Whenever you take a vacation and then decide to share photos or videos via social media you will have one of your pals say one of these gems…
I wish I could afford a vacation.
Well, maybe if you weren’t so terrible with your budget you could. This is the worst kind of comment because they are trying to add a guilt trip leg to your itinerary. I get it, some can’t afford vacations, but you shouldn’t try to make others feel bad for enjoying themselves.
Put me in your suitcase
That’s impossible and illegal. Plus you might die of suffocation in the overhead compartment.
Drink an alcoholic beverage for me
That’s also impossible, it’s like asking someone to go urinate for you. We aren’t that close and I’m not going to apply a catheter for you.
I wasn’t invited
No you weren’t because this is my vacation. If you wanted to go with us then we should have planned ahead and you could have purchased your very own ticket. That is if you’ve budgeted properly.
You should have done “X”
There is always someone who’s taken the same trip as you and attempts to induce feelings of “you’ve missed something crucial that would have made your vacation 1000 times better”.
