    One of my acquaintances just posted on Twitter:

    'Why won't this fly die? It's like deodorant wasn't made to kill it or something'.

    I just felt that it was so arrogant, and I actually feel a bit sad for the fly.

    Does anyone else think this is arrogant too?

    They could have opened a window and let it out? Spraying it with deodorant would cause it a lot of suffering and pain. The tweet just sounds arrogant too 'it's like deodorant wasn't made to kill it' sounds really mean.

    It's definitely mean. I feel sad for the fly. You don't think it suffered too much? They should have just let it go.

    Still don't see how it was arrogant at all.

    That is so cruel. Can you imagine the suffering being sprayed by deodorant would cause it?

    I'm not sure did they mean to be. It does sound a bit sarcastic - I'm not sure if this made it sound arrogant?

    Spraying a fly with deodorant would cause it a lot of suffering. They then post about it, in a sarcastic way. It's like they cause the fly all the suffering, and don't even care about it.

    Yeah, kinda like they're saying 'Damnit why isn't this deodorant doing what I want it to do at this moment in time?' Or maybe they expected deodorant to have fly killing properties? Don't they know we have fly spray for this sort of thing?

    I think you meant ignorant rather than arrogant. It is ignorant of them not to be intelligent enough to realise that deodorant actually wasn't designed with killing flies in mind.
