One-eyed Mom

This chain letter is apparently supposed to be inspirational/touching considering where it has been reposted on the web. One of the sites it appears on is a Muslim forum. And here's a post with tons of comments on academictips.org. It was also posted on a Facebook note here. and that's just a few examples.

The main character whose POV from which it is written is such a rage-inducing bugger that I felt on the verge of going postal throughout the entire thing!

It's a story about some jerk who hates his loving mother, all because she has only one eye, and because of his continual rejection of her, she dies of a broken heart.

According to a lot of posts on the web sites shown above, many people are moved to looking at their parents with a new respect, and many people shed tears.

and who can blame them? It is a heart-rending story.

But it isn't true. It is only a morality tale.

It does showcase how cruel some people can be toward especially their family members, but the part that describes the mother giving up one of her eyes so that her son who lost one of his, won't have to grow up without two eyes, isn't true.

There is no such thing as an eye transplant.

But I've seen how crushing it is when people inflict emotional cruelty on others, and it is heart-breaking. I've seen people try and try to make relationships work only to get hurt again. And if anybody treated my family members or friends, or heck, anyone the way this disgusting story character treated his mother, the only thing keeping me from letting my fists fly at them would be the probability of getting in trouble with the law.

But there's no law against throwing cyber-punches.

So look out. Particularly enraged burning mangle coming up. The usual numberings showing which mutation said what...

* * *

😈👹Memes: MY mom only had one eye.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: So that's all that matters to you? Nothing like "My mom was a wonderful loving person" or "My mom was a mean person" just having only one eye was the very first thing you're on about, you stupid turd! You can't accept people as people, you can't even see past outer appearances because at matters so much to you. You're in serious deep magma with me, dude! *Particularly stern scowl*

😈👹Memes: I hated her... she was such an embarrassment.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Menacing glare* You despicable, unfeeling, selfish piece of crap! If you want to hate somebody, you better have a dang good reason! Yours doesn't cut it!

😈Meme1: My mom ran a small shop at a flea market. She collected little weeds and such to sell... anything for the money we needed

👹Meme2: She cooked for students and teachers to support the family.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: So… She works her butt off just to try keeping you fed, clothed and sheltered, and all you did was hate her because of her one eye! *Scowl* You make me SICK!!

😈Meme1: she was such an embarrassment.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Facepalm* You already said that!

😈👹Memes: There was this one day during elementary school...

😈Meme1: It was field day, and

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Huh: A field day is when you revel in something. So you must be talking about Sports Day, or a field trip.

👹Meme2: where

😈👹Memes: my mom came.

👹Meme2: to say hello to me.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Cold stare at snotty little brat* And you got embarrassed again……..

😈👹Memes: I was so embarrassed.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Scowl* You already said that!

You have no excuse for being embarrassed! You - you - *can't think of anything coherent and head desks*

😈👹Memes: How could she do this to me?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: !!!!!!!!!!!Aaaaaaaaaaaagh! *Screaming red hot rage* YOU BLASTED HYPOCRITE! YOU STUPID IDIOT! Yeah, even for an idiot, you're stupid!

How could you do THIS to HER is the better question! *Roars*

😈👹Memes: I

👹Meme2: ignored her,

😈👹Memes: threw a hateful look and ran out.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Scowls, fumes* this creep's gonna need a body bag when I get through with him! *Looks fit to kill*

😈👹Memes: The next day at school one of my classmates said,

👹Meme2: "EEEE,

😈👹Memes: your mom only has one eye!?!?!..."

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: So, all these kids are rude, hateful and selfish just like you I suppose!

😈Meme1: And they taunted me.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Oh, cry me an ocean over it! Those bullies have no right to be treating you that way, and if you didn't hate your own mom over nothing, I'd give you a big hug of support; but you and those kids are equally disgusting for your bigotry, and you're even worse because of what it does to your mother. Don't expect me to feel sorry for you!

👹Meme2: I wanted to bury myself.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I want to bury you too! Maybe i'll get the chance when ending this mangle!

😈👹Memes: I

👹Meme2: also wanted

😈Meme1: wished that

😈👹Memes: my mom

👹Meme2: to

😈Meme1: would

😈👹Memes: disappear.

