Today, my daughter posted a beautiful, touching status on my Facebook wall for Mother's Day. It wasn't so touching that she'd just copied and pasted the one I wrote for her grandmother and sent it back to me, unedited. FML

It's not being lazy.. It's advanced recycling?

no no fyl op because u are ignorant for saying your comment was beautiful

22 - Ignorant? Maybe arrogant, but not ignorant.

I don't find that lazy. If my mom was to write something for my grandmom, and I believe that that something applies to my mother, I would copy paste to show that I hold her in the same way she her mom.

she probably was just letting her mom know she feel the same way

She just thought it was so well written lol

Yeah so it's like a compliment to you that she really liked what you wrote

Then she could have just liked what she wrote on Grandma's wall.

If its the thought that counts...does that mean that post meant nothing?

It's the copy-and-paste that counts, I suppose.

That is like a whole new breed of lazy

Because facebook is the most appropriate place for that to begin with. Even a simple card shows more thought and sentiment.

Or a phone call... Posting it on a wall is more about showing everyone else you love your mother than it is about the mother knowing it

She could also make an electronic postcard and mail it.

I agree. People use facebook for everything now, like they want everyone to know that they love their mom.

Realizing that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, she knew that any other way wouldn't truly be the best.

Also, this might just be me but I really can't stand people who see each other in person on a regular basis and congratulate themselves over social networks instead of in person. OP might not see her mother and daughter regularly in person, so this might not apply to her but I'm just talking in general. I just feel like posting congratulatory statuses on the facebook wall of someone you regularly see in person is just seeking attention from others who also read it. At least use the private messaging system. Again, this isn't aimed at the OP, I'm just talking in general.

That is completly false #7. People Never use Facebook as an attention seeking tool. On an unrelated note, be sure to check out my page and 'like' my recent posts about my high paying promotion, my new car, and how I have the greatest boyfriend in the entire world. But, be sure to return later to back me up about how said boyfriend is an asshole because of our recent fight and ask questions about my ambiguous status that I say is noones business but I post anyways for the world to see and comment on. Careful though, if you don't post a response supporting my thoughts and beliefs, I will unfriend you and talk crap about you in my next status.

I post birthday wishes on my friend's walls when I wake up in the morning or early afternoon depending on the day. Then later I generally call or see them in person. That way, even if I get swamped with other things, I'm made some sort of well wishing.

I text the people I'm good friends with when it's midnight of their birthdays. I usually save facebook posts for not-as-close friends, family, or acquaintances I don't feel weird talking to... Or a canadian friend whom otherwise it'd cost me 10 cents or so to text to. Saying it verbally is always the best method, Facebook is (and always should be) a last resort.

Imitation is the best form of flattery...right mom?

why did this get a thumbs down?!

look to the pride side.it's your day

Kids these days. At least she made more effort than most kids today.

Excuse me? I happened to make breakfast, clean the house, and cook dinner for my mother today. You are making a large generalization here.

I'm on the exact same boat as you #21. Kids, believe it or not, do still have manners

Just for one day?

I find it hilarious that this chick is only 14 and she's trying to make a "kids these days" comment.

I'm actually more mature than many of my peers, and I am disappointed for the fact that many kids around me act the age of a 5 year old. Sorry for the generalisation, I did the same kind of things that you, #21, did for Mother's Day, but in my experience with other people of my generation, it has been no effort at all from them.

Fairly certain every young person believes that they're the mature one and their peers are children at one point.

If you have to make it a point to say that you are 'mature', then you probably aren't. Maturity will display itself through your behavior.
