Quoted from o-din:
Think so huh? Well maybe my experience with pets being put down wasn't what everybody wanted to here, but it was still an open thread on this forum where any body is allowed to post.
If that was a politically incorrect thing to do then I guess I was in the wrong according to the latest addendum to the pinside rules.
I'm not questioning your right to post, I'm just saying that in my opinion, it was in poor taste, given the circumstances, that's all. For as shitty as people can be on Pinside, there is a time and place for a little bit of compassion.
Hey, NOBODY'S experience with pets being put down is good. When I had to put my dog down, I was bawling my eyes out while I was holding him. I didn't know it at the time, but I had the veterinarian bawling, the two receptionists out in the other room bawling, and 10 people out in the waiting room bawling. It was a top 5 worst experience in my life (the others being when my grandparents died, when my dad died, and when my younger brother had a stroke). So I know the pain of the experience of having a pet put down. All the more reason you shouldn't have made that post.