😈Meme1: from this world

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: !!!!!!!!!!! *Murderous glare* Shut - the - hex - up!! You loathsome waste of skin!

😈Meme1: so

😈👹Memes: I

👹Meme2: confronted her that day and

😈👹Memes: said,

😈Meme1: to my mom, "mom... Why don't you have the other eye?!

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: She can't help that, you odious lackwit - any more than you can help having a butthole! Oooooooooh! You make me livid!!!!! *Withering glare*

😈👹Memes: If you're only

😈Meme1: going


😈👹Memes: to make me

😈👹Memes: a

😈Meme1: laughingstock,

👹Meme2: laughing stock out of me,

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: she's not trying to make a laughing stock out of you! She can't help her looks, you bloody fool! *Raps sharply on chain creeps head, hears echo* Anybody home in there!? Any more of this and I'm going to blow several fuzes!

😈👹Memes: why don't you just die?!!!"

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Glowering, face going crimson with rage* Aaaaaaaaagh! You *whack* inhuman *thwack* calloused *punch* hateful *dropkick* filthy *pummel* parasitic *yank* scum!!!

You have NO IDEA about human feeling, do you!? All the work she's done just to keep your worthless unloving ungrateful hide looked after as best as she could manage, and she loves you! She hasn't beaten or been otherwise abusive to you. She loves you, and this is how you treat her! You just don't give a flying hot damn!

Aaaaaaaaaargh! *Roars and glowers* Your freaking head's gonna roll!!

😈👹Memes: my mom did not respond...

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well, no crap, bozo! You said something incredibly cruel! What were you expecting? A hug? Applause? A friggin' pat on the back? Numbskull!

😈👹Memes: I

👹Meme2: didn't even stop to think for a second about what I said, because I was full of anger. I was oblivious to her feelings.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: No, duh! nothing like pointing out the painfully obvious!

😈Meme1: guess I felt a little bad,

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Yeah right, you're just saying that to try saving your worthless scumbag butt from another pummelling! *Punch!* Just try to stay out of my way! *Scowl*

😈Meme1: but at the same time, it felt good to think that I had said what I'd wanted to say all this time...

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Don't give me that whine about how you supposedly needed to get it off your chest! you had no valid reason to hate her in the first place!

😈Meme1: maybe it was because my mom hadn't punished me, but I didn't think that I had hurt her feelings very badly.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: OMG You're an A1 imbecile! GAH! *Facepalm*

😈Meme1: That night... I woke up, and went to the kitchen to get a glass of water.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Too bad I wasn't on hand to put a pinch of hot sauce in it…

😈Meme1: My mom was crying there, so quietly, as if she was afraid that she might wake me.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Scowl, smoulder, fuming* You hurt her terribly! You broke her heart! And like any loving mother, she still loves you! She tries to hold her sobs back because she doesn't want to wake you - how considerate of her, and what have you got for her in return! Nothing! You filthy coward! *Glares and *Shoves chain creep violently*

😈Meme1: I took a look at her, and then turned away.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: of course you did, like the ruddy coward you are!

😈Meme1: Because of the thing I had said to her earlier, there was something pinching at me in the corner of my heart.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Scoffing tsk* yeah right, now your pathetic excuse of a stunted little conscience began kicking in, talk about being slow on the draw! but I'm not expecting it to last. It'll fizzle out and give way to your true stinking nature shortly…

😈Meme1: Even so, I hated my mother who was crying out of her one eye.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I hate you! *Pummel throttle thrash!*

👹Meme2: I wanted out of that house, and have nothing to do with her.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I want you to shut up and stick a needle in your eye!

😈👹Memes: So I

😈Meme1: told myself that I would grow up and become successful.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: You'll never be successful where it really counts! You are a big fat failure as a person!

😈Meme1: Because I hated my one-eyed mom and our desperate poverty...

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Smack* SHUT - UP!!! You actually deserve to be poor!

😈Meme1: then

😈👹Memes: studied real hard,.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: But remained stupid at being human…

👹Meme2: got a chance to go aboard to study.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Scholarship - too bad it got wasted on you. And you can't even spell 'abroad'. I'm not nit-picky toward real people about their spelling/typing unless they ask for it by being disagreeable and arrogant, but you chain creeps get no slack. I'll bet you cheated your way through school. And that's nothing compared with the rest of your abominable behaviour!

