<<so I'd appreciate the same respect.>> Which we all deserve. But, again, this comes across as sounding a little bit demanding and said with attitude. (Again - might not be the way you INTENDED it to sound!) My advice would be apologize for things coming across the wrong way, understand that most of us "normal" people would not be willing to give a ride to a complete stranger, move on, and get a fresh start to your SC message board experience!
It might not feel this way to YOU right now, but honestly the people on here are freakin great!
Kylie...you said you posted several times about needing a ride. I looked at your older posts. None were ones you started yourself. Your message about needing a ride was thrown in the middle of people having a conversation already so they probably just skipped over it. Also, someone else needed a camping spot and you offered to swap part of your space for a ride....so why would people think you still need help? Then you post the "seriously disappointed" thread. Maybe if you had started one yourself mentioning the willing to trade some camping space or ride people would've been more inclined to help. Again, most people don't want strangers hitching a ride with them....just saying.

What happens at Stagecoach, STILL stays at Stagecoach!
Come Friday night, My friends and I start peeling off them labels
Working hard all week puts beer on the table
GUN POWDER & LEAD
No matter what they say I've done, I ain't never had too much fun!
me? if me, then probably not. 3 days of Coachella will probably be it for me this year, will most likely be dealing with some health stuff the week after that will keep me out of commission for a bit...thanks for the offer, though (if it was indeed directed towards me)
You feel ignored? If people don't live near you, don't have room to add someone to their car, or don't want to have someone in their car they don't know, what do you want them to do? I live in LA and wouldn't want someone I've never met in the car, am I still supposed to respond to you wishing you the best of luck on your journey?
If I read something on here that doesn't apply to me, I don't respond and I'm guessing most other people on here are the same way. Nobody WAS shunning you, your request just didn't apply to the people that were reading it.
I want to rock and roll all night...and part of everyday
Aw man! I can't believe I found this thread so late! Too bad. At least we'll have BEER there! Phew!
That's crazy! Like chicken on a roast beef sandwich!
