Dear Fellow Californians: 
Stop making fun of me for freaking out over earthquake aftershocks. I was raised in tornado country, not THE WHOLE EARTH SHAKES country. I’ve lived in San Francisco for 18 years, so stop telling me to go home for being afraid of earthquakes. I AM HOME (it’s just shaking). I know YOU may not think it’s a big deal with the state shakes, but it scares the crap out of me. If you think I’m being silly or stupid, then unfriend me or unfollow me on social media, but do NOT mock me or try to make me feel ashamed. I don’t need it and it’s rude of you. And don’t mock others either. You’re being a jerk and no one cares how “brave” or “blase” you are about Mother Nature shaking the state. Thanks.