😈Meme1: I left my mother and came to Seoul and studied, and got accepted in the Seoul University with all the confidence I had.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well bully for you. *Contemptuous sneer* Excuse me for not singing your praises…

😈👹Memes: Then, I got married.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Choke, cough, cough, sputter, cough gag* You must've been one heck of a con artist to land a wife, or maybe she's as stupid and disgusting as you! *Disgusted scowl* Congrats…NOT!

😈👹Memes: I bought a house of my own.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: With what? Did you marry into money? ah-hah, that has to be it! You, as they say, "married up" with love being nowhere in the equation on your part… What a sham. what a parasite. what a loser!

😈Meme1: Then

😈👹Memes: I had kids,

👹Meme2: of my own

😈Meme1: too...

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Projectile vomits* Oh, the horror! Imagine what those kids could turn out like! They could learn all sorts of wrong things from you, or be traumatized from living with you...

👹Meme2: I was happy with my life, my kids and the comforts.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Withering glare* I'll bet you were! The question is, was she as happy with it? Somehow I just can't see living with a pig like you being happily wedded bliss.

😈Meme1: now I'm living happily as a successful man. I like it here because it's a place that doesn't remind me of my mom.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Scowl* You shut your freaking putrescent trap!

😈Meme1: This happiness was getting bigger and bigger,

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Spits at chain creep*

😈Meme1: when... someone unexpected came to see me. what?!

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Scowl*

👹Meme2: Then one day,

😈Meme1: Who's this...it was

😈👹Memes: my mother...

👹Meme2: came to visit me.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Oh, $@#$%#@$$##%@#$%%#$@#%$^#$@#%^$#@ !!!!!!!!! *Tears hair in futility*

She shouldn't have wasted the time, effort, and what little money she must've scrimped and saved up for this trip to see her hopelessly bigoted, shallow, hateful boy, who hasn't learned a thing and hasn't changed and never will! This is only going to end in another needless heartache for her! Aaaaaaagh!

And of course, YOU won't appreciate it! *Scowl*

👹Meme2: She hadn't seen me in years and she didn't even meet her grandchildren.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Of course she didn't! You made damn sure of that! *Glower*

😈Meme1: still with her one eye.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well considering you gave her the ultimatum of spending what money she earned on a glass eye, if she used to have two eyes and lost one to some kind of trauma, or spending this money on trying to see you and her grandkids, and she chose to risk facing the heartache all over again in the hopes that maybe there was a little love and compassion somewhere inside that boy of hers - you really make me sick!

😈Meme1: It felt as if the whole sky was falling apart on me.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Killer glower* Just you wait until that happens, scummy oxygen waster! JUST - YOU - WAIT! *Malevolent gleaming stare* You've been making the sky fall apart on your mom for years, because of something that isn't even wrong, and that she didn't ask for, or choose! *Screaming and pounding desk in rage*

👹Meme2: When she stood by the door,

😈Meme1: My little girl ran away, scared of my mom's eye.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Wrong! She ran away, scared of YOU! Scared of what you might do! This kid has seen the hate in your face too many times already. She's seen you around people who looked different. You wouldn't allow her to play with anyone who was blind, deaf, crippled, etc. or of a different skin tone from you. You beat her for disobeying you by making friends with what you called "undesirables" or people "beneath her station." so she was scared you'd beat her again.

😈👹Memes: And

👹Meme2: my children laughed at her,

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: So the one little girl ran off, but your other brat slaves stuck around and licked your stinky boots by showing your mother the bigotry you fostered in them ever since they were knee-high to a grasshopper. *Morose expression* I'll kill you...

👹Meme2: and

😈👹Memes: I

😈Meme1: asked her, "who are you?!" "I don't know you!!!"

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Aaaaaaaaaaagh!!! If you still can't be human, cram it!

😈Meme1: as if trying to make that real.

😈👹Memes: I

👹Meme2: yelled

😈👹Memes:screamed at her

👹Meme2: for coming over uninvited.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: violent, shallow, prejudiced whacko!

😈👹Memes: "How dare you come to my house and scare my

😈Meme1: daughter!"

👹Meme2: children!

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: But you said your kids laughed at her. Oh yeah, they had to react that way or get smacked around by you! They're all scared of you, the whole lot of them.

