Oh yeah? Come back when both your kids and your dog die.
Oh yeah? Come back to me when your kids and dog die, you go through a divorce, you lose your job and someone steals your boat!
What do you get when you play a country song backwards?
You get your wife back, you get your kids back, you get your dog back, you get your truck back...
my dad told me a joke a long time ago I didn’t remember it and I was sad but this is the joke!! thank you
Oh yeah? Come back when you can't recall the taste of food, nor the sound of water, nor the touch of grass.
Sneaky little hobbitses!
Oh yeah? Come back when for too long you've been parched of thirst and unable to quench it, been starving to death and haven’t died, when you feel nothing, not the wind on your face nor the spray of the sea nor the warmth of a woman’s flesh, and you start believing in ghost stories because you’re in one!
Oh yeah? Come back and talk to me when you have literally died.
Please... It would really help my reputation as a credible medium.
Oh yeah? Come back when you have to erase half the universe.
It's also a nice song.
When self-driving cars hit the market, country singers can sing about their trucks leaving them too.
Sounds like a Rascal Flatts song: Backwards. But backwards.
Can't be country, the truck didn't break down.
Real country boys don't let they's trucks break down.
We aren't talking about real country boys though, we're talking about country singers..
Country boys: Actual farm hands Country singers: Speak like farm hands but their boots cost $2K and they’ve probably never been on a farm.
I walk and talk like field hand, but the boots I'm wearin' cost 3 grand. I write songs about ridin' tractors from the comfort of my private jet
Come back to me when everyone you know is dead and you’re ALSO dead!
But your dog is alive but their kids are dead too and your own dog blames it on you so shits on your grave even though it totally wasn't your fault.
Come back when your dog steals your boat!
If I were OP I would have just played his game and lied about 2 miscarriages, a 25 yr old and toddler both dying to different tragic accidents as well as having 3 disabled kids, a wife who never loved me, and being abandoned by my parents at the age of 2 to grow up in the projects.
Also my hamster is sick
No! Not the hamster. That's too far.
Come back when you have two beautiful athletic sons. And they lose their legs.
Oh yeah? Come back when your kids and your dog die, but it was because you believed they weren’t your kids and dog because your husband did an inception on your dream within a dream and he forgot that it was just a dream but you didn’t and now you just want to kill yourself and wake up to the real world but he keeps stopping you so you have to haunt his dreams and sometimes turn violent and almost ruin the whole world. Come back then.
Oh yeah? Come back when your husband kills you because he has an affair with the dog and the kid isn’t even yours.
Oh yeah? Come back when your wife died, your dog got killed and your car stolen.
You guys are so cynical, obviously he's not gate keeping anything.
He's obviously a necromancer and as everyone knows necromancy only works on members of one's own species due to soul resonance. So he's saying sorry for your lost pet but he can do nothing about that, however if you ever have a dead child you should come speak to him as he will be more than willing to pierce the veil between worlds and bring them back as an undead.
Do you think the necromancer's dog could bring his dog back?
Ah the tragic irony, the necromancer is a cat person
Edit: my first of any silver/gold/platinum is now taken. Knew I made a good choice leaving Twitter and instagram
A nekomancer, if you will.
Yeah but it died
A necromancer is just a doctor who is late.
What a weirdly wholesome interpretation. Best thing I've read here today.
Optimism is alive and well at least. Come back to this guy when your optimism dies.
I logged in just to upvote this. Thank you for the laugh, you ridiculous fool.
Awww, warm fuzzies! This needs to be higher.
*Persons kid dies*
Sorry for your loss and I wish you well.
But come speak to me when 2 of your kids die minimum.
Come speak to me when you’ve lost none of your family members but are alone anyway.
oh hey dats me
Would you like a hug?
Man, I mean, in reality I have an almost annoyingly large and loving family/friend group but for two reasons I’d still like to collect on your offer. One; who wouldn’t like a hug? And second; I do know a few people who, for whatever reasons, have no contact with their relatives and few if any close friends to rely on for support. So if I should see one of those people and they’re having a rough go of it, even if lacking a support group is their own fault, I can give them one hug from me and one from u/Drakmanka and now they’ll have had at least two hugs during a low point. Everyone wins, including you, because I am an absolute joy to hug.
