Seriously?? I think I'd disown those "family members". What drives me insane is all those sobbing-induced video compilations dedicated to military members and their families, that show children with flags at cemeteries/ funerals, flags being presented to widows and 21-gun salutes. And almost everyone of my friends on Facebook has found it necessary to post one of these at some point or another and more often than not, has tagged me in it.....wth?

I think people think those kind of imgages/emails are somehow patriotic. I think they're incredibly disrepestful of those men and women who gave the ultimate sacrific and are now having their casket photographed. Some things just should not be touched in my book.

I knew you'd all get it. and Whitney - yes those too - and wtf don't tag me. LOL.

I have blocked the family members who are the biggest culprits btw. they now go directly to trash and if they have something truly earth shattering to tell me they'll need to call me.

Wow! So after my post about my trip to the post office I have to worry about people out there doing this. COMMON SENSE has seriously gone out the window!!!
