Basically 3 kids drank cough syrup and OD'ed on it. Paramedics were called, one of them flatlined and was brought back. Turns out I've known 2 of them for about 5 years. So I felt sad and I didn't want them to be sick or anything, yet I don't feel completely bad. They chose to do drugs and over dose and get sick.

My Facebook is being flooded with "Pray for the guys, God Save Them" etc kind of things. Yes, I feel very bad for them. No one wants to see their classmates taken away in an ambulance. People thought I was being an ass when I said that while I feel bad, I'm not going to flip out because I don't "feel bad."

So am I being an ass? I've already apologized to people for saying it but a few are still mad at me.

Yes.

If that makes you an ass, I'm a fucking sociopath. I'm not a sociopath though.

So... you're not an ass.

you dont have to 100 percent sympathize with them but you should at least hope that they get out ok and feel bad that they made that choice.

i dont get what you are saying here, you say that you feel bad for them, but you dont feel bad??
please explain

No, they're ****ing retarded, I would be in the emotional state as you. Yeah, I would feel bad, but it's their own damn fault.
I love Foxy Shazam more than you.

I'm saying that I feel bad for them because they got very, very sick and had to be taken to the hospital. I don't want to see them hurt or anything. But I don't feel bad because they overdosed and did it with their own freewill.

so you dont feel bad that they made a poor decision that caused them great consequences? while it is 100% their fault, its bad that they decided to do that.

No.

You should hope that they come out okay, but you shouldn't feel bad for them. They picked a stupid drug to mess around with.

I have nothing against trying to get high on cough syrup, but if you fuck up and OD on it, then that's your own stupid fault.

I'd think the exact same way. Obviously I'd feel bad about my classmates being sick and I'd hope they come out of it okay, but at the same time it's their own damn fault for being stupid and drinking cough syrup. So no, you are not an ass.

That happened last year. A kid in grade 9 was hit by a truck and died, and the entire school went into hysterics for a month or so. Random people who didn't even know him made facebook groups and all that kind of shit, it just didn't make any sense. Sure I felt bad about him dying, but really I didn't know who he was and I wouldn't have been able to pick his face out of a crowd before he died.

So no, you're not an ass. You're just a normal person living in the "drama generation."

The people who think you're being an ass are mistaking your apathy for a desire to watch your friends die. Obviously, you don't want them to be hurt. You're just apathetic. Nothing wrong with that.

If MY friends did that, I'd do the same thing.

I would've laughed and just chalked it up as another victory for natural selection.
There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.

no ur not an ass. Are they really that desperate for a high to try and drink cough syrup, you get NO pleasure while attempting to reach that high, plus it's ****ing dangerous (or so this story proves?)

Cough syrup?....are you ****ing serious?
