Short trip or no trip?

I could not believe how ungrateful some people are! Earlier when I was in a chatroom about Disney World in Florida a woman that is married and her husband works full time,but she does not work outside the home or a home based job because she is busy with their 5 boys! Anyway they are getting to go on their first vacation to Disney World.But,they can only afford to go to parks there for 2 day's,plus that her husband cannot get a lot of time off work.And another chatter come on there and said that going there for just 2 day's is not worth it,they should just stay home!How rude! She said that her 5 boys are not complaining,that they are grateful to even get to go anyway. Do you know people that are ungrateful like this?

I have met those kind of people and I try to stay away from them even when some belong to my own family. I am very happy that that family can go to Disney, even for a short time. They will have a wonderful experience and will make them save to go for another couple of days in the future.

Some people are just soooo NASTY!!! What a rude and horrible thing for her to say to that lady. I just want to punch her, lol! They are going to have such a great time and I'm sure they'll get their 2 days worth out of it. Bless their little hearts for doing this, and that's what I call a sweet loving family.

Hi Kashmeresmycat,I was thinking the same thing.And so were a few other mothers and we all told her off. I hope this mom of 5 post some great pics of their trip and basically saying,"in your face" to that rude lady.

Some people just take pleasure in bursting other people's happiness. I don't know if it is plain envy because someone gets to do fun stuff and they cannot, or they're just plain nasty. Most people do this over a chatroom or any online site because it will be easy for them to hide behind a username.

Not ungrateful to this point. It's worth it for two days expecially for the boys. They will never forget this trip to Disney World and they will love it. Having two days away is better then nothing in my opinion. I love to travel so being away from the home for two days would be a blessing to me. I know my daughter is home 24/7 with her two daughters while her husband works twelve hour days. If she was getting a trip like this she would jumb on it even if it was only for two days.

Yes there are a lot of people in the world like that sadly. I was thinking with 5 boys I wouldn't last more then two days at Disney World lol I think the 2 days will be perfect for them and as for the other lady she sounds like one of those that likes to spread drama where she goes.

Hi Tricia,I think your right,she is a trouble maker. I have 2 boys and when I was younger and my boys were about 10 and 7.I used to babysit some weekends for a widower that went on trips for his work.He had an 11 year old with down syndrom son,a 13 year old son and a 4 year old son.They were good boys,but I had 5 boys then. But,I was younger then and did not have the respondsability of 3 of them 24/7.

Well, I know that usually the amusement parks (like Disney World) charge on the first day, while the second is free (if I'm not mistaken!) In the case described in your question, it would seem that this family can afford the short trip. Although short, but worth to be done, this according to my point of view. Each family, you know, has its commitments and its needs. Especially when in a family, there are 5 children!

Hi alberello,Disney World charges for everyday,but the more days you stay the cheaper the price is.

I do know people that are very ungrateful like this. Her boys seem to be very mature and grateful for their ages since they are saying 2 days at Disney is better than no trip at all. Those parents must be raising their kids right and saying it's better to have even something small or for a short time than not have at all. I mean the boys are glad to have even a small trip for 2 days because at least they get to go on a trip where as so many people have it so much worse in life. That mother should be proud of her boys. Also that lady that said it's just 2 days not worth going maybe she was a spoiled child or she is just mean and rude. Either way it is none of her business how long that family goes on a trip. As long as they go and are together and have fun. I mean iv'e been on a trip before that was only for Saturday and Sunday and i loved every minute of it. I mean people should not be so greedy and want more than they get because most people don't even get to go to Disney World. Also some people have it a lot worse and never go anywhere. Again that mother should be so proud of her kids for being so mature and nice about going for only 2 days because at least they get to go.

I DO. iN THE FIRST PLACE IT'S NONE OF THAT WOMAN'S BUISNESS WHAT THEY DO. uNLESS ASK SHE SHOULD KEEP HER OPINIONS TO HERSELF.She sounds like a busybody to me, not my favorite kind of people. I'm sure those 5 boys will have a blast & God bless them for wanting to do that for their kids.

Hi AntiqueLady,How are you? No the woman was simply asking if anyone knew the best parks in Disney World for them to go to.See,she has never been there before.I don't know if you are aware,within Disney World are different parks,Magic Kingdm,Epcot,Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom.There is also Downtown Disney,that is free to visit.It is mostly shops and restaurants.There are 2 water parks and a sports park.

Once on a Florida trip, I was able to get a half day to spend at Epcot Center. Granted, a few more days to visit the other parks would have been great, but I was happy to get to see it at all. some people just always have to be better....

sometimes we cannot say what's in other peoples mind. in our world there are many kinds of people not only as same at us. same as well complete package, but its only for in outside form, but its more deal on the inner form which is our attitude and you can define and judge the person for it. yes there is lots of ungrateful person and sad to say that's the way how they interact to other people even with their relatives too. thanks

I don't know why that was said by you as ungratefulness. The chatter may only have been making a suggestion. As for me, you can reschedule the trip when you have enough to spend so as to get the most out of it.

Yes it was very rude of her to say that! Maybe she was stressing that if they are going to Disney land anyway, they must make the most of it. But she should have said it in a different way so that the other lady wouldn't be hurt. Well, each person has his/her own way of talking, and moreover in chatrooms we don't exactly get to know the tone of the person chatting with us, it's different than a face to face talk.

A short trip is a good way to have a break for a while, unless you are a home buddy. But traveling would be so advisable. Life is too short, you should enjoy.. xD

Some people have no idea what real life is like, I think. And so they think that because they can get a week off to go on vacation, everyone else should be able to as well. I am actually looking enviously at Legoland in california. I'd take even just one day there.

Hi, In our society, there are a lot of ungrateful people. All men and women are not equally perfect. You will get a lot of odd people, who only create problems for others. Have a very nice day.
