A few of my good friends just came back from Cancun where they were on their honey moon. They definately had some crazy stories but there was one that really got to me:
The shelter situation had them in a theater house with 350 others and no running water. that means no flushing toilets. OK, so we'll agree that it definately sucks and is something we would be quite upset about if it happened to us. To add to the problem, the staff of the resorts were let go so that they could be with their families etc. However, many of the staff were so generous as to volunteer their time, literally cleaning up other peoples shit and vomit when the gravity feed toilets would get plugged. Along with cleaning, they collected and packed all of the vacationers belongings, and to my surprise nothing was reported stolen, and brought it to each person. Something tells me that would never happen in the americas -respect for peoples belongings that is(new orleans ring a bell).
This is where it gets upsetting. You didnt hear a peep out of the mexicans about all the work they had to do under such pressure without pay, but for some ****ed up reason, it was us white folks that would be raving mad at those very selfless souls, demanding our money back and constantly bitching about the smell/heat, yada yada yada.
what do we have to say for ourselves?