Wow, very cool of that person. I hate it when people ‘flex’ their losses or hardships to seem morally superior.
You don't even know what loss is until you've lost a candy bar in the cushions of your couch.
Shut up u don’t know anything I lost my crumb in the couch five decades ago, still in mourning. Come back when u know what real pain is
I find food crumbs in my bra all the time, you can have those
So lucky! I wish I could just have a look in my bra whenever I'm hungry.
The trick is to wear a bra, and then shove food in your face while lounging on the couch.
Plot twist, op is a man.
Weak, I lost 15 guitar picks over the course of three days
It's funny because pain means bread in French
You will never understand true loss until a waitress is asking you if you want soup or salad and you answer salad but just as she's walking away you realize you really wanted soup, but your chance to order it is forever gone.
I am so so sorry for your loss.
The story about loosing a whole cooked turkey because a fucking cat broke in and stole it still makes me laugh, i mean cry.
What about a story of dropping a pot of chili.
A candy bar?? Try an apple pencil cap! They don't even sell replacements!
You don’t know what loss is until you buy a chocolate bar and forget it in your car during the summer
Sorry for your loss and I wish you well.
But come speak to me when you have kids and one of them takes your candy bar and runs away. It's not real loss until you've lost both your candy bar AND kid.
Don't tell me about being sad until you've dropped your last joints worth of weed on carpet.
What do you know. I lost a celebrity the other year.
I once had a person on Reddit tell me that bodyshaming a thin person is totally okay, because thin people don't have it hard. Bodyshaming fat people is the worst thing in the world, but insulting a thin person because they are thin is fine, because being thin is a universal beauty standard so if one or two people tell you you're ugly it's not that bad. I told them, that I'm underweight because I have an illness and that it's pretty hurtful if people tell me I look like a skeleton or that I'm far too thin to be pretty and that it hurts just as much as if someone calls an overweight person ugly. They were pretty rude about it and told me that "maybe they are fat but at least their body functions properly ( unlike mine with my illness)"
Wow already downvoted after 49 seconds, that's a new record. Seems that there is not only one person with that kind of mindset
I'm fat as fuck. Bodyshaming is never okay. Everyone has their own struggles, and it's not okay to insult anyone. I'm sorry people were assholes to you.
FWIW you're already at positive karma on my screen.
Thank you :) and I absolutely agree, everyone has their own package to carry and you can never know what kind of hardships someone goes through..
Regarding the points, it's +5 for me at the moment too, I was just baffled because my comment wasn't even up for a minute and was already at 0..
I was just baffled because my comment wasn't even up for a minute and was already at 0..
i don't think anyone should ever be shamed for something out of their control. if it's in your control i think it's important that you be encouraged to get healthy, but never shamed - that just makes it harder for the person to make a change.
Body shaming goes both ways and its bull shit.
Yeah, my mother does this shit. It bothers me greatly, because it feels like it cheapens the actual tragedies my family has been through (I lost my dad, stepdad, and younger brother all to horrific and unexpected deaths). What's worse is because of the tragic nature of the subject, people never know what to say, and she exploits that. And she wonders why nobody will ever talk to her anymore. Ugh.
Life is a suffering contest and I'm winning!
I never understood why people like to play the pain olympics
Don't have emotions if your tragedy isn't as significant as mine.
For real, I hate it when people do stuff like this. This is the reason people dont like talking about what's wrong with them. Because maybe to them, their problems are destroying them but a buddy has it worse or just the general idea that their problems are tiny.
Sure, maybe in the grand scheme, a high schooler stressin about college is a tiny problem. But to them it might be like theres an earthquake and no one else is feeling it. Maybe you barely get by but you dont ask for help because at least you arent homeless or starving yet. Your problems affect you, so looking at it in the grand scheme isnt always a good thing. Of course sometimes youll be over reacting, but often times the problems that rock your world are defining moments in your life and not tiny in YOUR grand scheme.
