People on the internet would rather continue to be hypocrites then admit they were wrong; more at 5.
Just a reminder, since this morning has been particularly trying.
Please don’t be an ass just because you can. Think about what you’re saying before you hit send. There’s a human being on the receiving end of that nasty message. How would you feel if you got the message you’re about to send? Angry, hurt, frustrated or disappointed? It’s easy to say you’d laugh it off, it’s a lot harder to actually do it.
If you wouldn’t wanna get that message or comment, don’t send it. Simple.
Agreed with nocakeno, perhaps you should practice what you preach. People have different circumstances, and unless you are physic (I know you aren’t), you don’t know a single thing about the person on the other end that you so viciously responded to. You don’t know how hard of a decision it was to give a pet away, or how difficult their situation is to warrant it. Not everyone has the luxury of “doing everything possible” - not everyone has a safety net. Someone giving up a pet to a shelter because they cannot provide for it (a big part of which is shelter) doesn’t mean they are doing so because it is “inconvenient”.
I hope you can see just how hurtful your words were when you look back at them. If you still stand by your nasty reply (seriously, “fuck you very much”?) I pity you.
