However, I do just want to point out that as a Melbourninan myself, there ain't NOBODY that refers to Mebourne as "the Melbourne city".
Troll troll troll.
This forum is predominantly American and Canadian, so OP was probably trying to word it so that people who were not familiar with Australia knew that it was a big city rather than a small town.
For example, I live in Tasmania and hardly anyone outside Australia has heard of it, let alone any of the suburbs, so I would've probably worded it in a way that sounded weird for an Australian. Doesn't mean I'm a troll
As for the OP, I'm actually feeling bad for her. No, I don't agree AT ALL with how she handled it, but the fact is she's only a kid and was heartbroken... Her father promised something, then pulled out on it. Doesn't mean she should've behaved like this, but some of the abuse you've all given her was pretty harsh.
Perhaps pointing out in a MATURE and sensible manner how she was behaving would've been better? She's a kid and most of us are adults, so there's no reason to behave like a kid and abuse her. Just my two cents.
(For the record, I don't agree with how she reacted, but most of you reacted in just as bad a manner.)
