Friends in England had gifted me a round trip plane ticket for an 8 day vacation at their home this October. Sadly, I’ve had to decline the gift as I cannot find enough reliable caregivers to cover the 8 days. As I made this announcement on facebook, a person said “How in the hell are you going to England in your situation??”
Oh, of course, my bad. You think because I need help that I don’t deserve to accept gifts? Or is it that you don’t think I deserve gifts at all.
When I asked in response why he owned so many expensive sports cars, and why a man in his health was driving around in dangerous cars, he replied that he had worked hard and earned the money to buy those cars.
OH – I get it. You don’t consider me worthy because you don’t believe I’ve earned a vacation.
I blocked him – but his words hang there on a post – a warning to all.
You don’t speak to me like that.
