You're right, we don't know how you feel or what kind of person you are. The only thing we have to base our opinion, is what you say. You made your own impression on us. Show your true character and Idk, maybe acknowledge your choice of words were shitty, and came off completely insensitive?
OP, you got shit over this because it was heartless. You can act all you want like we don't know you, but what you've shown of yourself isn't good. There is a very sad story with people who are dead, and you're just worried about your plans? This is like "Well, I WAS going to see a movie, but because of the shooting in the theater now I can't. Boohoo, poor me, my day is ruined!" Really?
How about you hug your child and be thankful that your plans were all that were ruined for today. Other people are not so lucky.
Did any of you ladies read that?
This entire story is just crazy and makes my stomach turn. :? :(
