Ok, not really YOU people. Yet again, the butting in and the comments that I should screw my school over. I don't care WHAT Religious Jews think. A real friend doesn't suggest that someone skip classes to travel an unnecessary distance for yontiff. UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!
Ok, so, I put up a FB status asking if anyone ***IN BROOKLYN*** can host me for any of the yontiffs that start on Wednesday. This schmuck from Queens sends me a nasty message reacting as if I asked him directly. I thought Jewish parents were big on making sure their kids were well socialized? Wouldn't a socialized person see that this was not directed at them and thus maybe they should, oh, I don't know, mind their own business.
Then he started telling me he would find me somewhere. He came back with Monsey. MONSEY. For starters, I wasn't asking him. I was trying to ask all the people I know but, barely know from Brooklyn. I mean I even stated that the statement was for Brooklyn people. I don't want to deal with people I don't know at all. Most of my experiences, as my regualar readers are aware, haven't been so positive. Somewhere in here, "we're all talking about you and worried" slipped into the conversation. Since when did the Torah permit lashon hara?
I was trying to go to Brooklyn because I have very little time to commute home after my last class erev yontiff, otherwise, there's absolutely no reason why I can't stay home. When I explained this, this is where the line was crossed. I got all these nasty comments about how I converted Orthodox and if he was in my shoes he would have missed class (all day to commute up to Monsey?) because the Jewish holiday is more important.
Now, we're not talking about yontiff itself. I intentionally didn't even consider a Tues Thursday schedule this semester because of yontiff. We're talking about me taking away from my schooling so that I can spend more travel time than I need to get to my home to go to someone who will probably be really mean to me. UGGGG!!!
Oh, yeah, and did I mention by getting involved in this, he's not minding his own business?
Finally, if one more person tells me to try that AWWWWWFUL See you on Shabbos, I'm gonna scream.
