I talked to my friend earlier today and I’m still annoyed at the way the conversation went. She was completely hating on Sochi, saying that the Olympics are terrible this year and that what she has read has only reinforced her desire to not visit Russia. I became very annoyed, as there have been accounts of journalists reporting wrong information from Sochi. (Someone tweeted a photo of an alleged double toilet. It turned out that bathroom was being remodeled and had the wall taken down.)
Anyway, I was annoyed because she was so smug about the whole thing. “None of the other Olympics have ever had problems like this,” she said. “So this is really unusual and really terrible.”
Ugh, I’m so annoyed! I wish people would shut up and stop dumping on Russia. Especially those who have no idea what they’re talking about.
