Today, I was woken up early in the morning by the sound of my mother frantically crying out for help. Apparently she had tried, unsuccessfully, to "end the suffering" of an injured squirrel by drowning it in the toilet. How? By placing it into the bowl and smothering it with clothes. My clothes. FML

#1 Yeah atleast she tried to kill a squirrel to end it's pain by drowning it because I'm sure that's fun, being drowned to death, and she failed ontop of that.
God knows what they did to it afterwards.

The squirrel probably just had a limp or something.

lol you gotta understand.. it was dying and my mother does not know how to handle this situation with any normal amount of rational thought.. she tried to do what was best.. what she should have done was called someone that actually knew what to do.. lol

today I was going about my business collecting nuts since I'm a squirrel and all, when I stubbed my toe on a branch then some crazy lady tried to drown me in her own urine. FML

1- that's what your dad said when your mom tried not to get pregnant with you. Okay that was unnecessary but a sudden evil urge came over me *evil laugh*

Why, mom?
Couldn't you just have burned my clothes instead?
toilet water and squirrel blood...yeah, that's exactly what the washing instructions say on my $80 jeans.

O.o you're making jokes when in fact it is not funny, when you're at that age where your children want to put you in a home, and you go and they abuse you. Remember this day. Js I will never put my mother or any other loved one in a home.


57- There are 3 people in my family that work in a nursing home and they have never abused the patients there. They go out of their way to provide the best care for them. Most of the injuries are cause by the patients themselves. The patients may forget though due to dementia and Alzheimer's, and they blame it on the nurses/doctors. So before you go around talking crap about the care nursing homes provide actually find legit evidence and not rumors or falsified statements.

No matter how good the service the nursing home is, i feel like that isnt much of an existance. When and if i reach the age that i need to be taken care of is when i roll into a mall with a bomb stapped to my wheelchair. Because thats the way to go out.

Homes are only good to get rid of unwanted trash. My mother will live with me, and my father will be in a home and have no visitors.

223, That is the stupidest shit I've ever heard. Some people are not able to be around 24/7 to keep an eye on their parents/grandparents and ensure they are safe, ESPECIALLY those with serious conditions. You may have a job where you work from home, most of us don't, so don't insult people who simply don't have the resources to care for people and survive at the same time. Dipshit.

it is possible to drown a fish, just thought I'd let you know, if you put a fish in a tank which is too small and don't change the water often enough it uses all the oxygen in the water and drowns (awaiting down votes)

Your all complete idiots idiots. He's making reference to the fact you flush dead or sick goldfish down the toilet, not that water can drown a fish. He's making a joke because she's trying to dispose of a squirrel in a similar way, but apparently most of you don't get it.

  imaginaryvoice  |  18

No one is an idiot here. The only thing I see are a few people stating their opinions, and a jackass.

I see the reference he was trying to make. But OP had said that her mother had tried to put the squirrel out of its misery by drowning it. Therefore, I don't really see how stating that it's not a goldfish fits in unless you are trying to drown the goldfish, to put it out of its misery.

What I don't understand here is how it was so easy for you to catch on to keven501's reference, but so difficult for you to catch on to mine.

Just as obvious as it was to you that 6 was joking, it was just as obvious to the rest of us that 18, and every comment after her, was also joking. The jokes appear to have been lost on you, however.

If I were you, I would reevaluate who the actual "fucking idiot" is.

152 - definitely humane as well, flushing SICK goldfish. I wonder if your parents did that to you as a kid "omg, he's got a cold, quick, flush him!"

  iamyourgod  |  3

169 - the fact that that I typed that on an iPhone makes "your" a insignificant error, it could have been much worse.

And no, you can not drown a fish. Drowning requires lungs by definition. You can asphyxiate a fish, or deplete them of oxygen, but this is not drowning. Putting fish in fresh water or salt water is more like poisoning than drowning.

169 - "salt water fish environment"


239 - I am also on my phone, but I never misuse your/you're, were/we're/where, their/there, or other commonly misused homonyms. Phones aren't an excuse for laziness.


Actually no if you're a man you'll use a 10 or an 8 gauge. Fucking blow it's head off. And no I'm allowed to swear whenever the fuck I want, what am I going to punish myself? But YOU GUYS are not allowed.
