Can’t survive without something? Categorize yourself as disabled.

Just read somebody’s facebook status on my homepage:

“Lost phone!!! majorly handicapped :(…..msg. here if ur trying to get a hold of me and if you want me to call back, inbox me ur number cause I def. don’t have it.”

Ummm I’m sure you’ll survive. But more importantly, why is it okay for people to compare themselves to the “handicapped” (mind you, not the word to use) when they are missing something? Or are disadvantaged in some trivial way? Or just want an excuse to emphasize how much their life sucks based on the situation they are in.
