it was simply a joke because the fml is beyond whack. it seems like her mom was simply joking and she took it too seriously. an if the mom was serious, this person needs to get checked and you can get some stds from sitting on the toilet and im sorry, i would never use someones else's razor. especially if they have something. i dont know about you.
11- u just said she should get checked if she was serious then agreed that her fears were legitimate 63- what else would cooties be refering too. And cooties is not a childish disease... It is a VERY serious, HIGHLY contageous, deadly, imaginary disease. 97- you can not say chances are not slim because it happened once. I'm quite sure happening once is as slim as chances get...
It appears that your mom's razor sharp words have cut you too deep.
Okay, I am having a confusion moment. You put it in quotes, which infers that your mother was referring to herself having something, however, that wouldn't really be an FML. So was your mom talking about you? If so, that wouldn't be something you should put quotes around.
You are confused because you are reading the sentence structure improperly as well as misusing the word quotation in the situation. Op is quoting what her mother said verbatim, not in the implying sense quotes are used for, which is what you're thinking...improperly as well, but enough nit-picking... see? Grammar Nazis have a use.
Some grammatical freaks will argue that if you're changing a pronoun in a quotation but not the antecedent, as 8 did here, then you should denote this action by using [brackets] around the altered pronoun or 'single quotes' around the entire quotation. It's a matter of opinion though, just like the Oxford comma.
