Random thought of the day

I wonder about people some times. Someone writes in some message board that he’s off to a trip abroad. Most of the people respond with a variety of “Have fun” or “I’m so jealous” responses. One replies with “No! Don’t go! Come back!”. Is this supposed to be endearing? Is this supposed to be friendly? I can see why someone would think it’s a compliment to want to be around someone, but it seems like such a needy, selfish friendship – “I don’t want you to have fun, I just want you for myself”.

I hear what you’re saying, but

Sometimes I am that person, so the person would know they will be missed. Maybe the way to do it is not to sound needy and selfish, but I think people should know they would be missed.

It’s funny that:

1. You wrote that, given that while commenting on The Cubbling’s entry, I was considering adding a little “missing you” bit, but then decided against because of the exact same egocentric seeming notion you describe.

2. The aforementioned Cubbling’s comment above. Such an Internet Moment.