I'm starting to lose a friendship to someone having that attitude about anything nowadays. You can't be stressed because X stresses them more, you can't be tired because X make them lose sleep more, you can't wonder about your future because their own is X, you can't miss drinking something because they miss X more, you can't be busy because X makes them busier. And so on.
Now I just gave up sharing anything, and instead mentally prepare to listen through them ranting every time every day.
That's a relationship I wouldn't want to be a part of either. Though if you haven't already tried, maybe confronting your friend about that attitude directly could help salvage things?
Disclaimer: rant below.
I cut myself off from my then best mates because of this. They weren't always like this but during senior year, and especially after graduating, they turned into huge assholes.
It still pisses me off thinking about it. Even when I became seriously ill and my life was falling apart, they would make fun of me. Not in a friendly way either. But when I teased them even a little about their struggles, I was the evil one.
I think I hate them. Friendship was really important to me, I always tried to be understanding and a good friend. I guess I was naive and too trusting. They took advantage of that trust.
Anyway, my regret is I didn't cut them off sooner. Your situation may differ but what I've learned from this is friends should make you feel relaxed and secure. You shouldn't have to constantly consider what you're gonna say. Also these people will always tell you you're being sensitive. In reality, they are the assholes.
This always bothers me when people say something like a person is too privileged to experience hardship
Like sure my life as a straight white male in a 1st world country may not be as hard as a black gay woman living in the ghetto, but she's not a starving sex slave in Thailand so she better shut the fuck up about her privileged life too /s
There's always gonna be worse, but somebody having a worse problem than me doesn't make my problem insignificant
Kid you not I worked with this douche who asked me about my “past” unprovoked at that it was a spur and random and before I said anything he proceeded to stop me and go “Never mind it’s probably not even close to mine.” And proceeds to tell brag about living in the slums of Detroit. We live in Texas. It irked me just because I went through 14 years of being called some of the most racist shit you would ever hear because I was a Half Hispanic half white guy growing up in the middle of a KKK infested town and honestly the other reason it annoyed me is because somebody actually likes to brag about living a shitty life. Like what is there to be proud of. I literally hate the crap I had to grow around and I’m not about to sit here and brag to people about the life I lived growing up.
I can’t believe someone would say that...
This is reddit. The land of one-uppers and attention whores.
This is an internet-wide problem. People are emboldened to be assholes to others, even on Facebook when their names are displayed for all to see. I saw a very similar set of comments on there in just the past week.
This is reddit.
This is an internet-wide problem.
Did.. did you just one up them?
It's a society wide problem, the internet just brings it out because everyone has a platform plus the feeling of comfort and/or anonymity behind a screen.
"My ancestors came over on the Mayflower"
"Well my ancestors came over on the Aprilflower so we've been here longer than you."
This is definitely not just a reddit thing lmao
I call one uppers, green mushrooms. Can’t stand them.
When my father died, 12 years ago, I went to work the next day. A Co-Worker of mine literally told me, that the loss of her father was way worse than mine. I was 20 back then, she must have been between 50-60.
Having lost a child and beloved pets, I can verify.
Grief is grief. It's all consuming and awful no matter who you're grieving for. People need to show love and kindness; not police who has it the worst.
Honestly that's even more disrespectful to their own kids.
I don't want to be a ghost looking over the shoulder of my mom using me as a pity tool to belittle other people.
Shit that was exactly what I was thinking... who wants be used as a bargaining chip in the sad olympics? Especially when stereotypically, most kids love dogs, and would rather comfort someone who was sad about their dog than belittle their sadness as unimportant.
How low do you have to be to one up someones pet dying
Think that’s sad? Come back when you have kids and lose one
OP, I'm sorry this person turned your tragedy into a competition.
That said, come back when you lose a kid and someone tries to one-up that.
I had kids and I lost them...
Nvm guys turns out they were hiding behind the couch
I had someone say something along these lines after my cat died. I've never understood what this accomplishes.
It accomplished knowing who to unfriend.
