Pet Peeve

I can't stand it when tragedies happen, and people say things like "Oh my God, I would've been on that flight if I'd left a day earlier."

"If I had studied abroad there I would have been right where that bomb went off!"

"I am flying on the same flight that crashed a year ago today!"

Well, guess what? You didn't, you weren't, and it's not the same.

I was almost going to be a super model but then I suddenly wasn't skinny or pretty enough.

It's not a coincidence. The two events are unrelated.

Next time tragedy strikes and you are still around to think about how it could've almost, maybe, hypothetically been you...Shut up, because it wasn't.