😈👹Memes: "GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!"

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Aaaaaurgh! When the !@#$@#%$@ will you just die, creep! And I was right, you are just the type to beat your wife and kids! I'll bet having all that sex and those kids wasn't even your wife's choice! The only reason you're so friggin' happy with your family is because none of them dare so much as step in the wrong direction or have a hair out of place around you! Your kids are scared to death of you.

And now your little dystopia is suddenly threatened because the sight of your poor mother is enough to make you go absolutely bananas!

😈👹Memes: and to this, my mother quietly answered, "oh, I'm so sorry. I may have gotten the wrong address," and she disappeared out of sight.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Clenching fists* she'd have every right to be sorry an abomination such as you was ever born to her! *Scowling with incensed tears brimming* I will KILL YOU!

😈Meme1: Thank goodness...

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Withering glower* SHUT THE BLOODY FRIGGIN' HEX UP!

😈Meme1: she doesn't recognize me... I was quite relieved.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Scowl* You're making your fate worse with every blasted word!

😈Meme1: I told myself that I wasn't going to care, or think about this for the rest of my life.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Which isn't worth much! *Fumes*

😈Meme1: Then a wave of relief came upon me...

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: And a wave of nausea and fury on me. I'll pulverize you! *Glare*

😈👹Memes: One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Snarl* Too bad they thought to include the likes of you!

😈👹Memes: So

😈Meme1: , lying

👹Meme2: I lied

😈👹Memes: to my wife that I was going on a business trip,.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Why lie to your wife about going to a school reunion? I'm pretty sure she wouldn't have minded.

So, how many other lies have you told your wife over the years, eh? How many other trips and expensive call girls have you been squandering her money on? How many girls have you been seeing around the world? How many have you paid and intimidated into keeping quiet? You're just the sort of low-life who would do all that - your hubris and selfishness know no bounds!

😈Meme1: I went.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I hope you had a lousy time!

😈👹Memes: After the reunion, I went

😈Meme1: down

😈👹Memes: to

😈Meme1: the

👹Meme2: that

😈👹Memes: old shack,

😈Meme1: that I used to call a house...

😈👹Memes: just out of curiosity.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: While your wife and kids were still kept prisoners in your palace by the staff you hired and paid to in force your dictates while you were away, gallivanting around.

👹Meme2: My neighbors said that she died.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Glares* The only comfort anybody can get from this is that her heartache is finally over… Oh, except for you, of course! You're so far gone that you're celebrating! *Burning glower*

👹Meme2: They handed me a letter that she wanted me to have.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Yeah, life wouldn't have been worth living, having that rotten git for a son! I can understand this eventually driving her toward suicide or simply just dying out of heartache. *Scowl*

😈Meme1: there, I found my mother fallen on the cold ground. But

😈👹Memes: I did not shed a single tear.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Punch!* Shut up, you narcissistic cretin!

😈Meme1: She had a piece of paper in her hand.... it was a letter to me.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Cold stare*

😈Meme1: She wrote:

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Gritting teeth*

😈👹Memes: My

👹Meme2: dearest

😈👹Memes: son...

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: And what should've been excluded was 'dearest'.

But this does suggest, as I have suspected all along, that he has no siblings. If there had been other children who loved her, they could've made her life worth while, and at least helped her to bear the heartache this disgusting dips hart caused! *Smoulders*

😈Meme1: I think my life has been long enough now...

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Not your life - but you certainly suffered more than your share. And you wouldn't have had to if you could've only given up on that kid.

😈Meme1: And... I won't visit Seoul anymore...

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Because you're ailing and giving up. If only you had given up on him years ago, started a new family, had better children, real humans who felt love and compassion and wanted to be part of the family. This demon was simply a bad seed right from the start - and no fault of your own, I'll add.

👹Meme2: I think of you all the time.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: If only you had washed your hands of this ungrateful selfish punk long ago…

😈👹Memes: I was so glad

👹Meme2: to hear

😈Meme1: when I heard

😈👹Memes: you were coming for the reunion.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Screams and tears hair*

😈Meme1: But I decided not to go to the school. ...for you...

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Again, just as well. It would've been a complete waste and heartache that would suck beyond the pale for you.

👹Meme2: But I may not be able to even get out of bed to see you.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Just as well, really, just as well. He isn't worth it.