Didn't you know that a gold medal in the Suffering Olympics is one of the most important achievements on social media?
Some people, myself included, just don't connect with animals on as deep and personal a level as some other people. I'd imagine this is part of why people would say stuff like this. But in reality just because I don't connect with pets that way doesn't mean I can't acknowledge that other people do. Some people though refuse to acknowledge the validity of experiences not their own, and then they say shit like this.
I can only imagine losing a child is 100x worse, but I had the same with my dog when he passed. "He's just a dog, you'll get over it" I saw red almost immediately.
I had him for 18 years of my life, I don't have children, but he was damn near like having one to me. No one should have to feel invalidated for the loss of someone/pet they lost. It's frustrating to hear.
I'm sorry for your loss, too, but come back to me when an evil snake cult murders your whole village and then you get enslaved pushing a mill wheel around for 20 years or so.
Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, then to hell with you!
So sad but speak to me when you have lost Grandchildren.
so sad but speak to me when you lose a yourself
Look If you had One shot Or one opportunity To seize everything you ever wanted In one moment Would you capture it Or just let it slip?
Yo His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgettin' What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out He's chokin', how, everybody's jokin' now The clocks run out, times up, over, blaow! Snap back to reality, oh there goes gravity Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked He's so mad, but he won't give up that easy? No He won't have it, he knows his whole back city's ropes It don't matter, he's dope, he knows that, but he's broke He's so stacked that he knows, when he goes back to his mobile home, that's when its Back to the lab again yo, this whole rhapsody He better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him
Way to steal the thunder bro
Hello I'm here
Wow. I've lost a child. A month after losing a parent. It's okay to cry over the loss of a family member, dog, cat or rabbit. It's okay to cry when a a favorite celebrity dies. It's okay to cry when a character dies. And when it happens, those are all valid times to be sad and there is no time no compare sadness!
Yeah we don’t need to play the suffering olympics. Everyone has their own pain based on their own circumstances
This happened to me at work. I left early because my wife and I had to put our dog down. Came into work the next day and just felt super sad but I wanted to work to take my mind off things. One of the guys I worked with tells me it was only a dog and he lost his son. Apparently not only did I enter a sadness contest, but I lost.
Fuck him, fuck him so goddamn hard. I had to put my dog down unexpectedly in the middle of a work day, and VERY luckily for me, my boss at the time is an absolutely massive dog lover (she spent >$10k for one of her dog's cancer treatments). Gave me the following day off even, I couldn't appreciate the gesture enough. No matter how long it's been since, here's some condolences from afar and compassion in place for the asshole who decided to be just that.
A family friend used to be a cop way back in the 80's and during a briefing for the new guys his sergeant was reading the standard stuff like "you must show up for duty in x circumstances". One of those said your dog dying was not an excuse for missing work. After reading that the sergeant paused and said "You know what, that's bullshit. If your dog dies and you're not broken up about it you aren't human."
I’m sorry you lost your doggo. I’m sure they thought of you as the best human ever!
Losing someone is always heartbreaking, no matter how many legs they have.
Losing someone is always heartbreaking, no matter how many legs they have.
Exactly, couldn't have said it any better myself. Thanks, and cheers.
Some people love their dogs more than their kids. Just ask my mom.
People can be such assholes
My mom lost my brother and my sister and she was right there being torn up when my dog died two months ago. She still is torn up. He was like her granddog.
I don't get this.
Sorry for your loss
You ever start to talk about your childhood with a group of people? Any people at all? In any context? No matter what you have to say, someone will chime in about how THEIR parents were so much worse then yours, and then someone else will start fighting with that person about how THEIR childhood was WAY more fucked up, and EVERY SINGLE TIME it turns into a goddamn tragedy pissing match.
I have never met another person who wasn't completely convinced they were ruined by their parents and really, really possessive about it.
I have a friend whos a compulsive liar and its like that any time I bring up family
Who wants to be the best at being sad?
Checked their profile including their deleted post begging for help/money. The guy sounds like a dumpster fire both IRL and online.
