    What does Al Gore have to do with the Oil SPill? LOL. BP ...British Petroleum ...is responsble for the oil spill which will kill the fish and birds in the water and it is creeping eastward . They say it will be heading east and up the Atlantic coastline. And that is no big deal? Ha. Crissy, do you not watch the NEWS?
