What do you mean?
I have an issue here. We had a class trip to spain and some people in our class can't afford it. Is it appropriate and adequate for some people to call them selfish?
Why would they be called selfish because they can't afford a trip? Sounds as if some of the people in the class are a bit snobbish and cruel - not everyone has rich parents who can afford overseas trips.
Briefly, NO, it is not appropriate and adequate for some people to call them selfish.
Even if it were the people who couldn't go calling the ones who were going on the trip selfish, it is still not appropriate, just rude and inconsiderate, which ever way it goes.
Just my opinion......
It is absolutely inappropriate for those who can afford the class trip to be mocking those who cannot afford it. Talk about out of touch!
Let's say 20% of the kids in the school are below the poverty line. Are these kids expecting their parents to give up money to pay rent or the car payment so the child can have the luxury of a trip to Spain?
Another matter to consider are the parents who have some savings but have to choose. Do they put money back for their child's college or pay for the single trip to Spain? As an investment in their child, several thousand dollars towards college tuition is smarter.
These ignorant, elitist children should either figure out how to help more people pay for the trip or shut up.
Is it the ones who cannot afford to go who are saying the ones who CAN afford to go, are being selfish?...........Because if this is not what you mean, your question either makes no sense at all.......or people need to know what the word "selfish" means! It's hardly selfish to be unable to afford a trip to Spain.
Good title for your Question! What DO you mean???

I spent the day in Indiana taking my 23-year-old son to the doctor. He's been deathly ill for two weeks and has taken a turn for the worse over the last couple days. He has no health insurance, so I went so he could get treated. (I paid.)The doctor said he probably had flu the first week, possibly...

It seems that unless you are upper middle class or wealthy you can't afford proper health care. It just doesn't seem fair. I am happy so far that I have been healthy, but just a simple cold or flu to get penecilin you have to pay a Dr. almost $200.00 just to get a prescription. I am very thankful...