This reminds me of an important lesson my therapist taught me about trauma.
I was in counseling because I had been assaulted—mugged at gunpoint and beaten in the process. It had been 10 years since the incident and I still didn’t feel “over it.” I was still terrified of being in public parks alone, I still had flashbacks, etc.
I told her I feel pathetic that I can’t get over the mugging because other people close to me had been through worse things, like my mom who lost both of her parents, was adopted, and then her adoptive mother died too.
My therapist told me to stop measuring my trauma against the trauma of others. She said something along the lines of this:
“It might not be the worst thing that could possibly happen to a human being. But it’s the worst thing that’s ever happened to you. It’s all relative. Of course it sticks with you, it’s the worst experience you’ve ever had.”
It might've been a childhood dog, therapy dog, emotional support dog, service dog, or even just a very loyal and loving pet. Any form of death is upsetting.
At work we have a fund to get coworkers cards and a gift for various events, including sympathy. One coworker refused to sign a card for a coworker whose cat had died. She said ‘I don’t sign cards for dead pets’. I didn’t say anything about it since she is entitled to how she feels, but I never looked at her the same again. It’s not really a card for the dead animal, it’s a card showing support and care for your coworker who is going through the grieving process. I wonder how lonely it must feel to go through life lacking so much empathy for other people, but then I realize, it’s not lonely at all, people like that are dead inside.
Truth. You’re not sending a card to the pet, it’s for the person going through a hard time.
I lost my ball python of 24 years a couple of days ago. I was a kid when I got him.
Even people with snake phobias were sending their condolences. They probably couldn’t care less about him, but they were sad for me and still sent their love and support.
It meant so much. I lost my lil buddy, but I realized how many wonderful friends I have.
*thing that contradicts first sentence*
When my sister died, obviously my parents were destroyed, and it was a heavy impact on us all, but when my cat died, my mom was the most sympathetic out of everyone in my household, loss is loss, and it affects everyone differently, but that doesn’t mean your loss is bullshit because it wasn’t human.
"you must be this sad to enter"
What an ass.
The worst type of gatekeepers are those who pull shit like this, reminds me of those "YOU CAN'T BE DEPRESSED BECAUSE YOU'RE (), ONLY () CAN BE DEPRESSED" posts. Like seriously.
Fuck that. Second worst day of my life was losing my dog. Second only to losing a parent.
There's some real false empathy in that first line.
Come speak to me when you lose your kids, your wife, your wealth, and your health, only to have them restored once God wins a bet with Satan, bitch.
Grief is grief.
Oh you lost a kid? I lost a whole goddamn planet! #MakePlutoGeatAgain
My only response to that would be
You deserved it.
Would probably get them pretty well and would make me feel better seeing their reaction.
It's just like when you say you are tired and the person with kids says "you don't know what tired is, you don't have kids."
Fuck you and your shit, I care more about my dogs than I do about some random snotty kids.
My wife and I lost our daughter after 20 weeks and she posted on Facebook how she felt about the news (naturally) and some guy told her, “stop being so negative, we’ve had three miscarriages in the last two years” then he posted pictures of three deceased fetuses on her post.
Why people try to put barometers and qualifications on grief is beyond me.
Why do people try to turn hardship into some kind of pissing contest?
"Come speak to me" as if anyone seeing this comment thought "damn i should talk to that guy he looks like the good person to talk to while grieving the death of a loved one"
Come speak to me when your entire family dies in a nuclear explosion!
Ah yes, the depression olympics, the peak of gatekeeping
Come talk to me when you lose your Zelda Ocarina of Time game save, which was right AFTER the water temple.
What a wanker. As if they’ve got a monopoly on being fucking sad.
Tfw when dogs and children are both helpless and dependent animals and you can bond with both
God what an asshole. Losing a dog is awful. Let’s not compare misfortunes please.
Call me when you lose the only hat that ever fit perfectly on your big ass head. Then you’ll know sadness.
Edit : Your!
Weird flex but okay
With all due respect you all don't know what loss is until you lose your fantasy league championship by one yard.
