WHY SO MEAN?!

Today I was running a little late. I rushed out of the building as fast as I could. I went to the spot, where I would wait for my ride. I looked around and noticed it had left. Shoots!. So I go back to the building, hoping a nice frum Jew will gladly take me to my destination. I see a guy come out and I ask him if he is going to flatbush (Midwood). He tells me "no". This goes on for quite a while. One guy said "no but its on my way", and then didn't let me hop on in. Chutzpah.

After, a nice frum Jew I knew let me in; I came to the realization that, Frummies are not nice people. I had known this beforehand, but now it has became an instinct. I have written about frummies saying derogatory slurs against other races, but now its even their own race (not the derogatory slurs). I am lost upon all this confusion, whether to trust frummies, or not to. To think like how I grew up, or to except the recent events as normal. Some guidance could do.

nea, frummies aren't nice.

But in this case, I side with the frummies. I wouldn't wanna pick up a stranger for safety purposes. nothing to do with being nice

They knew me, but not personally knew me, as a neighbor would be.

Mikeinmidwood said...

By neighbor I meant really knows me.

frumskeptic said...

Trust your instinct, and don't trust frummies.
If they want you to trust them make them earn it by proving they are honest.

Not all frumies are mean, only the ones in our neighborhoods...MIM, you are too young to lose your trust in people. Keep trusting (and flip a bird to all the meanies)-life's better that way...

Not A Geek!

wish they would want to earn my trust.

Sally Hazel

If I flip the bird they wont trust me.

True frummies are not mean.

However the fakeadox are.

So far everyone I met was always nice. I have never encountered a mean person so far B"H.

Considering the post about sicko's. Perhaps they just didn't want to give rides to strangers.

My mother always offers rides, and she drives out of her way lots of times, but she says that once she's in the car it doesn't matter how much more she drives. So all my classmates and friends are always thankful to her.

Now that I see that they were your neighbors and knew you, that is mean of them.

"True frummies are not mean. However the fakeadox are."

Exactly, and I think people forget that.

You misunderstood. I mean they knew me, who I was, but not like a neighbor who really knows me.

The Babysitter said...

ahh ok, so then it's not their fault?