👹Meme2: I'm sorry that I came to your house and scared your children.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: The thing I would've been sorry for was banging my broken heart against the wall and having it flung back by this toxic turd - yet again… There has to be a time when she just wondered why even bother.

👹Meme2: I'm sorry that I was a constant embarrassment to you when you were growing up.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Not your fault, you shouldn't have to be sorry. Him, on the other hand, he's got a lot to own up to!

😈Meme1: and I'm sorry that I only have one eye, and I was an embarrassment for you.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Again, not your fault...

😈Meme1: but would it be too much to ask if I wanted you to come visit me once in a while?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *dejected Sigh* Forget it, he'll never change! Asking this cretin to display anything in the way of humanity is asking too much of him. he's hopeless.

😈Meme1: I miss you so much... and

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Glum expression* You wanted him to be a real son. You miss something that was never there. When people continually reject you and mistreat you, the best thing you can do is just give up on them and find a way to move on. This guy just isn't worth anything. His own damn fault. Not yours.

😈👹Memes: You see……..when you were very little, you got into an accident, and lost your eye. As a

😈Meme1: mom,

👹Meme2: mother,

😈👹Memes:I couldn't stand watching you having to grow up with

😈Meme1: only

😈👹Memes: one eye... so I gave you mine...

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Wrong. There's no such thing as an eye transplant. and an adult woman's eye isn't likely to fit properly into the eye socket of a very young child either.

also, if this chain creep had any memory of being in an accident and losing an eye, he would've also remembered anything that happened to him following that.

So this could not, and did not happen.

But if the mother once had two eyes, then it was she who lost the eye in an accident and must've been too poor to get a glass eye to replace the real one. and now, she's written this as a last ditch effort to get a little love from that rotten excuse of a son who never should've come into her life, either by birth or adoption.

😈👹Memes: I was so proud of my son

😈Meme1: that

👹Meme2: who

😈👹Memes: was seeing a whole new world for me, in my place, with that eye.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nope.

Even if you lose one eye but you have 20/20 in the one you have left, you still see perfectly. Just out of one eye instead of two. That worthless git did nothing deserving of any pride. But this whole story explains why you never told him the truth and are now trying by way of a lie.

You never told him about your loss of an eye in the accident because he hated you so much ever since he was old enough to develop some sort of free will. he never would've listened to your explanation anyway. he never cared. I don't know why you kept trying, why you didn't give up on this kid. Well, yes, I know why you didn't. Still, it would've been better if you had.

😈Meme1: I was never upset at you for anything you did...

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Argh! I sure as heck am!

😈Meme1: the couple times that you were angry with me,

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: It wasn't a couple of times. That emotionally bankrupt piece of work was angry and full of hate toward you his whole rotten life, for no good reason. for that, you bet someone should've gotten upset with him and tried to straighten him out long ago! The only thing you did - not exactly wrong but it just didn't work - was trying too hard to win his love. Well, wrong isn't the best word to describe it, but it sure didn't get either of you anywhere. They say you can't fix stupid. But you can't fix evil either, and this jerk is evil. You'd have to be to hate your own mother over something as insignificant as appearance.

😈Meme1: I thought to myself, 'it's because he loves me...' I miss the times when you were still young around me.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Facepalm* oh, shoot me, please. *Tears welling*

😈Meme1: my son. Oh, my son... I miss you so much. I love you. You mean the world to me

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Sigh* Why? Why waste energy on a letter that wouldn't make a bit of difference to this creep? *Pounds table in futility* WHY!?

😈Meme1: I don't want you to cry for me, because of my death.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Expression suddenly hardening* That'd never happen! The creep would gladly sell you into slavery for a penny, turn you over to some dystopian police state on false trumped up charges, sneer at you getting tortured, and then tie you to a stake and light the fire himself and laugh like an idiot while you burn to death right in front of him! He'd do the same to his wife and kids, and his in-laws if it meant he could get a good enough chance at a grab at all their money and property! The only reason he still hasn't actually killed anybody yet is because he'd be too afraid of the law catching up with him.

😈Meme1: My son, I love you my son, I love you so much.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Facepalm* He doesn't deserve it and never did!

