    Default Help me write a response

    To something so annoying on Facebook. I am not good with words but this women has basically just said we should all stop complaining about the budget because we should be supporting our kids by working not getting a handout. She doesn't work, (her husband does) so I'm sure recording Atleast ccr. So hypocritical.

    Tell exactly that- she is in a privileged position where she does not have to work. Unless she gets a chronic illness or her husband leaves, she won't probably personally experience any financial hardship due to the new budget. However, lacking empathy and trying to silence people with legitimate concerns an fears because "it won't affect me so who cares" is bound to be a deal breaker in many friendships.

    I'd ignore it. Not worth your time arguing and you're probably not going to change her views.
