I was carousing The Weather Channel’s facebook page when I came across this comment that really made my jaw drop:
The guy eventually deleted it after it had stretched on for quite a few comments with him trying to defend his stance when I could do nothing but shake my head. I, being a bit nosey, did decide to go to his page to see if it was public and what he said and was quite appalled to see these two statuses:
That’s great…he HOPES and thinks we will be in for it…hopes…argh.
***That’s my little tidbit in reddish…and yes I totally blacked out the colorful words he used, I do not allow profanity here LOL***
Well, that was kind of Mr. I Need To Make A Buck…the not wanting anyone to get hurt part. Unfortunately he doesn’t care if other people get hurt financially….which is what happens more often than not with hurricanes. Most of us are obviously smart enough to evacuate and avoid the physical harm, if it comes to that, so he will have that part of his prayer answered.
It really ticks me off that he wants so badly to make a buck he is praying for the misfortune of others. Wouldn’t prayers be better directed that work comes to him in some other way, that’s the way my prayers went when Brent lost his job. I prayed that Brent would find a job, but not that someone else would have to suffer (ex. lose their job so he could take their place) for him to get a job. Look into doing construction elsewhere, travel for it if it’s not good in your area, there are ways to work without having to wish bad misfortune to others.
Selfishness at it’s best folks! And that, my friends, is why Mr. Construction worker gets the award that has gathered dust lately….