👹Meme2: With all my love to you,

Your mother.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Tears hair out*

The Muslim forum had version 1 going on just a little longer, and this Yahoo post added still more. This Google post had mutation two going on.

*Gritting teeth*

😈Meme1: My world shattered!!!

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Huh? *Incredulous expression* You wanted her to die, you wanted her out of your life, you got what you wanted, nimrod! Now you're trying to tell me your world shattered? Why?

😈👹Memes: Then I cried for the person who lived for me... My MOTHER

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Boy are you SLOW! So now all of a sudden, after all this time, after it's too late to try and make things up to her, you finally realized *DONG!* "OMG! She lived for me!"

Oh, you prize FATHEAD! *Scowl* Well, you've only begun to find out what it's like to have your world shatter!

😈Meme1: I am not asking you guys to forward this email to anyone.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: of course you are, or you wouldn't have even brought that up. Reverse psychology doesn't work on me. This is just a trick on your part to make people feel as if you are giving them a choice, and making sure it's laced with though of what it takes to generate feelings of obligation to do exactly that - forward!

😈Meme1: Just pause for a moment and

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Realize this story is not true, even though it packs a brutal emotional punch.

😈Meme1: pray forour parents

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Look, I don't need some chain letter telling me to pray…

😈Meme1: so that God gives them all the happiness that they rightfully deserve.......!!!! !

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Oh, dry up!

let's get something straight.

while my own parents definitely deserve to be happy, as would the mother in this downer of a story, there are parents that don't. After all, the jerk who rejected his mother in this very story was a parent himself. There, punked!

Beyond that, sad to say, but there are all too real situations where people never should've become parents, and they did not treat their kids right. Those parents don't deserve to be put on a pedestal, and this chain letter is likely to seriously offend anyone who has been mistreated by their own parents, because it self-righteously assumes all parents are good and every kid who resents their parents must always be in the wrong and always to blame.

Not true, and not cool!

👹Meme2: Send this to at least 10 people in the next 5 minutes to show you love your mother.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Look, knucklehead! The only one I have to prove that to is my mom, and I don't show my love for her or anyone else by spamming up the net with chain letters! Besides, I thought you said you weren't asking - oh, wait, you weren't… You are demanding it be forwarded.

👹Meme2: If you don't

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: You'll condemn me as some cruel jerk who rejects her mother or some such thing. Bull!

👹Meme2: then it shows you have no heart

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Scowl* Wrong! Your attempted coercion shows you to have no heart and that you are a bully! You're also a hypocrite - you rejected your own mom for no reason, and now you have the gall to accuse the rest of the human race of being heartless for not spreading your chain. You stink!

👹Meme2: Always tell someone that you love them because you never know what day

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Blah blah blah blah, they or you might die, yadda yadda yadda. Look, I'll show and tell my love in my own way and on my own time, and not because some heart-tug chain story says so.

👹Meme2: Will be their last, or your own.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Gah! *Rolling eyes* So ruddy predictable!

There are so many heart-yank-attempt memes that say you or they could die before you do this good thing and because you did that bad thing... And you can save it all by, what else? Re-sharing the chain letters!

that angle stopped working on me years ago, dude, so live with your own pile of regrets, which you deserve! No sympathy from me!

You never cared one way or another about your own mother, so why care about the rest of the world showing love, or living or dying for that matter?

👹Meme2: Always seek to resolve your problems or disagreements with loved ones

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: More advice from someone in no position to give it…Hypocrite. Besides, that was what your own mother tried to do her whole life, but you were too hateful and stubborn to listen. Was it her fault she couldn't resolve problems with her loved one? No! It was yours!

I don't have that problem. But I also know when to just let people be and not to make a big pest of myself. and sometimes, differences, disagreements etc just can't be resolved. Then it's best to move on. Too bad your mother couldn't do that.

👹Meme2: Because if either of you should pass on before, the one who is left alive

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Yammer yammer yammer nag nag nag snivel snivel snivel preach preach preach - heard it all before, more times than I can count. Sing a new song already!

👹Meme2: will have the rest of their life to ponder those unresolved feelings but will never find closure.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Your problem, not mine… *Cold unsympathetic stare*

👹Meme2: And closure usually brings Peace...

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Yeah. Well, you gave your mother no peace, nothing but heartache, so now you can just live with it…Until I kill you in another piece of fiction!
