Sympathy

CuteDee CuteDee
Am I alone in feeling NO sympathy for people who bring trouble upon themselves? I get so upset when people do not take responsibility for their actions. Im not talking about huge things... I just cant feel sorry when someone eats a whole pizza and now their stomach hurts. Or they get mad and kick the door and now their foot hurts. Or bad grades equal punishment. Isnt all of this COMMON SENSE?? Or am I just being a bitch?

Tell me your worst unsympathic story...

I find myself getting annoyed with a lot of people posting on Fetlife about troubles (all subs talking since I'm not in any dom-specific groups). Too many chicks complain about some fault of theirs that made them lose a dom, and then ask for advice on how to avoid the fault when the dom gives them a second chance (one chick was always bratty about little things their dom ordered her to do.) My advice? If you can't stop being bratty and your dom doesn't like it, go find another dom that is ok with it; some people just aren't suited for each other!

There was also one chick that got in a nasty fight with her dom about her hanging up without asking permission. Her kid was hungry and wanted some food, and the chick hung up without even saying why; then, when the dom got mad at her, she went on a tirade about how her kid is more important than a stupid rule. If the kid was crying for some unknown reason, I'd understand, but just breaking the rule because the kid is hungry? If you want to do that, don't tell your dom he's unreasonable for getting mad. I'd at least try asking permission, I think I can trust my guy to let me hang up for such a reason and call back later (and kids shouldn't be hungry enough to die of starvation in the 5 seconds it takes to ask for permission.)

I think that was my worst unsympathetic story. There was one girl who, in my opinion, overreacted at her guy for not texting when he went to go see his kid (his phone was dying and he didn't charge it before leaving, then fell asleep at the kids' house), but I have sympathy for the worry she felt. I just think a big fight over such a thing isn't really necessary.

I had a coworker who'd go out and get drunk on nights before she had work the next morning, then spend the day complaining about her hangover. Seriously, you knew you had work, so why'd you go out drinking? I wouldn't even mind that, so long as you didn't whine about the hangover you knew was coming.

I wouldn't mind so much if it was more like, "Sorry if I'm not at my top game. I got drunk and now I'm not feeling too hot. That's my fault." Even just acknowledging it makes it less annoying for me - I understand that it can be hard to turn down a good time. But nope, she just moped about it.

Oh, you're certainly not alone. At least, not on the little things. But I don't really get overly annoyed that this, I just mock them. It's fun!

Hmm. No stories of my own come to mind at the moment, but I do have a story about a teacher friend of mine. Basically, she told her kids that one essay would count a lot towards their final grade, and usually that's not how it's done at her school, but she does it like that anyway. She told her kids that fact repeatedly, yet a good number of her kids didn't bother with the essay, and got no marks - and then whined that they hadn't been told!

Replace she with he and that is my workplace. He goes out drinking every night and he always come to office to complain about his hangovers because I am the only other person under 40 in our department. I just want to strangle him every time he speaks to me because he makes my life miserable. He never comes in before 11 am, then he takes a two hour lunch break at 1, and most of the time you can find him asleep at his desk. Since I am the newest person in the department I get stuck with all of his work and I don't get paid any extra for doing it. I know they are never going to fire him because his father is a partner, but I wish they would move him to his father's department and force him to deal with it.
